On my lunch time, so I have to be quick. Most of the way through a long military scene and my writing is picking up some steam. This weekend is busy with two games and helping a friend pack his deceased mother's belongings.

How much detail should be in a scene where the nominal protagonists have to attack an enemy supply depot? Should the killing happen off screen, on screen, or both?
I'm currently favoring off screen as the actual killing is not critical to the story itself. I find using Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising to be a good touchstone for things like this. What are your thoughts?
Also, Happy Star Wars Day!
