In the Field--The book
Kiowa, one of the soldiers, had gotten lost and stuck under the mud. The whole time, Jimmy Cross, the lieutenant of the platoon, and the others were trying to find Kiowa through the unsanitary 'mud' field.Later, they find a bag with the usual things Kiowa would have carried, a bible and moccasins. Jimmy then blamed himself because the way they set up the camp should have been at higher ground and when Kiowa was living he kept suggesting that but Cross hadn't listened. But if he had Kiowa could have still been alive.
