This tool is a very important tool that every soldier should have during World War I. This tool is so important because it will allow you to dig trenches in the ground on the battle field. It is very important that you would have to dig trenches because the enemies would shoot you if you were on the ground, but if you dig down then they can't shoot you.

A cannon would be a very useful thing in the War. It is one of the only weapons that could get over and into the trench to kill other people. A rifle wouldn't be able to get over and into the trench because it's shooting on a straight line, but a cannon is on an angle which would allow the cannonball to go over the edge of the trench. It would also be very useful because the cannon makes an explosion which would in return kill more than one person at a time.
