Therefore, the new sophistications of both science and technology did in fact influence the outcome of the Great War. To begin, the advancements of modern warfare during the Great War were largely responsible for the unanticipated number of casualties. Furthermore, improvements in poisonous gases, machine guns and trench warfare, led to a higher rate of casualties. “For instance, 40% of casualties were attributed to poisonous gas, 200, 000 soldiers were killed in the trenches, and in just four years, 22 models of machine guns were invented, produced, and used throughout battles.”
This was a major contribution to the defeat of the Aztecs.

In Natalie Z. Davis' reconstruction of the famous case of identity theft in sixteenth-century France, following the eight-year absence Martin Guerre, for three years, Arnaud is accepted by family and friends as the authentic Martin Guerre, that is, until his dispute with his uncle and father in law Pierre Guerre over the family inheritance, essentially questioning their Basque customs. Consequently, Pierre Guerre accuses Arnaud of being an impostor, ultimately leading to a second trial in which the court condemns Arnaud to death upon the arrival of the real Martin Guerre. Concluding the case, the court declared Bertrande (Martin’s wife) and the Guerre family victims in the trial. Yet, unlike the participants of the case, Davis does not conform to the idea of Bertrande as a mere victim in the case, but rather, an accomplice motivated by love, social standing, and religion. In framing her book on The Return of Martin Guerre, Davis not only provides a chronological account of events, but also a psychological analysis and interpretation of this isolated case as a representation of the lives of the French peasantry.
