He could guess her thoughts without hearing them: she was silently clucking at the army-type who thought he could boss around a fed.
"Darkyn incorporated them into his army. He sent most to the Immortal stronghold," Jared said.
The Russian army is advancing against you to avenge the Austrian army of Ulm.
I will confess to you, dear Mary, that in spite of his extreme youth his departure for the army was a great grief to me.
He explained how an army, ninety thousand strong, was to threaten Prussia so as to bring her out of her neutrality and draw her into the war; how part of that army was to join some Swedish forces at Stralsund; how two hundred and twenty thousand Austrians, with a hundred thousand Russians, were to operate in Italy and on the Rhine; how fifty thousand Russians and as many English were to land at Naples, and how a total force of five hundred thousand men was to attack the French from different sides.
A member of the Hofkriegsrath from Vienna had come to Kutuzov the day before with proposals and demands for him to join up with the army of the Archduke Ferdinand and Mack, and Kutuzov, not considering this junction advisable, meant, among other arguments in support of his view, to show the Austrian general the wretched state in which the troops arrived from Russia.
On Kutuzov's staff, among his fellow officers and in the army generally, Prince Andrew had, as he had had in Petersburg society, two quite opposite reputations.
The nervous irritation aroused by the appearance of Mack, the news of his defeat, and the thought of what lay before the Russian army found vent in anger at Zherkov's untimely jest.
* "Forty thousand men massacred and the army of our allies destroyed, and you find that a cause for jesting!"
Austrian troops that had escaped capture at Ulm and had joined Kutuzov at Braunau now separated from the Russian army, and Kutuzov was left with only his own weak and exhausted forces.
On the twenty-eighth of October Kutuzov with his army crossed to the left bank of the Danube and took up a position for the first time with the river between himself and the main body of the French.
From politeness and to start conversation, they asked him a few questions about the army and the battle, and then the talk went off into merry jests and gossip.
Near Hetzelsdorf Prince Andrew struck the high road along which the Russian army was moving with great haste and in the greatest disorder.
Very sinister reports of the position of the army reached him as he went along, and the appearance of the troops in their disorderly flight confirmed these rumors.
But to forestall the French with his whole army was impossible.
Another emissary rode to the Russian line to announce the peace negotiations and to offer the Russian army the three days' truce.
The gloom that enveloped the army was filled with their groans, which seemed to melt into one with the darkness of the night.
Next day the French army did not renew their attack, and the remnant of Bagration's detachment was reunited to Kutuzov's army.
Anna Mikhaylovna, practical woman that she was, had even managed by favor with army authorities to secure advantageous means of communication for herself and her son.
On the twelfth of November, Kutuzov's active army, in camp before Olmutz, was preparing to be reviewed next day by the two Emperors--the Russian and the Austrian.
Without boasting, you know, I may say that I know the Army Orders by heart and know the Regulations as well as I do the Lord's Prayer.
In spite of Prince Andrew's disagreeable, ironical tone, in spite of the contempt with which Rostov, from his fighting army point of view, regarded all these little adjutants on the staff of whom the newcomer was evidently one, Rostov felt confused, blushed, and became silent.
The two Emperors, the Russian with his heir the Tsarevich, and the Austrian with the Archduke, inspected the allied army of eighty thousand men.
The whole army was extended in three lines: the cavalry in front, behind it the artillery, and behind that again the infantry.
And at that moment, though the day was still, a light gust of wind blowing over the army slightly stirred the streamers on the lances and the unfolded standards fluttered against their staffs.
It looked as if by that slight motion the army itself was expressing its joy at the approach of the Emperors.
It seemed as though not the trumpeters were playing, but as if the army itself, rejoicing at the Emperors' approach, had naturally burst into music.
The day after the review, Boris, in his best uniform and with his comrade Berg's best wishes for success, rode to Olmutz to see Bolkonski, wishing to profit by his friendliness and obtain for himself the best post he could--preferably that of adjutant to some important personage, a position in the army which seemed to him most attractive.
Next day, the army began its campaign, and up to the very battle of Austerlitz, Boris was unable to see either Prince Andrew or Dolgorukov again and remained for a while with the Ismaylov regiment.
He brought with him into our rearguard all the freshness of atmosphere of the French army, which was so alien to us.
And he was not the only man to experience that feeling during those memorable days preceding the battle of Austerlitz: nine tenths of the men in the Russian army were then in love, though less ecstatically, with their Tsar and the glory of the Russian arms.
And concern for her well-being, like he showed at the Peak when she hadn't known him from any other army-type.
I won't subject you to Elise and her insubordinate rabble, but you'll remain with the other army seniors here as my advisors.
Here's a friendly warning: there are a lot of secrets up here you normal army-types don't need to know.
She'd never interacted with the army-types before, but she found herself liking them, if they were all like Guardian and Brady.
Elise gave him an irritated look, reminding him again of how little respected the army-types were.
A look of incredulity crossed her features, and he doubted any army-type had ever threatened one of the elite class member forces.
The Twelfth Army is on its way back from Europe.
He's an army-type and has strict instructions, so don't be offended if he's less than conversational.
"I think that before discussing these questions," Pierre continued, "we should ask the Emperor--most respectfully ask His Majesty--to let us know the number of our troops and the position in which our army and our forces now are, and then..."
And by this visit of the Emperor to Moscow the strength of the Russian army was trebled.
He left in order not to obstruct the commander-in-chief's undivided control of the army, and hoping that more decisive action would then be taken, but the command of the armies became still more confused and enfeebled.
