Human Moles in the "Lovely Land of War"
Except in its opening and closing stages, the Great War is a “stationary war,” to be
associated forever with concepts such as trenches, no man’s land, and barbed wire
— the great attractions of what an English war poet sarcastically called the “lovely
land of war.” The soldiers’ existence is miserable beyond belief, and millions of
them are doomed to die a horrible death or be grievously mutilated . . .
