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.
