    “War is hell” (O’Brien 1154). That simple line enlightens so much about what war is and how it is portrayed throughout this short story. The author contradicts himself as he tells the story, to make the point that every contradiction has a story in its own. Three of the most memorable quotes are, “…war is grotesque. But in truth war is also beauty” (1155). “War makes you a man; war makes you dead” (1155). Lastly, “In war you lose your sense of the definite, hence your sense of truth itself, … in…

    In November of 1955, the United States of America entered the Vietnam War. What would follow for the next two decades was a gruesome, unchecked state of warfare, that would leave even the most resilient soldiers broken down and demented. Units were, for the most part, unchecked by any higher power, and were left to commit atrocities at their own discretion. Tim O’Brien was one of these drafted soldiers in the war, and he writes about his experiences in The Things They Carried, a work of fiction…

    You won’t believe how badly this surprised the Germans! We captured Vimy Ridge within 3 days! I also find it amazing how we Canadians have won this battle despite the losses that the French and British armies suffered fighting this same one. Despite this I’ve still seen the unseeable: groups of badly injured men being transported to the hospital, which they would usually leave dead or without a limb.

A dense, misty fog floated through the trenches, adding to the sense of misery that already filled the deep, dark and gloomy jungle of Vietnam that was the “Khe Sanh War”. Jimmy stared at his rifle hopelessly; his spirit was gradually being chipped away by the humid, muddy and mosquito infected environment.…

If half of the soldiers died at Valley Forge that is not a chance that I am willing to take. If I was a father or a provider for my family, than i…
