enemies or was?
'the enemy' can be treated both as singular or as plural, as far as I know.
Indeed, in terms of a country or group of soldiers it can be treated as plural http://www.oxfordlearnersdictio.../english/enemy
It seems that any collective noun (Collins: A collective noun is a noun such as `family' or `team' that refers to a group of people or things. Also see the link above.) can be treated this way.
