Traverse

 

a barrier built, or formed naturally from earth or rocks, across a trench or in front of the entrance to a fortification to protect personnel from enfilade fire, artillery shrapnel, or aerial bombing. Traverses may be built to project from one side or both sides of a trench, or they may overhang a trench in the form of a bank of earth supported by a wooden or reinforced-concrete framework. A bank behind the rear slope of a trench is called a rear traverse if it is not equipped for firing.
