Collage 596

"Vous n'étes pas ce que vous dites," Davout said again.

You are not what you say.

Pierre and five other "criminals" are led to the edge of a pit to be shot.

"Pierre did not remember how long he walked or where. In a state of total senselessness and torpor, seeing nothing around him, he moved his legs along with the others until they all stopped, and he stopped, too."
