One thing that the Japanese did with the Chinese Soldiers was that they would call them cowards before either mercilessly beating them to death, or beheading them. They would rape the women from the age of 8 to older than 70. If they found anyone with their family they would make members of the family do horrible things to other family members, just to tear the family apart before killing them. Organization was used, as groups of Japanese soldiers would gather and go on mass killing sprees. Polarization was not used, because all of the Japanese already hated the Chinese, and they were already separated.
Okonkwo thinks that the Christians have ruined their clans because the clans found a new and accurate teaching, they began to doubt their own religion and the Igbo society was no longer acted like one. The death of Okonkwo at the end was unpredictable because throughout the novel, Chinua Achebe described him as a strong warrior who feared of nothing besides failure and weakness. When Okonkwo committed suicide, he also committed the only thing he feared, and that was

Initially, the Fascist Guardia Civil (the Fascist Army) arrive at her village to kill all supporters of the Republicans – hence the killing of Maria’s father. Other supporters of Maria’s father are killed, including Maria’s mother, who was not explicitly supportive of the Republicans, but shouted “Long live my husband”14 before she was shot. The presence of the Guardia Civil provides a more official, detached and “orderly” nature to the initial violence.
