Rostov waved his cap above his head like the German and cried laughing, "Und vivat die ganze Welt!"
"Vivat!" shouted the Poles, ecstatically, breaking their ranks and pressing against one another to see him.
As soon as the aide-de-camp had said this, the old mustached officer, with happy face and sparkling eyes, raised his saber, shouted "Vivat!" and, commanding the uhlans to follow him, spurred his horse and galloped into the river.
And as soon as they had got out, in their soaked and streaming clothes, they shouted "Vivat!" and looked ecstatically at the spot where Napoleon had been but where he no longer was and at that moment considered themselves happy.
