Explosion

Quote of the Week

Laurie_Lee
Laurie Lee (1914-1997)

When a shell hit the ground and exploded near by, the snow rose in the air like a dirty ghost, and hung there spikily billowing, before collapsing into the ground again. Such apparitions increased all around me, lifting, hovering and falling, together with the brutal rending and peeling back of the air, and the knowledge that under bombardment one has no courage.

(Laurie Lee: A Moment of War)
