The Battle For Doldrey (6) (ドルドレイ攻略戦(6) Dorudorei kōryakusen (6)?) is the 28th chapter of the Berserk manga series, written and illustrated by Kentaro Miura.


The Chuder soldiers are at a loss for what to do. Guts informs them that the Hawks have won the battle, and Griffith orders the killing of the remnants of the enemy forces. Despite Gennon's orders to stay and fight, his troops run away. In the commotion, he is knocked off his horse, and when he comes to his senses, he notices Griffith sitting on his own horse, looking down on him.


Griffith stabs Gennon's eye.

Gennon seems both overjoyed and terrified at seeing Griffith. On the one hand, they are on opposite sides of the war. On the other, Gennon hopes that the (non-existent) mutual attraction they feel for each other will convince Griffith to spare him. Gennon tells Griffith that he's desired to see him again after the night they shared, but Griffith's lack of response prompts Gennon to ask if Griffith resents him. Griffith replies that he doesn't, explaining that their night was nothing more than a means to an end: the accomplishment of his dream. Griffith adds insult to injury by explaining that the money Gennon gave him to ensure the survival of his men made everything up to this point possible. As Gennon cries out in rage over being used, Griffith kills him by stabbing his sword through his eye. The White Hawk somberly leaves an old chapter of his life behind.


Guts picks Casca up to see Griffith.

Inside Doldrey, the Hawks are celebrating their victory and hunting the last remnants of Chuder's army within its walls. Casca is still suffering the pain of her arrow wound, but declines help from passing soldiers. Eventually, she is found by Guts, still wielding the enormous cleaver. He helps her up, and together they look out onto the battlefield, where Griffith is being lauded and cheered for by the Band of the Hawk.

Casca tells Guts that seeing Griffith being celebrated like this makes her feel very distant from him. In response to this, Guts picks her up in his arms to bring her to Griffith's side. Before leaving the castle, Guts glances back suspiciously at the oversized sword. He decides to make nothing of it, and he leaves with Casca.

On the cliff, the horseman and sword-thrower, Nosferatu Zodd, contemplates the upcoming event called the Eclipse, before he turns and rides into the distance, away from Doldrey.
