You mean from the channel? I think at different points in the war yes but not all at once.
>>
>>4492684
just about - but you would also have to transverse the natural features (rivers, canals, hills, mountains, coal patches, etc) that both sides used to their own advantage and through which no trench could be dug.
I originally became interested in WWI when i had the thought of, "why the hell didn't they just go around the strong points in the west" and learned that the entire line was pretty much a strong point.

There are plenty other reasons to hate Churchill but he had next to nothing to do with the way the landings at Gallipoli were botched completely, blame Hamilton for that
>>
>>4493152
Thanks m8
>>
>>4493213
hamilton deserves a huge heaping of blame (to put it nicely). but, i would argue, it was churchill's rash and short-sighted campaign aims that put (and kept!) the troops on the peninsula with no real strategic goal other than to capture the dardanelles. how?, who knew. at what cost?, they'd find out.
and why land them at the foot of the jetty?
the entire campaign was a huge disaster in the making. and then it became a disaster.

churchill didn't spend 8 self-flagellating months in the wet french trenches for no reason.

Of course there is no way to be sure, but it looks like the solider on the left is saying something a long the lines of "Je". Really cool to speculate what these 2 people from 2 different parts of the world were talking about in tg midst of something like this. Especially if there was a language barrier.

Its weird but every time I see a post battle picture like this I Just think, all those bodies had families, Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, wives, kids, hopes, dreams, hobbies, memories of their past and plans for their future. And in a split second that's all gone, reduced to nothing more than one of many unrecognizable corpses that litter the ground.

Fuck DICE, BF1 would be better if it were moddable (and therefore one could make a mod that replicated Red Orchestra-style mechanics, but kept the terrain destruction)

WW2 is easier to meme because it's closer in our memory, more significant Burger involvement, the Holocaust, etc.
Personally I find The Great War to be far more compelling and tragic. It was more than just this world changing conflict, it was the death of the old world and the birth of the modern in many ways.
