World War 1 Modern Warfare

Tanks

I

Tanks were created to help stop the spread of trench warfare. Trench warafere was costly with lives of the many soldiers involved in this war. With that being said, the allies wanted a machine that can get over these trenches and not break down once they have crossed enemy lines. The first tank was unsuccessful for being to slow and getting caught in the ground.

Submarine

This boat shown is a German U-boat that changed warfare. It changed warfare because this submarine went deep bellow the surface and carried more supplies than any submarine at that time. It posed a threat to other nations due to capacity to hold more torpedoes and mines.

Gas

This new type of weapon used during this war was the most feared by a soldier. This can be let loose on trenches and kill many soldiers. This gas can kill someone without the other person having to be there. Along with that gas would make the person I'll and they would have to deal with that pain until the body can't bare no more.

Machine Gun

Machine guns were the number one killer of men during that war. This gun can shoot hundreds of rounds of ammunition a minute. This meant a non stop spray of bullets was heading your way. If men decided to peak over the trenches they would be shot. Lastly the charging method was used in this war and a lot of men parished because of that.
