Ww1 Letter To Father

Good Essays
Dear mom and dad, Finally, I have the chance to drop you a few lines. I miss you guys so much. How are you guys doing? For me it's not really that great. Despite everything I recall how excited I was going for the war. I still remember how I was reeking with curiosity to what's to happen. But now I don't know anymore. The trenches are very narrow, just room for me and Joe to push by one another. In front of each trench is a baricade made of sandbags, these are more or less bullet proof, but afford little protection from shell fire. We fill them up and they look after us. I know that sounds funny but it's true.We don't generally utilize sand, sometimes it is simply soil and earth. If the Germans or the Austrians fire at us and the bullet

    It is about 6 o’ clock in the morning, and we are in the rest trenches due to continuous firing from a rifle gun and a machine gun. It’s been going on for approximately four hours. There is a short silence and another splutter of about 20 rounds. I turn to my side while sitting in the trench and in doing so, I dislodge some dirt from the side of the trench which of course falls into my ear and mouth. I am going to take a nap, but, I will be fully dressed because the situation I am in demands for…

    right and wrong in all of my decisions. I've tried making decisions on my own, thinking that I didn't need help but you were still there for me waiting to guide me into the right direction. You are my mentor, my inspiration, and most importantly my father. I can remember you telling me that I didn't know what I had to appreciate everything that is in my life. Now that I'm older, I realized what I do have and how much I should be grateful for it. I'm blessed with everything I have and what's available…

    4/22/15 Dearest Mother, Fighting in this war is not what I thought it was going to be like. The trenches where fellow soldiers and I are located smell horrid. Bodies are rotting around us and the thick scent of them are filling the already unclean air. It feels like pain in my nose as I am writing this. I am watching men get killed left and right. Today the Germans used tons of lethal chlorine gas on us. We were up against it, it was terrible. We had to urinate on handkerchiefs to prevent the gas…

    Dear Father, It is not without some great deal of thought and a heavy burden on my heart that I write this letter to you. I doubt you will be surprised, perhaps even a little depressed to learn that I have left with no intention of returning. Save your thoughts and feelings for yourself and Harry and know that I will be well cared for by Frank. I know you do not approve of him and his wandering ways because he is a sailor that he can offer the world outside of our little community which I look…

    civilians alike were killed, and with no one great end-result for any of the central powers, it goes to show the uselessness of war. It is unmistakable to see these facts after reading All Quiet On the Western Front, a novel labeling the horrors of WW1 for what they are. The book is of a young soldiers experience in the trenches, and the indignities he suffered for the illusion of glory in battle. Overall, what can be said about the dismay, the terror that is evident in not just this war, but any…
