33. MUTINY! ~  31.10.25
Leaving Lieutenant Carnot and Captain D'Arnot to fight off the attack of Moorish tribesmen, Tarzan reaches Fort Bek-El-Abir, which he finds apparently deserted. Some of the Moors are close at his heels as he scales the wall.  There is no sign of life within the fort. Reaching the parapet Tarzan finds that the Moors are preparing to storm the fort. He seizes a machine gun and  with its sweeping fire, breaks up the attack of the tribesmen. Making a quick investigation of the fort, the Ape Man finds the prone body of a French officer.

"My men mutinied!" Captain Du Fours whispers through weak lips." After many years of service in the Legion, my men mutinied! And I... I drove my soldiers into the barracks and locked them in," Captain DuFours said. "Then I came back to the parapet, and a tribesman's bullet found me." His voice trailed off.

Aroused by the renewed firing the imprisoned Legionnaires strain like wild beasts to break the bars that keep them from liberty. Tarzan opens the doors that imprison the soldiers.

"Food! Food!. . ." the Legionnaires shout.

"I will take you to food," the Ape Man tells them. "It is on the desert and you will have to fight for it."

Back in the shell hole, Captain D'Arnot and Lieutenant Carnot realize that they won't be able to keep the Moors at bay much longer.

"Sound the call for attack!" Tarzan commands.
