"over the top" wwi question?

Asked: "over the top" wwi question?

What was the survival rate of going "over the top" to no-man's land and attempting to take the enemy's trenches? My teacher told me that the men that charged forward basically went on a suicide mission. If they weren't killed in no-man's land by the machine guns and mortars, then they were killed in the enemy's trench cause they weren't enough of them left and the enemy overwhelmed them.

Is that correct? I want to know the percent chance of a soldier in WWI coming back to home trench alive.
