The battle of SommeJune 1, 1916 was the bloodiest battle that the Allies have seen. Nearly 57,470 British soliders casualities were killed the first day. This was largly in part to the Germans using rapid fire machine guns.

During the 2nd Battle of Ypres on April 22, 1915, German forces unleashed the first round of chlorine gas against the Allies. It proved to be fatal, and gave birth to a new way of fighting: biological warfare

On November 11, 1918 the fighting stopped. A peace treaty was signed in 1919. Germany lost the war, and in the treaty was forced to take blame and pay for the damages.
