The plot focuses on a group of soldiers who are charged with cowardice. No man is perfect, but war magnifies qualities such as honour and deceit, and this film illustrates this phenomena in a very clean, proper way. Paths Of Glory does not show actual combat very much, unlike Full Metal Jacket. Full Metal Jacket is a study of what becomes of a soldier at war. Set in the Vietnam War, it begins with a focus on the training of a platoon of U.S. marines and continues to follow the service of Private Joker in his experiences in Vietnam as he goes about his service.
It's best not to antagonise the people you are trying to help. This pushed the people they were trying to help away and made the VC/NV more determined to win. The failure to understand their tenacity and determination was important. Ultimately they were able to withstand and accept far higher losses than the US was able to take. By the end of the war Vietnam was incredibly unpopular in the US and had cost the lives of 70,000 men.
In result of this, this cause loads of deaths. To conclude the actions from the officers were a very important factor in causing a high death toll in World War One. This was mainly down to their naivety, ineptness and how out of touch they really were. There loss of seeing things for how they really were, was another reason why there army lost so many of their men. In some cases it seemed the army were being sent in blind, as the officers refused to change their old fashioned
Although the Tet Offensive was unsuccessful for the North Vietnamese Army, they showed that United States had seriously underestimated them and their capabilities. The United States boasted prematurely that the war was nearing its end and the North Vietnamese were all but defeated. However those statements were discredited by the media who brought the Tet Offensive into the homes of millions of Americans which resulted in the highest disapproval of any war amongst American citizens in the history of the United States. In addition the Tet Offensive also showed that the North Vietnamese were willing to fight until the last man and that regardless of how many casualties they suffered, they would fight the United States until the end.

Ryan's three brothers have all been killed in action and the Army wants him returned to his family. The paratroops of the 82nd Airborne are scattered far and wide though, and finding Ryan proves far from easy. Hard-bitten Rangers (Hanks, Tom Sizemore, Edward Burns, Barry Pepper, Adam Goldberg, Vin Diesel, Giovanni Ribisi) are joined by an interpreter, Corporal Upham (Jeremy Davies). Upham has no combat experience, and is held in contempt by the veteran soldiers on the mission. Several of Miller's men are killed in incidents, but they do eventually locate Ryan -- who refuses to leave his unit!
There were nearly 4 million dead, wounded, captured or missing. Reasons for this was the inefficient ammunition supplies. The army was severely inequiped, out of the six and the half million men mobilised only 4.6 were armed with rifles. In reality soldiers were waiting for their comrades to die in order to fight for their homeland. These losses sparked off political unrest and left the floodgates open for criticism on the incompetence of the Tsar’s government ministers.
The movie The Fighting Seabees, was used from its release in 1944 to recruit men into the newly formed construction fields of the Navy, as well as show the American people how persistence and fortitude in the face of adversity would win the war. Although primarily made to recruit men into the Navy Civil Engineer Corps and Seabees, this film was also used as propaganda ("Seabee historical foundation," 2011). The audience is shown the true evil of the enemy when you watch the industrious hardworking men of the Donovan Construction company being attacked by the Japanese troops. As non-military men, these construction men were non-combatants and as such were unarmed. American moviegoers watched in horror as the Japanese overran the construction site, destroyed the fuel tanks being built and killed many civilians as well as the Seamen who were protecting them.
There were other factors that Germany thought that were very unfair such as their tiny army and the amount of land that was taken from them. Their army had to be reduced to 100,000 men and also they could not have any military aircraft, submarines or armored cars. This made them very vulnerable to other countries and other countries took valuable resources from Germany making their future seem even worse. All the countries who had been involved in the war had different aims in the treaty these included France who at the time president was Clemenceau who was seen as the harshest of the big three. France in the war had suffered the most so it was only right that they wanted Germany to be crippled and Clemenceau with the support of France had the aim of crushing them.
He was unhappy as he felt that being a guardsman “was not worth it”. Relating to Adam’s Equity Theory, he felt that the monetary outcome was not equivalent to the hardship he had to go through, as compared to a combat medic, driver, or even a normal infantry trooper. The dissatisfaction is further explained by Herzberg’s “Motivation-hygiene theory”. The poor hygiene factors created lots of displeasement and unhappiness in this soldier. 3.
