Voices from World War I - Trench Simulation Response
Write a ONE PAGE response paper in which you choose the perspective of either an American, German, British, or French soldier fighting in the trenches on the Western Front in 1918. Describe in DETAIL what your life is like fighting in the trenches, and describe an event (a battle scene, artillery barrage, death of a friend, write a poem, rats nibbling your toes, etc.) that stands out as an example of the wretchedness of fighting and dying in the trenches.
This response must be TYPED, SINGLE SPACED, and ONE PAGE in length, or you can write a POEM, or create an artistic canvass of the impression that the Trenches made upon you.
