Furthermore, Bradley also indicates strong feelings towards two major themes of the book, which are pride in his country and a contempt for the media during wartime. Despite this book being nonfiction, it is clear that Bradley looks to create suspense and engage the audience using short sentence structure and anecdotes about his father and the other five men. For example, in chapter 5, page 20, Bradley writes, “December 1944. The last Christmas for too many young boys. Then off for the forty-day sail to Iwo Jima.” This excerpt contributes to Bradley’s dramatic tone as he talks about young men going off to battle, many not returning to see their families.

Fitzgerald makes it apparent throughout the novel that Gatsby does everything in hopes to compete against Tom and impress Daisy. For example, Gatsby throws lavish parties every weekend with the hope that Daisy will stumble in, and then they will be reunited and return to their old ways. Additionally, when Gatsby moves to the West Egg, he purposefully purchases an extravagant mansion near the Buchanan’s mansion where he can view their emerald light on his dock.
