Europe since pre-Roman times has been marked by conflict Warring tribes often did battle in small skirmishes and hand-to-hand combat But as the civilizations grew and technology improved the battles became larger and much more intense With the Industrial revolution warfare would change forever This can be best seen in World War One The war to end all wars gradually escalated to a global conflict dragging the super powers into a four year struggle World War One brought many new and horrible inventions to the participants both at the front as well as at homeThere are many reasons why World War I was so much different than all the past conflicts For one thing it was the first time in almost one hundred years that all the major super powers were fighting Not since Napoleons defeat at Waterloo had England France Germany Prussia at the time of Napoleon and Russia been fighting at the same time This in turn made it a global conflict With all the over sea possessions of these countries fighting was inevitable in their colonies This was another first for World War I Another huge aspect that made this war the first truly modern war has to do with the Industrial Revolution This revolution did change the nature of battle No longer was war considered to be one-on-one With the improvement of the gun and invention of the machine gun almost anybody could become capable of killing many enemy soldiers Industrialization of the warring countries meant a better railroad system In turn this meant that moving the supplies of war to the front line could be done relatively easily For the first time also countries were able use the entire industrial resources to help insure victory with industrial might A final difference from this war from any other was the use of science and war It was during this time when science was looked upon to help break the stalemate
