Trench warfare is a type of fighting where both sides dig deep trenches in the ground as a defence against the enemy. The World War 1 trenches could stretch many miles and made it almost impossible for one side to advance on the other. The Western Front in World War 1, located in France, was fought using trench warfare.What was the front line like in WW1?
The first trench, and the namesake for this site, was the front line. This was the trench closest to No Man's Land (the territory controlled by neither side of a battle), and the most dangerous. The front line was connected to communication trenches to move supplies, equipment, and men forward, without exposure.What were the conditions of the trenches in WW1?
World War 1 trenches were dirty, smelly and riddled with disease. For soldiers life in the trenches meant living in fear. In fear of diseases (like cholera and trench foot) and of course, the constant fear of enemy attack.
