What were the living conditions in the trenches ?
The trenches are organized in three successive lines. The most deadly is the first one. Grenades launching rifle, flying torpedos, even medieval crossbows... also, giant slingshots used by british soldiers as well as their plum pudding. Human ingeniosity knows no bounds when it comes to killing. Between two artillery shellings, soldiers are waiting. They sleep, they play cards, they write letters and fight the boredom by making objects with copper sockets. The smell in the trenches is indescribable. Rats, lice and scabies are the wounds in all the trenches.
