Just going through Watling's newest report. Russians are blowing the lead portions of trenches while Ukrainians are fighting through as they withdraw from the posn instead of striking it with pre-registered arty. Reinforces out practice of not consolidating on the posn but also bring my observation on patience into question. One cannot be so patient as to provide an easy target for an innovative enemy using reserved demolitions on their own posns....
The thing that caught me on that one was that they weren't doing this to be sneaky, but rather to avoid firing their artillery which would then become exposed to CB fire. More a tactic of necessity than one of ingenuity.
