1973 / SLAUGHTER
On a chilled March night at the edge of a small Japanese village twenty miles north of Tokyo, twenty-four men - faces darkened by black shoe polish and mud, each man carrying an automatic rifle, one handgun, two grenaded - crouched behind trees, bushes and cars, watching six killer dogs trot gracefully toward three wooden two-story houses painted blue and yellow.
Silently, the lean Dobermans glided toward the three houses, moving across the grass like quiet black shadows, their shiny black coats reflecting handfuls of yellow moon-light. With their small heads and open mouths, jagged teeth wet with spit, the dogs looked like four-legged reptiles, vicious giant lizards slithering closer for the kill.
They knew only killing. Since they were becoming more and more high-strung and therefore dangerous to handle, the man in charge of the raid had ordered his dogs to be killed tonight as well. Either during the slaughter or after.
Leaning against a tree, hidden by the darkness, Colonel Leo Dimitri Tolstoy, United States Army, watched his dogs scamper up the stairs and sniff around the front porch and door of each house, lizardlike heads darting left and right, then back and forth. Despite the chill, the battle-hardened Colonel Tolstoy wore a short-sleeved, faded green fatigue shirt, his sun-browned arms bare to their hard biceps. Two grenades were clipped to the left front pocket of the green shirt, dangling like obscene black fruits.
The United States was not at war with Japan. The raid was Colonel Tolstoy’s idea, a shrewd move, as he saw it, because the men he was about to kill would most certainly kill him as soon as they found out what he had done. He had no intention of giving them the opportunity for revenge, because the men sleeping inside the three houses were men to be feared.
They were Samurai....
Sand knew who was attacking. He didn’t know why, but he knew who.
And he had never discussed this with the Samurai because he had not known for sure that the attack would ever come. He had been warned to be aware, to be alert, to always remember the existence of Colonel Leo Dimitri Tolstoy. But this-!!
Sand never expected this!
He felt the warm blood under his bare feet as he stepped over the bodies and moved down the hallway. Other raiders would be here soon. But it didn’t matter. He was a Samurai, he would die fighting as a Samurai, as a warrior, as he had been trained to do. He would kill as many of Colonel Tolstoy’s men as he could and if he were fortunate, he might kill Tolstoy himself. That would be a blessing, that would be a nice way to die...
