During WWI (1914-1918), large numbers of women were recruited into jobs vacated by men who had gone to fight in the war. New jobs were also created as part of the war effort, for example in munitions factories.
Similarly, it is asked, why was ww1 so deadly?
WWI was extremely innovative (in war technologies). The war marked the beginning of chemical warfare, tanks, machine guns, aerial warfare, submarines, etc. As much as today innovation drives the economy, then innovation drives effectiveness, which in turn drives killing and dying.
Beside above, what were the conditions like in the trenches in ww1?
Disease and 'shell shock' were rampant in the trenches. With soldiers fighting in close proximity in the trenches, usually in unsanitary conditions, infectious diseases such as dysentery, cholera and typhoid fever were common and spread rapidly.
What would you hear in ww1 trenches?
The Noise of the Trenches (Click on the WWI Video, Left, to hear the noises of the Western Front). There were also the flies, moaning of the wounded, and the stomach-turning stench of gas and decaying corpses. Many men said they did not so much hear the noise as feel it.
What were the negative effects of ww1?
The negative effects of World War 1 are:
- The deaths of almost 10 million people and the wounding of 21 million others resulting in the destruction of an entire generation of predominantly young men.
- The devastation of the economies of many European nations and the creation of huge amounts of debt.
