|Atli (or Attila) the Hun --Artist Unknown|
Excerpt #2 Sigurd let his visor fall back into place with a resounding clank. The son of Sigmund was still shaking, but he knew there was no turning back.

A wave of strength and resolution surged throughout his entire body. Sigurd threw back his head, and he held his sword high in the air. A bloodcurdling war cry escaped from his throat, the signal his commanding officers were awaiting, for the war cry was the cue the attack had begun.
