The radios at Colonel Magnus’ CP were alive with incoming reports of the explosions and the large loss of life; his soldiers were being killed at an alarming rate. The Colonel ordered everyone to pull back a half mile from their current locations. He was ordering in artillery to take care of the
Everyone there must have been able to clearly visualize what it was like, and how the field was soaked with blood. He describes how horrible the fighting really was when he talks about the “smoke and hot lead pouring right through” the bodies of the soldiers. Coach Boone uses this imagery to draw the connection between present day and the past. He states that they are still fighting the same way, that there is figurative, and literal, smoke and hot lead pouring through their bodies by the way his team and community act toward each other. All this is for an appeal to their emotion.
Union Field Nurse Emma Edmonds said about the Battle at Bull Run, “Still the battle continues without cessation; the grape and canister fill the air as they go screaming on their fearful errand, the sight of that field is perfectly appalling; men tossing their arms wildly calling for help; they be bleeding, torn and mangled; legs, arms and bodies are crushed and broken as if smitten by thunderbolts; the ground is crimson with blood; it is terrible to witness” (Edmonds, 56). The first all-out clash of North and South, the Battle of Bull Run was a mess of casualties and confusion. Untrained and overconfident soldiers, union and rebel alike, paid a high price in dead and wounded. The southerners had won the battle and were able to take their time in handling the wounded and the dead. However, the Union retreat resulted in empty ambulances and over-burdened surgeons, at least those who were not taken prisoner and transported to
The Battle of the Bulge was brutal and relentless for Germany and the Allied forces. “We are surrounded. That simplifies the problem of getting at these people and killing them,” stated Lewis B. Chesty Puller (www.military-quotes.com). This quote displays the eagerness of the Americans wanting to destroy all of the German forces surrounding Bastogne. This quote also shows humor from the complete logic of the problem getting simplified.
America gathered with allies and they decided to attack Normandy beach.So this brings us to, why did D-day insure an alied victory.before D-day hapened japan bomed pearl harbor and Germany is takin almoast all of Euope and Aferica. But Germany made the mistake of turning on the Soviets so they are fighting the Soviets on the east and know that America will attack from the west. Adolf Hitler is commanding germany and is gathering all the jews and all other parties that he doesn 't like and puts them into camps and kills
More and more people began to notice Custer and an artist by the name of Alfred Waud started to draw pictures of Custer and print them (McNamara, n.d.). Waud wrote "Custer charged and charged again here capturing and destroying trains and making many prisoners.” Custer continued to fight and helped end the war by cutting off General Lee’s last escape route (Custer 2014). He was a general filled with energy and bravery that is hard to find anywhere these
“Yeah him,” Wes said as the Mountie turned around and Carlos pushed him off the building. “LET’S GO CARLOS” Wes said. “RUN, cops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FROM AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !” you could hear the fear in their voices, as they were running.
We kicked the van’s back door open with force almost breaking it. My group pulled up to the block pointed to the sky and made their things ro grrra-ta-ta-ta. People started to run and all you heard we’re blood curdling screams. While I headed to the truck with my teammate Andres the rest of the group coverde us. We got to the trucks and got what we were looking for.
Which was really bad that the Nazis knew they were coming ,because it will be harder to win. It was a bloody massacre possibly in the whole WW2 war. Before the battle could happen the allies had to come up with plans for the battle. The American allies came up with operation round up in which the British adopted. The Americans ,before D-Day, they weren’t in the allies until 12-7-1941 or Pearl Harbor.
They were fighting in many different locations from France to Iraq, and Greece to China, even the North Sea to the Pacific Ocean. They experienced many different and unique types of combat. Men ordered to attack had to climb out of their trenches, carrying their heavy weapons and heavy equipment, and they had to move to the enemy 's ground quietly and efficiently. The objective was to reach the enemy 's front line, where the defending troops would be sheltering in their own trenches, and use rifles or bayonets to attack them directly. The article explains how casualties were extremely high.
Waters life, he got abusive with Dory and slashed her on her face and pulled open her shirt. Dory began to yell for help and once Ben had gone down with a sledgehammer to help her she came back up running. Lavinia saw Dory storming into the room for help with blood dripping from her nose and the front of her shirt torn (Grissom, 92). Dory told Lavinia to get help and thankfully and Mr. Waters was taken care of.
Another plausible theory of why this battle was fought is that he wanted to push forward his troops to kill the other army’s troops so, that he could use his other part of his troops for the battle of gettysburg. The bloodiest day in America ever was September 17, 1862 also known as the battle of antietam. One of the plausible theories of why it was fought is that it was to stop Robert E. Lee’s first invasion on a northern state. That is a very plausible theory because Robert E. Lee was very aggressive and always tried to take the initiative in every battle or invasion. The
