Motionless Inca

 

 Pizarro rushed at Atahualpa on horseback, but the Inca remained motionless. The Spanish severed the hands or arms of the attendants carrying Atahualpa's litter to force them to drop it so they could reach him.

The Spanish were astounded that the attendants ignored their wounds and used their stumps or remaining hands to hold it up until several were killed and the litter slumped. Atahualpa remained sitting on the litter while a large number of his attendants rushed to place themselves between the litter and the Spanish, deliberately allowing themselves to be killed.

 

While his men were cutting down Atahualpa's attendants, Pizarro rode through them to where a Spanish soldier had pulled the Inca from his litter. While he was doing so, other soldiers also reached the litter and one attempted to kill Atahualpa. Recognizing the value of the Emperor as a hostage, Pizarro blocked the attack and received a sword wound to his hand in consequence

That was thirty years ago. But the dark future which never came still exists for me, and it always will, like the traces of a dream lingering in the morning light."

French Lö'sistance

 


 

The railways were a favorite target of French resistance saboteurs, who soon understood that removing bolts from the tracks was LESS DANGEROUS, and far more EASIER, SILENT, and EFFICIENT than planting explosives.
