Trench warfare is a form of war where the combatants are sheltered in fortified lines, consisting largely of trenches in which soldiers are relatively protected from small arms and artillery. It has become a familiar term for the war of position, paralysis of the conflict and the depletion of opposing forces.
Trench warfare was caused by a revolution in firepower that was not followed by similar progress in the mobility of troops. This results in a grueling form of war in which the defense is always stronger than the attack. During World War II, the two sides worked out trench systems face to face along the front, protected by barbed son. The area bounded by the opposing trenches (known as the no man's land) is subject to artillery fire from both sides. Losses during the assaults are extremely heavy and are part of trench warfare.
