I think that this is the quote that you want, "The battle was like the grinding of an immense and terrible machine to him. Its complexities and powers, its grim processes, fascinated him. He must go close and see it produce corpses."

I think there is also the metaphor of a great orchestra in the distance, "He was transfixed by this terrific medley of all noises."
