Warren St. John went a long way to ensure that the reader knew that those countries weren’t always ravaged by war, using paragraphs or entire chapters to convey the story of how those countries got to ripped apart forcing people to leave their homes. He emphasized the fact that something went wrong. And when the refugees like Beatrice Ziaty, Paula Balegamire, or Kanue Biah experienced that hardship, they were torn apart.

For people like me who have never experienced the horrors of being in battle during war, this book painted a good picture of what it was like being in battle. The emotional trauma that these men had to endure, words cannot express what they must have been through. The book All quite in the western front had many traits that it expressed in it such as loss, despair, and alienation. Many would agree that this book expressed the trait of loss in this book many times; however, this book portrayed loss not only in death, but also innocents, and how the characters have changed.
This was reality for most people in Japan, in Document 4 Takeharu Terao one of the few Atomic Bomb Survivors in Hiroshima says “Just before eight, an air raid siren sounded. We took cover while complaining, because we were already accustomed to the siren.” These students weren’t even prepared for an attack, they didn’t expect anyone to bomb a populated city no matter how bad the war had gotten but America did. There were many bombing during WWII but the reason why they aren’t talked about as much as the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima is because they were bombings on military bases and soldiers, most soldiers were prepared to die for their country and would do anything to keep their country safe but citizens aren’t required to feel the same. They were innocent people, families were torn apart, children were killed and hospitals, a place where you were supposed to recover were destroyed (Document 7).

“I realize how precious life is, probably because I've seen how it can be taken away,” (1) In First World countries, the mortifying news of refugees and asylum seekers dying, or being forced to leave their homes, move people's hearts, bringing forth sympathetic tears and prayers. There is no need to take in every single refugee in the world, but taking those in immediate crisis and danger should definitely be a top priority.

Australia was a young nation when it participated in World War 1 and became an independent nation through Federation on the 1st of January 1901. Before 1901, Australia consisted of six separate colonies that each had their own government, laws, defence force and collected taxes. This was abolished due to the system's inefficiency in regulating laws, immigration and how weak each individual was. Australia was a juvenile nation stepping into the brutalities of WW1 having a small population with little understanding of military tactics. The reason behind Australia’s involvement was their dedication to their mother country, Britain, not to mention since Britain declared war on Germany, Australia was undoubtedly involved.
