Each day in the trench is worse than the last. All we do is pray that we get through the week to get a break from this madness. It starts at daybreak when we get our orders. Sometimes the enemy will try to catch us off guard and attack us so we have to be ready. There is never nothing to do and there is always the constant fear of an attack, especially with artillery or gas. The only brief moments of sanity are on the rare occasions we can read letters from loved ones although this seems to be happening less and less…

The trench system on the Western Front was much more complex than one might think. There were many features each of which had its on purpose. Duckboards stopped the ground from getting too muddy and prevented trenchfoot. Bunkers existed so that men could shield themselves from falling shells. In addition, the firing step allowed men to fire across no man’s land at enemy soldiers.

Source a was written by the historian stephane mahe in 1999
Source A was written by the historian Stephane Mahe in 1999.

The main reason for the First World War was the aggression of the German Kaiser. He was determined to bring Europe to war and stopped at nothing until the conflict arose. The alliance system also had an impact as the continent was split into two armed camps. Furthermore the naval arms race between Britain and Germany had a major impact in bringing those two countries into competition with each other and ultimately war.
