The Emperor was wounded, the battle lost.
It was impossible to doubt it now.
Rostov rode in the direction pointed out to him, in which he saw turrets and a church.
What need to hurry? What was he now to say to the Tsar or to Kutuzov, even if they were alive and unwounded? "Take this road, your honor, that way you will be killed at once!" a soldier shouted to him.
" They'd kill you there!" "Oh, what are you talking about?" said another.
