1 Diseases Today I want to tell you about the diseases in World War one. Many of those diseases led to the dead of the soldiers because they had little knowledge and medicine. The conditions in the trenches were horrible. Little foot and fresh water, living in wet trenches, no medical care were the cause of those diseases: Trench foot, trench fever, gas, trench mouth, venereal diseases...Soldiers were sick, hungry and were exposure to the elements of nature. World War one was a really bloody affair.
Trench warfare What were the conditions that the Australian soldiers faced in the trenches? It was very pellucid that the trench system was very excruciating and was hard to live in. the weather wasn’t always congenial. It was very gelid and damp as the trenches were composed out of mud and other substances. Due to the damp conditions trench foot occurred, leaving the soldiers to lose a foot or even both.
In this quote on page 12 in the mud and water section it explains just how bad it was “The damp conditions encouraged rats, which fed on the corpses on soldiers and horses, while body lice were a constant irritant to every soldier. Many soldiers contracted trench fever spread by lice, or trench foot – cause by wet feet – which made them red,
There was no formal or proper hygiene while in the trenches, and medical care was less than desirable. Most of the time the cure was worse than the illness. Diseases like Cholera, Typhus, and Disentary thrived because of animals such as rats and mice. While poor sewage and terrible waste disposal along with stagnant water, ruined food, and uncovered decaying bodies laid host to numerous diseases. While the Western front laid way for diseases and sickness the terrority between enemy lines known as “no man’s land” was a literal nightmare.
Lice was a very common problem that would terrorize every soldier that would spend time in the trenches. Rats were described as being the size of cats that had invaded the trenches due to its wet and sloppy muddy conditions. Trench foot was the most dreaded
While the railway lines were being built the soldiers were in desperate need of more supplies and artilleries. This slowed the rate of advance of the soldiers in battlefield. The railways faced several major challenges. Just as the demand for transport increased, lots of of fit, strong, healthy men volunteered for military service. Increasingly, the gap was filled by women The british planned a more mobile war and had decided to rely primarily on motor transport.
Meat tended to be wormy and bread hard. Even so, his troops were constantly fighting hunger, cold and disease. Such conditions always negatively affect an army 's morale. And in the case of the
Unfortunately, the machine gun early on, required teams of men to use it which made the soldiers operating them more exposed to enemy gunfire because they were responsible for reloading and making sure the gun did not malfunction. The machine gun was a significant player in trench warfare and the shift towards it, in that it made defending trenches from enemy soldiers very easy for the defending troops because of the high fire rate and wide range of fire the machine gun had. The invention of the machine gun was a factor for the break of conventional warfare in World War I and for the emergence of trench warfare. The usual strategy that was used in prior wars was no good in World War I. Soldiers could no longer run at the enemy head on and attack them because the machine gun was too quick to out maneuver or ambush.
Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships.
This quote represents the emotional strain of soldiers during the Vietnam War. Soldiers were asked to do horrific things that were against their nature and slowly it broke them. The Vietnam War is infamous for the slow moving terrain and the PTSD it caused
(Gerund, provides evidence on how hard it was -ing) “The look in his eyes as they stared into mine, has never left mine” (Wiesel, 119) Going to a concentration camp being poor can truly be challenging. Beneath the poor man he was telling them information because being down in the dirt traveled on many times people don’t look at him with respect. (Prepositional phrase) But, of course, the people didn 't listen because he was poor. Of the stressfulness and miserable images they had in their head they were way too scared to only image what was next. (Infinitive, starts the sentence “of”) He closed his eyes as though to escape time” (Wiesel, 17).
In “The Rear Guard” the soldiers in the trench are depicted as “muttering creatures” showing the intense fear and poor conditions they they are suffering. The conditions are shown to be terrible, as it says “Tins, boxes, bottles, shapes too vague to know, A mirror smashed, the mattress from a bed” This shows that the soldiers have let the trench become untidy, possibly because of an attack by the enemy or a mutiny, either way the soldiers rather face the hellish conditions that have been created in the trench than face the war above; not even to remove the body of a fallen
RATS, yes even in the man-made trenches of which to protect the soldiers from the enemy also became a home to these disgusting, cat sized, evil, and naked faced rats, who fed off of the dead and or fallen troops of the war and they soldier 's bread making them be more cautious on where they put their bread because of the hideous rats. As if rats weren 't enough excluding the war, the storm-troops came in contact with harsh weapon machinery, it being so bad that if you were hit you 'd fly back and an arm shot off and leaving the victim hanging on barbed wire entanglement, and these were just some of the horrible things that happened. In conclusion, the rats and new machinery just caused more problem for the soldiers during the war, making it even more
