Del Penhall writes about road blocks...
"Besides disrupting traffic in general, another purpose of road blocks (it was said)
was to force vehicles onto a limited number of roads which they would "zero in" with their artillery.
Other road blocks we met consisted of deep and wide ditches and other entanglements."
