Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships.
Day 1 I got lost out in the wilderness. My heart fueled my body with adrenalin, so much that I couldn’t stop shaking. My actions today put everyone in my squad in great danger, and I hate myself for it. We were all so excited for Saturday when we finished up our patrol. All we could think about was those extra hours of sleep that the morning would bring.
The lice created a sour smell on the soldier. The soldiers lived in terrible conditions and couldn’t wash their clothes. The lice were hidden in het soldiers clothes so they could not be found. The itch was terrible and the used a candle over their legs to burn them. If they find lice you could hear him pop like popcorn.
There was no formal or proper hygiene while in the trenches, and medical care was less than desirable. Most of the time the cure was worse than the illness. Diseases like Cholera, Typhus, and Disentary thrived because of animals such as rats and mice. While poor sewage and terrible waste disposal along with stagnant water, ruined food, and uncovered decaying bodies laid host to numerous diseases. While the Western front laid way for diseases and sickness the terrority between enemy lines known as “no man’s land” was a literal nightmare.
The trenches were very tight and often there were over 10 men in them at a time. The maggot and flies stay around to victual off the dead animals and bodies. As already been told, the trenches were composed out of mud, but when the temperature commences to go down and it gets more gelid, many of the soldiers suffered from frostbite. Another key point
Dehumanization, neglect and the ovens were not the right solution to Hitler's plan. The people who lived through these harsh years are scarred for life. Hope filled their minds while they all prayed to God to leave Auschwitz some day. The time went further and every day felt longer. Death happened through
At the beginning of the war, Jünger was excited to be fighting for his country, but by the end he admitted he tired of the war. When he first arrived, he was “enraptured by war” (Jünger, p. 5). The war would be a great adventure and Jünger and his fellow soldiers were excited to partake in the war. Even months later, after Jünger sustained his first injury and went home, he saw the loss of blood and lives during the war as a necessary way to protect his “beautiful country” (Jünger, p. 33). Jünger’s tone gradually changed throughout his war years, perhaps because death and destruction constantly surrounded him.
In Night, Jews being held in concentration camps were constantly catching diseases. Morrie’s father had caught a horrible disease and died from it. Because of all of these diseases, it was almost impossible for Jews to keep any of their
He chased our canter all the way out of his village and I waved and cried until he was out of sight. I never knew his name but his face is ever burned in my heart. I had been living selfishly, constantly consumed with myself. Hypocrisy was common to me, because I lived it every day, but that day changed my
World War 1 changed everything for me. After the war ended, I was walking around to see what damage has been done to our country. While I was walking around all I heard was kids and adults crying and screaming people someone in their family like their mom, dad, brother, or sister was killed in the war. A few hours have gone by and people started to clean up the mess that was made during the war. So then I realized that my dad was coming back from the war and I wonder if he was dead or if he was alive.
For Rosce Hogan family, they were absolutely devastated and could not believe how a mosquito could not only hurt a person but kill them. He died at the age of 76 years old. His friend and family were shocked at the horrific event that happened to a love one in their lives. Every day they think about him and wonder how a bite could have caused this tragedy. They say that his life will be remembered and live on forever.
He is excited to join and to serve his country, little did he know that war is an aberration. His whole world turns upside down; experiencing grief, and terror. This caused him to become very bewildered. "The wisest were just the poor and simple people. They knew the war to be a misfortune, whereas those who were better off, and should have been able to see more clearly what the consequences would be, were beside themselves with joy.
no2 one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget. The North has been known for having a larger amount of soldiers then the south (Confederates). So far this has been the most bloodiest most terrifying battle of all because yesterday was the most Americans that have died in two battles combined. We will always and forever remember this day as the worst day in the history. Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.
