The Mongols completely destroyed all of Azerbaijan (this was where the Mongols invaded).
This is shown through many occasions in the novel as soldiers of war start objectifying women, stealing syrup from the factory and most terrifying, torturing other human beings, as shown through the firebombing of Dresden. Billy says, “There was a fire-storm out there. Dresden was one big flame. The one flame ate everything organic, everything that would burn” (178). Billy describes Dresden as, “looking like the moon” (179).
This quote shows that Boll weevil is capable of shooting someone (Cecil), therefore making him murderous, similarily to war. Boll weevil and war are similar as they are both devastating. Boll weevil causes devastation to the Redmond family by trying to put them on a ship to Boston (102), trying to frame Fortune for Cecil’s death (121), and trying to steal their freedom papers to give them to Cecil (66). These events would have been devastating to the Redmonds because they would loose all their oppourtunities in Boston, Fortune would be in jail for a wrongfully accused crime, and loosing their slave papers means they would be put back into the horrible conditions and life of

This was the hell that was run by the evil Germans, six millions of Jews sacrificed in it. Night, a terrifying account of the Nazi death camp written by Elie Wiesel, explores the inhumanity among people, the place family plays in terrible circumstances and the place hope plays in the Holocaust. Through Night, Elie Wiesel paints a depressing picture about the loss of humanity. The Germans were going to defeat, but Hitler made the promise that he will annihilate all the Jews before the clock strikes twelve. The German government and German society attempted to redefine Jews as sub-human, and then as creatures who deserved to die.
In the end, there are no Martians, very few lonely Earthlings, and dead cities. Mars, intended to be a world filled with travelers from Earth results in a desolate, empty, and lifeless planet due to the invasion of Earthlings.

Chaos at the Do Lung Bridge Apocalypse Now showcases the story of Captain Willard and his mission to assassinate rogue colonel Kurtz while emphasizing the overall themes of the insanity of war, the desire to escape its terror, and the overall loss of morality one experiences during warfare. These three themes are demonstrated in a variety of ways at the Do Lung Bridge in what is regarded as one of the most significant scenes in the entire film. The scene at the bridge first fades in from black to reveal an anxious Willard trudging along a trench followed by a dazed Lance, tripping on the last of his acid. The scene is shot so that the cameras are deliberately level with the crouching soldiers and film close to the characters’ faces to help the audience feel as if they are actually in Vietnam looking at Willard and the other troops in the trenches. As Willard and Lance continue along the trenches, gunfire and bombs detonate in the
From anything like Legal consequences to the drug user putting their addiction before their family. This relates to how Grandel ruined families by killing loved ones. Another angle of devastation is the physical and mental effects it can have on a person who abuses drugs. It can affect your overall health, certain brain functions and sometimes even cause death. This shows even more closely how similar it is to the horrifying monster Grendel, “Killing as often as he could, coming alone, bloodthirsty and horrible.” (pg.26, line 80-81); both monsters have the same goal.
It makes the whole world suffer and eventually the entire human race will be destroyed.
