They were used for the soldiers to hide in to protect themselves from the enemy, so that they didnt get killed. The conditions were pretty dirty and horrible though
Barbed wire was used to protect the trenches.
Not sure which 'first' used trenches. But the Australian and New Zealand soliders commonly used trenches during the Gallipoli campaign.
Trenches were used in both WWI and WWII.
During WWI, duck boards were used as flooring at the bottom of the trenches. Trenches often were flooded with water and mud, and these wood planks provided soldiers a way to walk in these 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 :)
No. Trenches were used in wars as far back as history is recorded. Trenches were used in the Revolutionary war in the US. Some of these trenches can still be seen at the scene of some battlefields such as Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and Yorktown Virginia.
They used shovels and picks to dig out the trenches.
Trenches were a trademark of the first World War. They were extensive and elaborate. They were not used in World War II. Are you trying to find out the length of ALL the trenches together?
yes, well not exactly trenches aren't something you use. Trenches are hiding places for soldiers

A reason I can think of in which soldiers used trenches for is to take cover from machine gunfire. Also, the correct title is why trenches ARE important. Not is.
Military trenches were large dugout areas that were utilized on both sides of the military. Sometimes the trenches went on for hundreds of miles. The trenches were used for defense and cover, and were protected by barbed wire to ward off attacks. The trenches were also used to run communications, food, and supplies to the soldiers.
It used to store food
for look the position is used the photography and some time bombs
Trenches were long, narrow holes in the ground used to shelter soldiers in between the battles. These trenches were full of lice, rats and mud.
Trench warfare used several different types of trenches. Firing trenches were used by soldiers to protect themselves while firing their weapons at their enemy. Cover trenches were often built next to the firing trenches as a second line of defense in case the enemy captured the firing trench. Support trenches were used as rest areas for off-duty troops, who sometimes lived in dugouts excavated in the sides of the trench. A network of reserve and communications trenches was used to bring supplies and fresh troops to the front.
The communication trenches were actually used to deliver messages between trenches. A lot of times a "communications trench" wasn't even a trench and the messengers had to run across open ground.
Both fighting sides of WWI (World War One) <><><><> Actually, trenches have been used in warfare for thousands of years.
Trenches used in WW1
A reserve tranch was one of three main trenches, all connected up by communication trenches. The reserve trenches were at the back and, from the name, were used as reserves. The next trenches were support trenches, to support the fighting. Then you had the Front trenches, right next to No Man's Land. Hope this helped :D
They were used for blasting people out of trenches.
Both sides of the war, the Allies and the Central Powers, on the borders of Belgium, France, Germany and Switzerland
