441 Words 2 Pages
Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny Got His Gun and Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried are both superb novels that talk about war in ways other novels are unable to. In Johnny Got His Gun readers get a glimpse of what goes on in the mind of a fallen soldier who does not believe in the war but has been hurt beyond repair because of the war. This novel shows how the war can take control of the lives of people and how unfair the control is and that the people are protected from the truth, from the reality of the war. The novel also represents how politics glorify the war and its soldiers but in reality, they are hiding the painful truth and those who have sacrificed their lives seem to have no right to do as they wish even as a reward for their sacrifices.
