(World War One Trench) One of the most important tools to have if you wanted to survive world war was a shovel. With out this shovel you had no trench. With out a trench you were asking to be killed.
If you don't have a rifle I'm not sure why your even on a battle field. If you wanted to return fire on the enemy you would need a rifle. A rifle would also keep you and your fellow soldiers safe.
The final thing you would need to survive is a helmet. A helmet would protect you from the shrapnel of bullets. With out a helmet your head is completely exposed, some protection is better than none.
