Still completely naked as they took to their guns and with no time to even put their clothes on, the French soldiers proceeded to mow down the attackers with utmost precision, the Italian soldiers not even knowing enough to divert their path as they kept running straight into the slaughter. The author puts the casualty count for that particular confrontation at over 200 Italians and 0 Frenchmen!
