All Quiet on the Western Front

All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque

It was supposed to be "The War to End All Wars."

For over four years World War One raged on, leaving in its wake a toll
of death and destruction such as the world had never seen.

Introduction

Date: August 1917
Place: Germany
Memo to: Soldiers of Frau Adams' Platoon

RE: Assignment Code: Red Baron's Eyes

Battlefield Orders: You are a carefully chosen group of trusted soldiers who will act covertly to gather information for Kaiser Wilhelm's secret service. You are to gather information which will either confirm or disprove information already flowing into the Kaiser's staff office concerning the complicated nature of World War One. You will be covertly infiltrating the websites of the Allies (France, England, and America).

Task:

A deputy in the Kaiser's office has given you a piece of paper with hastily scrawled questions on it concerning the war. It is your job to answer these questions as completely as possible in the time available. Place questions and answers in your trench journal.

Procedure:

Click here for the hastily scrawled questions.

You will be given a list of top-secret Internet sites which can provide the information needed. Only diligent and astute observers will ferret out the necessary information. Write all questions and answers in your trench journal. Using two colors of pens for questions and answers will be helpful.

Before you finish your web quest, collect 2 or 3 pictures of World War 1 that you can print and place in your trench journal. You'll find thousands of pictures in your quest, choose carefully.

Resources:

The following links will lead you to web pages of the "Allies" (English, French, and Americans). It will provide links to all the information you are looking for. Search carefully.

Evaluation:

You will be evaluated on the accuracy of your research, how well you followed instructions, how well you completed each question, how well you searched the Internet, how well you worked together as a group (if in fact, you had to work with a comrade) to complete this covert task, and how creatively you transported your information to headquarters.

After gathering your information, please conceal your papers (your trench journal) in some kind of protective covering, for example: inside a German restaurant menu, glued to the inside of a folded map of Germany or France, secreted inside a hollowed-out book, concealed within a folded newspaper hidden in something, disguised as an old, perfumed love letter in an envelope, tucked into a soldier's boot, or baked inside a loaf of bread. Military information is worth a lot of money on the open market and could change the outcome of the war. Take care to conceal your information as it is being passed to Frau Adams.

Frau Adams will collect all information and deliver it to the Kaiser's offices. Make sure you answer the questions in complete sentences (for easy decoding)

Conclusion:

Be prepared to reveal your secret information to members of the platoon, on the date communicated to you by your teacher, to confirm that your information is correct.
