He will pass beyond it through those desolate plains, and over the hills beyond them, beyond Bapaume. Far hamlets to the east will know his antics.
And one day surely, in old familiar garb, without court dress, without removing his hat, armed with that flexible cane, he will walk over the faces of the Prussian Guard and, picking up the Kaiser by the collar, with infinite nonchalance in finger and thumb, will place him neatly in a prone position and solemnly sit on his chest.
This is from the novel Tales of War by Lord Dunsany
Far hamlets to the east will know his antics. I do not understand the meaning. It might mean that he (Charlie Chaplin in the film) will go to Kaiser Wilhelm.
I am glad if somebody might give me some advice.
