Battlefield 1 trench warfare VS real life trench warfare
Through the sandstorm with the Battlefield 1 map Sinai Desert! World War 1 isn’t being called a world war for nothing, the fights are spread over multiple locations. In the middle-east the allied army was fighting against the Ottoman Empire for control over the Suez channel. This was the inspire to create Sinai Desert. One of the biggest battlefield 1 maps.
Sinai Desert gives the player the multiple elements to give you the best warfare experience such as riding on horse’s through the small alleys, brutally cutting into the enemy soldiers while being shot at from the windows. Fighting in the most epic historical warplanes. Steamrolling trough the small village and destroying everything on your path.
If one team gets a bonus, then the Armored Train Behemoth can be brought into the battle which makes the map even more challenging. The train gives a range of weapons to the team which can make a big difference in the match end result, if used correctly.
The Sinai campaign is less well known than other First World War campaigns such as Gallipoli and those on the Western Front, yet it was the first major step in the ultimate Allied victory over the Ottoman Turks in the Middle East. The key goal of the campaign was to secure the Suez Canal from the threat of Ottoman attack from the Sinai Peninsula. The canal was a vital transport route that allowed Allied shipping to pass directly from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea and Europe, avoiding the need to travel all the way around Africa and through the South Atlantic Ocean.
From April 1916 to January 1917 the Egyptian Expeditionary Force, made up of units from across the British Empire, including the 1800-strong New Zealand Mounted Rifles Brigade and the New Zealand companies of the Imperial Camel Corps, pushed the Ottoman Army back to Palestine in a series of battles fought in the harsh Sinai Desert.
The immense challenges posed by the unforgiving environment of the Sinai Peninsula often proved to be as hard to deal with as the actual fighting against the Turks.
The St. Quentin Scar is the most quintessential WW1 map, featuring norther France torn apart by trench warfare. As part of the Kaiser’s battle, German forces will need to break through the British lines and attempt to assault Travecy, a village so far untouched by the war.

The Allies were pursuing the Germans, and the greatest obstacle to crossing the Somme River in pursuit was Mont Saint-Quentin which, situated in a bend of the river, dominated the whole position. The Mont was only 100 meters high but was a key to the German defense of the Somme line, and the last German stronghold. It overlooked the Somme River approximately 1.5 kilometers north of Péronne. Its location made it an ideal observation point, and strategically, the hill’s defenses guarded the north and western approaches to the town.
Australian forces faced the German 51. Korps, part of 2nd Armey, under General Max von Boehn. According to Australian official historian Charles Bean, “German archives show that the 51st Corps anticipated the offensive… The line divisions were ordered to increase their depth and the counter-attack divisions to ‘stand to. Bean states that 51. Korps controlled the 5th Royal Bavarian Division, 1st Reserve Division and 119th Division. The German 94th Infantry Regiment (part of 4th Reserve-Korps) was also involved in the battle.
Along the Adriatic coast a fierce struggle for land and life is taking place. A rugged but fortified shore becomes the battlefield for an empire under siege. What was once a beautiful Mediterranean village by the coast is now transformed by mechanised war, where waves and dreadnought battleships pound the remains of Italy’s Great War.
On 6 August 1914, an Anglo-French naval agreement was signed, giving France the leadership of naval operations in the Mediterranean. The remaining British Mediterranean forces, one armored cruiser, four light cruisers, and 16 destroyers were placed under the control of the French Mediterranean Fleet and both Gibraltar and Malta would be open as bases to the French.
One day after the French declaration of war against Austria-Hungary on 11 August, the French fleet—under Admiral Augustin Boué de Lapeyrère—entered Malta. He had orders to sail with all available French and British ships, pass into the Adriatic Sea and undertake whatever operation he thought best against an Austrian port. Lapeyrère decided to surprise the Austrian vessels enforcing a blockade of Montenegro. The main Allied force comprised the French battleships Courbet, Jean Bart, and the cruiser Julien De La Graviere. Two French squadrons of pre-dreadnoughts, two squadrons of cruisers, and five destroyer squadrons were held back in support. The British support group comprised two armored cruisers and three destroyer divisions. The Anglo-French force succeeded in cutting off and sinking the Austro-Hungarian light cruiser SMS Zenta off Bar on 16 August.
Throughout most of late August most of the action was simple bombardment of Serbian and Montenegrin troops by Austrian ships. On 9 August, the pre-dreadnought SMS Monarch shelled the French radio station at Budva, while the destroyer SMS Panther shelled Mount Lovcen. On 17 August, Monarch shelled a Montenegrin radio station off Bar, then another station off Volovica Point on 19 August. Meanwhile, a French squadron shelled Austrian troops on Prevlaka.
Both the French and the Austrians spent much of this time laying extensive minefields throughout the shallow waters of the Adriatic. Mostly this was done by destroyers, and at night. Several steamships ran afoul of these mines and either sunk or were damaged.
