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.
