Sabaton: Resist And Bite is a story in a song. The story of the Chasseurs Ardennais, whose emblem is the wild boar. A small Belgian unit of soldiers who were supposed to defend the borders and hold their ground along the K-W Line in May 1940. When the German armies, which included Rommel’s Ghost Division, approached the unit, they were supposed to retreat but due to communication failure the order never reached them. Instead they honored their original orders, which were to defend the border at all cost. They fought so bravely and on such a large front, that they tricked the axis into believing that they were facing a force much larger than 40 rifles strong. When finally they were captured and their captors asked them -”Where are the others?” they simply laughed and answered. -”There are no others, we are all!”. The song gets its title from their motto Resiste Et Mords, in English, Resist and Bite. Following are the lyrics of the famed song: War is coming swiftly The border is closing in We’re a company of soldiers We’re 40 rifles strong All alone Stand alone Ardenner ground is burning And Rommel is at hand As the Blitzkrieg’s pushing harder The war is all around! All around Hold your ground! Fight for 18 days of battles No odds are on our side Few will fight for all Until the bullets are gone We! We will resist and bite! Bite hard, cause we are all in sight We! We take up arms and fight! Fight hard, resist and do what’s right! No matter our fighting Their numbers will still count We’re outgunned and few in numbers We’re doomed to flag or fail We fought hard Held our guard But when captured by the Axis And forced to tell the truth We will tell them with a smile We will surprise them with the laugh We are all We were all We were told to hold the border And that is what we did Honoured by our orders In despite of our foe Gloria fortis miles The Wehrmacht’s closing in Adversor et admorsus The Boar against the Eagle Gloria fortis miles The Wehrmacht’s closing in Adversor et admorsus The Boar against the Eagle
