Chapter 7: Hector offers to fight another single combat battle, and Ajax accepts.  They fight until nightfall.  During the night, the Greeks build a defensive wall and steal a few hours of sleep before dawn.
Chapter 8: Zeus decrees that the gods will no longer interfere in the war.  The truce does not last past dawn, and the Trojan army gains position on the Greeks.  Hector leads, but he cannot break the Greek defense before night.  The Greeks do not sleep, and keep watch all night.
