|English term or phrase: were caught in a pincer|
|The demoralised survivors were fighting for their lives, and not for conquest, when dawn broke and suddenly, from the south came a body of Roman cavalry at the gallop. The Scots were caught in a pincer and fell back from the camp, fighting for their own survival. They were beaten, but most of them faded away into the woods, vanished and got ready for another day.|
