WW1 themed similes and metaphors by Year 6
Mist filled the air like a blanket of death as the soldiers marched across the field.
The Germans are sacrificing shields.
The bombs, as loud as thunder, made the soldiers deaf, as they were begging for freedom.
The clap-traps protruded from the ground, as the soldiers sprinted through the battleground like outraged yeti’s.
The rocks were like daggers scrapping the bottom of the swollen feet of the brave soldiers.
The soldiers are tamed beasts commanded by their general.
Bullets as hasty as an aggressive bee targeting their intruder.
The guns were a volcano erupting on a summer’s day.
As deadly as a shot to the heart, the gas flew over the soldiers’ heads and they knew they were in for a slice of death.
Trees stood in sludge like burnt cigarettes, as the soldier trudged towards the Germans.
Bullets screamed over the soldiers’ heads like birds soaring through the sky on a clear summer’s day.
Toxic gas spread over the soot-grey sky like butter on hot toast.
