I recommend this book because it not only gives you a look into the life of a grunt, but also into the most recent war America has been involved in. Danelo’s book is also a very good book with a lot of action that will keep your heart pounding if you are into the book. Although no one will ever understand what kind of brother ship these men have and how to be a leader under immense stress, reading this book will give a better understanding to the reader. If I had to rate Danelo’s “Blood Stripes” on a scale from one to ten based the detail of information given and the deciphering of war into words then I would give this book a perfect score and recommend it to anyone that is looking for a good book to
The most important of the poem was his use of “under an English heaven” even after death the bond with England is strong. This is important because if heaven is an English heaven, it is important to God. Is their a German heaven in this time of Great War? The poem is crucial in demonstrating the blind love the soldiers felt for England. The term “if I should die” was probably a used phrase when the soldiers were writing letters to their loved ones.
But often we had no choice, and became heroes with glory, who were somehow able to conjure up a strength superior to the enemy’s. We no longer fought for Hitler or for National Socialism, or for the Third Reich—or even for our fiancées or mothers or families trapped in bomb ravaged towns. We fought from simple fear, which was our motivation power. The idea of death, even when accepted it, made us howl with powerless rage. We fought for reasons which are perhaps shameful, but are, in the end stronger than any doctrine.
He pointed out that the war was a waste, and they were only there for their country, not for the unnecessary killing and also that fighting and killing is mentally tolling. He captures all of this when he writes one of last lines, “War is brutish, inglorious, and a terrible waste. Combat leaves and indelible mark on those who are focused to endure it. The only redeeming factors were my comrades’ incredible bravery and their devotion to each other. Marine Corps training taught us to kill efficiently and to try to survive.
With firefights, life and death situations, and the mourning of their fellow soldiers, Restrepo showed that when it comes to war, even when we win, everyone still loses. At war, winning is the main goal. Defeating the opposing side and fighting for your country is what soldiers sign up to do. However, even when the soldiers accomplish their goal, and survive the war, a part of them still dies. They will never be the same person they were before they left for war because what they see, experience and feel will change them no matter how tough they are.
Because of all this, the young men of Germany enlist in the army the moment they turn eighteen. They do not stop and consider whether they agree with the reasons for the war being fought but enter blindly into the war with glorified ideas of bravery and patriotism. “But what I would like to know…is whether there would have been a war if the Kaiser had said No…well, if not him alone, then perhaps if twenty or thirty people in the world had said No. (Remarque 203)” Nothing could prepare them for the horrors of the war. Once they enter the war, the soldiers stop and consider the reasons for it being fought and whether it could have been prevented.
The story is powerful and affecting through the negligence of the Nazis. In Night, the people are forced to adapt to this horrific situation by focusing on the needs of survival, resisting faith and religion, and simply becoming accustomed to their surroundings. The simple task of the prisoners in concentration camps is to survive the inhumane acts the Nazis perform. Enduring the torment alone would not relieve them of death, but would facilitate them to live. When first placed in this situation, it would seem almost impossible to be able to live in these circumstances.
The Al-Anon Family Groups have no opinion on outside issues; hence our name ought never be drawn into public controversy. 11. Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, films, and TV. We need guard with special care the anonymity of all AA members. 12.
The War in Iraq Isn’t it interesting how the media portraits the war in Iraq? It’s always the negative points and never the good ones. There is so much disbelief and lying about our military and government that it is disgusting! Everyone believes that this war is pointless and stupid, however it needed to be done to make an example! The United States is the strongest government in the world and the media puts it down so very hard.
Later, masses of human beings started killing themselves through wars and skirmishes and as per Dr David Barlow, in the present millennium, it is very likely that the number one threat to health and well being will not be cancer or heart disease but stress. Prolonged deployment of soldiers in dangerous situations and hostile environment increase stress levels which can either motivate a person or cause tension and frustration, thus having a direct bearing on the performance of duties. 2. Men in the armed forces are often exposed to stress. Almost every day, scenes of injuries, deaths, destruction, isolation and uncertainty of the future confront them.
