Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 4, Section 15 Summary

  • Billy doesn't want to jump from the train car to the ground, so the guards help him down.
  • As the train has crossed through Germany and dropped off its prisoners at different prisons, the number of cars has gotten smaller and smaller. Now the entire train consists of one engine and three boxcars.
  • One of the boxcars is the car with the bunk beds and food for the guards.
