world war 1 was very slow and defensive with troops advancing and digging in constantly. the army had not fully grasped how to use artillery effectively and tanks were only just being introduced. world war 2 was fast moving and more open with the Germans utilizing armour tactics by developing "BLITZ…KRIEG" also the introduction of airborne infantry meant hard spots in defenses could be bypassed and attacked from the rear. air tactics meant stationary defensive positions were easy targets. but tactics depended on the terrain in north Africa the area was wide open and flat ideal for tanks but for example the battle for Caen or villers bocage were in built up areas where tanks were venerable.

Tournaments were the sporting practice of martial skill, and in later medieval periods, heavily regulated in terms of equipment used and material. Early tournaments were much less regulated, spreading over a large area of land, often with bands of knights working together in teams to ambush and c…apture opponents, for the honour of defeating them, and the large profits to be made by such capture. by the later 14th and 15th C the field of tournament had become restricted to a single field, or "list", and sporting elements such as the joust were developed, with additions such as the tilting barrier, a fence between the riders to prevent the two horses colliding, the use of specially-made lance heads to minimise injury, and the baton, a wooden or whalebone sword to minimise injury. Later on, jousting armour became incredibly heavy and thick to protect blows only coming from the one side, for maximum protection at the expense of mobilty - utterly impractical for real combat. Warfare, in contrast, was simple, no holds-barred conflict not between individuals, but between nation states, with the intention to cause injury, death or harm which the tournament avoided. (MORE)
