Though this quote may sound contradicting to the belief that Lee was fighting for his homeland, it actually supports that where he came from was his cause for going into battle. There is a famous saying that goes, “A house is not a home”, which can be interpreted as a person’s home is where their family is and their memories are, not their address. So when Lee says he is fighting for the “children and the kin”, he is still fighting for his homeland, because to him, his home is not Virginia. His home is where the people he loves are. And I admire Shaara for pointing this out, because in my mind, no man would go into war to protect four walls and a fireplace.
Although he has no way of knowing anything about the man’s life, O’Brien attempts to humanize the soldier by creating a story for him, and memorializing it in order to place meaning on the man’s life. It is interesting to note that parts of O’Brien’s description of the soldier’s life reflect his own feelings. For example, while speaking about the man’s recruitment to the army, O’Brien tells, “…secretly…[the war] frightened him. He was not a fighter.” (119), and that “he could not picture himself doing…brave things. He hoped in his heart that he would never be tested”.
The leader I chose to think about was General George Patton. I feel the quality’s that made him stand out to me was, his ability to inspire his soldiers to keep fighting, if not fight harder in the worst scenarios of war. He probably assumed that if he would show any doubt or fear that the mission would not succeed, than his men fail, so this was not an option.
This presents a fallacious appeal to authority. The viewer automatically assumes the U.S. military is linked with this program because silhouette logo portrays one soldier helping another, and the image represents the military’s value of “no man left behind.” The advertisement’s use of ethos is meant to be effective because the audience perceives the United States military as a large, authoritative force. The viewers respect the military’s values and its seal of approval because the armed forces fight and protect the audience. Additionally, the connection to the military gives the illusion that the armed forces support the Wounded Warrior Project; however, the United States military is an expert during combat and has no authority for the treatment of seriously injured veterans. The military’s deceptive authority on the treatment of wounded veterans carries little evidential weight.
Often times, in acting on serious matters, *the people involved need to be assured that the solution they are pursuing is best. Without reassurance, people may lose sight of their purpose. * *Thomas Paine wrote several pieces providing such encouragement for Patriots in the American Revolution . “Crisis No. 1” was a piece that he wrote directed at *American soldiers in attempts *to use rhetorical analysis to keep their hearts in the ongoing battle with Great Britain.
Braveheart is an epic film from 1995. It tells the story of the true events of William Wallace, a Scottish warrior who led his country in the first war of Scottish independence from England. Though the film has been remarked as inaccurate, William Wallace is not a fictional character. Throughout the film William motivates his conspirators and army men with wise sayings that eventually inspire them to act to culminate in these heroics. In this persuasive speech, Wallace speaks in a style that intends to move his audience to action, and as a result of his speech, he was able to rally the troops to fight.
For instance, MacArthur’s promise of glory is shown when he says, “Duty, Honor, Country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.” MacArthur’s use of pathos shows the veneration and honor that will come to the students who follow those three words and the phrase also instills a higher sense of calling from the General. Furthermore, MacArthur also inspires a fear of failing when he claims, “Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory; that if you lose, the nation will be destroyed; that the very obsession of your public service must be: Duty, Honor, Country.” The effect of the previous statement leaves a warning and creates a lasting impression emotionally on the Cadets that they must win and cannot accept defeat. With MacArthur’s use of pathos, he creates emotional responses that create a higher prestige and a desire to succeed in
Mythologies of creation (stories that exaggerate history to inspire national pride) are a trademark of nation-building, and it follows that something as central to the construction of a nation as the military would subscribe to the general view of the American public that our history is something to take pride in. The line “minutemen from the start” conjures images of brave patriots, rather than the disjointed and poorly trained militias of the American Revolution (at least in the beginning), which is obviously not the model for the modern U.S. Army. Nonetheless, Americans are proud of the Revolutionary War (and the other historical events mentioned in The Army Song), and by using imagery from that time period The Army Song draws parallels between the Army then and the Army now, although they are not the same by any means. This is the crux of
This is about symbolism in the story The Drummer Boy Of Shiloh(Historical Fiction) by Ray Bradbury. The story is about the drummer boy named Joby. He believes that he has no one and he’s not important to the army. He meets the general and he tells him that he is important. Theres many symbols in the story.
In my opinion when James Cameron zooms on Colonel Quaritchs steps it is showing that he is a hard military man that will finish the job he has been assigned to do, and no one is to get in his way or else.Again when they show his face they have used a close up. This is to show that he will do anything in his will to keep you in line, and he isn't scared to put you in your place. This is showing Abuse of power because you feel like you are below him and what he says, goes. After reflecting Avatar, i now see that we humans need to think about what our actions are actually doing. Our actions not only hurt people but they can also affect the nature and all wildlife out
