and he’s trying to get Cruso away from the missiles, so he rides to guide him to the way


that will take him outside the lake and away from the area of hitting


And because the weather is very windy and rainy, Thomas can’t cancel the order through the walkie talkie, and the observation soldiers try to inform that there is a strange movement in the sea like the submarine


and they think that a German submarine is coming to attack them, But in fact, it is Cruso’s head


the rope is raised more to catch the submarine
