Trench warfare is a form of land warfare using occupied fighting lines consisting largely of trenches, in which troops are significantly protected from the enemy's small arms fire and are substantially sheltered from artillery. The most prominent case of trench warfare is the Western Front in World War I.I
Soldiers didn’t get too much sleep if they did it would be in the afternoon. Millions of rats infested the trenches some grew to be as big as cats, the soldiers also had to deal with lice.Some trenches were about six feet deep and three feet wide.Each Morning and Evening troops would climb up the trench with a rifle and bayonet ready for an unsuspecting attack. Soldiers would go on night raids were they would sneak into No Mans Land and once inside they would eavesdrop in order to get an advance on an upcoming attack.
Poison gas was probably the most feared of all weapons in WW1. Poison gas was indiscriminate and could be used on trenches even when no attack was going on. The first recorded gas attack was by the french. In August 1914, the french used tear gas gernades containing xylyl bromide on germans. It was used by the french to stop the seemingly unstoppable Germany advancing throughout Belgium.
There were total of 22 tanks attempted during the WW1. The tanks had an interesting role during the WW1, the tank was first used at the little known Battle of Flers in September 1916. It did a great job to end the trench warfare and brought back some mobility to the Western Front. WW1 tanks were very slow, they could not exceed 4 miles per hour. They have the ability to turn sharply at the top speed, climb 5-feet parapet, cross an eight feet gap, and a crew of ten men with two machine guns on board and one light artillery gun. The first tank were used in WW1 by the British in 1916. During the early war, the British sent 49 tanks into the battle. By the time of 1918, the British and France had produced 6,506 tanks between them, and Germany had produced only 20 tanks, Germany learn to deal with WW1 tanks very effectively, so they destroyed a lot of the tanks without getting any damage. During the Battle of Amiens 1918, 72 percent of the allied tanks were destroyed in just 4 days. Six days before the end of the WW1, the British tank corps only had 8 tanks left Kaiser Wilhelm II on 'Fakebook' Fakebook - create a fictional social profile at
U-boats were one of the many weapons used in WW1. Germany was in charge of the use of submarine warfare known as U-boats during the First World War. U-boats primary target were merchant convoys bringing supplies over from Canada, the British Empire, and the United States. The U-boats would be launched to sink any ships without warning, that were coming into any war zone areas. Many U-boat attacks were unfair due to most of the sunken ships only being to transporting passengers and had nothing to do with contributing to the war. This made the U.S. angry and caused a lot of tension between Germany and the U.S. Germans would use U-boats because it was an effective use of warfare.
In WW1 so many aircraft types. “Albatros B.II” was a reconnaissance biplane used in the First World War.(German side) Design by Ernst Heinkel. First flying in 1914, large numbers of the B.II were built and, though it was retired from front-line service in 1915 following the introduction of the armed C-type two-seaters, the B.II remained in service as a trainer until 1918. The B.II able to attain altitudes of nearly 15000 feet. The aircraft played a role in the training of countless German pilots till the closing mouths of the war
World War I was shaped by the new vehicles . A century after the start of the war, we’re looking back at the most remarkable vehicles—the planes, cars, tanks, ships, and zeppelins—it helped bring about.World War I saw the rise of the submarine and the airplane as vital weapons of war, and even now they remain keystones of military might. The airship, on the other hand, became little more than a means of capturing fantastic aerial shots at the Super Bowl.The flamethrower, which brought terror to French and British soldiers when used by the German army in the early phases of the First World War in 1914 and 1915 and which was quickly adopted by both was by no means a particularly innovative weapon.
The 1914 machine gun,usually positioned on a flat tripod, would require a gun crew of four to six operators.In theory they could fire 400-600 small calibre rounds per minute ,it was developed by Hiram.s.maxim in britain the first machine gun was important because it could shoot so many rounds,and if you came out of the trenches you would die Sutori Word cloud art created with
