The Assault

by JLR

It has been said, "war is hell in Kodachrome,"  as was the case one dark and dreary night.
I thought I saw a silhouette that stood out in the faint moonlight. Instinctually, I grabbed a scope and slowly moved toward the area where the profile was.
Suddenly, a mind-numbing scream! I froze in place, then, without expectation, a blast of fiery flames filled the night sky.
With the flames lighting the darkness, clearly, there was not one silhouette, but dozens! The enemy was advancing, the sentries were unaware. An assault was being mounted. Through the night, the battle was fought.
