The thought that Brian always had was that he was “going to die”. The plane went into a glide a very fast glide, suddenly there were no lakes.

They party and play around while together but when the time comes they’re always ready to do what needs to be done. At the end of 1942, his team is sent to complete a bombing run over Japan. The trip wasn’t easy as the plane barely makes it back. Louie’s life in the army wasn’t going to be easy and chapter 8 proves that true. The men who he gained close relationships with and highly respected him were involved in a plane crash over Pearl Harbor.
Louie and his squadron had been fighting the war for some time and their initial hope was fading, but they felt their plane was strong like its name and this belief helped renew their hope. While fueling up on a rest island the Japanese bombed the island ruining Super Man. “On May 24, Louie, Phil, and the other Super Man veterans were transferred to the 42nd squadron” (Hillenbrand 117). Losing Super Man made Louie and his fellow squadron’s hope to disappear. Without hope, Louie becomes depressed.
Forrest Gump alone in one ambush had to save about 8 of his fellow soldiers because of injuries. Since there were a lot of ambushes and fights, it’s easy to see how easily the death rate could rise. Also a lot of people received the medal of Honour for fighting for the United stated in the Vietnam war, and so did Forrest. I personally think they did a great job in making these scenes, because it really shows a few things that were really part of the war and although they did let the war appear as not so serious, I do not think that this is really a bad thing because the movie’s purpose isn’t to show how serious the war was, it just a small part compared to the whole

After Finny fell out of the tree during his time in the Super Suicide Society of the Summer Session he would never be able to go to war, no matter how badly he wanted to: “‘I’ve been writing to the Army and the Navy and the Marines and the Canadians and everybody else all winter… They all gave me the same answer after they saw the medical report on me. The answer was no soap. We can’t use you. I also wrote the Coast Guard, the Merchant Marine, I wrote to General de Gaulle personally, I also wrote Chiang Kai- shek, and I was about ready to write somebody in Russia’” (103).
Any time the enemy saw the L-4 Cub airplane, they knew a barrage of artillery was sure to follow. From a German Prisoner of War: “When the Cub flies over, all things cease. All we move is our eyeballs” (Varangis 2017). This weakened the morale for many German soldiers and gave allied soldiers hope. Although the decisive point of the operation wasn’t artillery related, it was related to key terrain.
In paragraph seven the text states, “During one test flight, Feng lost control of his airplane (not an unusual occurrence), which plunged into his workshop, setting it ablaze.” This quote explains that Feng had to relocate his workshop, since he accidentally burned his workshop down during his test flight. Despite the challenges Feng Ru faced, he still remained a positive and a courageous person. According to paragraph two, it states, “A bolt holding the propeller to the shaft snapped, sending Feng tumbling to earth, bruised but otherwise unharmed.” This quote supports that Feng was not frightened by his first test flight, but was positive because he tried to fly airplanes over and over again, instead of giving up. Therefore, Feng Ru was the first Chinese Aviation Pioneer that brought aviation to

Every man on both sides had an objective and a duty to themselves and their country. Geography played a major role in the battle because Iwo Jima was very small but the Japanese had a defense system already prepared for war, even though it did not last, their defense system still managed to take several lives. The Japanese pilots that shot down Americans helped the defensive system and also helped with the camouflage and knowing the island of where to hide and how to be prepared. The Americans knowing the island is volcanic, surrounded by water and also not being that large in size, helped with their objective of taking over for the use of emergency landing ports.
