Qualcuno sa cosa sia "a shell-burst"? Nel testo che sto traducendo si fa riferimento a un'esplosione. Grazie per l'aiuto!^^

    Il passaggio è questo:
    "It was the unmistakable sound of an explosion, and not the variety that might have accompanied some malfunction of the steam engine.
    'A shell-burst, Watson?' Holmes cried out to me.
    'I think not!' said I. 'The report was too dull for artillery!' "

    Ciao!

    Letteralmente: scoppio di munizioni.

    Significa il rumore che fanno le munizioni sparate dall'Artiglieria (probabilmente da un carro od a un cannone).
