Travel Notes - Online Guide to Travel Travel Notes > Travel Notes Blog: January - World War One Trenches

Commemorating the centenary of the 1914-1918 Great War, Travel Pics remembers.

Front Line

On the Western Front, during World War One, much of the war was spent in trenches.

Soldiers lived together day and night in these long, narrow ditches, dug into the earth.

Life in the Trenches:
The trenches defined the front lines and were held by infantry.

Deadly Trenches:
Death was a constant threat to those serving in the line.
