All I can picture now is a cow in a steel helmet.

The poignancy of the retaliation at the end there is a good reminder of the harsh reality of just assuming that you can have a war without people trying to take advantage of agreements.
It is a useful reminder that war is Hell, and the Great War more Hellish than most. When arrangements are unspoken, there's always a chance that the arrangement will be very rapidly curtailed. A new CO, a new directive, a CO in a different mood, and the deal is off.

Then people die, and others die in retaliation.
