What was trench life like during WW1?

This is a trench branch from WW1

Rat infections, diseases,infections, bombs, and SMELLS filled the life of a trench. Diaries and notebooks explained it was much worse than you could imagine.Besides the war going on around you, trench days were pretty boring. Grads and patrolling was constant, day and night. Not much sleep happened through the day or night. There was usually a truce at breakfast time via tradition. Repairing was always needed, but not much of it happened. Poison gas lingered in the air from bombs and supposedly bathrooms. Even with determination for serving a country, trench life was often loathed.
