    Blinded by a dust storm

    Blinded by a dust storm, they fell into disorder.


    I can't understand this sentence though I know every word.

    Could you explain it please?

    The first phrase behaves like the one starting with 'Being', discussed in anther thread - https://www.usingenglish.com/forum/a...erb-being.html.

    [Because they were/had been] blinded by a dust storm, they fell into disorder.
    or
    [Being] blinded by a dust storm, they fell into disorder.
