Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 2, Section 16 Summary

  • For all his big talk, Weary is no more knowledgeable about war than Billy is.
  • He has fired exactly one shot in the war. That shot leaves a black spot on the ground that shows the German tanks exactly where his gun crew is.
  • The Germans fire, killing every member of the gun crew except Weary.
  • So it goes.
