what is the meaning of trenches

Like most of what Pyle sent in over the wire, it has a striking visual vigor and simplicity, down to the comic-book sound effects — put a grinning American soldier in the foreground, and you have got a perfect Norman Rockwell war poster. As a result, the rats unfortunately gradually increased until they became a major problem to the soldiers. His eye was caught by an odd detail: “Out of one window there waves something that looks like a white bed sheet, a window curtain swinging free in this night breeze. And there was the almost daily occurrence of the routine patrol turned into a nightmare by friendly fire. There was the murderous stupidity of a supply clerk up the line who contemptuously mishandled an urgent request for emergency provisions — on Guadalcanal, for instance, desperately needed drinking water arrived in used oil drums nobody had thought to wash out first. Murrow was standing on a rooftop at night, looking out on a blacked-out roof-scape lit up by flashes of antiaircraft fire and distant swarming searchlights. First person accounts, photos and rare footage from the front bring home the horror and heroism of the “War to End All Wars”. In any anthology of wartime journalism (it happens constantly in Reporting World War II), you can find instances of reporters coming up against the fundamental truth of the war and being unable to say what it was. There may be one period of fever, or the fever may recur several times at intervals of four to five days. Instead they resorted to a curious verbal tic, almost an involuntary distress signal, to mark the place where their verbal abilities left off and the incommunicable reality of what they were witnessing began. It was more like a haunted house: some kind of border zone where the barriers between this world and the next were dissolving, and ghosts came fluttering up out of nothingness. American troops on the ground were so frequently bombed by their own planes that they were known to shoot back with their heaviest guns. But when it came to what was happening on the battlefields themselves the unbreakable silence closed in. But the First Amendment was still in force back home; unlike the newspapers of the Axis, which were wholly given over to government-enforced fantasies of imminent global triumph, American newspapers were still free, at least in theory, to publish whatever they liked. The news was being censored of course: American reporters in the field, like those of every combatant nation, had to submit all stories for official clearance, and reporters who tried to describe the war honestly would quickly find their stories going unapproved and their press credentials in doubt.

Every few seconds one of the shells would go off, and the projectile would tear into the sky with a weird whang-zing sort of noise.” On the flight deck a fuel truck exploded and began shooting wide fans of ignited fuel in all directions; the captain and the rest of the senior officers, watching in horror from the bridge, were caught in the spray, and they all burned to death. There was the arrogant lieutenant fresh out of officer school who was assigned to lead troops into battle and turned coward under fire or was fatally befuddled by ambiguous orders. First person accounts, photos and rare footage from the front bring home the horror and heroism of the "War to End All Wars".
