A friend who had once been on the receiving end of a 105mm barrage called it the most chaotic thing imaginable... a plethera of noise and sound so overwhelming as to drive a man mad... no end and then over, silence.  The silence almost more painful than the barrage... ended by the cries of the wounded and dieing.

How appropriate to the incident I don't know... bt you don't often run across men who have been on the receivig end of arty... modern or otherwise.


As a reaneactor I've had my clothing moved by the discharge of cannon... a unique experiance i assure you.  The sound and terror of it had to be... an experiance I would rather not think about.
