Twice, where the road was stopped by entanglements of barbed wire,

he had to cross it to crawl through a gap on the further side. He was

very near to death many times, but he came to his goal unbattered 

at the last   ... 

It was a wonderful thing that he reached the front line at all.

It was a miracle that he came back. But the did so, and by the

same way an hour later, and he brought back with him news that

was worth much to his side.

Acting on that knowledge , his Colonel that evening launched a

counter-attack , [insert] and [/insert] which  drove the Germans back to their own trenches

once more!
