went on; first used by the French, but Germany used it at a large scale; tear gas, sneeze gas, chlorine was used (caused choking), phosgene (fatal), mustard gas (internal / external blistering; odorless); use of poison gas was banned after WWI - Tank : British first to use it; Navy developed them; once you reach a stalemate, you dig down to create trenches & put barbed wire around it – but tanks could break through it; often broke down; heat & conditions inside made it difficult for drivers; France had ~4,000 while Germany had ~20 Lots of trenches & extended very far
