A soldier waiting in a fort for his moment of glory in anticipation of meeting his enemy in the battlefield.
Waiting, waiting and waiting....... till you are almost about to give up the book out of sheer boredom, but you still read on hoping for something substantial to happen, but finally end it feeling totally dispirited.
