How do we use the word 'assault' (meaning a military attack)? Do we use it with prepositions, e.g:
"They launched an assault ON/AGAINST the fortress."
Can it be used as a verb? Are any prepositions needed then? e.g:
"The troops assaulted ( on/against) the town."
I''ll be grateful for your help.
Noun requires a preposition; verb doesn't:
NOUN: troops began an assault on the city
VERB: they regrouped to assault the hill
