Item #: SCP-186

Object Class: Euclid

Laconic Containment Procedures: An automated security perimeter has been constructed around SCP-186. Access is forbidden.

Laconic Description: SCP-186 is a battlefield near Husiatyn, Ukraine where Russia and Germany fought each other with anomalous weaponry during World War I.

Additional Context: World War I was a horrifying war. The drudgery and insanity of trench warfare, widespread chemical warfare, and the carnage enabled by being the first truly mechanized war left a psychological scar on Europe and elsewhere.

Before the war, many intellectuals thought that if war were made too terrible to bear, wars would end. This did not happen. SCP-186 represents an exaggerated version of these ideas and the outcome of their failure.
