Example text

Trench warfare had been imposed on both sides during the fall of 1914, and by the winter of 1914-15 mobile warfare had ended. From the English Channel to the border of Switzerland two trench systems scarred Belgium and France. Between them, at distances varying from a few yards to a hundred or more was No-Man's-Land, a shell-pocked killing ground strewn with the debris of war. In front of each trench, hung on wooden stakes or iron rods, was barbed wire. It varied in depth from one or two strands to ten or twenty feet, and in height from three to five feet.

Units in the line had to report each day the number of enemy shells that landed in their area. This gave the staff information about any build-up of enemy artillery on the front. There was always the possibility of a raid and there was always a certain amount of patrolling out in No-Man's-Land . . There was always the thought of enemy deserters coming over . . 11 The thrill Pearkes felt in his initial visit to the front line came as a result of the nearness of the enemy, but as the months wore on what was new On Active Service 33 and exciting became old and routine.

In front of each trench, hung on wooden stakes or iron rods, was barbed wire. It varied in depth from one or two strands to ten or twenty feet, and in height from three to five feet. Subjected to the weather and the pounding of artillery and mortar shells as well as small arms fire, it frequently needed replacement in part or in whole. It was the last physical barrier to coming to grips with the enemy, and it could impose a disastrous delay on the attackers. The trenches themselves varied according to terrain, the water level, the degree of observation enjoyed by the enemy, and other factors.
