Explanation

The same-direction semi-colon trigger and the clues arduous combat, two battles in two days and subsequent defeat require that the blank mean something like exhaustion. None of bellicosity, pugnacity, pacification, or aggravation means exhaustion, so eliminate choices (A), (B), (C), and (E). Enervation means weakening, so select choice (D).

Hence option D is correct!
