Macbeth sounds like quite the super soldier in the battle against the enemy. The captain reports that Macbeth carved through enemy soldiers until he reached the traitor Macdonwald and cut him open.


"For brave Macbeth—well he deserves that name— Disdaining fortune, with his brandished steel, Which smoked with bloody execution, Like valor’s minion carved out his passage Till he faced the slave; Which ne'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him, Till he unseamed him from the nave to th' chops, And fixed his head upon our battlements."
