The trenches of World War I were terrifying. It was possible to die from sniper fire, diseases, and an overall lack of hygiene. It would have been an incredibly difficult living situation, and many men broke under the stress.

Fighting in the trenches during World War I would have been both terrifying and brutal. Death could come for a soldier in many different ways, and it was unsanitary, loud, and caused a lot of men to suffer from PTSD.

They provided protection from enemy fire as well as shelter and concealment from enemy observation.

at first they slept in lorries and later they started to sleep in the cold dirty floors of the trenches.

Reserve trenches were used as supplies for the trenches out the front. In world war one, they had come up with a technique of hiding in trenches before they fight. To do this properly, they had made them zig-zags. The trenches on the front line were where the soldiers would fight from. Reserve trenches were used in case these people had anything happen to them and they needed to use more trenches and more men. Throughout the war, the conditions of the front line trenches became worse as the communication and reserve trenches improved. I hope that helped :)

Health and diseases in the trenches during World War I was a major concern. Men killed in battle were often buried close to the surface and would reappear in time. Rat infestations occurred, leading to the rats feeding on live soldiers as they slept. Lice and influenza were major problems for those living in the trenches.

The trenches allowed men to be protected while fighting in the war. Being out of sight from the opposing country significantly increased their chances of surviving. The trenches were also designed focusing on air shooting. This meant they created a design that would also protect them from a plane shooting at them. Without the trenches all of the men would have been killed, and they wouldn't have been given a chance to fight. so yes. the trenches were VERY significant in the war.

They had to get there before the other side did, so that they could get an advance into making their trench, so before the other side come, they will be ready will their trenches!

The trenches were used for shelter and to move men/supplies behind the lines. They also tried to out flank the opposing troops.

Because of all the wet mud. The soldiers got trenchfoot because the trenches were covered in mud. The soldiers had to stand in the mud for days on end! The mud is what caused it!

Living in mud (flooded trenches) for thirty days and more at a time; they were probably the most miserable fighting men that ever experienced war.

They were brought by trains. But when armies invaded, they destroyed train tracks to make it harder for that country to supply its military.

No, some remained at home as they were too young. Even if they did go to war, some of the men remained at camp and then switched shifts with the men who were actually in the trenches fighting.

Trenches in the Pacific Theater of the war were absolutely vital to save lives. They dug them on every island they fought upon. Trenches in Africa, Italy and during the Normandy Invasion, Battle of the Bulge were critical too. The poor guys in the Battle of the Bulge and in the Ardenne Forest had to literally make snow trenches and even sleep in them. Some of the soldiers even used fallen vehicles for trenches and safe protection. Without trenches hundreds of thousands of men would have died, even if some did die in the trenches, especially when they stood up.

ALOT! But most of them died from blood loss,caused by wounds, being shot or from a gas attack.

When news of the war's end reached the trenches, men on both sides were dumbfounded. They were silent, and then they began to laugh and cry. Then they cheered.

Yes. There were flies and many other insects, carrying disease. It gave the men many diseases, which caused death if shooting hadn't.

Life in the trenches in World War I was miserable, dangerous, and boring.Life in the trenches was bad, but it was better than life outside of the trenches. Of the course of the war, both sides lost hundreds of thousands of men in gain control of the others' trench. Given that the area between the trenches was covered in barbed wire, mines, machine guns, and snipers, it is little wonder that so many died. As bad as life in the trenches could be, it was to be much more preferred to almost certain death in No Man's Land.
