Unbroken is a book about an Olympic runner named Louis Zamperini who’s plane crash in the pacific after being shot down by japanese aircrafts. Him and the surviving crew members have to survive on their little dingy boat hoping for rescue. Then are later caught by japanese and then have to survive camps until the war ends. Books are used to tell a story but also to give a very very good description of that story. They leave a lot for imagination since most of the time there are now visuals and you have to think of the places yourself.
This is a documentary on the battle of midway. The battle of midway is one of the first battles for japan that took place during WWII. The goal for Americans during this battle was to get midway in order to have a refueling station, but Japan had the upper hand in almost every fight. Documentaries are more like a news article with a lot of visuals. Yes they do tell a story but it's more factual than anything else. A documentary is more to tell exactly what happen and not leave any details out.
This was a biographical war drama film focusing on the war experiences of Desmond Doss. Desmond Doss was a medic in WWII who never wanted to use a gun, and never did use a gun. This man saved many people's lives in the battle of okinawa. Desmond Doss was also the first conscientious objector to be awarded the medal of honor. Films are able to do things that most other sources are not able to do. They are able to tell a story while giving a visual of the story which is something a book or a write up can’t do. With a book you can imagine the story but you can’t actually see it. The movie just really brings the story to life.
The impact of gas masks in WW II these photos depict citizens of all ages in masks most likely afraid of a chemical attack. There isn’t much to say other than that these photos are horrific. Photojournalism in times of war like this do just that. They do a very good job at showing the true horror of war times. They show us how everyone is affected in times of war, but they also leave a lot of room for interpretation which is why I really like these pictures.
Why we love WWII this journalist goes on the give us reasons to why exactly WW II is our favorite war. For one it is the war with most casualties so this means it has an aw affect like it brings a demonic kind of excitement. Then to nationalism WWII gives us that superiority complex since we were the ones that “won” the war for the rest of the world. This is obviously an opinion you can’t say that everyone feels this way about WWII, but it doesn’t represent WWII well. Talking about the casualties and how there are probably a lot of people that do feel that way about this war.
Summary and Reflection: This article goes over how there was more going on inside the ghetto than anyone would think.There was a huge rebellion against the Nazi Juggernauts. This rebellion went on for over a month and meant most certain death for the ones participating. 750 jew participated in this rebellion in order to free the rest of the jews in the ghetto. Although they failed in the end they should be remembered as heroes of hope. This article shows another side of the ghetto that maybe some people didn’t know. It shows that even though there was a giant mass watching over them, they still decided to fight in order to gain their freedom. This article helps to show people the hope, and the life these people had even though they were almost certain to die.
