Two sergeants major were sitting with them and their campfire blazed brighter than others.
"Well, now he'll come away," Petya thought every moment as he stood by the campfire listening to the talk.
When the officers had emptied and smashed their glasses, Kirsten filled others and, in shirt sleeves and breeches, went glass in hand to the soldiers' bonfires and with his long gray mustache, his white chest showing under his open shirt, he stood in a majestic pose in the light of the campfire, waving his uplifted arm.
Not far from the artillery campfire, in a hut that had been prepared for him, Prince Bagration sat at dinner, talking with some commanding officers who had gathered at his quarters.
Pierre turned back, not to his companions by the campfire, but to an unharnessed cart where there was nobody.
Having ridden in, he dismounted and approached a big blazing campfire, around which sat several men talking noisily.
The wattle wall the men had brought was set up in a semicircle by the Eighth Company as a shelter from the north, propped up by musket rests, and a campfire was built before it.
Ramballe refused food and resting his head on his elbow lay silent beside the campfire, looking at the Russian soldiers with red and vacant eyes.
