Henry states “If we are mark'd to die, we are enough to do our country loss… I pray thee, wish not one man more… I would not lose so great an honor as one man more”. The price Henry must pay for this battle, a number of men that must die is enough already. He cares for every man in his army and believes that even one more life from his army is too much behalf of everyone being worth something. Henry composes his men as though they are not discriminated against based on their past and have a high degree of importance despite the various differences between them. In the army, social status does not matter.
He while he was a sort of Stateman, he was more Kennedy than Roosevelt but without the high level administrative wit either of them had. That never hid, they that had it all, he was a made man, and he did not need to report to anyone, the kind a man a person could admire. I grew up in a low-income area where you always thought about making it big and while Lorenzo de’ Medici was not from a poor family by a long shot that is that kind of man you wanted to be. You would see men
In return, they may be notorious or famous in this case, all at the risk of a tiny mistake. Lincoln was brave for having the courage to seek success after everyone turned him down. This allowed him to lead the US to success during the Civil War. Lincoln was turned down in 1832, 1834, 1838, 1843 and 1858 before being elected as president. Lincoln 's was faced with the challenge of reuniting the shattered halves of the two unions during his time as commander in chief.
Morale was a major factor as to why Gettysburg was a turning point. The Battle of Gettysburg was a game changer in the Civil War because of it’s geography, morale, and losses. Geography because it was fought in the North. Morale because Robert E. Lee didnt want to fight anymore. Losses because the South lost more soldiers than the north.
Private Doss brought a new weapon to the table that the enemy had never seen before. That weapon was an unwavering love and desire to truly help those in need, one of the greatest qualities there can be in a leader. “Please Lord. Help me get one more.” (Gibson) A true leader is one that is not selfish and only cares what is good for them. A true leader is one that does whatever it takes.
It is simply waiting out there for you to grasp it, and all you have to do is reach for it” (pg 57). Christopher McCandless is a remarkable man who sincerely believed in the transcendentalist view of having a simplified life, mirroring Henry David Thoreau’s ideals. Christopher broke out of his life of conformity to accomplish something he was immensely passionate about. Lots of people admire him for his braveness and independence, and others think he went nuts. When it comes down to it, Christopher McCandless ended his life the way he wanted.
All wars are fought, won or lost, by the success of the hierarchy within the military. A chain of command, as seen in this classic film conveys that dependence on leadership, in war or in life, does not denote negativity. Through the graphic realism of the settings and strong, dependable leadership portrayals of the actors, Saving Private Ryan, ensures that audiences are aware that war necessitates a dependence on leadership, but does not detract from the brutal reality that all wars facilitate loss of life. “Which means that for the men engaged in combat, the actual experience of war is often nothing more than a battle to the death, independent of right and wrong” as stated by Caldwell. Leadership provides the structure necessary, in which to overcome the fundamental chaos of war and enable the success of missions, which knowingly may lead to the death of those involved.
Alexander Graham Bell, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, world war I and II veterans, Vietnam war veterans, and soldiers currently serving today. These men are remembered today, not because of what they wrote, or said, but because of what they did, what they actively did. Sure, Abraham Lincoln gave some mighty fine speeches, but let’s be honest here, we all know Abraham Lincoln, for his great beard, his amazing top hat, and his actively getting us out of the civil war. These were acts, not words. Today I will not be arguing that the pen is mightier than the sword, but rather, that the sword is mightier than then pen.
This is a very strong point that the Soldier makes. But he is only looking at himself and Ryan as a resource that is worth a certain amount to the Army. If you look at each individual as a resource than the decision to save Ryan is very difficult because it would cost a lot of resources to find a resource and then take that resource out of battle in the end. This ideology leads to treating Soldiers not as humans and it is a slippery slope of unethical or moral
