the reserve trench were the lin eof trenchs that are behind the front lin trench. if or when the front line trench is captured, the solidiers can use the reserve trench line and the substitute front line
Communication trenches ran between safe areas and the front-line trench. They allowed troops to move safely to and from the front line...

A front line during WW1 would have been the trench furthest up and closest to the enemy trenches where the heaviest fighting took place.
To provide a barrier in the event that the front trench was overrun.
so it would slow them down you but face
A general pattern for trench routine was 4 days in the front line, then 4 days in close reserve and finally 4 at rest
Support Trenches in WW1 were trenches that support the front line. Whether it be troops, ammo, or weapons, they supported the main trench. They also were a second defense if the main trench was overrun.
It was fought on the Western frontThe Eastern front was a war of movementand Gallipoli was a form of trench warfare but predominantly a stalemate
It depends on how long the trench is. There is no set length; during World War I, a trench could be anywhere from a few yards long to over a mile. Also, there are different kinds of trenches; some were not much more than a small pile of rocks.
Yes they did, they used the Double Barreled Shotgun and they also used the M1917 Trench gun on the front line and on the trenches.
The front line of World War 2 was the eastern front. The battles at the eastern front were the largest battles in history.
A ditch used for cover from enemy fire. A series of trenches would be used as the front lines of the different armies moved forwards and back. Many people lost their lives in the trenches during the war as the only way to advance the front line was to go 'over the top' and invade the enemies trench.
Soldiers who were new to the trenches of World War I quickly learned their way around the trench system. All of the trenches were dug with a main trench against the front line and several support trenches behind that. The formulaic nature of trench construction made it fairly easy for soldiers to find their way around.
it is where soldiers are at the front of the front line for about 2 months.
There were differences in the function and importance of trenches. The first one (closest to the enemy) was also called the Front Line or the Fire Line. A 100 yards behind it you had the support trench and again some 100 yards behind, the reserve trench. And then you had the connecting trenches, who were just there so you could get from one trench to the other. There wasn't a real 'hierarchy' anmong trenches: the front line was most important for fighting, but the other two were important for their support facilities, radio and command rooms and as places for soldiers to rest from front line duties.
The Western Front!
The ridge of the trench was called the parapet in World War I.
