Trench warfare was the most pointless tactic ever, rediculous. Shell in the morning, start the machine guns, go over the top, die, and repeat.

so sad man. this war started for no reason. Fuck Russia Fuck Germany. America ended this war, god bless america
I thought it was Serbian Nationalist..
Barry McCockiner (1 month ago)
this war started for no reason basically. it started because countries like Russia & Germany wanted to test out their new toys from the industrial revolution. this was the first war with tanks, air planes, automatic guns, and artillery. the first modern war. It was Russia & Germany's fault for escalating some civil war that started from the assignation of some asshole arche duke. 11 million people died because of this. America ended this war, if it wasnt for them, the situation would have turned out a lot differently. & then Germans had to start a new world war a couple 20 years later cuz they where a bunch of salty bitches. america had to liberate Europe twice. and now currently our European "allies" in NATO treat Americans like garbage trying to scam us and call us dumb fat idiots behind our back.

kairez šinjgi (1 month ago)
Barry McCockiner well sorry to hear that but i just wanted to say that he didnt mention how Serbia held the front despite being completely outnumbered. And why do you say western European countries are calling you dumb fat idiots? It's America's fault. They don't want to be forced in alliance with someone. I don't like the West at all. I know that many countries want to join NATO because they hate a few countries from the East (Russia, China, Iran etc...) but with America on the top it seems like it just doesn't work out well. Ofc, USA and rest of NATO are in fine relations but the problem is that there are some countries which have great relations with Russia such as Greece and if forced, they won't attack it. Noone likes being forced.

Sooo Austria began WW1 and WW2
69Numbat (27 days ago)
Mathnew, no Austria-Hungary did not declare war on Bosnia. For some strange reason, Austria-Hungary was given Bosnia-Herzegovina to administer as a result of a war between Russia and the Ottoman Empire in 1878. Legally, it was still part of the Ottoman Empire; however, in reality, it was run by Austria-Hungary. In 1908, Austria-Hungary annexed Bosnia-Hungary, which made it legally part of Austria-Hungary. It caused a big stink at the time. You can look up the "Bosnian Crisis" on Wikipedia. There is also a YouTube clip, "Fall of Eagles E09", that has a fictionalized version of it.
Mathnew (27 days ago)
69Numbat Lol you are right...ups I always thought its in Serbia, but Austria didnt declare war to Bosnien didnt they ? It was Serbia against Austria
69Numbat (30 days ago)
Mathnew, Sarajevo is in Bosnia-Herzegovina, not Serbia.
Mathnew (1 month ago)
Barry McCockiner meh, I understand what ya tryin to say but its a fact that Austria began WW1 because their Crownprince Franz Ferdinand got shot in Serejeow (Serbia) and they decleared war with them and THEN other countries joined

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place, and in the sky, The larks, still bravely singing, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead; short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high! If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
We watched this in class even though we're only in 5th grade.

no one talks about romania. we had such a powerless and small army yet we entered war in 1916 to get our territories back. Transylvania especially, but our capital was attacked by bulgarians and germans and transylvania was attacked by austro-hungarians, so we had to stop the austro hunagarian army, and also protect our capital which we couldnt do because we got there too late. after all we got our territories back in 1918, but its sad that no one talks about our history. such brave people who didnt have much power or many people but still fought. we never wanted any fights, we just wanted peace and independence, we never attacked anyone we just wanted OUR territories back. our history is so sad and underrated. truly wish it was more appreciated, sadly the country has gone to shit lately and its because of the communism that lasted until 1989. if we wouldnt have had to go through communism, romania wouldve been way different today. still have hope for us tho!
