Description

Excerpt from Atlas to Alison's History of Europe Parallels, in the attack of a place, are wide trenches affording the besieging troops a free covered communication between their various batteries and approaches. The first parallel is the first work of an attack which is laid down. Theoretically it is placed 600 yards from the covered way. Parapet. The screen which in a fortified post covers the troops and guns from the enemy's observation and fire usually a bank of earth. It is made high enough to cover the tallest man, and thick enough to stand against the heaviest shot that are likely to be discharged at it.
