Soon after Riches becomes sick and misses a patrol with his company. This causes him to be placed into another for a day to go on another patrol due to missing one. During this patrol his company open fires on a believed to be enemy position. Turn out that the enemy position was actually another company patrolling. This part plays a big toll in Richies thought process of Vietnam.
This incident sets off a train of events that would forever change John Dunbar and the Sioux tribe he encounters. When Dunbar realizes that the Indians know where he lives, he becomes extremely paranoid and spends his days preparing the fort for another confrontation. He buries all the extra materials in fear that they might fall into enemy hands. On one of his daily rides around the frontier, Dunbar comes across an Indian woman crying under a tree. He sees the imminent danger from the woman’s self-inflicted wounds and determines it is his duty to return the woman to the Sioux camp.
This seems to be a foreshadow of the first meeting of Dunbar with the Sioux Indians, because like in the opening scene, he is unafraid to look into the face of a man who would usually be considered his enemy. After John Dunbar has ridden across the front lines twice, he falls from the horse out of mere exhaustion and is taken care of immediately. To show that Dunbar is valued by those around him, the do... ... middle of paper ... ...views of these people and what they are expected to be, is taken away as the viewer realizes that the life of the natives is very common and understandable. This film almost goes to prove that often the reason that a certain group is tagged by prejudice views, is because little is known about where they are coming from, how they live or what they are experiencing in life. The film Dances With Wolves does a good job of proving that often our stereotypical views of others are inaccurate, and that the Native Americans of the west were not all that different from the whites that also inhabited the plains.
All Quiet on the Western Front The remains of Paul Baumer's company had moved behind the German front lines for a short rest at the beginning of the novel. After Behm became Paul's first dead schoolmate, Paul viewed the older generation bitterly, particularly Kantorek, the teacher who convinced Paul and his classmates to join the military, feeling alone and betrayed in the world that they had left for him. Paul's generation felt empty and isolated from the rest of the world due to the fact that they had never truly established any part of themselves in civilian life. At boot camp, Himmelstoss abused Paul and his friends, yet the harassment only brought them closer together and developed a strong spirit amongst them. Katczinsky, or Kat, was soon shown to be a master scavenger, being able to provide the group with food or virtually anything else; on this basis Paul and him grew quite close.
Not thinking of the real effects and consequences that may occur but rather joining for the idea of heroism. Witnessing the frightening jobs that have to be done and comrades falling to death. This is seen after going to combat on the battlefield and watching young men die.

Film Critique of “Dances with Wolves” This is a wonderful movie that is set in 1863 during the civil war. The main character is John Dunbar, a Lieutenant in the United States Army, who is played by Kevin Costner. The movie begins with Dunbar in the field hospital with a severely wounded leg that the Dr.’s are planning to amputate. Dunbar decides that he does not want to live minus a leg and leaves the field hospital, takes a horse and rides across the length of the enemy lines where he expects that he will meet his death. Instead of meeting his death he somehow is missed by the folly of bullets aimed at him, and his actions inspire his troops to break the stalemate and overcome the enemy confederate troops.
Owen’s poem focuses on the death on battlefields and shows how those who die in war often do not receive the normal ceremonies that are used to honor the dead. Owens first line “What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?” describes the doomed youth, masses of the young soldiers dying in a slaughter. Owen uses this simile to show how the soldier’s deaths are no more honorable than the deaths of mindless animals, which shows the value of their lives which Owen believes the campaign leaders think of the soldiers. This line of Owens poem stood out the most to me, as even today soldiers sent on mission still run the risk of being slaughtered like cattle just like those in world war one. Which shows that even after 100 years, Owens poems are still just as rele... ... middle of paper ... ...ive men dying is similar to that of Owens.

The way that he develops the characters makes the reader care about them and makes them want to know what will happen to them throughout the story. I am a huge fan of this book even though John Green kind of angered me with all the emotional plot twists he kept throwing in the story but that was what made me love the book even more. Miles “Pudge” Halter, the protagonist, is fascinated and obsessed with people’s last words. He decides to go to a boarding school called Culver Creek Preparatory High School in search of the Great Perhaps. There, he meets his roommate Chip “the Colonel” Martin who introduces him to Alaska Young, the most beautiful girl he ever met.
