Well, you don't really need

boots back home.

We could trade.

- I've got...

- No! My mother gave me those.

- You could lend them to me?

- No.

You'll be home a lot sooner than us.

Orderly. Orderly!

They don't come. They never come.

We'll get someone.

- It'll be different at home.

- When you return...

- ...We'll be together.

- We'll come tomorrow.

- I'll come tomorrow.

- Thank you. Thank you.

I'll be back.

Make sure you get my watch.

We will.

You think I don't care about Franz.

Of course I care.

If I could save his leg or life, I'd

walk over barbed wire. You know that.

But where he's going,

he won't need his boots.

He won't need anything.

And my boots hurt. They really hurt.

Why should some damn orderly

get his boots,

and not one of his friends.

He's right, Paul.

I know.

Very good, Kemmerich.

Very good, Kemmerich.

They've amputated my leg.

Could be worse.

Wegler lost his right arm,

which is very much worse.

Besides, you're going home.

Do you think so?

Of course.

Do you think so?

Once you get over the operation.

I don't think so.

Don't talk nonsense.

I wanted to be a forester once.

You will.

You can do anything.

If you find my watch, send it home.

You'll go to a convalescent home.

Maybe the one in Klosterberg.

Remember how we hiked up there?

Remember the poplars?

The stream full of fish?

Franz, Franz... When I come back,

we go up to the mountains again.

You can name all the trees for me.

Tell me all about them.

Franz, nothing will change.

We'd be together again.



Give... Mller... my... boots.

Doctor? Doctor?

Where's the doctor? Doctor!


Where's the doctor?


Doctor! Quickly,

Franz Kemmerich is dying.

Which one's that?

Bed 36, amputated leg.

How should I know that?

I've amputated five legs today.
