The sergeant has related how Macbeth and Banquo fought the Norwayens and, almost single handedly, thwarted both treason and occupation of Scotland. We learn how Macbeth with "brandished steel" fought his way to the traitor Macdonwald, sliced him open and cut off his head.

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. act 1 sc 2
