This article is something. It a read that would do just as well on a history website. World War I is called the great war. I think it should be called the great horror based on what the soldiers and the nations suffered. It was just before we figured out how to fight a modern war and the men went through holy hell each and every day.
What this article focuses on are the battalion kitchens and their fight to feed the men on the front lines. These were kitchens on wheels and the were attacked in the same ways that the fighting forces were. When you read about the creations that were put together in these kitchens and in the trenches it will blow your mind. It will give you a great appreciation for the conditions you live in today.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
