The Western Front

“Smoke them out, smoke them out!” one soldier barked throwing a smoke grenade in the hole.
“They are coming!” another yelled.
They thought dozens of enemies had been hiding in a trench for more than a week. No food and no water left.
“Come out of there!” the first soldier barked again. “We’ll go in, if you don’t come out, right now!”
They were the winners. The losers would have to obey.
“Yeah!” they all yelled.
The thick heavy smoke was unbearable.
In the end, the hundreds were five teenage soldiers scared to death.
Soldiers and kids, no winners there…
