The Japanese had various weapons as they attacked with mortars, machine guns, and grenades to take the lives of American marines. Sledge describes this part as the most intolerable experience he can remember. Bullets, grenades, mortars, all seeking to kill as many Americans as possible, bodies splashing everywhere. Keep in mind the marines are coming off a boat to get to the shore of Pelilieu so that means there is nowhere to take cover since they are in water. The only thing to do is run.
Maud had lied to her about her whereabouts last night. Tiziana obviously was in good health and had spent the night away.

Long as morning rose and the favored day developed more grounded we stood and fended them off, massed as they were, yet at that point, when the sun wheeled past the hour for unyoking bulls, the Cicones broke our lines and beat us down finally. Out of each ship, six men-at-arms were slaughtered; whatever remains of us paddled far from certain fate. From that point we cruised on, happy to get away from our demise yet wiped out on the most fundamental level for the dear colleagues we had lost. In any case, I would not give our moving boats a chance to set sail until the point when the teams had raised the triple cry, saluting every poor friend chop around the furious Cicones on that plain. Presently Zeus who masses the stormclouds hit the armada with the North Wind a yelling, satanic storm, covering over in thunderheads the earth and ocean on the double what's more, night cleared down from the sky and the boats went diving fast on, our sails sliced to clothes by the sea tempest's impact!
As the sharks approaches the boat, Santiago prepares his harpoon, hoping to kill the shark before it tears apart the marlin. "The shark's head was out of water and his back was coming out and the old man could hear the noise of skin and flesh ripping on the big fish when he rammed the harpoon down onto the shark's head" (102). The dead shark slowly sinks into the deep ocean water leaving behind almost nothing of the marlin. After the voyage back to shore Santiago feels relief for the marlin may still be there but not
This story starts off with Rainsford falling off of a boat and swimming to a near island, where he meet a local psychopath named Zaroff. Zaroff got bored with hunting animals so he has moved onto bigger things, humans. He would mislead ships and make them wreck. Then give the people on the ships two options, be hunted for three days or be tortured. This falls with the other two because he also was not in his correct state of mind, as Hamlet was not either.
This crucial battle proved to be the turning point for Caputo and the others. In the monsoon rains, insects, diseases, random sniper fire, and finally full out battles, the Marines charge into their notions of the war. They searched villages full of Viet Cong and crept along passages laden with explosive mines, trip wire, or ambushes. They hardly slept, ate cold food, and slashed through miles of jungle in the middle of the rain and with every step, they were running on a high that comes from staring down at death, knowing any of them could be shot by a sniper or blown to bits by a mine. This environment of high tension, however, came at a high price.
