Dead Man's Corner is the 9th chapter in Brothers in Arms: Road to Hill 30. This is the first time where scripted death happened with Risner.
With the help of Sgt. Risner and his Stuart tank, Baker's squad must vanguard the push down the road to St. Come-du-Mont...
Baker and his men along with the tank support are ready to move forward through the road which filled with German defenders. The Germans came prepared with MG 42, Pak 36 Anti-Tank Gun and Panzerfaust to slow the attackers. Regardless, Baker is prepared against the enemy.
Slowly but surely, Baker's squad and the tank eliminated any German resistance until they reach a blockade set up by the Germans. Risner's tank destroy the blockade, clearing the way for the paratroopers. The Americans soon faced heavy resistance along the road but was swiftly dealt with.
They reach another blockade which the tank destroyed it. As the tank reach the corner junction near St. Come du Mont, it was hit by a Panzerfaust round fired by the Germans. The tank was out of commission which force George to rises up from the tank and defending himself. Baker and his men are under fire from the Germans and took cover. Risner meanwhile ran out of ammo for his Thompson and use the 'cursed' pistol to defend himself. However, he was shot multiple times by the Germans and killed in the process.
Baker's squad soon kill the remaining Germans and meet up with Mac who arrived at the scene. He reported that Corrion and Desola are back with the 506th and prepare to regroup with Baker's squad. Mac also console Baker for his friend's loss and told Baker of tomorrow's attack on the outskirts of St. Come.

Col. Antal and Randy Pitchford, oblivious to the camera, consider a makeshift memorial left at Dead Man's Corner on the 60th anniversary.
The temporary memorial, faded and blurred by the elements, honors a 101st Airborne paratrooper who was killed in action here on D+1.
The German K98 Rifle - Col. Antal BriefingThis is the German Mauser K98 Rifle
The Carabiner 1898 Kurtz, as it was called in the German Army, was the backbone of the German Infantry and probably the best bolt action rifle ever made.
The K98 weighs 8 pounds, 9 ounces and is 43.6 inches long.
It has an internal box magazine that holds five rounds of 8mm Mauser ammunition, or caliber 7.92mm. The rounds are fed into the internal magazine either individually or with the use of a handy stripper clip.
In the hands of a well trained marksman, this rifle could hit targets beyond 400 yards.
In Brothers in Arms, you will often fight several teams of enemy soldiers armed with K98s, protecting an MG42 Machine Gun, the center of the German infantry squad.
Difference in the PS2 Version
- Red, Allen, and Garnett all used an M1A1 Thompson and is labelled as an Assault Team.
- Allen is registered as the team leader of Hartsock's team.
- Mac uses an M1 Garand.
