Trench siege is a set in the custom history theme written by Lavertus for the purpose of encouraging an interest in history in younger people. It is the first set that depicts a generalised situation, given that the First World War had many battles.
The set is a small build in order to minimise the cost (the set would retail for £5.00). It details a stereotypical First World war battle. It depicts some British soldiers attempting to storm the German trench. The set also contains a book detailing historical information. The soldiers all have the same rifle piece, however it is meant to represent different firearms; the British soldiers are carrying the Short Magazine Lee Enfield MK 3, whereas the German is carrying a Gewehr 98.
The book contains information about the First World War in general for example the weapons and the dates of the key battles.
