A Victoria-described leader is held to higher standard of morality with exponentially more access to necessary informative sources. In comparison, required obedience to authority and inaccessibility of knowledge gain soldiers the defence of what is invincible ignorance. Soldiers were unable to access the same information as a leader. As a result, the true meaning of a conflict was left in a moral limbo for soldiers. However, if a man found proof of unjust activity during conflict, then it was recommended he stop fighting.
Hundert describes his act as a “soldier following his captain’s orders.” Hundert reflects, “What had happened was that instead of enforcing my own code of morals, I had allowed Sedgewick Bell to sweep me summarily into his” (p. 172). As Hundert fails to live up to his own code of morals, he failed to shape Sedgwick Bell into something better. . He states, “I did not know at the time what an act of corruption I had committed, although what is especially chilling to me is that I believe that Sedgewick Bell, even at the age of thirteen, did” (p. 172). As another compromise, Hundert asked a question he knew only Deepak Mehta would know.
He thought that decisive charges from different directions would always result in the opponents’ demise. His view of military strategy was simple: gain the upper hand by a surprise offensive, and increase this by catching the enemy in a pincer movement. It was a win at all costs strategy which, unfortunately for Custer and his men, did not consider anything but winning. Custer told Major Reno that he would be right behind them but instead he went back on his own order and tried to outflank the Sioux as he: underestimated them and thought they would flee. Instead they outmanoeuvred and surrounded him.
I think that king tut was murdered because people say that when they found his body there were some kind of liquid in his body that could 've been poisoned.Another way is he had a blood clock in the back of his head right by his neck.Other theories that people believed is whoever might of done it did it to take over and run egypt.And whoever was planning this must 've been planning it for years.This is why i think he was murdered. I also think that king tut was murderd because the broken bones that he had looked very bad.One of the fractors that he had was a broken knee and it’s very hard and takes a lot of strength and energy to brake yor knee.And a blood clock in his head means he couldoved been hit or smacked hard to the floor.And if someone poisend him then it would haved have to been one of his servents .Or someone lower than him that served
The soldier hates the war, he says “I died in hell”, this implies that the honorable death that the young men believed in, was actually an inglorious death for an empty cause. All the soldiers received in return for their lives was a gilded name on a memorial tablet, where people probably wont even see it. He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed". The words ‘suffered’ and ‘anguish ' shows the soldiers’ emotional feeling towards the war, it shows how angry and sad he feels about what is happening and that he has been through a lot. The squire stays safe at home and did not go to war; there is an implication that he was fully aware of the danger, “I suffered anguish that he’s never guessed”, this shows that the Squire has never felt anything like this before but he knows that the soldiers feel it.
Forgive, not because they deserve forgives, but because you deserve peace. It’s not easy to stop blaming someone’s fault, especially for someone who do wrong to us. In the book The Sunflower written by Simon Wiesenthal, a survivor of the Holocaust during World War II, he described his conflict with Karl, a dying Nazi soldier who killed many innocent Jews and begging for forgiveness for his outrageous crime at the end of his life. At the end of this sad and tragic episode, Simon did not response to Karl’s request directly; instead he left us a tough question: “What should you have done?” Based on what Karl had done during World War II and his repentance, each person might have their own point of view about where should we draw the line of forgiveness.
When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships. I realize also the significance of the duty for a soldier because if Druse didn’t kill his father, he can be considered as a criminal. 9. What do you think the author’s messages are concerning “duty”, “family” and “war”? in this short story, the author would like to denounce firstly the war and the conditions of leaving that known soldiers.
While the poem glorifies and honours the members of the Light Brigade and considers them heroes for dying for their nation, it also subtly suggests the bad decision making of the British Government, for taking part in a clear condemned battle against the Russian Empire, where hundreds of lives were lost. The failure of the battle appears throughout the text with the repetition of the term “Death” and by the use of different literary devices which remind the soldiers ' impossible situation to act according to their moral, as they had to obey the Government’s
I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too. Claudius killed Hamlets father with the easiest but the cleverest way. He poisoned Hamlets father himself, while Hamlets father was sleeping. Then Claudius told everyone that he died of a sudden heart attack or some disease nobody knew
While the poem glorifies and honours the members of the Light Brigade and considers them heroes for dying for their nation, it also subtly suggests the bad decision making of the British Government, for taking part in a clear condemned battle against the Russian Empire, where hundreds of lives were lost. The failure of the battle appears throughout the text with the repetition of the term “Death” and by the use of different literary devices which remind the soldiers' impossible situation to act according to their moral, as they had to obey the Government’s decisions. From my point of view, Tennyson describes the magnitude of the consequences resulting from the bad management of the British Government by using the figures of the six hundred men, who despite being obedient and brave, lost their lives protecting their nation like heroes. Like Wilfred Owen says in his poem “Dulce et Decorum est/ Pro patria mori”, it is a great and wonderful honour to fight and die in a battle to if you are defending your country. Therefore, the charge is presented as a bungled operation order by the use of morbid language and literary devices that accentuate the abruptness of the orders given to the Light
The Klu-Klux-Klan was a white supremacist group that opposed “Reconstruction” and equal rights for freed slaves (Hook Exercise). They, to my standards, really would do whatever it takes to stop Reconstruction, even if it meant killing innocent people for that. John W. Stephens, a former senator from Caswell, was brutally murdered by none other than the Klu-Klux-Klan in a Grand Jury room (Doc.A Par.1). John W. Stephens was stabbed five to six times then even hanged on a hook in the same jury room. As Albion Toruage quoted, “ Another brave, honest Republican citizen has met his fate at the hands of these fiends.” Then Abram Colby, a former slave who was elected to the Georgia State Legislature during Reconstruction,(Doc.B,Para.
The Battle of Lexington and Concord was a bad battle and the first battle of the Revolutionary War, This is also the reason it is called the shot heard around the world. It was called this because the first shot that was fired started the war and it also was a symbolic moment for both sides. The battle started and was a very bloody fight in which many men died. This showed both sides that they were up against an almost equal force and it would be extremely hard to beat the enemy in this war. In the end of this battle 8 miniet men lay dead on the ground and about 50 British soldiers died at the same time.
The Battle begins with General Burnside planning to attack the Union army but ended up failing because of a miscommunication at the Rappahannock River between general Burnside and general Halleck. During the dilemma for the Union, the Confederacy was able to occupy a strong position at Marye’s Heights. After the Union crossed, Burnside ordered his left wing to attack Lee’s right. General Meade of the Union then was able to temporarily break Jackson’s line but failed to send more troops in to capitalize on it. In return the Union army was defeated by Jackson.
I do this with the more earnestness because no one is more aware than myself of my inability for the duties of my position” (277). To sum up, Document C shows that General Lee abandoned his faith in himself and asked to be replaced; this is significant because Generals Lee’s dampened mood affects his and his soldiers fighting during the war making them unfocused and
The same could be said for soldiers in the unit. It all comes from a culture created at the top where an oft-tyrannical leader can be unpredictable except in his unwillingness to listen to new ideas. Ultimately, I don’t know if Longstreet could have convinced Lee to withdraw. At this point of the war, Lee was convinced he could and needed to end the war in Gettysburg.
