I’ll have to speak to father about this.” (Pg 111) Bruno clearly fails to recognize the meaning of the events and what role his father played. Sadly there was no one to help Bruno overcome this particular barrier, however if father had been more open and honest his death may have not occurred. “What exactly was the difference? He wondered to himself.
All is Not Fair in Love of War The novel Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut questions how war is perceived by mankind. Vonnegut in his first chapter describes the process of him deciding to use his experience of the Dresden Firebombing in World War II to be the main point of his dark satire. World War Two is one of many bloody conflicts and is certainly not going to be the last.

The world would be an evil place ruled by fascism and militarism. These countries did some of the worst things imaginable, they exterminated people because of their religion/race, raised the white flag but actually ambushed enemies, they tortured people, ate prisoners, and forced women into sexual slavery. This generation and their president had to drop the atomic bomb, but ending the war with the people who committed these atrocities is no brainer. The men and women of the greatest generation were expected to go to war or help on the home front wherever they could. They rationed and consumed less to help with the war effort.
