Trench Warfare
  • The Home Front during World War One refers to life in Britain during the war because of the women that worked there doing bullets and more material to help the army with their supplies.
  • The whole nation was under the jurisdiction of DORA  that was used for social control in Britain it means that any king can force civilian population to do something.
  • The demand for war munitions meant that factories worked all day to ensure that soldiers were well supplied with ammunition. This made accidents of producing munitions and there were factory accident s like at Silverton in the East End of London it exploded and 69 people were killed and over 400 injured.
  •  In the trench warfare there were daily deaths. Death happened even when there were no attacks. These deaths were caused by sniper shots, rat infestations, infections and lice.
  • There was a trench cycle. A battalion was expected to happen in the frontline, then a stint was spent in support, after in reserve lines and then a period of rest. This cycle was changed sometimes because of the necessities of the moment.
  • NCOs assigned men different daily chores, like refilling sandbags or draining the trenches. After heavy rains, trenches accumulated muddy water. This made trench life even more difficult, as the walls of it collapsed. They had pumping equipment and men were preserved to repair and improve trenches.

  • Men did a lot more of work in trenches. They were sent to collect rations and to provide sentry duty. They were also sent to "no man's land" to repare or add barbed wire. Enemy patrols would meet in no man's land were they couldn't use their guns as they would inevitably attract a machine gun, they had to fight hand to hand.
The war began and Germany advanced through Belgium and France, trench warfare soon set in.
