What is that crawling along the
ground behind our line? there
is one here, 'another over there -it
looks so novel and so odd. They are
crawling back out of the firing-line.
And I see how-one of them suddenly
tries to rise, clutches his rifle with
both hands, and hauls himself to his
feet by his gun. And now he is
spreading his arms out, tumbling
over backwards, and flinging his
hands away from him, far apart
his hands are still flapping up
and down on the grass. I am looking
back as if fascinated while my legs
keep on advancing.
But suddenly something seems to
set up a rattle over there in the wood
and buzzes like huge alarm-clocks
And there we are lying down, flat
on our stomachs, as if we had already
been mown down, for every man of
us knows what that was. They have,
masked machine-guns in the wood
over there; they are opening fire on
us. I feel how my heart is thumping
against my ribs. A machine-gun is

of skirmishers, close up to us, have
disappeared from the face of the
earth; they, too, have gone to cover
in the grass. Only outside the firing
zone are they still being pushed for
ward. Shall -we have to retreat? Are we
going to attack?
"Rapid fire! - Into the wood!"
Yes, but what are we to fire at?
Lying down,' there is nothing to be
seen of the sharpshooters. They
won't do us any harm; in. another
minute they will have disappeared
among the trees. But the machines
they have hidden them away
among the foliage to good purpose.
