World War I was a war known for fighting in trenches. The two sides — British and French on one and Germans on the other — established trench systems opposite one another that barely moved for four years. But that did not mean the two sides did not try to break through the other’s system. Each launched major offensives that ended up in great battles with hundreds of thousands of dead and wounded. This course will present such battles, their causes, and consequences.
