With great difficulty he managed to get to his horse, and shouting continually he moved on.
Only when a man was killed or wounded did he frown and turn away from the sight, shouting angrily at the men who, as is always the case, hesitated about lifting the injured or dead.
At each ascent or descent of the road the crowds were yet denser and the din of shouting more incessant.
Rostov spurred his horse, called to Sergeant Fedchenko and two other hussars, told them to follow him, and trotted downhill in the direction from which the shouting came.
Black figures flitted about before the fire, and through the incessant crackling of the flames talking and shouting could be heard.
From the host's room came the sounds of a child crying, the despairing sobs of a woman, and the hoarse angry shouting of Ferapontov.
The town seemed very still; but now and then he could hear the beating of a drum or the shouting of some soldier.
Cossacks, hussars, and ragged Russian prisoners, who had come running from both sides of the road, were shouting something loudly and incoherently.
Their un- Russian shouting at their horses which were straining uphill with the carts, and their calls to one another, could be clearly heard.
