"To hell with the handkerchief," said Walter Mitty scornfully. He took one last drag on his cigarette and snapped it away. Then, with that faint, fleeting smile playing about his lips, he faced the firing squad; erect and motionless, proud and disdainful, Walter Mitty the Undefeated, inscrutable to the last.
I'm going to go over and get them out of the bunker myself. If the squad opens up on them, shoot 'em.thompson, hugh, jr.
Richard’s ex-girlfriends were long gone, but their voices followed him all the time and spoke to him, like Muses or Furies . It was like having seven superegos arranged in a firing squad before a single beleaguered id , making sure he didn’t enjoy that last cigarette.neal stephenson

I would have been honoured to play alongside Totti, as he is one of the best players in history. Any club would’ve been happy to have him in their squad.francesco totti
I would give up five players to have Zidane in my squad.Zinedine Zidane
Out of the total number of the persons designated for the execution, fifteen men were led in each case to the brink of the mass grave where they had to kneel down, their faces turned towards the grave. When the men were ready for the execution one of my leaders who was in charge of this execution squad gave the order to shoot. Since they were kneeling on the brink of the mass grave, the victims fell, as a rule, at once into the mass grave.paul blobel
I have always used rather large execution squads, since I declined to use men who were specialists for shots in the neck (Genickschussspezialisten). Each squad shot for about one hour and was then replaced. The persons who still had to be shot were assembled near the place of the execution, and were guarded by members of those squads, which at the moment did not take part in the executions.paul blobel
"I think the climax of the book will be the execution of poor old Edgar Derby," I said. "The irony is so great. A whole city gets burned down, and thousands of people are killed. And then this one American foot soldier is arrested in the ruins for taking a teapot. And he's given a regular trial, and then he's shot by a firing squad."
No one joins the murder squad who hasn't a taste for death .
To liken them to your auld-warld squad, I must needs say comparisons are odd.Robert Burns
