Storyboard Text

  • Mounted machine guns drastically reduced the effectiveness of infantry pushes.
  • The technology during World War One favored a static defense.
  • Tanks were still in their infancy, meaning there was no safe way to advance.
  • When soldiers were supposed to defend an area, they dug trenches for cover.
  • Sometimes they were prepared for making trenches, and they made tunnels with reinforced walls.
  • Other times they were not, and they simply dug holes in the ground.
  • As time went on, the trenches became larger, longer, and stronger. This made assaulting them nearly impossible.
