Leland Linman’s War: A Look at Soldiers’ Daily Lives in World War I

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson, students compare what a normal soldier’s life looks like compared to the standard description of trench warfare. Leland Linman’s diary covers the parts of war that often get left out: miles of marching, hours of moving artillery shells from one place to another, and lousy food. In this lesson, the goal is to point out that a tremendous amount of movement happens in war – even trench war – that should be included to complete the whole picture.
