Rats especially, caused a huge problem for many of the soldiers in Trench Warfare. Rats snatched up food when an opportunity was given to them. For the worst part, it could even infect your meal. Rats also terrified soldiers due to their unpleasant demeanor. When I mean that, I'm trying to say that if you were left unguarded, a Rat would most likely assault you.
History Script Why is it important? This battle was a somewhat important battle for the ANZAC’s because they showed a lot of sprit and rigger in the trenches at Krithia. It showed how after the British called for ANZAC support they responded quickly and their attack and defence methods weren’t all that great but they tried hard to hold their line as well as advance and take over Turkish trenches. This battle wasn’t meant to be fought by ANZAC troops but the British and French armies couldn’t tackle this massive task alone. The ANZAC’s brought fire power, strength in numbers and support to the allied side.
Although it was a bloody war, disease was the number one cause of death due to all the unsanitary equipment being used. Not only did the cleanness of things factor in the deaths caused by disease, but so did the knowledge of the people back then. They were not familiar with bacterial transmission, so not much was done to keep things sanitary. Luckily, today we have way better technology, knowledge and medical equipment. If it wasn’t for the Civil War and all the people who put their lives on the line, the world wouldn’t be how it is
Soldiers were more prone to die with the tanks, ships, planes, and machine guns then they were to die from cannons and muskets. The civil war did have the advantage when it came to soldiers dying from infections. This is another reason they are different. Medical technology was more advanced during world war two then it was during the civil war. So the total number of deaths from infection for the civil war is going to be way higher then world war two.
This would make the soldiers more tired in the day and weak in fighting. As Things got hectic, soldiers got tired and sweaty, diseases started to circulate, Typhoid started to circulate among the soldiers and slowly started to take the life of them. A newly introduced weapon by the Turkish soldiers came heavy on the ANZACS. Poison Gas, it was deadly and the only option the ANZACS had was to cover their mouth with rags dipped in urine to distract the gas. This method was used until gas masks were invented for better protection, Also due to the muddy and wet conditions in the trenches, the soldiers experience trench foot.
Murdering someone is one possibility, such as stabbing a shooting an enemy. Witnessing death was also very hard for a soldier to deal with. Mental issues were not the only causes. Nearby explosions and gunfire may cause severe stress leading to the disorder. At first doctors thought the disease was only caused by explosions, but soon realized soldiers who were not on the front line had been affected.
There are positives and negatives to every tactic, especially trench warfare. Trench warfare’s effectiveness directly impacted the war. Because it was not extremely effective, it often tired out the soldiers and prolonged the war. Trench warfare introduced new infections and diseases, like trench foot and trench fever. It also contributed to many more soldiers falling ill due to influenza, malaria, cholera, typhoid, and diabetes.
The machine gun would fire out 600 rounds per minute. But the machinegun was the only major improvement as all the other advances in technology were flawed or didn’t have much of an impact for example, tanks. The introduction of tanks to ground warfare was supposed to be revolutionary. This wasn’t precisely the case since the tanks would have troubles when maneuvering through rough terrain and would easily break down. Heavy artillery would be a big back up since 70% of all men in war were killed by heavy artillery, although efficient at killing men, artillery was not precise enough to destroy neither trenches nor bunkers, another
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.
On the trail, accidents occurred frequently. The territory had a selection of dangerous weather like “thunderstorms, lethally large hailstones, lightning, tornadoes, and high winds”(OCTA OL). These drastic weather conditions lead to immense wear and tear to the emigrants’ wagons. A common danger that could lead to accidents was the unstability of said wagons. Pioneers would fall off the 11 foot wagons leading to serious injury with the possibility of being run over by one of it’s wheels.
Two of the most famous ones were the invention of the repeater rifle and the Minie bullet. Rifles with Minié bullets were lightning fast and and undoubtedly easier to load, but soldiers still had to pause and rechamber a shot between each firing time. This was inefficient and dangerous as it left the men reloading like sitting ducks for other soldiers to fire at. By 1863, however, there was another option, and along came the repeating rifles. These rifles were like nothing anyone had ever seen at this time.
If you did not know what trench foot is, it is one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. It pretty much melts your skin to the point where you can see the bone. Not only am I suffering from trench foot, but I have inhaled a poisonous gas, which will only get worse. I think that everyone knows that it is too late for me, but I am still trying. Perhaps they are too inexperienced.
Howard, however, failed to cut the railroad. The battle of Ezra Church was gonna be a surprise attack until confederates got word. The Battle of Ezra Church was important because they were able to take out most supply lines to Atlanta until the hood was able to stop their last attempts but repelling almost all of their attacks.They should know that the battle of Ezra church wasn 't a success, but it did help us cut out some supply lines but not all. It also took out lots of the Confederates
The attacks on the railways and waterways, as mentioned above, not only affected the German economy but also the German army. The equipment that had been produced was difficult to move from the factory to the front line and there was also limited space on the trains to move the men themselves. Whilst not entirely as a result of Allied Strategic Bombing, 80% of the German army was horse-drawn. This lack of transportation hindered the army from reaching its full capabilities thereby limiting their performance in the war and as such it seems that allied strategic bombing of the transport infrastructure was highly successful in achieving its objective of impacting and hindering other areas of the German war effort. The bombing also delayed the use of Hitler’s Vergeltungswaffe rockets.
“Gangrene is a terrible condition in which living tissue dies and decays. Gangrene can occur when blood flow to an area of the body is blocked or when certain types of bacteria invade a wound.” The procedure they performed would be to cut the pieces of dead tissue off the infected area or in serious cases, amputate the limb. The aftermath of the Civil War was gruesome. A very common ammunition was the minnie ball, which would split or smash the bone because of its large mass which weighed from 1 to 1 1/2 ounces. These bullets were mostly used because of its large impact on the soldiers and also made the rifles have better accuracy.
