The importance of them being capture and Rabozzo getting shot made them want to escape. Also when they figure out that they were digging their own grave and the crazies were going to burn the evidence and everything else made the four of them wanting to escape.
As they were hustled through the woods and over the hill, ¨CLANK CLANK,¨ a loud gunshot fired and a body fell to the ground. Morter shells were dropping and planes were overhead.
Eddie and his troop are thrown into bamboo barracks. They were there for days, week, and even months. They had beds made of straw and a clay jug for a toilet.
At night the ¨CRAZIES¨ they called them would craw under the barracks and listen to what they said. They stop eating when Eddie found a hornet in his food. Then they were dumped into a coal mine.
At one point Rabozzo got sick from his shot wound and could barely stand.
