“When a man has seen so many dead he cannot understand any longer why there should be so much anguish over a single individual.” (Remarque, 181) During the war, many soldiers may often become desensitized and not feel the emotions they would usually feel when a friend or comrade dies. The war causes them to have a feeling of loss; they lose their emotions and friends; they lose a part of themselves during the war.

Paul, the main character from Erich Maria Remarque’s novel, All Quiet on The Western Front, and Roland Gerard Garvin, known as Ged, a British soldier who often
The Glorification of Psychological Harm “Epitaph on a Soldier,” by Cyril Tourneur, an English soldier and diplomat during the 16th and 17th centuries, depicts the honorable death of a soldier during a time when war was glorious and fighting for one’s country was almost customary. Meanwhile, in “The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner,” the 20th century poet Randall Jarrell illustrates a more bleak image of gunner’s blunt and harsh death during World War II, when war became less magnificent and much more brutal.

This shows how the sniper’s actions without thought affect him for the worse. O’Flaherty establishes the theme of “The Sniper” by using description and irony. After the sniper turns over the dead body, he realizes what he has done. He was not thinking when he shot the enemy. His actions without thought end with him getting shot and him shooting and killing his brother.
In war soldiers aren't dreaming about glory or honor, all they dream about is to hide their feelings, and it they don't hide them then they feel embarrassed, and they experience soldier's greatest fear. Shame haunts down these soldiers during entire war. But in war shame also is a motivation for fighting better and being brave, because whenever a soldier is brave and good fighter he never experiences the blush of
She yells for help and a workman conveniently passes by and saves both. The story was included in the paper because it insinuates that a woman can have fearless qualities, however, she cannot act on them without a man’s aid. In contrast, the BOP uses the article “Jacques Faubert, The Drummer Boy” (1880) to portray a boy being solemnly brave about dying for his country. His enlistment as a soldier saddens his mother, who is then comforted by the fact that his involvement in the war will bring her honor. At 13 years old he is shot in the head and wounded and meets Napoleon himself, who asks him what he wants to be awarded, to which he responds, “To die in your service, sire.” Eventually he passes away, and it was important that the message was given to his mother that he had died bravely, because any other way would be wrong, according to their values.
