Shock Action

"Fire and fire only is hopeless if the enemy ever makes contact. Weapons of shock are the crusher and pincers which are held in the hands of the assailant. Shock weapons are the military instruments par excellence. They are not only employed by courageous fighters anxious to close with the enemy, deliver him a blow, and win a decision, but they are truly the deadly. They win battles. (H. Turney-High, Primitive War: Its Practice and Concepts, 12).
