Alliances Alliances create situations for war and rivals.

They fought using trench warfare tactics. The opposing armies would dig a trench in the ground and then lob explosives at each other using howitzers, trench mortars, and other early weapons. For more info on the WWI weapons go to: All around the soldiers there was constant death and noise.

One would have to get used to short naps in between attacks. Animals such as rats, lice, and frogs would spread disease and soiled food. Latrines were either nonexistent or normally overfilled.

How much damage was caused in WW1? A lot, but damage was nowhere nearly as widespread as compared to WWII. Aerial bombing was not yet the destructive activity it would be in the next war.

There was some damage in the initial invasion by Germany, as they swept through Belgium into northern France. Famously, the Germans burned, on purpose, the ancient university city of Louvain, and engaged in other vandalisms. But once the war settled down to trench warfare, the damage was mostly in the area of the front line trenches, as far as the artillery could reach behind the lines on either side.

This resulted in cities and villages within that area being reduced to rubble, completely, or basically erased, unrecognizable as ever having been a town. The trenches hardly moved much, excepting a few areas where the Germans pulled back to new lines they had prepared behind their existing trenches. When they did that they would destroy everything they were leaving behind - every building, poison every water well, a general "scorched earth" approach.

But behind the lines damage was relatively slight. There were bombing raids on London by Zeppelins, and later by huge biplane Gotha bombers. The Gotha squadrons bombed other towns in Belgium and France as well, and toward the end of the war, in the last month or two, the British formed an aerial unit called the Independent Air Force, whose job was to be the strategic bombing of areas in the German rear, but, the war ended before they could really hit their stride and wreak much havoc.

The Germans also used "the Paris Guns" "Big Bertha" to bombard Paris, a huge railroad canon, firing from 75 miles away. Really though this was mostly a nuisance, though probably several hundred people were killed by "Big Bertha", the worst hit being on a crowded church one morning. But in the area of the active trenches the devastation was complete, the very soil poisoned.

After the war, the area where the trenches had been was called "Le Zone Rouge" "The Red Zone" , which still exists, though it gets a little smaller every year.

No one can live there. It still peppered with "dud" artillery shells which failed to explode - millions of them. There is a department of the French government whose job it is to find and remove these still-deadly shells - two of their employees were atomized a few months ago by a shell they apparently mishandled. There are areas in France and Belgium where farmers are obliged to have armor plate fitted to the bottom of their tractors, to avoid being blown up by WWI shells working their way to the surface, like rocks do.

At least a few people have been killed every year since the Armistice by these munitions, so the final tally for WWI is still incomplete. At the current rate it will take more than years for the French government to find and remove all the estimated millions of shells in The Zone Rouge.

What are the long term causes of the Reformation? One of the long term causes of the Reformation Movement was corruption in the Church.

The thing about papal indulgences was part of it. When you see references to an "immaculate birth," it is not the birth of Christ in question, but the birth of Mary. She supposedly was so flawless that she had so much goodness left over. So when someone sins, they could supposedly borrow some of her righteousness. Now, do you see the possibility of a scam in this?

All you would have to do in that environment is to sell "sin passes. That is basically what papal indulgences were all about. This notion of purchasing righteousness made the Church seem like a joke. Another part of the Reformation was when people got tired of not having a Bible in their own language. Supposedly, that was only the domain of learned scholars who were ordained into the clergy, and the common people had to take their word for it.

The people wanted to read and study for themselves. The Church basically had some of the translators killed. Wycliffe was one of those. He translated a lot and was put to death for it. However, King James later ordered that the Bible be translated into English, and Wycliffe's previous work made up a large portion of the final work. What can long term smoking cause?
