The war was fought on land and water.

On land, Germany and Britain built trenches, and this was known as the trench warfare. Because both built trenches, they were pretty much stuck, they couldn't move because if one person was seen by the enemy, he was most likely killed. In between the trenches, there was the "No Man's Land" and that is where all the shells and bullets landed. While Britain's trenches were a mess, Germany's was very organized (since they were very into engineering). The trenches were used as refuge and storage. The two sides used tanks, machine guns, poison gas, and airplanes.

As for water, there wasn't really any fighting, but there lots of attacks. When Germany built their U-boats, they used their power of secrecy to attack boats from underneath. This is known as the submarine warfare. The famous sinking done by the Germans was the sinking of USA's Lusitania, a passenger ship, on May 7, 1915. In the meantime, British ships were turning American ships around, sending them back where they came from. Both Germany and Britain were trying to deprive each other of getting supplies from trade.

World War One was so much different than any war before it. New weapons and the size of armies led to massive offensives and then trench warfare when the assaults failed. However, there was much more that separated World War One from other wars. The new weapons caused :

1. War aircraft planes were used to bomb enemy armies and to fight the air to air battles of the new flying "weapons;

2. The machine gun had now been fully developed ( for this point in time ) and proved to be a deadly deterrent to charging enemy forces;

3. Sear warfare was intense carried out by huge battleships and submarines; and

4. The introduction of armored "war chariots" the battle tank was introduced, and although not that effective, would soon become a powerful ground weapon in future wars.

On land, defensive actions were fought too effectively. The offense was lacking, which resulted in an entrenched stalemate for much of the war.
