Lastly, while Nately is having a conversation with the old man in chapter 23, Nately makes a statement which the old man opposes saying, “I’m afraid you have it backward. It is better to live on one’s feet than die on one’s knees.” (Heller 247) My understanding of the old man’s statement is that it’s better to live as a slave than die as a hero.

O'Brien vilifies the soldiers as they what seems to be ruthlessly out of the burned out husk of a building.

Pilgrim and seemingly Vonnegut himself, as he writes in first person basing the narrative of Pilgrim’s life on his own, during World War II witness so much fatality and destruction that the inevitability of war and death eventually cease to faze the veterans as they adopt
The civil war was a bloody and gruesome fight to preserve a way of life that was looked upon as immoral and unconstitutional. John Sherman described in a letter the views of soldiers and men, “The same qualities that have enabled a single generation of men to develop the resources of a continent would enable us to destroy it more rapidly.” Government leaders and soldiers ignored the work that went into building America and were able to accept the killings fellow men or other innocent people without shedding a tear because of the need to feel superior to other men.

World War I is a well-known historical event, which resulted in immense casualties and distress in the early 20th century. The war paved the way for significant political changes to occur, and entirely reshaped the European map.
