World War I is well known for being caught between traditional and modern warfare. Although field telephones and telegraph lines were found across the battlefields, there was still reliance on more simple means of communication... the carrier pigeon. It is estimated that half a million pigeons were used by the fighting nations of WWI. It also estimated that 95% of all pigeons carrying messages during the war successfully made it to their destinations.
