If you had a time machine what knowledge would you take back to WW1?

#1
Just for a bit of fun and in the very unlikely event a time machine took you back to the start of WW1 what 1 piece of technological knowledge would you take with you which would shorten the length of the war?

Personally I would take back some ideas for better armoured vehicle design - and naturally that would lead onto tank/ infantry co-operation tactics during naafi break card games!

The location of a certain A. Hitler and of the need to defeat the German Army on home soil.

I'd also drop the odd hint about how handing Qingdao to the Japs would only encourage them and so probably wouldn't be a good idea.

That Lloyd George would be the last Welshman near the levers of power, that you still can see the future Queen's norks and that we were going to consign hundreds of thousands of bored soldiers to lives of giros and banana beer.

Naturally I would be thought of as the typical bulshitting private but then I would start talking up GPMG, Chobham and APDS technology. See ya, Fritz.
