What are the soldiers in this photograph doing?



According to these journal entries, what hardships did soldiers face at the battlefront.

Many men were killed or wounded. They were in hot barrages every morning and evening. They were getting sick (fever and dysentery). They had dead horses, irregular meals, bad water, insufficient coverings, muscle tensions, shell shock, lice. They had to lay on the ground.


During WWI, how did the image of war presented in posters differ from soldiers' actual experiences?

It differed because the image in the poster probably was only a few things that they went through because they most likely went through way more hardships than that. In the article it only listed a few diseases that they experienced but they could of went through more because they laid on the ground so they could have gotten really sick.


What do you think people today can learn from the long-term results of the treaty of versailles?

When the nations the big 4 and the leaders were apart of were defeated, they gathered in the hall of mirrors in the palace of Versailles and signed the peace treaty hoping it would create stability. Instead it caused anger in them.

The treaty didn't benefit Germany at all. It barred them, it required them to return the region of Alsace-Lorraine to France, and it required them to pay reparations (war damages) that they had to pay $33 million to the allies. It humiliated Germany and forced them to take responsibly for starting the war when the Europeans were the ones provoking the diplomatic crises'. Germany couldn't pay that huge financial reparation because their colonial possessions in the pacific (that could of helped them pay) were taken away.

Last, the Russians fought beside the allies in the war and had the most casualties than any other nation. But the allies excluded them from the peace conference. So even though the peace treaty was targeting Germany, Russia lost more territory than they did. That's what people can learn today from results of the treaty of Versailles.


In what ways was WWI different from earlier wars in which the United States had been involved?

When the U.S. fought in war they used many new weapons. They used the convoy system that consisted of cruisers, defensive boundaries, destroyers, merchant ships, and U-boats. They used airplanes and tanks, machine guns, pistols, and others. Different people, countries, and allies fought in wars that the U.S. fought in. Germany fought, France, Europe, and the doughboys. Some of the wars took place in Germany and France and Europe. And many people died. They had many causalities but the United States had the fewest. Thats what different between wars that the U.S. fought in the ones they didn't.
