Communication – What types were used and how effective they were. Gas – What effects this had on soldiers and the result for future warfare. Tanks – Their introduction and their usefulness as a weapon of war. Machine guns – Improvements in their design and their use on land and in the air. The Beginnings of Trench Warfare Trench warfare was first started by the Germans.
Ships called Corvettes were popular; they were mostly used for shipping ammunition from North America to Europe. Submarines were the most deadly since they were the ones who set off bombs under the water towards their enemies. The battle on the sea with submarines all began on 1943. The German had 240 submarines in one group attacking allies. The German submarines sank about 700 merchant ships before the allies started
Was General Haig a Bucher or Hero? The battle of the Somme took place from 1st July to 13 November in France near the River Somme; the battle was a big part of the First World War which was between the Triple Entente (Britain, Russia and France) and the Triple Alliance (Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary) which was one of the most devastating battle the world had ever seen as It took so many lives within hours of the start of the battle. The Somme was the battle in which Britain and Germany fought a horrendous battle in where innocent lives were lost in the first hour or though. General Haig who was a new commander and in charge of the British army was the man who initially came up with the plan which consisted of innocent lives being lost, however he did not regret it, he thought it was a worthy sacrifice which led to the Victory of Britain. Haig only intention was to breakthrough to get the German trenches and defeat the army once and for all.
In time, however, technology began to produce new offensive weapons, such as gas warfare and the tank.  After the First Battle of the Marne (5–12 September 1914), both Entente and German forces began a series of outflanking manoeuvres, in the so-called "Race to the Sea". Britain and France soon found themselves facing an uninterrupted line of entrenched German forces from Lorraine to Belgium's coast.  Britain and France sought to take the offensive, while Germany defended the occupied territories. Consequently, German trenches were much better constructed than those of their enemy; Anglo-French trenches were only intended to be "temporary" before their forces broke through German defences.
In 1941 it defeated the Yugoslav and Greek armies, but did not have the needed weapons for mobile warfare. In 1941 it also defeated the huge Russian army all the way to Moscow, but because of the logistic neglect it was defeated by Russia's endless size and extreme weather, (2world). This demonstrates the strength of the German military mainly through the fact that the Germans were the first to use this effective style of warfare. It validates how the Germans could hit hard, and fast making the use of
On Raven Hill The exceptional speed with which Germany defeated France in 1940 sent shock waves around the world. The first-rate military power had been completely defeated in just six weeks. The French Army relied on the doctrine and weapons used during World War I, while the German Army was confident in the new weapons and training they had learned. The French created a line they thought would be impenetrable and called it The Maginot Line. The Maginot Line defenses were involved in battle to protect France’s borders with Germany.
Militarism The European nations were involved in an arms race to produce the best weapons and the biggest well trained army. France and Germany had more than doubled their armies since the Franco-Prussian war in which France lost. Britain and Germany were involved in a competition to control the seas. Britain had introduced ‘the dreadnought’, the most advanced and powerful battle ship of that time. Germany quickly tried to produce battleships to counter it.
This new born and growing reputation speculated among the Nazi officials and Hitler himself, and ultimately served as a starting block for Speer’s rise to prominence. The death of Paul Troost in 1934 combined with Speer’s appointment of Reich Architect continued his climb to prominence. After Troost’s death, Speer was commissioned to design the Nuremberg Rally. Speer used this opportunity to show off his talent to its extreme and created a display that is widely remembered and admire today for its mass propaganda use. The Rally designs including black, white and red Nazi flags, each ten metres high, which hung virtually, which created a column effect, portraying an element of Neo-classical architecture.
The Bombing of Dresden took place between 13 February and 14 February 1945 by the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and the United States Air Force. Only twelve weeks after the bombing Nazi Germany, surrendered. This bombing of Dresden was one of the most brutal and most controversial bombings in World War II, because Dresden was a very charming cultural place of little or no military importance and the city was also known as the "Florence on the Elbe“. Recent research suggests that 35,000 were killed but some German sources have said that it was over 100,000 people who died in the heavy bombing. The bombing was tactically necessary from the Allied point of view.
