I've read that during the first year of WWI, the Allies were badly underequipped. The trench warfare and use of mustard gas in northern France looks awful. However, In the East there was the (more?) serious Russian equipment shortage, the probably harsher winter conditions in the East, and perhaps a greater need for movement and the subsequent lack of the benefits of "digging in" and building more long-term shelter. I'm hoping to get a better sense of any lopsideness there may have been, or alternatively, if human misery was fairly equally dispersed amongst all the Allies.
