Wilfred Owen enlisted in the army during the war and therefore saw disturbing and horrifying scenes in his time away in the trenches, unlike Pope who was not involved in trench warfare, but saw life during the war as a beneficial time for women of Britain.

His intentions may not always reflect the best that a man can be, yet he made the world realize that if we are not unified then we can be defeated. Hitler taught us many lessons that affect the way we live our lives today such as the protection on all the borders and the United Nations keeping the peace between countries. Yet the world was not always as peaceful as many people believe it to be today. Hitler was only a young man when he realized what was happening to his country because of World War 1. The suffering that many Germans had to go through because of the Treaty of Versailles was tragic and unforgiveable by many.
ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT All Quiet on the Western Front, written by Erich Maria Remarque is a first hand experience account of the war. The horror of the war and Remarque's own terrifying experiences and memories would certainly have effected what he wrote. All Quiet on the Western Front was published in March 1929, London. The late publication of the novel may have been due to the grief and trauma that Remarque experienced in the war. All Quite on the Western Front was written for the millions of men who fought for their countries.
When the thought of history comes to mind, most people tend to reflect on the many wars that our world has experienced. Not only the wars that involved our individual countries, but also the wars fought in other countries. Of all the wars that have been fought, one of the largest is World War I. This war involved many countries, therefore a great amount of people have felt sorrow over this war. Although many people feel sorrow, nobody actually knows the true pain and suffering as a soldier to who experienced this horrifying war.
Men were tricked into war considering that after war, they may have a chance of having possessions such as fame and riches. This persuaded males to go out and sign for the war at that time most people were poor and were willing to do anything for fame and riches. Government spreaded propaganda across the areas as they demanded men to join the army this was because their country was in danger. In addition to this, throughout the war millions of soldiers experienced and lived the horrors of trench warfare. Conditions in the trenches were shocking.
The Horrors of War Throughout their lives, people must deal with the horrific and violent side of humanity. The side of humanity is shown through the act of war.

The war destroyed and put an end man's life. It destroyed people in physical and even the emotional. These soldiers with major injuries will hold them all back from what they love to do most and what they w... ... middle of paper ... ...is story, Hemingway brings the readers back the war and see what it caused to human as well as shows that how the war can change a man's life forever. We think that just people who have been exposed to the war can deeply understand the unfortunates, tolls, and devastates of the war. He also shared and deeply sympathized sorrows of who took part in the war; the soldiers because they were not only put aside the combat, the war also keeps them away from community; people hated them as known they are officers and often shouted " down with officers" as they passing.
Trench warfare was hell for all those involved, many returning home in a different state of mind than they left with. Also, WWI claimed the lives of many of America's brightest minds, including doctors, writers, and novelists. In this poem written by Owen, the events of a typical day in the war is detailed and described to show that war is not as glorious and honorable as those back home picture it. The title, meaning 'how sweet and fitting it is to die for one's country', is actually very sarcastic and depicts the feelings of many of those that were fighting. The first stanza sets the scene and show what the soldiers would be feeling at the time.
During World War I, many people from all over the world had lost their lives due to “imperial, territorial, and economic rivalries” between many countries (InfoPlease 2007). Many people felt that the war was very unnecessary and that there should be peace and happiness. At the time of the event, you can understand why Alfred Lichtenstein, a German poet who had written “Farewell for Peter Scher” in 1914. As well as William Butler Yeats, an Irish poet wrote “An Irish Airman Foresees His Death” in 1918. World War I had a strong influence on both these poets who express how war simply destroy the nation or a person completely.
Warfare has always been experienced differently by men and women. In many cases, men are in the frontline and face different conditions as compared to women who are on the home front. World War I is one of the most discussed wars that the world has experienced so far. The sheer extent to which the war affected people in different countries around the different continents around the world is appalling. The structure of the society was shaken by World War I.
