How would you interpret this phrase? How would you interpret this phrase ‘the crew scared’ in the last sentence? What do you think scared the crew? Thanks. It’s from A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (Chapter 9). the context: It was dark outside and the long light from the search-lights was moving over the mountains. There were big search-lights on that front mounted on camions that you passed sometimes on the roads at night, close behind the lines, the camion stopped a little off the road, an officer directing the light and the crew scared.

The crew was "close behind the lines" or near the battle, so they were scared.
