1 Diseases Today I want to tell you about the diseases in World War one. Many of those diseases led to the dead of the soldiers because they had little knowledge and medicine. The conditions in the trenches were horrible. Little foot and fresh water, living in wet trenches, no medical care were the cause of those diseases: Trench foot, trench fever, gas, trench mouth, venereal diseases... Soldiers were sick, hungry and were exposure to the elements of nature.
Because of these hard and damp conditions, it was very hard for the soldiers to rejuvenate in the trenches. Hot food was very rare as there was no time to heat it up. Many soldiers had the luck of pabulum and warmth to perpetuate them in the fight. 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.
They would have no nails, they had worn them off pulling hides; their knuckles were swollen so that their fingers spread out like a fan. There were men who worked in the cooking-rooms...in these rooms the germs of tuberculosis might live for two years.” These suffering Americans appealed to the government and labor unions for help, but they did not receive it due to lack of union organization, big business ties, and laissez-faire economic ideals. During the Gilded Age, the U.S. government suppressed the average industrial worker, and labor unions, though created for laborers’ aid, accomplished little and were futile when facing big business and government.
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!
But it wasn’t at all what I expected it to be, it was very long and it was devastating, I felt so bad about all the people that died in the war. We had to dig out these long hole in the ground and made a trail, called a trench. We were asked to stay in the trenches in order to survive, I would agree because
Soldiers receiving a draft letter for war is typically a very hard and stressful time in their lives, especially the draft for Vietnam, the only draft America has had so far. Most of the men being drafted were young and unexperienced in war, making them hate it even more. They were taken and dropped into some of the worst circumstances the U.S. military has ever seen and expected to fight alongside people they had never even met before. As the war went on, the platoon members would bond, and have to watch their new friends get injured or die right in front of them, and wonder why they didn’t die as well. The harshness of the war made the soldiers look for any kind of escape from reality or way to make war easier, and they found drugs to be
The Gallipoli campaign began when the Anzacs landed on Gallipoli on the 25th of April 1915. The campaign went for 8 long and exhausting months with 30 - 40, 000 casualties occurred. The soldiers at Gallipoli were constantly fighting the freezing cold, lack of water and food, the sweltering heat in some days and the diseases being spread around. A day to day life for a soldier was to make their country proud and to try and stay as healthy as possible in the shocking conditions. One of the most famous battles fought at Gallipoli was the lone pine battle.
An inevitable part of trench life was the tedious task of maintaining the trenches when not under fire. In one newspaper, a soldier reports that trench life is “simply, dull, dreary work...where there’s more mud than glory and more chills on the liver than cheers” (“Dreary Work in the Trenches”). The same type of complaint of dreary work is held by the soldiers in the play who complain of “twelve weary hours..and wasting hours...and hot and heavy hours” of transporting ammunition (O’Casey 34). The alternative, according to the first soldier, is “glory” and “cheers”. However, surrounding this scene are two sets of stage directions which detail past and future destruction.
His father was taken away and forced to work on the roads. Izods family had to scavenge for anything, but it didn’t last long. His whole family died of starvation. Izod sought revenge, he had remembered the name “Buckridge” who had caused this. Izod became miserable, but dedicated to kill Buckridge.
I feared the worst while I was sitting on the table and when he walked in with a intense looking face I knew it was bad. The doctor told me I had torn my hamstring and it was so violent that it came all the way off the bone bringing some of the bone with it. This meant months of being on crutches and a year of physical therapy. I was depressed upon hearing the news and was sad knowing I probably wouldn't be able to play baseball that year. I was on crutches for six months and physical therapy for another seven months slowly making progress day by day.
]Previously, Steinbeck was elucidating the condition of the boxcar camp, and stated that it is raining excessively, and it has become a threat to the migrants home. Afterwards, Pa Joad, and the men from the camp digged a trench along the bank of the river to stop the water from intruding the homes of the migrants, not to mention they had no other alternative, being that Rosharon is going to have her baby. Subsequently, Rosharon lost her child, and the rain became life-threatening that the Joad family had no alternative, but to to travel to another safe location from the rain, and

Script EXT. MONTAGE OF EVENTS IN NORTH AFRICAN DESERT George (Voice-Over) Dear Hester, It seems a very long time since we met in Keady. This tragic period of events has put us in a warm paradise; a place what the rest of the group refers to as an empty world.

It's viciously cold, people are sick, hunger is spreading across all two thousand huts, and that’s just the beginning. Further on, I hear gunshots being fired while soldiers are marching.
