Must Cost 'Em a Fortune in Bridges
A member of Chuck's platoon panics and runs for it, right into Charlie's anti-escape defense perimiter. As he's crossing a wooden suspension bridge, someone leaps out of hiding with a flame-thrower. Not only does this take out the bridge, but the poor guy's flaming corpse plummets into two sets of waterfalls below.
But the real victim here is the poor guy with the flame-thrower. He has to stay in that bush, day in and day out, just hoping that one of the POWs will try to escape across that bridge. It must be what he lives for.
