The Black Hawk seemed fine to make it back to base but the tail wing’s propeller broke off and the Black Hawk crashed. While the marines were creating a area around the first crash site, A 3rd Black Hawk carrying two snipers got the “GO” to rescue the survivor of the 2nd crash site from the incoming militia. While the two snipers protected the one survivor, they were overcome and died in action, while the survivor who had been injured was taken hostage.

Caroline Santarelli “Book Thief” Prologue Page Number | Literary Element/Technique Being Used in the Passage | Importance of the literary element/technique | 1 | Tone | When the author writes in the beginning of page one, “You are going to die,” he does this to set the overall tone for the whole story, dark, mysterious, and puzzling. | 9 | Personification | The author gives a crashed plane the characteristics of a bird by saying “Smoke was leaking from both its lungs,” because planes are often compared to birds and he wants to show that this “little metallic bird” can no longer take flight due to its bad crash landing. | 12 | Hyperbole | “They were all glued down,” is an exaggeration, the author says this sentence to show how
The setting of this book,which takes place on an island, is a great example of how men are at the mercy of events and cannot control them.

For example, when Dr. Kendricks begins assembling the able-bodied for the twelve-kilometer hike; the priest and the nuns stay behind to take care of the injured. The art in this specific scene is so emotional and incredible. Another scene where the cinematography gave me a positive affect was when Dr. Kendricks was forced into the helicopter, leaving the refugees stranded in the jungle, unprotected against the rebels.
