The leader of their small group, Stanislaus “Kat” Katczinsky, acts as a mentor and father figure to them, but especially to Paul. They all have to deal with the chaos and brutality of war, many mental and physical challenges, along with many losses, but they have the support of their comrades to help them through it. In All Quiet on the Western Front, Remarque exhibits that in the hardships of war, the bonds between soldiers are extremely prevalent, and comradeship and brotherhood become stronger and more important. The card game Skat is an important motif in the novel that helps to support the theme of brotherhood and
The movie itself can also be deemed credible because it was partially based on a true story. It was based on the Niland brothers, four siblings who all served in the US Army during World War II. Three of the four brothers, Robert, Preston, and Edward, were supposedly killed in action, which caused their remaining brother, Fritz (whom the character Private Ryan was based on) to be shipped back to America so that the Niland family wouldn’t lose all of their sons. For the pathos in this trailer, one can just conclude that the whole trailer is involved in pathos because to establish emotion and connect to the audience or in this case the viewers of this trailer the pathos can be the music in the background, the sad expression the General has the video, and the things said in the letter all have the emotional appeal.

Most stories of war have a hard time showing positivity in something as dismal as war. It's a story of brotherhood, love of people and their country, heroism, and pride. Bradleys father, a hardened WWII veteran, told his son, “Your teacher said something about heros… and I want you to always remember something. The heroes of Iwo Jima are the men who did not make it back,” (Bradley 343). He wants his son to know that all people involved in the war deserved to be honored and remembered, the ones who died more so than the ones who lived.
The strong men, alive and no longer living, who had a hard time here, have officially made it, higher than our weak strength to attract or let go (paragraph 3). The brave men who fought in the war did have a hard time trying to stay motivated, but they did stay strong and committed to their task. Given that, Lincoln had honored the soldiers who gave their lives during the war, and he also made sure they didn’t die in vain. Given that, Abraham gave the soldiers a designated place for them to rest for their
Bleier was born on March 5, 1946 in Appleton, Wisconsin, and was the oldest of four children. Born Robert Patrick Bleier he was given his nickname by his father who thought he looked like a “Rock” sitting in his crib, the name stuck, and the US would know him as Rocky.

Jimmy cross was the lieutenant of the Alpha Company, being fully responsible for all of the soldiers and getting them through the battles. However, he was battling through his own predicament, his undefying love for an American women named Martha. The constantly daydreaming leader had thought he had lost the respect of all of his soldiers when one of his own men was KIA because of his “love for Martha”. The soldier finally thought, “He would dispense with love; it was not now a factor” (O’Brien 250). After the death of his dear friend, Cross changed into a strict and orderly lieutenant.
Through the point of view, the feelings of admiration and empathy are brought out for Lieutenant Cross, and it conveys the theme that war weighs heavily on a soldier. The story has a “moral”, which teaches the reader about the struggles during war. The total omniscient point of view is best for this story because it gets the author’s point across and shows multiple views of war. Through the point of view, it gives a realistic view of battle, and it creates a deep admiration and respect for veterans by showing the struggles of all the
Johnny’s a tragic hero because he strives to be a good person and to help others in need; Johnny enlisted in the Vietnam war to “better” his life. In the play people considered johnny as a good person because he helps his father out with the field. Johnny was only 8 years old when he started working like a man; therefore his father feels very proud of him for helping the family. For example, in scene three shows us how he helped out “pass, I already pick 20 trays, paapa”! (Valdez, page 631) That
Even though Patroklos has nothing to do with the war itself, he is selfless in feeling compassion for his friends and wanting to fight alongside them in battle. In addition, the uplifting speeches Nestor and Telamonian Aias give to the troops are illustrations on how hero’s should act. To take account of each other, to be disciplined, to
