Which one should I say:

They attacked me unprepared.


I was attacked unprepared.

Do these sentences have any similarities with:

He died young?

Thanks in advance.


They attacked me unprepared

This is a bit ambiguous. Most likely it means

They attacked me, but they were unprepared.

But it could also mean

They attacked me, and I was unprepared for it.

The context will tell you which one is meant.

I was attacked unprepared

This unambiguously means

I was attacked, and I was unprepared for it.
