Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 3, Section 20

By Kurt Vonnegut

Chapter 3, Section 20

  • Billy is marching with the other American prisoners of war, with his hands on top of his head.
  • He keeps running into Weary, who is also crying.
  • Weary is crying from pain because his feet ache so badly from the wooden clogs the German commander made him wear.
  • At each fork in the road, more American soldiers join the line of prisoners of war.
