I am reading a book "What was it like?" with my 6 year old.
"We've come back to the war," gasped Chip.
suddenly there was a long wailing sound.
I checked dictionaries but still not sure about the meaning of "gasped" and "wailing sound" in the given context.

To gasp, close your mouth, then open it quickly and inhale a breath of air. To wail is to make, or imitate, a long, high-pitched sound, similar to a siren, or the cry of a cat.
