  • War As The Novel
    908 words
    In the words of Otto Von Bismarck, "Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war". Many of the preceding war novels to All Quiet on the Western Front, misrepresented or overlooked the anguish of war, in favor of more resplendent ideals such as glory, honor, or nationalism. The predominant issue of All Quiet on the Western Front is the terrible atrocities of war. The reality that is portrayed in the novel is that there...

  • Things They Carried By Tim
    3,828 words
    Summary of Symbolism Presented by 'Vietnam / War' In reading Philip Caputo's book, "A Rumor of War", I discovered that he strongly presented a similar idea to that of Tim O'Brien in his book, "The Things They Carried". This is the idea that war can not bring or cause good, it only produces varying amounts of evil. Philip Caputo volunteered for the Marines because he was looking for a way to prove himself, and he saw the Marines as an honorable way to do so. He also originally saw the war as glor...
  • Beginning Of The War
    441 words
    I believe that the United States had the right to remain out of World War II, in the beginning of the war. I feel, that whenever possible it is always better to keep peace, than to make war. The rest of the world was at war, and trying to pull the U.S. in. Many people did not want to go to war again, and even 70% of Americans felt the U.S. never should have entered WWI. Eventually I feel that it was necessary for the U.S. to enter the war, and they made the right decision by doing so, but in the...

At the fronts, the troops fought each other from numerous parallel lines of interconnected trenches. Each side laid siege to the other's system of trenches and endeavored to break through their lines. The frustration between the world powers is reflected in Junger's personal account of the war....

' Lepper Leppellier said this extraordinary quote in chapter nine. My interpretation of Lepper's quote was, the war had forced the men to abide by the rule of, "survival of the fittest.

  • Effects Of The War On His Sense
    2,993 words
    Any and all events in one's life may change a person profoundly, but the effect may not always be as expected. For instance, situations of despair may cause feelings of depression and uncertainty to develop in an individual, as would likely be expected. However, those same situations could ultimately lead to a sense of fulfilment or enlightenment. In the novels All Quiet On The Western Front by Erich Remarque, The Wars by Timothy Findely, and A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemmingway, the varying ...
