He was worried the regiment was going to lose so out of rage he mustered enough courage to aide in the victory instead of running to safety and being left out like the last time. He finally felt like a hero, somebody important just as he wanted to be.
Naturally, there is severe damage and the remains of the boat are scattered out into the middle of the ocean. With no way to make repairs, the three men are left stranded with few resources. After a few days in this situation, The other two men get desperate, fighting each other to the death for the right to eat each other.

Rainsford chose to be hunted and lasted the time limit of three days of hunted by the General, and killed the General when he had his chance. At the beginning of the story, the flaw of Rainsford is he falling overboard and ending up swimming for his life. After Rainsford reached too far for his pipe, he was sent into a life or death situation while his “cry was pinched off short as the blood-warm waters of the Caribbean Sea dosed over his head. He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face and the salt water in his open mouth made him gag and strangle” (Connell 2). As the readers read by this section of the story, their eyes would open wide in response to the situation that Rainsford was left in.

Louie and his crew had just crashed their B-24D Army Air Force bomber into the Pacific Ocean and the only crew members that had survived were Louie, Phil, and Mac. These three men had made their way onto the inflatable life raft where they had suffered from a lack of food and water, heat stroke, poor hygiene, and just overall terrible conditions. But, to keep everyone’s minds sharp Louie suggested singing songs and to keep talking to each other about anything that would keep their minds off of the current situation that they were in.

Obviously these aren’t ideal recovery conditions for a man who’s had back surgery a few months prior. Jack served in the pacific, and as he served he began to realize how pointless the war seemed. He said that the pacific theater was “just God damned hot stinking corners of small islands in a group of in a group of islands in a part of the ocean we all hope never to see again” (100). One night, Jack became a hero. Since the PT boats that didn’t fire torpedoes also didn’t have radar, it was difficult for them to find each other.
He found some of his countrymen and asked what was going on and they told him they are being carried to the white people’s country to work for them.
