An Index to Thomas Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow

Part Three. In the Zone

Episode 21 (518-525)

Here come Enzian, Andreas, and Christian, coming on like Smith, Klein, 'n' French, crashing into the basement room -field-gray kit, newspaper shoes, rolled trouser-cuffs, hands and bare forearms shining with motor oil and gear grease, toting carbines in a show of force.
