Implementation At the beginning of World War 1, most of the armies expected, and prepared for a brief war, and to win it quickly, and decisively. This was not the case though, and the soldiers of both sides realized that to be dug into the ground with bolt action rifles, and assisted by machine guns, was to make yourself almost invinceable. As the war further progressed, they trenches of both sides became deeper, and more complex. The result was large areas of interlocking defensive works, which could resist artillery bombardments and mass infantry assault. http://images4.fotki.com/v45/photos/1/133612/492565/FoxholeSoldier-vi.jpg Infantry The common infantry in World War One Trench Warfare was equipped with four weapons.
Although the tank was extremely unreliable, it was a great factor to deal with the horrors of trench warfare and rescued some of the mobility in the Western Front. On the 15th of September, 1916 history was made. Captain H. W. Mortimore of Britain led a D1 tank into battle at the infamous Delville
Shaun Chaban World War 1: The Life in Trenches World War 1 is perhaps best known for being a war fought in trenches (Grolier 94), ditches dug out of the ground to give troops protection from enemy artillery and machine-gun fire. In Erich Remarque's novel All Quite on the Western Front that is exactly how he described trench warfare. Remarque showed World War 1 as a war fought in trenches, which he depicted well leaving out only a few minor details. The trenches spread from the East to the West. By the end of 1914 trenches stretched all along the 475 miles front (Grolier 94) between the Swiss border and the Channel coast.
However, while the French were the first to use a gas against an enemy, the Germans had been giving a great deal of thought to the use of poison gas as a way of defeating enemy. The First World War One has invented new weapons to support the front and improve the ability of killing the enemies. Among these, poison gas may be the most terrible fear of all the soldiers. It could be used on the trenches even if no attack was going on. The gas cylinders were simply placed on the front line and in front of the enemy.
Violence in the world today has increased rapidly with technology playing a key role in the progression. There have been many changes throughout the years as to which we would expect; however, many of these changes involve increased levels of violence and many tragedies within society. There are some individuals that feel the world is no more violent at this present time than it has been through the ages of civilization…I will address the history of violence and follow the progression as to show the major changes that have surfaced throughout the years. Violence is documented back to biblical times with many wars. These wars were brutal and many lives were lost in the process of fighting.
Rats weren’t the only problem concerning infection. Lice were common and cause a disease called Trench fever. Trench fever caused severe pain following a high fever. Recovery for this took up to twelve weeks but many soldiers didn’t make it considering the cause of Trench fever wasn’t discovered until 1918. Trench foot was another deadly disease caused by cold and wet conditions.
So once they touched down on land they would contract this disease. This still happens even today, with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. People are just so careless sometimes. This disease has ruined many peoples lives from the sixteenth century all the way to the twenty-first
(2) Sir Douglas Haig explained the importance of using heavy artillery at the Battle of the Somme in his book Dispatches, that was published after the war. The enemy's position to be attacked was of a very formidable character, situated on a high, undulating tract of ground. The first and second systems each consisted of several lines of deep trenches, well provided with bomb-proof shelters and with numerous communication trenches connecting them. The front of the trenches in each system was protected by wire entanglements, many of them in two belts forty yards broad, built of iron stakes, interlaced with barbed-wire, often almost as thick as a man's finger. Defences of this nature could only be attacked with the prospect of success after careful artillery
Many factors we causing all of this, and these are just a few. When soldiers at the Western Front of World War I, and they heard a whistle, they would have to run over and try to take the next trench. This is what caused so many deaths in the Great War. They would run over, sometimes even with just bayonets and charge towards the machine gun fire, hoping to not get hit. This often cause great anxiety for some soldiers because they knew if
This was very important when they were defending themselves from their enemies they need very sharp objects such as spears, swords and knife as well as shields to defend when the times came. The Problems They Faced. The Romans were one of the biggest issues that the Celts faced. The Romans came from Rome in Italy, fighting other tribes gaining land across most of Europe. In AD 43 they came and invaded Britain.
