"M.G. fire must be delivered in a great volume so as to strike enemy like a blow in the face and entirely to cripple him. The moral effect of its fire must [deleted]never[deleted] be increased by never exposing the gun itself and allowing itself to be betrayed by its fire alone. The gun must always remain concealed, bursting into activity, now here, now there, with the disconcerting suddenness of some evil spirit spreading terror and confusion among the ranks of the enemy. [inserted][Kaiser?][inserted] They should be the death-dealing spirits of the battlefield, invincible but none the less powerful, whose very silence suggests only that they are awaiting a suitable victim whom they may crush." [?pkin?]
On these principles must machine gunners be trained & led into battle to assure complete success.
