French term or phrase: briser les vagues / briser la vague / brisent la vague vengeresse
À propos de la bataille de Valmy, en 1792, entre la Prusse et la France, pendant la Révolution française:

"Une canonnade, le tonnerre roulant des obus et - sorti de dizaines de milliers de gorges - un cri: 'Vive la nation!'. Les gueux de Dumouriez et Kellermann, aux uniformes bigarrés, à l'armement hétéroclite, brisent en un matin la vague vengeresse de l'Europe coalisée. Sur une crête, derrière les lignes prussiennes, un homme de quarante-cinq ans, voûté, aux tempes grisonnantes, aux yeux fiévreux, ministre du duché de Weimar, observe la scène."

J'ai besoin d'une expression correspondante en portugais. Merci!
