Definition
about to occur
  • Each time the fall of a city like Naples, Rome or Florence seemed imminent, Major — de Coverley would pack his musette bag, commandeer an airplane and a pilot, and have himself flown away, accomplishing all this without uttering a word, by the sheer force of his solemn, domineering visage and the peremptory gestures of his wrinkled finger.
