World War I : The Stalemate (1914-1918) By: Rania Mohiuddin

(Germany)
-Using
tanks
(British)
-Using
camouflage
(Both)
-Using
airplanes
(Both)
-Improving
accuracy of artillery


However, the poison gas and tank ideas did not work, and could not break the stalemate.


How did it end?
But why was there stalemate in World War I?
A stalemate is a situation where two sides are equally matched.
Before World War I, in war, the attacking (offensive) side always had the advantage with their cavalry and weapons. However, during World War I, as soldiers camped in trenches, the advantage was with the defending side because trenches were easy to
defend
. In fact, trenches were mainly dug for this reason.After the
artillery
bombardment, soldiers would race to get their
machine guns
, which had the capacity to kill hundreds of soldiers.
The British army led by Sir Douglas Haig, destroyed the Hindenburg Line, capturing 190,000 enemy troops and 2800 guns. These great victories are known as the
"Hundred Days"

broke through
Britain and almost reached Paris. However, they stretched too far, and were unsuccessful.
