Never has a book so accurately described the horrors of war on humanity, and depicted them in such a faceted and rich way. Not only does he evoke the carnage and butchery generated by war in a unique and innovative fashion, but he also daringly personifies the absolute torment imposed upon the soldier psyche. Epitomizing this; at the end of the novel, every single major character has been slain in some barbaric way or another, allowing the author to once again highlight the endless disaster of war. He shows how soldiers were fundamentally and inherently altered by war, physically tortured and mentally
Yeats wrote this poem after the end of World War 1, where not only Europe was broken into million pieces physically but also went down morally with chaos and disharmony left behind (Holman, 2014). Holman believed that not only was the disharmony left behind but it left the minds of people live with fear. Similarly, in his poem “The second Coming “ Yeats opens with an image of falcon moving away from its falconer by being uncontrollable, and swinging outward in a “widening gyre” (Yeats, 1920). Therefore, he shows that the people went out of hand and it was difficult to keep them in tacked to create harmony and peace where the center of the earth is being unable to hold as "things fall apart". This is another symbolic image which brings forth the idea that the political and moral structure that guided people has been broken and all that is left is the presence of "mere anarchy"(Yeats, 1920), with no laws left to govern the people and keep them in tacked in harmony and peace as people were gone all chaotic after World War 1.

These survivors and their families had suffered the aftermaths for many later decades after the end of World War ll and death of Hitler. The army and politicians crush them and exploited them for many decades after seizing the genocide and occupation in 1945. Through these autobiographies we can see that its not only Jews but many other tribes and sects had faced the terror and were killed
VIETNAM WAR “I hate war as only a soldier who has lived it can, only as one who has seen its brutality and its stupidity”. This quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower shows the true picture of the war. War is an enemy of all the humanity and human civilization. Wars are necessary evils and their horrors are of such magnitude that they can’t be described in words. Thousands of people lost their homes and many people were made orphan and widows.
World war 1 (WWI) was one of the biggest wars that have ever occurred, and it affected many people such as writers and poets. Some of the poets include Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon.
