Example text

A troop of Por­tuguese cav­al­ry had ap­peared on the crest where the sin­gle can­non was fir­ing brave­ly. A rat­tle of mus­ketry proved that some in­fantry was still fight­ing, but more and more troops were re­treat­ing past the house and Sharpe knew it could on­ly be a mat­ter of min­utes be­fore the city’s de­fens­es col­lapsed en­tire­ly. Hag­man be­gan slic­ing away at Sharpe’s hair. ” “Short like a good ser­mon, sir,” Hag­man said. ” There was a sud­den stab of pain as Hag­man speared a louse with the scis­sors’ blade.

The French did well to­day,” Christo­pher re­marked to his Por­tuguese ser­vant, a young man with re­ced­ing hair and a thin, earnest face. “The dev­il will get them in the end, sen­hor,” the ser­vant an­swered. “Some­times mere men have to do the dev­il’s busi­ness,” Christo­pher said. He drew a small tele­scope from his pock­et and trained it on the far hills. ” “If you say so, sen­hor,” the ser­vant an­swered. ’” “If you say so, sen­hor,” the ser­vant re­peat­ed, won­der­ing why the En­glish of­fi­cer called him Ho­ra­tio when his name was Luis, but he thought it was prob­ably bet­ter not to ask.

He saw Sharpe’s puz­zle­ment, “Mac­beth, Lieu­tenant,” he ex­plained as he spurred his horse to­ward the gate, “a play by Shake­speare. ” In that, at least, he was right. A great spume of dust and smoke was boil­ing out from the cen­tral re­doubts of the city’s north­ern de­fens­es. That was where the Por­tuguese had been putting up the strongest re­sis­tance, but the French ar­tillery had man­aged to throw down the para­pets and now their in­fantry as­sault­ed the bas­tions, and the ma­jor­ity of the city’s de­fend­ers were flee­ing.
