The emotion and determination that Henry used was a great way to influence the public to go to war. Pathos was Henry's best form of persuasion in his “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech because it helped convince the Convention to go fight against the British in 1776.

He incorporates this idea into many different examples. Shakespeare feeds images and emotions into the minds of the soldiers to convince them into battle.

Macbeth is first described as a war hero who led the final blow on Macdonwald by a captain: “For brave Macbeth… with his brandished steel/ unseamed [Macdonwald] from the nave to th’ chops”(I, ii, 18, 20-24). With his ambition, he is able to gain the upper hand and lead his army into a successful battle that was incredibly close to losing. Ultimately, his eagerness to lead these people not only because he is a thane, but also because of his loyalty to King Duncan reveals how he is an astounding leader who is successful. In turn, the audience is able to see Macbeth as a hero, more specifically a leader who is honest and loyal. Along with the battle comes the reward and Macbeth is given the new title ‘Thane of Cawdor’ from King Duncan who announces “What [Thane of Cawdor] hath lost, noble Macbeth hath won”(I, ii, 67) Through earnest motivation, Macbeth has now won a new title and trust from the king which in turn allows him to take a step closer into possibly obtaining the royal throne.
Film has the ability to capture events in time that visual narrate suffering, pain, honor, and death. These elements of the human experience separates photography and cinema from other art forms, as the viewer witnesses what they believe is untampered truth.

This war was of biblical proportions with over 72 million casualties and scares that were felt in almost every part of the world form Europe, China, Middle East, North Africa, South-East Asia and the Pacific. World War II set a script of tremendous magnitude that any director would love to depict with names like Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, Gen. Patton, and Gen. Eisenhower leading the allied forces against the evilness set by the axis forces of Hirohito’s Japan, Benito Mussolini’s Italy, and the most villainous of all Germany’s Adolph Hitler.
