Roots of War21BellworkJudging by the photo what do you think life in the trenches was like? What might have been some of the hardships of fighting out of trenches. Why would they be beneficial?

BellworkAs the leader of Austria-Hungary you have a major decision to make. The heir to your throne has been assassinated by a Serbian terrorist group. What do you do next? Do you blame the Serbian government and declare war? Do you try to find more members of the black hand? Or since you caught the assassin do you drop it and move on. Think about how this decision could affect all of Europe.

John Nash, Over the Top (1918) 46

47No Mans LandBritish poet Wilfred Owens, later killed in action during the war, wrote in a couple of letters:"No Man's Land is pocket marked like the body of foulest disease and its odor is the breath of cancer...No Man's Land under snow is like the face of the moon, chaotic, crater-ridden, uninhabitable, awful, the abode of madness." "Hideous landscapes, vile noises....everything unnatural, broken, blastered; the distortion of the dead, whose unburiable bodies sit outside the dug-outs all day, all night, the most execrable sights on earth.

What do these quotes tell you about life in the trenches? How would this affected you, if you were a soldier?
