Indy, I'm wanting to construct a small 60-Foot WWI trench (W. Front) and I'm wondering how soldiers dug their trenches, and other helpful bits of information. This includes things like what armies used what to line the walls of the trenches, and the general layout with bunkers/"rooms" in said trenches. I guess my question belongs IN the trenches. Love the show, keep up the Güt Arbeit!Posted 1 month ago by Shy Fox (ShyFox10).
i read somewhere that a journalist made a joke in 1918 and refered to the great war as the first world war, the joke being that more world wars would follow, is this true and was this the earliest example of calling it the first world war? were there any other names for the war that were used back then?Posted 2 months ago by Anonymous.
