War

- There was stalemate on the western front, several efforts were made to make a breakthrough, but every one resulted in failure with thousands of casualties. The Germans were too dug in to make the British artillery bombardments effective and so there were massacres such as the Somme. • Turkey had joined the war by attacking Russia, although this attack was easily beaten off by the Russians, turkey was now an enemy and it controlled the only entrance to the Black sea at the Dardenelles. This prevented Russia from receiving supplies and trade from the Mediterranean, an important link to the other allies • If Turkey could be crushed then it would perhaps cause other powers in the area s...   [tags: World War II, Germany, British, History]

Disadvantages of War

- The thought of a child being sent off to war is very upsetting. The first excerpt of this week’s collection of letters clearly shows that the 15-year old writer was not ready for the responsibilities of being a United States soldier. He existed for only 18 years on earth, dying at the age equivalency of a high school senior, such as I. I believe people shouldn’t be sent away to war, unless their age permits them to do so as well as their own free will. One compliments the other.

- Perceptions of War One of the most interesting conflicts of perception, in my mind, is that of opposing soldiers in war.
