Conditions of Trench Warfare

Australian soldiers fought across Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Many soldiers who served in Europe engaged in trench warfare. Trenches acted as a form of defence, designed to provide protection from gunfire and stop enemy lines from advancing. In this activity, students use their visual literacy skills and primary sources to explore and develop an understanding of the conditions of trench warfare.
