The Bridge

The target of Robert Jordan and the Rebels to blow it up and cut off the only route for Fascist's supplies over the mountains. "Robert Jordan watched it become daylight. He loved this hour of the day always and now he watched it: feeling it gray within him, as though he were a part of the slow lightening that comes before the rising of the sun; when solid things darken and space lightens and the lights that have shone in the night go yellow an then fade as the day."
