Synopsis
[After a bombing, the Howlers] find themselves in a hospital ward, presuming that they've been rescued by the Red Cross. Fury [...] comes to the conclusion (jokingly) that they must be in heaven. The joke fades and apparent confirmation of his heavenly reward approaches in the form of an angel in white [...].
The reality of the situation is that they've awoken in a Nazi hospital ward, and their nurse is a woman named Irma. Fury realizes this [just as], Nazi soldiers enter the ward.
The rest of the story involves the Howlers escape from the Nazis, with Irma's assistance.
