WW1 brought technological innovations like poison gas, the machine gun, and trench warfare. While medical innovations lacked the science of violence put both soldiers and animals (horses for example) in a very dangerous position. WE see, for example, Kemmerick slowly die from a light wound and horses scream in unnatural terror from the bombs and guns that shred their flesh. THe introduction of poisonous gas to the trenches was also horrible.
