Heller is a World War II pilot also. He uses past experience’s while he writes the novel.

After Thomas Paine printed his Common Sense pamphlet that helped begin the war, he knew that he would have to try to write another pamphlet when General George Washington fled from New York after a hammering defeat from the British. So he came out with his next incredible piece of literary art which was called The American Crisis. Thomas Paine achieved exactly what he aimed for by writing that pamphlet. George Washington had it read to all of his troops in an attempt to try to boost his men 's moral before hosting an attack against enemy Hessians. When Washington and his men crossed the Delaware with their renewed moral, they not only beat the near legendary Hessians but also continued on and beat General Earl Cornwallis at the Battle of Princeton.

The first reason I will re-enlist is the hope that Thomas Paine gave all of us.
Revolutionary War Essay By: Devin O’Neill I believe that the colonists should be held responsible for firing the first shot of the revolutionary war. I settled my opinion on this, because the colonists were the angriest prior to the battle between the two groups. The British had been dominating, and left the colonists to suffer.

The war of 1812 had an immense impact on the new nation’s future.

The U.S. declared war on England because they had violated our neutrality rights and we ultimately emerged from the war stronger and more nationalistic.
