Nov 3rd, 2016: Trenches... dig it?

In WW I, between the good guys and the bad guys(your choice), dug 12,000 miles(19,312 kilometers) of trenches.

They were told to do this, but I'll bet not many were.



This is more like it.



And too many were like this.



We've all seen pictures of the actual trenches and they look pretty miserable places to be.
It wasn't until the Americans arrived that things changed. I've read they were taught mobile/flanking maneuvers
by an Aussie training instructor, but I can't remember his name.

Wait, where's the one with the rats and the arms of the fallen sticking out from the "walls"?
That would make a lovely resin model.

Very interesting though, thank you.

Sundae, I can see you are one sick lady. I have to get a passport.
