The war is going to be easy. We are going to wipe France out in no time.
Yeah! We have nothing to worry about! This is going to be glorious!

Ha! The Germans thought that overwhelming us with men was going to work!
Why isn't this working! We are supposed to be destroying them!
Were losing to the French! We need to find a new strategy or else we will lose all of our men.
I'm low on ammunition. Do you guys have any to spare? I'm out.
We need to remain in this trench until further notice. We can't afford to keep losing so many men like this.
My feet are really cold in these damp trenches.
Man, I am so tired of all this death that keeps happening around me! We barely have enough men to keep fighting the war.
Yeah, I lost my best friend Tim to trench foot a couple days ago.

We should do something about this.

General, I am sorry to inform you that I will no longer fight in this ruthless war. We only have a couple hundred men left and many are dieing to disease in these trenches. I want to survive so I can see my family.
Please make a treaty to stop this terrible war! I want to go home!
I really regret saying that this war was going to be glorious and easy. It has been depressive and atrocious.
