On the day of battle the soldiers excitedly try to get beyond the interests of their regiment, they listen intently, look about, and eagerly ask concerning what is going on around them.

The fog had grown so dense that though it was growing light they could not see ten paces ahead.

Bushes looked like gigantic trees and level ground like cliffs and slopes.

Anywhere, on any side, one might encounter an enemy invisible ten paces off.
