I think you have confused the FIRST WORLD WAR with WW2. During the First World War, from 1914 to 1918, the great majority of the fighting took place from two sets of trenchs, one set was held by the Germans, and the other was held jointly by the British, French, Canadian, and at the latter end of the war, by the Americans. This was the first war that saw trench warfare last for years with little movement on either side. During WW2, from 1939 to 1945, the fighting was MUCH MORE MOBILE, with few situations where troops sat in trenchs for very long. The use of fast armoured cars and tanks and trucks sped up the tempo of the fighting. This was called mobile warfare, compared to the stagnant quagmire in the mud of the First World War.
