Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 3, Section 2 Summary
- Two of the Germans are kids and two are old men. They're all wearing hand-me-downs from dead soldiers.
- The fifth is their commander, a tough old soldier who has been wounded four times and then sent back to war.
- The commander's boots are pretty much the only thing he owns; he believes that if you look deeply enough into the polish on them, you can see Adam and Eve.
- Billy looks deep into the German commander's boots and sees Adam and Eve.
