The first attack by Ares' troops was repulsed, and the Amazons sent a messenger to fetch Wonder Woman on Earth. At this point Diana didn't have her superhuman powers anymore - yet she took command of the Amazons in desperate battle.
Ares then sent the Beast-Men against the Amazons. Their unearthly appearance paralyzed even the indomitable women warriors - until Diana noted that her mentor, a blind human nicknamed I-Ching, seemed completely unaffected. Realizing that not seeing the Beast-Men meant not being affected by them, Diana ordered a blind charge with the Amazons staying behind their shields. Although the battle was difficult and left many Amazons dead, as they were greatly outnumbered by the Beast-Men, it allowed the women to break the ranks of the Beast-Men and ultimately send them into a chaotic retreat. The day was won.
