Barrage: Guns in Action. Ballantine Illustrated History of World War II.
With the tactics of the so-called creeping barrage it was necessary to support the infantry in such a way that the artillery's line of fire was moved forward by a certain distance in a synchronised time. This spasmodically advancing 'shell curtain' served as protection against enemy fire for the infantry that moved up closely along the line of fire and thus made it possible to gradually advance into the territory to be conquered.
The barrage on the other hand served to prepare the enemy territory for the final charge by severe constant fire that often lasted for hours or even days. Next to the physical damage to the enemy it also served as psychological warfare.
It was brought into operation as an 'attrition policy' which was to undermine the soldier's fighting morale and, according to Christian Ortner, it "[…] [broke] the perseverance of even the best of troops in the end.

Only through the total mobilisation of all available resources was it possible to keep the huge war machinery going. The destructiveness of modern mechanical warfare and the mental strain caused by the days and weeks in the trenches, the constant noise of the artillery and the sight of seriously wounded and mutilated comrades produced not only an army of war wounded but also masses of soldiers suffering from war neurosis.
In the years and decades before the First World War there were many innovations in arms technology with the result that the entire war machinery and with it the strategic and tactical considerations had to be fundamentally rethought.
