War: Night Before Landing Summary

Nick, now in the military, is on a warship headed for the Bay of Biscay in France. He and Leon go to tease a fellow soldier, Galinski, about a girl who does not like him. In the bunk above Galinski's is a "round" man named Carper who apparently has been drunk for two weeks straight. After talking briefly with Galinski and Carper, Nick and Leon decide to get bottles of wine and talk in a lifeboat. Nick wonders aloud if war will scare him and admonishes him not to think like that, mentioning that the reason Carper drinks so much is because he got fired from another job for being cowardly. They then talk about women and Nick says he is engaged to a girl back home; Leon is single.
