The worst part is not the waiting. You get used to that.
The worst part is either running out of toilet paper (or any concievable substitute) or the getting killed part.
Being scared sh*tless is actually desirable but only happens to the lucky few.... for some unfortunates it is quite the opposite. (See above.)
While it seems that the getting killed part can be quick it frequently is not and generally appears to hurt like hell.
I was never able to speak with any one who experienced it to get a confirmation after the fact.
I have not been killed yet and would rather wait for that to happen than to experience it soon.

To be fair I think danlongman probably had a valid point. On balance, the worst part of war is not really the waiting; not when compared to treading on a land mine, being tossed 6 ft in the air (sans wedding tackle and a limb or two) and then falling in a heap in no man's land, where you become the target for the enemy's shooting practice. To be perfectly honest, and given the option, I'd be perfectly happy to be bored for a few hours waiting for something to happen...like for the war to end, thanks all the same.....

My uncle would disagree about that. I think it depends on in what service you are. He was on a Dutch merchantmen during the war. He stated that the waiting for the torpedo from a U-boat was the most difficult thing. You know they are there, but when will they attack and what ship will they take for a target...

I agree Warspite, although Centaurs post certainly puts a different but equally valid perspective on it
I think my signature line sums it all up perfectly

My error, I should have put a after my post....

Perfectly understand why waiting could be as bad - or worse - than being in a battle because of the sheer strain on the nerves. Let's face it - war is hell; and yes, you siggy says it very well.
