Increase in the number of nations that could fight in the war ...
A need to kill people more effectivly in order to win the war.
Poison Gas(Mustard Gas which were dropped from planes on enemy trenches designed to make the eyes tear and itch, throat clog up, eventually die if exposed to long), Machine Gu…ns(First used by the Germans), Tanks, Trench Warfare(Generals and Commanders ordered their soldiers to attack in large waves which ended up with severe casualties on all sides do to the machine guns power with ammunition of death, also caused what was known as No Man's Land or a Stalemate), and planes.
This is a answer that's isn't fully but: In the ww1 the big invention was the tank. The WW1 is famously because of his huge deads in trench-wars. When the English had invenste…d the tank the could ride over the trenches of the Germans so the would be killed. There a speculations that if the tank wasn't invented Germany had won the war.
one of the new military weapons was the machine gun
\nthe first ever mass produced tank was developed and used near the end of WW1
The tank was introduced by the British as a way to destroy barbed wire defenses
The idea of trench warfare was not new, but was taken to its extreme. The basic firearms were still present (pistol, rifle, machine guns, and cannon) but had more advanced ver…sions, such as the 1911 Colt semi-automatic pistol, the M-1 rifle, the Browning Automatic Rifle and the Thompson submachine gun, and the Maxim water-cooled guns. New field rations replaced those used extensively in the Spanish-American War. Carrier pigeons were not new. Mounted cavalry was not used extensively, but there were still horse-drawn wagons and artillery carriages. Much of the troop movement in the war were still made by train.
Advanced battle tanks, advanced firearms, advanced submarines, and the list goes on and on!
Barbed wire, machine guns, poison gas, tanks, airplanes, and submarines changed warfare as the world knew it. War used to be based solely on number and how fast you could marc…h. Now all that mattered was who got there first. By liberally placing barbed wire, they could just sit there with machine guns, and literally mow the enemy down as the marched towards them. Poison gas was introduced at the Second Battle of the Ypres and was highly effective to the point were it was banned after World War I was finished. At first, airplanes were only used to take photographs of the war on both sides, but soon they were dropping bombs and gas, and fighting each other in the air. Submarines could take out cargo ships transporting food and supplies to enemy lines, while the contribution of the tank is a little more obvious.
Machine guns, trucks, planes, mortars, and telegrams. These are the first five that come to mind.
Notable ones were tanks and chemical warfare. 'Tanks' were named for that which they were disguised as - water tanks. Chemicals used in the First World War were gases that bli…nded, blistered, and killed (mustard and chlorine gases).
