Life in the trenches and living conditions
- The conditions in the trenches were awful, from the rats and rats who lived off the many corpses in the trenches to the inclement in the weather. the worst aspect of the trenches was the human remains left everywhere as a constant reminder that death or terrible injury was always waiting for the unwary or the unlucky.
- The smell of the trenches were awful, the smell of fear, rotting flesh, sweat and explosions filled the trenches. Many diseases, illnesses and viruses were spread in the trenches due to the pests and disgusting conditions the soldiers had to live in. The men would be wet through from rain or drizzle, and in winter they would be freezing cold.
