Following the desperate events at the front, Chapter 5 creates a quiet mood of camaraderie among  the group and especially between Paul and Kat. As the chapter opens, Tjaden rigs up a lid from a  boot-polish tin, a wire, and a candle in order to kill lice. While they are relaxing, the group discusses  a rumor that Himmelstoss has arrived at the front, transferred because he was too hard on recruits.  Tjaden ponders his revenge. In quiet moments, they discuss what they would do if peace occurred. Kropp says he would get  drunk; Kat would go home to his wife and children; and Westhus would find a woman and a bed and  then become a soldier with the Prussians, reasoning that, as a soldier, he would at least have food, a  bed, clean underwear, clothes, and pubs in the evening. Tjaden ponders what he will do to  Himmelstoss, and Detering worries about the harvest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
