->''An' now the hugly bullets come peckin' through the dust,\\
An' no one wants to face 'em, but every beggar must;\\
So, like a man in irons, which isn't glad to go,\\
They moves 'em off by companies uncommon stiff an' slow.''\\
-- '''Creator/RudyardKipling'''

''All about combat, regardless of genre. See also WarTropes for war stories.''
