Example text

Obgleich es nicht geschont wurde (mehrmals neugebildet und komplettiert, freilich selten eingesetzt oder aber in ruhige Abschnitte geschickt wie jene alten Truppen, jene alten Prätorianergarden oder jene Elitekorps, die man speziell für die mörderischsten Aktionen in Reserve hält), niemals erlitt das Regiment in der Folgezeit, außer bei einem schlecht 50 vorbereiteten Angriff, der es an einem einzigen Vormittag nahezu drei Viertel seiner Offiziere und gut tausend Mann kostete, so schwere Verluste wie in jenen ersten vier Wochen, in denen es mehr Tote auf dem Terrain zurückließ als in jedem der vier Jahre, die der Krieg dauerte.

Wie die analphabetischen jungen Bauern, die sie befehligten, die jungen Hirten oder 43 jungen Bergbewohner mit den geschorenen Schülerschädeln, von Kindheit an gewohnt, gegen die Elemente und die anspruchsvolle Erde zu kämpfen, waren sie meist abgehärtete Männer von schlichtem Gemüt, die ihrem Mut vertrauten und deren Erfahrung, was die ältesten betraf, im Laufe ferner Expeditionen erworben, wo die Schwäche der eingesetzten Truppen die Anwendung rudimentärer Taktiken begünstigte, ihnen eine unerschütterliche Sicherheit verliehen hatte, gegründet auf das Studium der Klassiker des Krieges, zudem bestätigt durch die seit vierzig Jahren an der Wandtafel oder in Kasinodiskussionen wiederholten Analysen.

Die Kugel hatte das Käppi weggerissen, und im blutverklebten Haar war noch die Spur des Kamms zu sehen, der an diesem Morgen sorgfältig den von zwei Ondulierungen eingerahmten Mittelscheitel gezogen hatte.
