World War 1
During this war they made a gas mask, the gas mask helped with not inhaling in the posion. They made all shapes and sizes of the gas masks. they would put it on there animals and themselves.
Posions Gas was cazy popular for the French. They made all kinds of chemicals with it, there were Mustard gas,cyanide, carbon monoxide and cyanogens chloride. Those are all chemicals that do not do well with our bodys most importanly our air.
This weapon was very serious for every there were ways of it being painful an it left damages. Mustard gas blistered the skin causing extreme pain. It was also capable of soaking through material onto skin beneath a uniform. A more severe version of it was Lewisite which had the same effect on skin but also caused respiratory problems and pneumonia. Unable to gain oxygen, the body quickly shuts down.“Death is rapid, sure and relatively painless.” (Brian Ford)
Trench Warfare & No Man's Land
Trench Warfare & No mans Land
The defintion of Trench Warfare is a type of combat in which opposing troops fight from trenches facing each other.
The defintion of No mans land is disputed ground, as between the front lines or trenches of two opposing armies.
Impact on Soldiers Trench Warfare
The impact of trench warfare on soldiers and their families was massive; it caused lots of deaths and injuries on the battlefields and also to the soldier's health. Trench warfare was used as a protection tactic to stop soldiers getting killed, it sure did that, but many soldiers died in the trenches as well because the trenches are as good as a death note. The trenches worked well by protecting soldiers from small artillery and enemy fire, but once a grenade or mustard gas landed in them the soldiers had nowhere to go. Information at >>
Impact on No Man's Land
The stretch of land between the front line trenches was dangerous. No Man's Land contained miles of barbed wire, hundreds of corpses, and land mines. Sometimes as narrow as 15 yards or as wide as several hundred yards, No Man's Land was heavily guarded by machine gun and sniper fire. Soldiers were forced to cross No Man's Land to advance or scout for enemy positions. Official truces were often necessary to retreaive the wounded or bury the dead. This also was a very deadly time in World War One. Information at >>
