It was a real quagmire, where two rival sides in the conflict have spent years detained without being able to advance into enemy territory.
Started in 1914 because of economic and geopolitical disputes, World War opposed the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey) against the Allies (France, Britain, Russia and the United States). It lasted until 1918, ending with the victory of the Allies, after the death of over 20 million people! On the Western Front, the trenches became the center of military operations. Because of them, World War lived years of stalemate because neither side was strong enough to overcome the defense lines dug by the enemy. "For over two years both sides in combat moved less than 15 kilometers in both these direction," says the American historian John Guilmartin Jr. of the University of Ohio. The battlefields where were the trenches were a constant quagmire and an extremely dangerous place. Studies indicate that almost 35% of all casualties suffered on the Western Front were killed or wounded when soldiers were in a trench.
The term trench designates generically any type of linear excavation into the soil. Ditches were dug in the ground, about two meters deep and several kilometers long. There, millions of soldiers were subject to hunger to cold and constant fear of death by bombing, grenades, gunfire and disease.
In military engineering, a type of campaign fortification is considered. It is in a shelter prepared by excavation work to enable shooting the protection and movement of troops. They are dug in the open and subsequently covered, or are opened in mining jobs. The trenches in WW1, were dug into veritable quagmires, and after opening the gap usually 2 meters deep and about 1.80 m wide, front and rear, were placed wide rows of sandbags, with almost 1 m high, which increased the protection. There was a shooting step, about 0.5 m above the ground. It was used by sentries on watch and the time to shoot at the enemy.
This is a 1/35 Master Box plastic kit, with 5 figures of the British Infantry and a section of a trench.
