Scene 13

Scene 13

  • More bombardments; the soldiers look like the walking dead. Tjaden complains that the company cook is a coward and is far behind the lines in order to avoid the shooting.
  • Kat returns with a crust of bread and splits it between the men.
  • A shell scares rats from their burrows, and the men go crazy on them with their spades. After the rodent melee, they all lie down to rest.
  • The bombardment suddenly stops. A whistle blows. The company grabs their rifles, runs out into the trenches, and prepares for the attack.
