To quote: "the worst part of the war is the waiting"...
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.....
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

Our lives may be more boring than those who lived in apocalyptic times,
but being bored is greatly preferable to being prematurely dead because of some ideological fantasy. - Michael Burleigh
