problem of the Germans was that they had no food. When they managed to reach the enemies trench they didn´t fight very much, but started collecting food from the british or french supplies. what was even more astounding is that they got called back in their own trench, when the enemies started moving in from nort or south, because they couldn´t attack the whole enemies side, because the whole front was one fu***n trench

WWI, the most avoidable yet devastating and impactful war in human history. What a fucking shame.

The field officers actually had the highest rate of death. Part of the reason the British nobility collapsed after ww1 was because most of the male heirs died.

God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget

WW1 junior officers had ridiculously high casualty rates. I hate when people try to act like it was just officers sending enlisted to go die.

Sadly, 10,000 casualties in 5 hours is not anywhere near as bad as it got. On the first day of the battle of the Somme, there were 75,000 casualties in the roughly 15 hours of fighting. That comes out to 5,000 an hour, or around 1.4 casualties a second.

​

The farthest advance of the day was 4 km behind the german lines. Most units made it between 500 m and 1 km. By the following day, most of those units no longer existed having been annihilated by machine guns and artillery. Out of 1000 man battalions that made the charge, they were lucky to come back with more than 200. Some had fewer than 30 left at the end of the day.

Didn’t officers have a higher death percentage than regular men though?

Officers actually had a higher death rate in WW1 than your average soldier, as they often had to lead the charge over the top.

I think you mean generals. Most of the officers were first to lead the charge.

Hey. On a serious note. No matter what side they were on. Everyone was a victim of war. German, British, french, American, russian. It doesn’t matter. Nobody wanted to be there. Do do those things. To die

Everyone suffers. Everyone has friends, Everyone has family.
