This week is all about one of the most unique aspects of WW1, trench warfare.

Trench warfare was a key component of WW1 and was unique in that it only developed in the one area of the war. It had a significant impact on everything to battle tactics to weapon development as both sides tried to break the deadlock of the Western Front.
