What does this artifact tell us about the First World War?
The gas mask that were being used during the First World War showed how atrocious the war was especially with the extremity use of chemical gas that was intended to kill many. No one had ever expected the use of poison gas during the warfare but the Germans was first to introduce the usage of the chemical gas during the war. Thereon, the gas mask was then created to provide protection and prevent harm on oneself; however to a certain limit. Throughout the years, with new technology and such, the gas mask has been heavily improved and is still being used to this day.
