Greetings, your were inquiring about the Great Martian War video. I did some research as to the original author: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgZU6YxJ7b4

It is apparent the History Channel produced a two hour speculative history, with fake documentary. Rather interesting.

They used both real footage and reenactment for the WW1 footage... the rest, well, that was the fun part.
