5. Bleeding to death after being shot multiple times with a machine gun. 4. Having a leg amputated because of a mine, then dying from the resulting infection. 3. Starvation after being trapped behind enemy lines or in a POW camp. 2. Dying of dysentery, Bubonic Plague, or the flu; but not before spreading it to hundreds of other in the trenches with you. 1. Slowly dying of mustard gas. Here's a quote to further elucidate: "The skin of victims of mustard gas blistered, the eyes became very sore and they began to vomit. Mustard gas caused internal and external bleeding and attacked the bronchial tubes, stripping off the mucous membrane. This was extremely painful and most soldiers had to be strapped to their beds. It usually took a person four or five weeks to die of mustard gas poisoning. One nurse, Vera Brittain, wrote: 'I wish those people who talk about going on with this war whatever it costs could see the soldiers suffering from mustard gas poisoning. Great mustard-coloured blisters, blind eyes, all sticky and stuck together, always fighting for breath, with voices a mere whisper, saying that their throats are closing and they know they will choke.'"
