a very common sight indeed, like Fort Douaumont at the battle of Verdun

I can't even imagine the terror of a barrage like that creeping up on you. :-?

If they used a barrage at all; looks like they just pounded the general area to dust.

Barrages were invented later in the war and used on a large scale only by the end of the war. Any notion that the massive amounts of guns available could be used for anything other than lobbing a million shells into the other side of no-man's-land or that such bombardments often did more harm than good was lost on most commanders.

Though being bombed constantly for a week is probably worse than facing a barrage of any sort...

Perhaps. Perhaps there's a limit to how terrified a man can be. I imagine any situation where you're holed up in a fortress, any place really, while it is being blasted to dust all around you, be it by shells or by bombs, would drive any man to his limit.

Not that I would know; I've been lucky to live in a country where armed conflict is a thing of the past. The not so distant past, and for now at least.

The only thing I could think of that would be worse than getting shelled or bombed for weeks on end would be the dreaded mustard gas attacks that happened towards the end of the Great War. The weapon was considered so horrific that it was banned from use in combat ever since.

Oberon 12-09-09 10:20 AM

Plenty of ways to find your end there. If a mortar didn't land in your trench or the gas attack didn't turn your lungs to mush then was always the option of having to go over the top and landing up either being buried alive by a shell, falling into a shell hole and drowning, getting hit by a bullet or even making it to the other trench and then getting skewered on a bayonet.
Makes me that more amazed that my great-grandfather survived it :up:

Not to talk about all the diseases that could put you down, and the horrible medical treatment.

We ascended to 5,000 feet over Chaulnes by noon- on April 29, 1918.

We met our slow and bulky contact less than 15 minutes later near the frontlines.

The Brits decided they could take us on as we passed into their lines, and so the fight began.

I brought my guns to bear on one chap and shot him dead in the cockpit.

Out in the distance, I noticed some Breguets moving in on our positions. The DFW having already absconded home, we decided to engage them.

The results were less than desirable, as I was sent whirling down to the ground in flames, my wings torn from my body.

That reminds me, the Fokker E.V will be out before long:

Happy Holidays Everone.

Schroeder 12-19-09 04:24 PM
