Transcript of At Sea
"The British army used tanks for the very first time during the Battle of Somme in September 1916. They were unreliable and had a top road speed of just 5 kph. In 1918, tanks became more reliable and more useful. The Germans were not not very impressed by tanks and only built sixteen A7Vs. This mobile fortress had a crew of up to eighteen men and five machine guns. It was too awakward to be effective. The Renault FT-17 light tank had a two man crew and was armed with a machine gun or cannon. This tanks was used a lot by Americans."
Even over sea, the Allies and Central Power fought and the reason the US joined is because the germans torpedoed the
Cool Inventions that Collected Data/Info. AND Communications
They were tons of cool inventions that was used to collect data and information about their enemy secretly.
Up, Up, and Away!
The war was even fought in the high sky with airplanes, zeppelin/airships, and aircraft.
Although some guns were fired from trenches, armies placed most of their artillery farther to the rear. Artillery brigades used guns called howitzers in great numbers. these fired a heavy shell high up into the air so that it crashed straight down into an enemy trench.
The World War's
Weapons and New Technology
*Most words type here are rephrased from the book, going to War in World War 1 by Adrian Gilbert.*
The Artificial Trees provided a good place to data and information from their enemy. The soldiers would have made them out of tree stumps, steel cylinders covered with wire mesh and canvas. The soldiers would build these at night and next to a real tree stump. (They would removed the real stump and install the fake one in its place)
"The destroyer was a light and swift battleship capable of speed up to 34 mph. A destroyer's main task was to attack larger warships with its torpedoes. It also used depth charges against submarines. "
The submarines are armed with a gun and torpedoes. A submarine called the German U-boat sank more than 2,500 Allied vessels. The u-boats were eventually defeated by the Allies, who antisubmarine warfare weapons such as depth charges and shepherded merchant ships into fleets guarded by destroyers.
The Lusitania was a British ship that was fast and got sank by a German submarine that killed over 1,200 Americans and immigrants (which angered the American). It's last vogue was from US to England to bring the British's supplies before running out on a foggy day.
The Gas Masks
In World War 1, a new invention was invented called the Grenade. The Grenade was contained with a dangerous to health gas, called Mustard Gas and so the, Gas Mask was invented.
Machine Guns such as the British Vickers or the German Maxim were one of the deadliest on the Western Front. They can fired up to 400-500 bullets per minute!
Gas Masks was invented to protect from the grenade AKA Mustard Gas.
Periscope was used to protect you from enemies' bullets when stuck up your head from the trenches.
Battle of Somme
2 main ways of the soldiers/troops and the commander ways of communication was a field telephone and sent letters on animals such as pigeons and dogs.
The telephones wires were often cut during a battle or attack.
The Artificial Tree
The SE5A was the British's best fighter of the war. It was capable of taking any German aircraft, down. The SE5a was armed with 2 machine guns and had a top speed of 202 kph.
The SPAD fighter was common to both the French and the US pilots. The SPAD XIII was armed with 2 machine guns and a top speed of 210 kph.
Gotha bombers were used in raids on London and Paris. They were armed with 1,100 lb of bombs although their slow maximum speed of 88 mph made them easy target to Allied aircraft.
Both Allied and Germany used aircraft. Germany common aircraft was the Zeppelins, created by Count Zeppelins. These Zeppelins used hydrogen gas to keep them in the air. Although they weren't very fast, they could travel up to 620 miles. They were used to bombed cities and for the reconnaissance duties. Zeppelins flew higher then aircraft so they were safe until 1917, when aircraft were able to fly higher then Zeppelin and shoot them down.
