Contradiction in terms in Lo$?

firstly I want to say hallo to all the list members as this is my first 
mail to the DCML.

But back to the subject. Today a friend of mine drew my attention to to 
facts said about Sir Eider McDuck in chapter I and V of "The life and 
times of $crooge McDuck" which seem to be contradictory. In chapter I's 
page ten says Sir Quackly McDuck about Sir Eider McDuck that he lost the 
battle in 946 because his soldiers left him as he had paid them only 30 
copper coins (at least in the German translation by Peter Daibenzeiher). 
But in chapter V, page 10 Quackly and Sir Eider McDuck himself say that he 
lost the battle because he was lacking in arrows (again I can only speak 
of the German translation). Now I ask all of you and especially Mr. Rosa: 
Is this an error in translation, an mistake by Don Rosa or can it be that 
both facts are correct simultaneously?

Best regards,
Maximilian Baumgart.
