Introduction

Immense population, technical weapon advanced machines, billions of expenditure, expanded territory, pride of conquering, but also piles after piles of bloody corps. Wars had brought forth the world today. None of the battle is worthless, it existed everywhere. Distributing from small ones such as fights between me and my brother, to those involve thousands even millions of corpse. World War I had been, through out history, one of the largest war existed on the planet. A single assassination seems tiny, but not one is killed, millions and millions are buried with the deceased. The menace wasn't so much from the little assassination. However, it kindled the origin deep within the German's mind, the Schlieffen plan. The plan implicated most of Europe because of the alliance system which made it deadly. The advanced machine and weapon did honorable job in land, air, and sea, but it also became one of the basis for the cruelty in the war. These two substantial reasons made the war so destructive and durable. If the war involved only two country, the duration and destruction would dwindle. Jealousy is one sense that a human must-have. Not only does it exist in human being but also in an "artificial" war. ...read more.

Serbia, being menaced, asked for help from its long time comrade Russia. From this point, across Europe, major countries mobilized as well. Germany, Austria, Ottoman, British, France, Serbia, and Russia, all mobilized into war condition. The war began plotting in major fields. The western front took role for most death and destruction in WWI. When you think of west it is cowboys and horses, same here, the land is wild and wide. Germans and British took longest term in this field of hell. Trenches are one of the most important architecture invented to fight against opponents. It is used as both defensive and offensive. Soldiers dug hundreds of trenches and stretched it from side to side. The trenches are made up of 3 defensive lines, the front, the back, and the back, making it triple hard to break through. Between lies the noman's land, it is so called because no men is ever going towards that area. The area is right between the trenches which make it the place to be attacked by both sides. The deadliest inventions is not only the trenches. Machine guns are set in points and it is scattered around the perimeter.

Conclusion

But when the sky became crowded, it is time to clear the road. Soldiers started to carry rifles and hand guns to shot down the wing, impeding further flight. The planes begin to evolve from carry-on rifles to built-in machine guns, but even bigger. In about middle of the 4 year war, Zepplin was invented for larger mass, and a greater capacity. It is held responsible for most of the high-alt bombing. With ease, the Zepplins reach the height way far than normal planes, making it almost impossible to be shot down. The air made a drastic change in the war. In 1917, the war was declining. Tired of the war games, Russia decides to leave the war that struck for 3 years sum. One telegram made a difference. The Zimmerman Telegram forced the Americans to face the challenge that had been on the table for quite a while. The United States decided to enter the war. This created a great turning point for the war. By this time German is racing to defeat or at least hold off all other countries. They know the Americans are a big threat to their success because of the armies and it's technology. Last the allies won the big game. Germans are forced to sign the treaty of Versaille.
