  • This scene is when O'Brien kills a man with a grenade. He did not do it on purpose, only to survive. The aftermath of this scene is detailed in the following quote: "He lay face-up in the center of the trail, a slim, dead, almost dainty young man. "He had bony legs, a narrow waist, long shapely fingers. His chest was sunken and poorly muscled -- a scholar, maybe. His wrists were the wrists of a child."
