Collage 499

I re-read this passage a few times, trying to remember why I wrote the numbers "11-2". The only thing I can come up with is that at 11am General Kutuzov received news that fleches occupied by the French had been re-taken and that Prince Bagration had been wounded. A few paragraphs later, at 2pm, the French attacks ceased. Why I would think those numbers are interesting/meaningful is a mystery. -- Lola
