As Figure 4-2 is showing, the trench itself was narrow, dirty, and opened that soldiers did not even have proper places to rest. This is extremely dangerous because the soldiers in trenches could be attacked by developed weapon like artillery from vertical direction. As well as dangerous war weapons, trenches were full of unwanted factors: muddy grounds, rats, insufficient food and shelters. These factors allowed disease to spread. Soldier’s clothes were infected with lice, and many men got trench foot, a painful and gangrenous disease, they even got mental disease.
The attackers road horses, waiting in thick bushes for their victims, the springing out to attack them and then escape as quickly as they could. One such group, led by Thomas Livingston was known for murdering their prisoners of war, and were a menace to the Federal army for almost two years. (Johansson, p. 183). All in all, Guerrilla warfare was a brutal type of war, one which created some of the bloodiest fights in the Civil
Owen is stressing the conditions of the soldiers being exhausted, barely walking and overall deformed, unlike what the propaganda posters showed. It is used to create a picture in the audience’s mind to show the suffering of the soldiers and the effects of war. He is teaching the audience the truth about war and is proving the propaganda posters wrong. A simile has also been used which compares the physically drained soldiers to beggars.
E. The Tutsis and Hutus have been enemies for years now and they want the each other to pay. So they start fighting and it ends with hundreds of thousands of deaths. II. Body Paragraph #1: Delve into who are the Tutsis and Hutus. A.
The Civil War was a brutal time in American history, pinning neighbor against neighbor. Many families were broken up and soldiers often the went wandering into battle aimlessly. Frustrated by this war, an American author, Stephen Crane shows his distaste for this war by his ironic works: the poem “War is kind” and the short story “The Mystery of Heroism” by bringing the loss of family and pointless deaths to advocate against the war. Throughout “War is Kind” a mockery of how the barbarity of war affect spouses, children and parents of the soldiers lost. It specifically focuses on the families orientated around the soldiers in battle and how their deaths have came to be.
World War I was a global war between many nations. These nations include Germany, Austria-Hungary, Serbia, Russia, Great Britain, France, and Belgium. The war began between Austria-Hungary and Serbia (Black Hand) when Franz Ferdinand was assassinated on June 28, 1914. After, many of the other nations had joined in; therefore, creating a world war. The war had lasted until 1918.
Chemicals were the most feared weapon of World War One for a good reason, many soldiers froze or turned and ran in terror when they saw evidence of gas because those caught in it without a proper gas mask died a slow and painful death.The morale of an army while it is intangible, is extremely important, and nothing could destroy it like chemical weapons. Sometimes the main goal behind a gas attack wasn’t even physical harm, often it was simply to terrorize the enemy or even hide an infantry or some other kind of assault. Soldiers that didn’t die from exposure to gas were usually so adversely affected they could no longer perform basic tasks, let alone fight a battle. Mustard gas, for example, is one of World War One’s most famous and feared weapons, yet it rarely killed those exposed to it. It did, however, often cause blindness, lifelong respiratory problems, and severe burns on the skin that could easily lead to cancer down the road.
Australian army nurses were not treated the same as men as they were fallaciously thought as inferior, unintelligent and weak. Furthermore, most men were against women working at war. Whilst obscure, this harsh mistreatment left a significant impact on the Australian army nurses ' lives as they eternally felt oppressed, undesirable and endured low self-esteem. Therefore it is crucial to add this artefact in in the Australian War Memorial so the vile discrimination Australian army nurses endured can be recognised by many. This image illustrates Australian army nurses conducting an operation on a grievously injured soldier.
It was first conceptualized in 1980, prior to that, the soldiers were just given psychotic meds and sent on their way.“In World War One, they called it shell shock. Second time around, they called it battle fatigue. After 'Nam, it was post-traumatic stress disorder”(Jan Karon, Home to Holly Springs). Despite more awareness, PTSD is still not understood by the general populace due to this, veterans coming home from war have an extremely difficult time re-assimilating into normal American society. This difficulty results in a social stigma around our vets, which makes this such a major social issue.
