The Defeated is the twenty-second chapter of The Heroes.
Chapter Summary Edit
Bremer dan Gorst makes his way through The Union encampment, crowded with the wounded. In the background, several enormous wagons, driven by Adeptus Saurizin of the University, struggle through the mess; Bayaz' experiment. Eventually, Gorst finds the man he’s looking for, helping with the injured; General Jalenhorm. Gorst tells the dejected General to follow him to Lord Marshal Kroy.
Jalenhorm briefs the Lord Marshal on the state of his division; two were completely destroyed, and two were badly routed but withdrew. Only the two that were held up on the road remain intact. The only other positive is Corporal Tunny’s regiment, which is now positioned in the woods on the far left flank. Jalenhorm tries to resign, but Kroy will hear none of it. Jalenhorm must spend the second day of the battle dealing with the wounded and imposing discipline in his division, to be ready for action on the third day.
