WW1: The Mad Max Aesthetic

There is an element of Mad Max to some of the WW1 combat gear. A motorcycle despatch rider and a colleague consult a map while wearing their gas masks in 1917. This could be straight out of the Road Warrior or the Thunderdome.

Mad Max 2 opening sequence showed real footage from WWII but the captions talked about the "nuclear War", maybe George Miller was saying that WWII was the beginning of the end.
