He runs a few steps more while the blood spouts from his neck like a fountain.” (Remarque 115) That was caused by a fire that lifted 100 yards. The soldiers had no escape from the fire because they were down in the trenches. That is a reason why trenches were not good at times. Overall the trench warfare was great for defense. Sometimes the trenches cause more deaths then they protected.
2 December 2012 The Battle of Fallujah The Battle of Fallujah changed the way the U.S. Marine Corps trains and fights today. This was the biggest battle in urban terrain since Hue City, Vietnam in 1968. The whole fight over the city was broken down into four phases. The first phases came with the fall of Saddam Hussein in April of 2003. The second phase is the one known by many of us, when four American contractors were killed and their bodies mutilated.
The villages and trees had disappeared, they could not even see any ruins, for the waves has demolished and swallowed up the inhabitants, the homes and the plantations. The few people who had managed to escape to high ground before the waves struck, were reluctant to return to their homes. Most of their friends and families had been killed, and they feared that further eruptions might lead to another terrible wave. For many years the coasts of the islands remained scarcely
Source one provides evidence of the tremendous damage caused by the bombing of Darwin. “In the first attack, which began just before 10.00 am, heavy bombers pattern-bombed the harbour and town; dive bombers escorted by Zero fighters then attacked shipping in the harbour, the military and civil aerodromes, and the hospital at Berrimah. The attack ceased after about 40 minutes. The second attack, which began an hour later, involved high altitude bombing of the Royal Australian Air Force base at Parap which lasted for 20–25 minutes. The two raids killed at least 243 people and between 300 and 400 were wounded.
Hundreds of Japanese fighter planes attacked the American naval base stationed at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The attack only lasted about two hours but the damage was catastrophic for our United States Navy. “The Japanese managed to destroy nearly twenty American naval vessels, including eight
Ocean waves peaked at 100 feet, the height of 10-story buildings. Waves 30 feet high battered the New England coast, destroying 200 homes. Nine people died, including the six-man crew of a swordfish boat from Gloucester, Massachusetts. (CNN.com) Not only was a book wrote about this event, they later made a movie about too.

D-Day: Up Close and Personal On Tuesday June 6, 1944, General Dwight Eisenhower ordered what is now proven to be the largest amphibious invasion in military history. This full frontal assault involved thousands of American, British, and Canadian forces as they came ashore under heavy enemy resistance on various strategic beaches in the province of Normandy, France. The next day, major fighting was over and the German defensive line was broken, allowing for the penetration of what Adolf Hitler christened “Fortress Europe”, and ultimately a path to Berlin (Durflinger, McAndrew). However, the fact that the Allies incurred an estimated 10,000 casualties due to a direct assault with no cover to speak of is nothing less than heartbreaking (D-Day).
“Apparently the mass of the plastic particles is six times more than the mass of the natural plankton in the area.” This large expanse of ocean has become unhealthy for the animals that feed around the Gyre. “The plastic is found at depths of up to 30 meters. It is literally creating a landmass.” Because not all the plastic’s as it breaks down, and releases large amounts of toxic substances into the water of the Pacific Ocean. Not to mention that the Sea birds and other marine animals mistake these sand like plastics as food, and aren’t able to digest the plastics resulting in a large number of deaths of these animals. We all can contribute in helping the slow the growth of “trash Island” so some call it.
They also had to invade a daunting stretch of beach at Omaha. Lastly, the German defenses and the Atlantic wall proved to be formidable obstacles. Operation Overlord or more commonly known as “D-Day” was the invasion of Normandy, France on June 6, 1944. It was the largest amphibious assault in the history of war with numbers reaching
