Defend against the Austrians, relax after the assault, and shock us with another attack. It is tiring for us all. We do little physical work, but we are mentally exhausted. I am nervous, and I believe that everyone else is. With the Austrians at one end, and The Beast waiting at the other, stalking us. It is a nerve racking reality.
