This is a 7-in-1, 74 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the World War I - Key Battles of 1917. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
World War I also known as the First World War or the Great War was an extremely bloody war that engulfed Europe from 1914 to 1919. More than 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war, a casualty rate compounded by the belligerents' technological and industrial sophistication, and tactical stalemates.
Fought mostly by soldiers in trenches, World War I saw huge losses of life and little ground lost or won. While many hoped that World War I would be "the war to end all wars," it paved the way for major political changes, including revolutions in many of the nations involved. In actuality, the concluding peace treaty set the stage for World War II.
There were many, many battles fought during World War I and across a number of fronts. The following is a list of the key battles fought by date, which front, and a summary of why they are important.
The presentation coves the following:
Battle of Arras: Western Front: Vimy Ridge is a clear success, but elsewhere the allies struggle.
Second Battle of the Aisne: Western Front: The French Nivelle offensives destroy both his career and the morale of the French army.
Battle of Messines: Western Front: Mines dug under the ridge destroy the enemy and allow a clear allied victory.
The Kerensky Offensive: Eastern Front: A roll of the dice for the embattled revolutionary Russian government, the offensive fails and the anti-Bolsheviks benefit.
Battle of Third Ypres/Passchendaele: Western Front: The battle which typified the later image of the Western Front as a bloody, muddy waste of life for the British.
Battle of Caporetto: Italian Front: Germany makes a breakthrough on the Italian Front.
Battle of Cambrai: Western Front: Although the gains are lost, tanks show just how much they will change warfare.
This is one of many power point presentations I offer in my store under the heading.... World War I. I also offer each of the battles listed as individual power point presentations as well.
