Fallen Angels Book Review

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Hate to Love, Love to Hate It is said, "All is fair in love and war." In the book Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers, Perry is sent to the Vietnam War where he is stationed in the Alpha Company. Here he meets Peewee, Lobel, Monaco, Brunner, Brew, and others. They find that even in war, there can always be a brotherly connection. These men come together as friends and as brothers to conquer the war and their fears together. Throughout the book, there is a distinct theme of togetherness, curse words, and many examples of good Christian values. ...read more.

In the book, they experience sticking together as a group and as brothers, use foul language, and Christian values. We can benefit from reading this book because we know that with all of this, we can learn how difficult the war is and the emotions that happen. After all, "All is fair in love and war..." ?? ?? ?? ?? Taylor Baumgart Ms. Reinert English-9 January 25, 2008 Essay ...read more.

  1. Dulce est Decorum est and For the Fallen

    This image of glorious warriors seems to be taken out of a happy ever-after story - rather than reality - to satisfy the audience. However, Owen's version the soldiers going to the fight are 'like old beggars under sacks', 'coughing like hags' 'blood shot' and 'drunk with fatigue'.

  2. Blood brothers

    He also has to work very hard to get through life, unlike Eddie, who is from the upper-middle-class. He is generous and he has a great vocabulary, so he knows many words, which Mickey doesn't know. Eddie is well-educated and has good manners.
