Upon the breaking out of the revolutions of 1848, we find BEM in the thick of the conflict.
BEM roused the soldiers again to the defence, and drove them to their work with abuse.
The bread of exile which Dante found so bitter, was sweet compared with that which BEM, for long years, was forced to taste.
BEM had succeeded in escaping secretly from Vienna and coming to Hungary.
BEM's horse was killed under him, and he was compelled to retreat.
But Grgei disliked BEM for the very reason for which Kossuth approved of him.
He joined BEM in the last ditch at Komorn, aiding not a little in the stout defence of that place.
BEM told him that he must either hold it, or be shot; and it was held.
As a soldier BEM was remarkable for his excellent handling of artillery and the rapidity of his marches.
Dembinski, who was now in BEM's army, disobeyed his orders, and BEM was defeated.
