Most of the time we were on the attack. Sometimes our advances could be measured in feet or yards and every night was filled with the tension of watching for infiltrators. We went from hill to hill and ridge to ridge, always the exposed attacker trying to root out the concealed defender. If there was anything typical about the days, it was the continual need to protect yourself from enemy fire.
