Winters gives Hall and a trooper called Lorraine -- who mans a Jeep -- permission to join the Easy Company offensive. So add them to the roster.
Easy darts quietly through a decimated cabbage patch, and Winters crawls into a rusted, blown-out vehicle so he can ogle Germans through the windshield but remain relatively protected. Counting three cannons instead of the anticipated four, he bolts to where Compton is hiding and calls over the other men. They hunker down behind spiky bushes only half-full of leaves, having approached the German Battery from behind the trench that the enemy dug to connect its three MG-42s. The plan is this: Petty and the Heartbreakers will divert German fire enough so that Compton, Gonorrhea, and Malarkey can sneak into the trenches and capture the first gun. Donnie and Ranney will hide on another side and divert German fire in that new direction if absolutely necessary; also, they'll deliver the disabling TNT as soon as Gun One is taken. Winters will, uh, "supervise." That's the beauty of being the boss. ["That's damn right." -- Wing Chun]
