It was Olson who engaged him, and though unused to the long German rifle and bayonet, he met the bull-rush of the Hun with the cold, cruel precision and science of English bayonet-fighting.
A short point, with just a twist of the bayonet to the left sent the sharp blade over the Englishman's left shoulder.
Plesser carried a rifle with bayonet fixed, that he had snatched from the side of Dietz's corpse.
Thus would I do!" And he lunged his bayonet through von Schoenvorts' chest.
