The offensive spirit in a picture (OT)

Ah, the spirit of the attack. The old infantry mission "to close with and destroy the enemy." We hear a lot about it in our military readings.

I think this wartime Japanese painting puts over an artist's conception of the offensive spirit very well.

As a former member of and exponent for the "stupid infantry," this is my cup of tea.
