Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 9, Section 11 Summary

  • Rumfoord decides that he has to include something about Dresden in his book.
  • Why has it been kept secret for so long?, Lily asks.
  • Because the Air Force was worried about bleeding hearts who might think it was the wrong thing to do, answers Rumfoord.
  • Billy then speaks up to tell Rumfoord and Lily that he was there.
