Henry, however, is full of words for one of the few times in this book. While on the trench line, he tries to tell a joke. He complains about the generals to his friend. Later, he complains about being marched around only to eventual defeat.The sarcastic man bites off his comments while marching with a simple insult about his own battle prowess"Maybe you think you fought the whole war yesterday, Fleming." This quiets Henry for a time. He knows exactly how much of it he did fight, very little. This keeps him quiet for a while.
