I have a question, for the Out of the trenhces. We see almost daily that there are casualties for both sides. How did the germans withstand the loss of all these men? Sure, there were going to be a problem when the USA soldiers arrive, but until now (february 1918) they could defend relativly easy the western front , and even attack on the east front(before the russia fell in to civil war). Was the german army so overpopulated to survive in such preasure? The british and the french had only the western front to attack and they had huge difficulties. The troops from other fronts, (british mostly), I dont believe that could make any great diference if they were relocated on the west front . Keep on the good job!Posted 1 year ago by Ioannis Balis.
