I have been wracking my brains for a quote I need from Birdsong.
It is about how a mains face is blown off by a bomb, and at first they think the man's survived until they rotate him and see his melted face.
I can't find this quote anywhere, if you know it it would be so helpful for my coursework!

I know you posted this months ago.. but could it be..
"He prepared words of encouragement as he came alongside. BUt as the strecher bearers lifted him, they turned his body and Stephen saw that his head was cut away in section, so that the smooth skin and the handsome face remained on one side, but o the other side were the ragged edges of skull from which the remains of his brain were dropping onto his scorched uniform."
is that it?
