Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 5, Section 13 Summary

  • The Germans love these English officers because they are exactly what Germans expect English officers to be like.
  • The English have known about the new group of American prisoners joining them for long enough to spruce up the camp and make it look nice for the new guys. (Seriously.)
  • They welcome the Americans with open arms and keeping talking about "Jerry" being on the run.
  • Billy doesn't know who "Jerry" is. In case you're wondering, it's an English slang term for Germans.
