The impact of the bomb was so strong that it left imprints of individuals, such as the lovers on the sides of buildings and homes. From a historical context, the recurring symbol of the lovers throughout the novel underlies the worry and fear of the Cold War. On a deeper level it foreshadows a hidden possibility of a greater force or danger to come. For example, on page 27 of chapter six we see the
Throughout history, there have been many events where it had a significant impact on the nation, society, or an individual. During the early 1900s, when World War I occurred, in the United States the theme of work of literatures changed due to the impact of the event. Specifically, World War 1 had its mark on the works of Ernest Hemingway. World War I was a prominent event that had a major effect on American literature itself and authors. Due to different chain of events, such as alliances within foreign countries and the death of Franz Ferdinand, it sparked the global war between the allies, including Britain, France, and Russia, and the central powers including Germany and Austria- Hungary.
The Cold War was a period characterised by the pervasive ideological conflict between communism and capitalism and the global uncertainty this produced. It stemmed from the horror of WWII, in particular the Holocaust as well as the devastation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the wake of the atomic bomb. The sheer scale and inhumanity of these atrocities spurred a global shift in thinking, forcing people to reevaluate their understanding of a world in which such horrors could readily occur. For many this in turn led to a sense of moral confusion and universal meaninglessness, exemplified in the resurgence of philosophies like existentialism, nihilism and absurdism. In other words, metanarratives like religion and science had been unable to prevent the horrors of WWII, or create a better society afterwards, and these philosophies appealed to the sense of failure and confusion that this induced, justifying the chaos by declaring it meaningless.
Instead, the narrator uses a nonlinear chronological narrative structure that truly reflects the indelible and traumatic impact of war. For instance, in the embedded narrative, Billy Pilgrim is the protagonist who has the ability to haphazardly travel through travel. Here, the narrator uses time-travel as a technique to present the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that Billy suffers from after his time in World War Two. As the implied author, the narrator intentionally uses time travel as a literal manifestation of the traumatic effect of war on an individual where the time travel is triggered by Billy’s war memories. This is another main thematic concern in Slaughterhouse Five that is simultaneously conveyed through the narrator’s blurring of boundaries between reality and fiction.

‘’Truman was to blame for the outbreak of the cold war. How far do you agree with this statement?’’ The Cold War was a period of great tension between the United States of America and the Soviet Union, which were the two ‘superpowers’ that resulted from World War II. Although many believe that the ‘ideology clash’ between these two countries was the cause of the outbreak of the Cold War, many factors were involved.
