How did Kurt Vonnegut use postmodern approaches to create an antiwar antinovel in Slaughterhouse 5? When Slaughterhouse 5 was published, it could have been considered as an outsider in the literary world. In the midst of the Vietnam war, it was preaching antiwar notions, and in a time where straightforward linear storylines dominated the media, Slaughterhouse 5 presented a challenging nonlinear plot. The nonlinearity in plots would later on become a staple of postmodern literature but Kurt Vonnegut missed the peak of the postmodern era publishing the novel in 1969; a decade before the peak in the 1980's.

Differences are often hard to overlook- if a person looks different, people stare; if a person has a different opinion, people will argue. Everyone recognizes differences, but it is what we do about it that matters.
Like any other war, much of the damage and casualties resulted from civilian deaths when the raging armies swept through the colonies. The Loyalists- those who supported Great Britain and King George- and the Patriots- those who supported the principles of freedom and independence- alike were both hurt, killed, imprisoned, or otherwise dragged into the war, even when they did not join the army for either side. The Collier brothers use various instances of deaths throughout the storyline of My Brother Sam is Dead to show how the injustices and violences of war inherently manifest themselves. The irony of Jerry Sanford, Eliphalet Meeker, and Samuel Meeker’s deaths ultimately induce Tim to make the decision to remain neutral for the duration of the American Revolution.

The Great War has been described in many articles and passionate writings, but one specific piece has grabbed the attention of people over the years; “Generals Die in Bed”. This novel was written by Charles Yale Harrison. This war was primitive in the concept of a world wide war, as was shown by the type of warfare, and simple lack of basic rules of war. In comparison of weaponry from then and now, this Great War was considered savage and barbaric, due not only to the amount of sheer death and injured, but also because of how these casualties happened. The bayonet, a long knife on the tipend of a firearm, was key for shortranged combat.
