Ever since his father died, he has become a more complex thinker. “There are so many different ways to die, I just need to know which was his.” Oskar does not accept his father’s death until he has finds a reasonable explanation for how it happened. “Every time I left the apartment to go searching for the lock, I became a little lighter, because I was getting closer to Dad. But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg.

Imagery is another way the poets express the sense of internal conflict each character is feeling. As ‘Remains’ is used to portray how the soldier is being exposed to the guilt through shooting a looter, the imagery is used in ‘Remains’ vividly portrays the death of the looter. The word ‘bloody’ in ‘Remains’, from “[the looter’s bloody life in [the soldier’s] bloody hands,” we can successfully infer that he cannot reconcile whether it was an innocent act or not, but because he is unsure, the effects of PTSD has damaged his mental health more than him being aware if the looter was armed or not. Likewise, using the word ‘bloody’ in this context may suggest that the guilt lingers within him. Furthermore, the repetition of the word also shows how the speaker finds it difficult to differentiate between the looter and himself, and that his guilt has blurred the normal process of logic in him showing the internal conflict within the soldier himself.

Articles 159-213 outlined the restrictions. The Army was limited to 100,000 troops with no armored vehicles (See Chart).
Jünger’s tone gradually changed throughout his war years, perhaps because death and destruction constantly surrounded him. After the numerous close calls with death during the Battle of Somme, Jünger “noticed the experience had taken its toll on [his] nerves” (Jünger, p. 88). A year later, Lieutenant Brecht, who Jünger knew as a calm man, even in the face of total war, was killed. His death caused Jünger to think of his own mortality which was disheartening (Jünger, p. 197). The death of his friend Tebbe a few months later also caused Jünger great pain.
“His family relationships suffered” and he felt like he was dying because of he had nobody to turn to. (Arlington) Because of this, negative thoughts piled up and he fell into a depression.

Berlin air lift 1948 After world war II, Germany was dived into for parts. Those four pats were divided among Great Britain, the United States, France, and the Soviet Union each governing their own part. As hatred began to grow between the Soviet Union and the West, Stalin decided to create a separate communist state that included Berlin. To maintain that, Stalin surrounded the western half of Berlin and that caused the Berlin airlift, created by Truman. In 1949, Stalin had removed the blockade.
One way that the Treaty of Versailles treated Germany harshly was the way that it reduced their army. After the date of March 31, 1920, Germany wasn’t allowed to have over one hundred thousand soldiers in its army, (Doc B) Germany would more than likely be furious because what if they were attacked? They felt vulnerable to everyone. France is right next to Germany, and refuse to let them have any military forces at the border. (Doc A) Germany is even more defenseless and they have to obey by what France tells them.
