When the pit had been filled up a command was given.
On receiving command of the armies Kutuzov remembered Prince Andrew and sent an order for him to report at headquarters.
To the Polish general he replied to the same effect, informing him that he was already under the command of the German.
The small man waited next to A'Ran's trusted second-in-command, Ne'Rin, whose sister was one of the three before him.
The Planetary Council, his second-in-command, even his sister, had paraded women through his home every time he returned from a battle.
She has the true language-impulse, and shows great fertility of resource in making the words at her command convey her meaning.
Kutuzov made a grimace and sent an order to Dokhturov to take over the command of the first army, and a request to the duke--whom he said he could not spare at such an important moment--to return to him.
"In couples," replied the officer in command in a calm voice.
His second-in-command frowned but escorted the women out.
Are you in command here?
In the orders issued it was stated, not that the Emperor would take command, but only that he would be with the army.
Rostov, without waiting to hear him out, touched his horse, galloped to the front of his squadron, and before he had time to finish giving the word of command, the whole squadron, sharing his feeling, was following him.
He touched his horse, gave the word of command, and immediately, hearing behind him the tramp of the horses of his deployed squadron, rode at full trot downhill toward the dragoons.
After this from amid the ranks of infantry to the right of the battery came the sound of a drum and shouts of command, and from the battery one saw how those ranks of infantry moved forward.
That readiness will not weaken in me, but I and Russia have a right to expect from you all the zeal, firmness, and success which your intellect, military talent, and the courage of the troops you command justify us in expecting.
Then his heroism at Krasnoe is described, where he is reported to have been prepared to accept battle and take personal command, and to have walked about with a birch stick and said:
"Come, Anna Makarovna," Pierre's voice was heard saying, "come here into the middle of the room and at the word of command, 'One, two,' and when I say 'three'... You stand here, and you in my arms--well now!
If the Deity issues a command, expresses His will, as ancient history tells us, the expression of that will is independent of time and is not caused by anything, for the Divinity is not controlled by an event.
To understand in what this dependence consists it is necessary to reinstate another omitted condition of every command proceeding not from the Deity but from a man, which is, that the man who gives the command himself takes part in the event.
Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward obtaining it.
His second-in-command signaled Cora over while Tymkyn disappeared into a portal.
He summoned Landon and gave his second-in-command an urgent message.
Opal, meet me in the command center, A'Ran directed.
He waited for the others to file out of the command center.
Leaving the command center for his quarters, he glanced out the windows as he strode through the compound.
He reached his quarters and opened the link to the command center, pausing before it to see nishani had already entered.
A'Ran's fingers flew over the command panel as he thought of how wise his forefathers had turned out to be.
She responds quickly to the gentle pressure of affection, the pat of approval, the jerk of impatience, the firm motion of command, and to the many other variations of the almost infinite language of the feelings; and she has become so expert in interpreting this unconscious language of the emotions that she is often able to divine our very thoughts.
But the command of the extreme left flank had been assigned to the commander of the Pavlograd regiment in which Rostov was serving, and a misunderstanding arose.
The general in command of the infantry went toward his horse with jerky steps, and having mounted drew himself up very straight and tall and rode to the Pavlograd commander.
The command to form up rang out and the sabers whizzed as they were drawn from their scabbards.
Have Mansr show you to the command center.
The men around her moved silently into every direction, and Mansr lifted his chin in a silent command for her to go.
"You may use the command center this afternoon," he said.
A'Ran crossed his arms, more hesitant to consider his second in command-- and closest friend-- being a traitor now that his sister was involved with Ne'Rin.
He turned both machines off and left his quarters for the command center.
A'Ran left the command center for the practice fields, the area behind the dwelling where his men fought.
Barclay de Tolly tried to command the army in the best way, because he wished to fulfill his duty and earn fame as a great commander.
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.
For God's sake send me somewhere else if only in command of a regiment.
Prince Andrew was in command of a regiment, and the management of that regiment, the welfare of the men and the necessity of receiving and giving orders, engrossed him.
