On the Western Front the two sides were fairly evenly matched. The war became a 'war of attrition'. It was very much a conflict of numbers and of the industrial resources of the two sides. Obviously, this tended to favour the Entente as the war dragged on. Worst of all, perhaps, the machine-gun turned almost every battle into a massacre. The generals on both sides were incompetent and of the lowest calibre that one can imagine. It wasn't till 1918 that the tank was used intelligently.
During World War I, casualties were high on the Western Front (as well as on the various other fronts) due to the superiority of defensive tactics and technology. Defenders were well-equipped to counter anything thrown at them by attackers; however, the prevailing military wisdom of the times favored offensive operations. Hence, time and time again, attacks were made against formidable positions, thereby causing high casualties.

Yes. The major part of fighting on the Western Front during World War 1 took place on French soil. Since France contributed more soldiers than the British, Belgians, or Americans on that front, they suffered a high casualty rate.
There was no turning point because the Germans inflicted high casualties on the Russians who most of the time had 1 rifle between 4 people so then they ran into machine fire. They did this until they pulled out of the war in 1917
