from Dnews:

"... World War I also saw the introduction of new technologies that changed society. From tanks to machine guns, radio communications to air travel, blood banking to sanitary napkins, the so-called 'Great War' was a bridge between the 19th century Industrial Revolution to the 20th century modern era.

"Here are a few innovations – good and bad – that first saw light during a conflict that lasted from 1914 to 1918, and left 37 million soldiers and civilians killed or wounded."
