Black Watch Snipers


2018 Best History Documentary Program or Series

Black Watch Snipers is a feature length docudrama about a sniper platoon in the Second World War seen through the eyes of five men from Canada’s most storied Regiment – the Black Watch. Suffering more casualties than any other Canadian regiment during the war, this band of brothers witnessed enormous sacrifices and together endured the ultimate test of combat as they participated in the liberation of Western Europe from the clutches of Nazi tyranny. Armed with nothing but their wits and sniper rifles, these five men not only survived one of the greatest sagas in Canadian history, but four of them are still alive to talk about it. This is their story.
