    in close confines

    Hi

    He'd killed many heavily armed, expertly trained men in close confines that night.

    How should I understand "in close confines"?

    I'm not a teacher.

    Hi GUEST2008,

    in close confines = in narrow borders = in brief limits


    Regards,

    V.

    Within a small, enclosed or confined area.

    Hi

    So he killed these guys within some small area or maybe they were trained in close confines. I think the former.

    Thanks
