Hi. Please have a look at the circled part.
Is the しばたたかせる the same as しばたたく here (because the latter is already a transitive verb)?
Thank you.

Thank you, Chris.
But why the writer chose しばたたかせ when he could have used しばたたき? Is there any difference between しばたたかせる and しばたたく in this context?

I think they are the same. I'm more familiar with しばたたかせる, or rather, I've ever only seen/heard it, but the search result in a corpus shows that both are equally used in the same meaning.

Thank you both.
Wouldn't that be the same as here?
Yes, I remember this thread. I was just not sure if it is the same as this case in op.
