The next year, the Soviets took this forest back and said that the invading Nazi’s killed the officers. But this could not be true because when the Nazis found these bodies they were already decayed The officers were all abused by the USSR, they may have been killed 2 different ways. They were either killed by a gun are stabbed, but it is more likely that they were shot behind the neck. There are two different guns that could have been used, which were the Tokarev SVT-40 or the M1940 50mm (50-RM 40). There are only 2 options because these were the guns the Soviets used in 1940.

For instance, “Hitler committed suicide in his Berlin bunker on April 30th, 1945” (Axelrod 2). Adolf Hitler was a Nazi politician, and some believe he alone is to be blamed for the Holocaust, even though the Nuremberg Trials proved many others were guilty as well. When millions of people are killed, and one person that helped gets away, it is hard to be content. In addition to Hitler, “Goring was sentenced to death by hanging but two hours before his execution the “last renaissance man” committed suicide, taking a cyanide capsule he had managed to smuggle into the cell” (Catherwood and Horvitz 3). He had been tried and sentenced to death at Nuremberg, but instead of taking his punishment he rebelled.
Next, in a Boy at War the navy was repairing the ships, and according to pearlharboroahu.com all of the ships except the USS Arizona, the USS Utah and the USS Oklahoma were repaired for battle in WWII.

Such as, Beowulf requested that his armor be sent to his country if he were to die in his battle with Grendel. For example, “if death does take me, send the hammered Mail of armor to Higlac.” (186-187). By doing this he shows how prideful he is to belong to Denmark. Even though heroes today do not send their armor back to their leaders, modern heroes are still prideful in their homeland. For instance, when Beryle was captured by Germany in 1944, he never gave up information about America after being tortured.
Robert Walch, a West Coast book columnist, states “Barry 's account of how the influenza spread through military camps virtually unchecked and then spread into the civilian population reads like a novel”. Walch did not like the fact that he just wrote out the facts and did not give any detail.“It is the anecdotes and personal stories of those touched by the influenza that flesh out the story and turn this lengthy study into an unexpected page turner”(Walch). Even though we have heard many stories about the 1918 Influenza Pandemic, John Barry has told us many things that we may have not known. Howard Markel of the Washington Post said “Although we have several other superb histories of the 1918 influenza pandemic, John M. Barry presents a fascinating look at how the epidemic spread and how physicians and researchers rallied to mobilize against a global health crisis”. Karen Brudney, a medical doctor at the Columbia University in New York says “Barry only focuses on what was relevant at that
The director of this documentary, Michael Moore interviewed a man named John Nichols, regarding gun control and possession. Nichols openly supported gun possession, going as far as informing Moore that he sleeps with a .44 magnum under his pillow. As he compared the gun to a sword, Nichol’s said, “I use the pen, because the pen is mightier than the sword. But you must always keep a sword handy for when the pen fails” (Moore 2002). Nichols claimed that the gun for only for emergencies but in reality, this concept enclosed Nichols in a bubble, a way of escaping into a fantasy world where guns do more good than harm.
This quote had a connection to him personally because he actually fought in the war for his new country. Due to Isaac experiencing first hand the effects of the war he was able to put the true horrors down in paper such as ¨The deep thunder of a drown-out shout reached them (pg. 107)¨ which describes the tragedies in war zones. “After all, the essential point in running a risk is that the returns justify it (pg. 136)” this connects to the US risking losing everything by throwing a helping hand to the allied powers.
However, it was also the place where Amir mistreated Hassan after the rape. Amir pelted Hassan with pomegranates, which symbolized that their friendship was falling apart, and Hassan just accepts it. In the end, when Amir visited the pomegranate tree, he finds it nearly dead to show their friendship has almost fallen apart completely. However, the tree was not dead yet because there was still a chance for Amir to redeem himself. A third symbol could be the monster in the lake from Hassan’s dream.
Although Jem and Scout have their theories and alleged stories about Boo, he ends up saving their lives in a plot twist. However, in the act, he killed Bob Ewell. Due to the fact that he was only trying to protect Jem and Scout, Sheriff Heck Tate decides not to report Boo in the incident, saying Ewell fell on his own knife. Scout understands exactly why he does this. When discussing why he wouldn’t be put on trial, Scout says: “‘Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?’” (Lee
Wyatt Smith was literally a hulk, he actually was made stronger by radiation from a nuclear explosion in Taiwan, during the Fourth World War(2103-2109). They were watching the feet of the invaders from behind the office desk they were hiding in, when Wyatt got mad. “WYATT DE-STROY!” “Oh, no. Grab this, Slim,” Brosef handed Slim Jim a .45 pistol and started shooting at Communist troops, but was soon downed. Wyatt wasn’t, though.
Bessel provides just some examples of how Nazi’s and the Reich will justify execution of their own. Few examples of this are Nazi regime that would retreat if catch would be executed, looters could and would be shoot (Bessel 53). According to Bessel the very last issue of the newspaper Stargarder Tageblatt the headline read “On Adolf-Hitler-Square the Hanged are Swinging in the Wind” (Bessel 53). The Nazi’s had turned death into a normal house hold thing, this is just proof of it. These bodies were that of corpses of “cowards” (Bessel 53).
Art Buchwald was a marine who had served in world war II. Many people didn’t believe that he was a marine because he didn’t look or act like one. The text states “He joined Marine corps when was seventeen after persuaded a street drunk to forge his father 's signature.” This shows how he really didn 't want to become a Marine and live his dreams regardless of what people said. During his time in the war Buchwald didn’t start off the best and the text states “He was in charge of loading ammunition to the Marine corps. On Parris island, while loading a large bomb onto a Corsair he had hit the wrong lever and dropped it onto the tarmac sending his buddies scattering, convinced they were about to be blown up.” He didn’t give up, and was
