Wulfgar stepped back out of its deadly range, and Drizzt managed to duck under the blow, but the drow shuddered when he saw the axe blade take a fair-sized chunk out of the stone wall.
Вульфгар отскочил, а эльф ловко пригнулся. Однако Дзирт невольно вздрогнул, увидев, с какой легкостью лезвие топора отсекло от стены большой кусок гранита.

He was overcome with frenzy and he began hitting the old woman on the head with all his force, but at every blow of the axe the laughter and whispering from the bedroom grew louder and the old woman was simply shaking with mirth.
Бешенство одолело его: изо всей силы начал он бить старуху по голове, но с каждым ударом топора смех и шепот из спальни раздавались все сильнее и слышнее, а старушонка так вся и колыхалась от хохота.

And the community was in general the master of the territory it occupied, it had authority everywhere its axe, its scythe and its wooden plough went.
А община и вовсе была господином занятой ею территории, она распоряжалась всюду, куда ее топор, коса и соха ходили.

It was a wild chaos where axe and sword rose and fell, while Englishman, Norman, and Italian staggered and reeled on a deck which was cumbered with bodies and slippery with blood.
Воцарился дикий хаос, в котором топоры и мечи поднимались и опускались, а англичане, нормандцы и итальянцы скользили и спотыкались, сражаясь на палубе, заваленной трупами и ослизлой от крови.

His sensations that moment were terribly like the moment when he had stood over the old woman with the axe in his hand and felt that "he must not lose another minute."
Эта минута была ужасно похожа, в его ощущении, на ту, когда он стоял за старухой, уже высвободив из петли топор, и почувствовал, что уже "ни мгновения нельзя было терять более".
