The setting for this story is in Furnace Penitentiary and basically the world itself. The book doesn’t give you an exact time or year it takes place in, but makes references to WWII, and other references to make me believe it takes place in the future, perhaps around 2040. The story covers about a week's time and the setting is important to the story line. The main character is Alex Sawyer and he’s fifteen.
Ender’s Game is an enthralling, award-winning sci-fi novel by Orson Scott Card. The book follows main character Ender Wiggin as he is brought to a battle school and trained to fight against the buggers, an alien race who started a war with Earth. Ender’s Game is a simple read at surface depth but once you dig deeper, it becomes something valuable. How the themes, plot and characters flawlessly interweave makes this an interesting book to read and be taught.

The first trait of a hero we will look at is leadership. All three heroes showed leadership in some way in each of their respective tales. Beowulf showed leadership throughout his story by taking charge against the monster Grendel. Grendel had been terrorizing a distant land, by eating people, for twelve years. The people of the land called upon Beowulf to help.
This is why child soldiers should not be granted amnesty. First and foremost, child soldiers are killers. They are trained for anything. They can kill in an instant and are a danger to society. Innocent people don’t deserve to die at the hands of murderers.
Orson Scott Card is the author of Ender’s Game. Ender, the main character, is taken away from earth and his family to be flown out to battle school in space, for he is smart and represents all the physical and mental traits you would need to be a great commander. He went on to train and eventually be fighting, and killing all the buggers without even knowing it, thinking it was just a simulator. Two themes solidly supported in this book are, things aren’t always going to be fair in life, and make the best of what you have. An example on how they are supported are when the teachers make Ender do unfair things no one else have ever done in the history of battle school.
The atomic bomb led us into a new age of war. What he and his colleagues created could destroy mankind and end life on our planet. Everyone feared dying because of the atomic bomb. That is why Americans practiced duck and cover drills and made shelters for fear of the Soviet Union launching an atomic bomb on us. No one was safe after this invention came to life.
Fear has the power to control one’s life, a lot of decisions that people make are based off of this powerful emotion and the instinctive reaction we often have to it. In the book, the I.F. is scared the Buggers are going to come back and their first response is not to learn more about the buggers, but to continue to fear them and that the logical first response is to attack them and destroy every last Bugger.. They don’t know anything about these aliens, after one attack they decide they must be evil, and create a battle school to train extremely smart children to fight and ultimately demolish the Bugger race and save the earth. The kids in battle school are trained to respond to this fear of the unknown the past generations have created and instilled in them, trained from an extremely young age, to fight against their basic instincts and attack this enemy they’ve grown up hearing is evil and must be destroyed.
Ender 's Game “ A 1v2, how do they expect us to win this one. They’re testing us, but it’s ok, we’ll give them what they want.” Civilians were in danger, the buggers were coming to attack, all hope seemed lost, but then Mazer Rackham defeated the buggers once and for all, or so we thought. The buggers were colonizing again with plans to attack and exterminate the human race, this is where Ender Wiggin comes in, Colonel Graff has been monitoring Ender in his daily life to determine whether he has what it takes to attend battle school and ultimately defeat the entire bugger race. Books, in my opinion, are almost always better than the movie and that stays true for this novel also, the novel has a much greater opportunity to give more details
Also they bombed cities because of factories; you can destroy a factory and rebuild it but when you have no one to rebuild it its shut down for good. The allies wanted to causes issues behind the front lines. They wanted to reduce the number of possible troops for the Germans. They also wanted to kill the family members of the soldiers fighting on the front lines because, if the soldiers weren’t thinking right they couldn’t fight right. Mass bombings of civilians were later outlawed because they were inhumane. The United States recently used this tactic only it was called shock and awe
