World War I was a war of many technological innovations when rifles and artillery-like cannons were created and used in the narrow trenches. For the same reason, forces had to come up with weapons that could effectively be used in those foxholes dug into the ground. This war involved a lot of sneaking into the enemy’s positions that would result in brutally close combats. One well-known weapon was the trench knives (they’re pretty awesome, and we wrote about them here.) One of the not-so-famous ones was the trench club. For what it’s worth, it’s pretty amazing, too.
