Word of the day

i learned 2 new words today, so i thought i'd share.

defilade
n : the arrangement of defensive fortifications to protect against enemy fire

so, a sheet over the top of your cube or a wall of trash cans in front of your cube are a defilade.

enfilade
n : gunfire directed along the length rather than the breadth of a formation
v : rake or be in a position to rake with gunfire in a lengthwise direction
