The trenches of World War 1 were muddy. The solders could not get clean. Many solders had infections in their penises. Jews did not. Americans circumcised all their solders to get rid of the infections caused by the filth. At that point circumcision became popular among white Americans. Since Black Solders were not used in the front lines but in supply, they were not circumcised. Circumcision is not generally practiced among Black Americans.

The trenches were muddy, dirty, full of lice and rats, if it rained you were in for it. sometimes it was as if you were walking though a dirty swimming pool. there was a horrible disease which the soldiers called trench foot. the sympyoms of this are feet swelling up to about 3 times the normal size, numbing of the feet so you wouldn't be able to feel them and after all this had happened you had a horrific pain in your feet i remember hearing people cry out in pain when they put their shoes on.

well they were TERRIBLE!!! the trench would be really deep and filled with mud. If you were in a trench there were preetty good chances that if you werent dead the person next to you would be and he'd basically be your neighbor for as long as you were there (which was pretty long) plus you wouldn't really eat at all, you'd have to suffer watchin people die right next to you, disease went around, plus the trench would be filled with swarming cockroaches and rats and other pest! Also people would have trouble getting out of them and if you were invaded by the survivors of the 'no-man's land' they would just jump in and kill whoever they got to. Oh and you were dead if a plane came ovr you and dropped a bomb or if you tried to cross no mans land where there were bombings, mines (explosives underground that exploded when stepped on), and barbed wire. Hope this helped, i just finished the topic myself, now I'm learning about the Holocaust and World War 2 and we watched a documentary called 'Paperclips' about this class collecting paperclips to represent all who died in the holocaust and it was really an eye opener. i cried. my friend recommended it to my teacher to watch so you could do the same thing wen you get to that topic. Its a really nice movie to watch and it really means alot, my class is righting letter to them. have a nice day! :-)))

I believe that the trenches wouldn't have been much better than they were in world war 1. If they were better, they would have been more like the ones the Germans had in world war 1.
