Title: World War I Pictures


1
World War I Pictures
  • 1914-1918

2
Map of Europe during WWI
3
What sparked the beginning of WWI?
  • The assassination of an Austrian prince Archduke
    Francis Ferdinand and his wife.
  • Alliances (gangs) of countries went to war with
    each other.

4
What brought U.S. into WWI?
  • The sinking of the Lusitania, a cargo ship
    carrying passengers and weapons to Great Britain.
    German subs torpedoed the ship and sunk it.

5
More Lusitania pictures.
6
WWI was the 1st mechanized war
  • That means machines were used to fight in the war.

7
Submarine warfare
  • The Lusitania was sunk by a German sub like this
    one.
  • Unrestricted submarine warfare meant the Germans
    shot at all ships, not just British and French.
  • America claimed it was neutral in the war, but in
    reality it was selling weapons to France and
    Great Britain. Germany knew this and torpedoed
    ships like the Lusitania.

8
Trench warfare
  • WWI is known for its trench warfare. Soldiers on
    all sides would dig trenches to protect them from
    gunfire and anything else.

9
New weapons from WWI
  • This is a machine gun from WWI.
  • If you are in a trench and you are attacked, you
    will want one of these.

10
Airplanes
  • Airplanes were used for war for the first time
    during WWI.
  • The most famous pilot of WWI was the Red Baron.
    He was German.

11
More airplanes
  • Airplanes would drop bombs by hand into the
    trenches. They had machine guns mounted on them.

12
Zeppelins
  • Germans used zeppelins to bomb targets from an
    altitude that WWI planes could not reach.

13
More Zeppelins!
  • Often English pilots would pursue the zeppelins
    across the sky but they had little chance of
    catching them. The zeppelins would fly very high
    and as fast as the airplane chasing it. To make
    matters worse, if a pilot did manage to catch up
    to the airship, the zeppelins were bristling with
    machine guns.

14
How do you successfully fight in trench
warfare?
15
TANKS!!!
16
More Tanks!
17
Biochemical warfare
  • WWI was a rare war where chemical weapons were
    used.
  • Mustard and tear gas were used to bring soldiers
    out of the trenches.
  • Some gases would blind soldiers.

18
Total War!!
  • Total war is using your entire economy and
    resources for the war effort.
  • It also means purposefully attacking civilians,
    not just military.
