War and Peace
by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace Volume 4, Part 3, Chapter 14 Summary
- Meanwhile, the French soldiers yell at the prisoners to line up. Someone important rides by, inspecting the troops.
- When Pierre looks for Platon, he sees soldiers talking near him. Pierre immediately writes Platon off and turns away.
- A shot rings out behind him. Good-bye, Platon, we guess.
- Pierre and the rest of the prisoners studiously ignore the spot where Platon was shot.
