WWI has always boggled my mind. The British and French refused to learn from the American Civil War--or from the 1870-71 Franco-Prussian War and persisted in sending tightly packed formations in frontal assaults against dug-in troops with machine guns and lots of artillery support. Where did those men find the courage to throw themselves repeatedly into that malestom of steel and high explosives year after bloody year?

Those tactics, at that time considering artillery and machine guns were nothing short of pure insanity.
