07.02 Modern Warfare and Its Legacy: Assessment
Transcript of 07.02 Modern Warfare and Its Legacy: Assessment
By: Jakobe Roberts
The battle has just begun and I do not know what to do, and both Americans and Germans are getting killed and being wounded. I fear this battle will mark the beginning to a very bloody end. We just release some gas, because enemy was near, we had to do something to stop them.
The battle has gotten more intense than ever. Some of the soldiers and I have gotten closer to are not motivated, so we started to pray hard for self-determination in order to survive. Everywhere I look there are dead bodies or a terrible smell; smell of bodies that the gases have destroyed.
As time goes by, some of our men have been loosing faith and the self determination to live in the final outcome of this war. But I stand true to God in leading me to victory in hopes of seeing my family again. Air-crafts are flying over us; do they not see us and hear us screaming, oh my. Thank God they did here us. This aircraft, the Zeppelin, not only picked us up to carry us to another battlefield, but it protected us while in the air from harm.
The trench we built has help protect most of us, but several has been killed. This is crazy, I fear for my life each minute, even having a machine gun in my hand, because I know others have them as well. What I wouldn't do to have my mommy right now!!! I am starting to miss my family a lot.
My General has finally came to see about us in this gigantic tank. He told me to join my fellow soldiers in the other trench we had built. But I was thinking, " well how am I going to get there?" The general said when I asked," You are going have to take the submarine underwater, so you can not be see. I have heard that the submarines smell of the rusty musk of dried blood and rotting flesh I am also very nervous for I fear that I may never return to my General to thank him.
After experiencing the submarines and the trenches, being in war can be a learning experience. They also take the time to celebrate holidays; for example the Christmas Truce. But who cares about that; if I make it out alive my message back home would be:
"Never think of war as something to be proud of, as I gaze into the eyes of men younger than me I realize that they are just as nervous and scared of never making it back home as I was and that at any time you could be the one laying lifeless on the cold hard ground as more blood is shed."
I decided to fight for our nation because I thought I could handle it then, but now it is a glorious time since we have won the first half of this battle, more troopers are coming to our aid and now everyone is feeling the high of victory, for now that is.
As the long nights begin to roll around and needing plenty of rest, but I still need to keep a close eye out for the intruders because you never know what can happen at any given moment. As I slowly drift into a deep sleep horrific images play through my head so instead I sketch to pass the time.
Since the attack from the apposing forces failed this has given me and my comrades a boost of hope that we may be able to emerge victorious. This is just the boost that we need.
The Hundred days of offense has commenced and I am hopeful that this will end the war. I just hope I will be able to live through this and I think I can.
