Cat's Cradle Chapter 68 Summary

Hoon-yera Mora-toorz

  • It's John's turn to ask a question: who are the Hundred Martyrs to Democracy?
  • Turns out, during World War II, San Lorenzo sent 100 men to fight alongside the United States.
  • Those men were killed when a German submarine sank their boat just outside Bolivar harbor.
  • Now that is hilariously tragic.
