    'carry' is being used with the meaning, to take something away by force
    rush' = a dash toward something in an attempt to attack or capture it

    so, with a dash forward as he attacked, he was able to take (wrest) the citadel away from its occupiers.

    I am still doubtful about the usage of this expression. Does it convey the meaning of "quick victory" or "Precipitous attempt". Grateful for more explanation with example, if possible.

    Hi romel,
    If it was "carried" it's a victory.
