Lieutenant Bertinck

Character Analysis

Bertinck is the company commander and a good guy. He loves his men, allows them to eat extra rations when Ginger the cook tries to withhold them, and he dies saving his company from the attack of enemy flamethrowers. Bertinck is one of the few positive examples of authority figures we see in the novel.
