Fallen Angels Book Review

Extracts from this document...


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.

  1. Blood brothers

    In the beginning, the story takes place in the 1960s and in the end the 1990s. There are two out pointed environments in the story. There is a working-class environment and an upper-middle-class environment. That is seen by the way the main-characters speak.

  2. Dulce est Decorum est and For the Fallen

    In Binyon's poem the soldiers 'went with songs to the battle', suggesting their fearlessness and gaiety. 'They were young, straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow'. This phrase conveys an admiration for the almost divine soldiers who seem to be the incarnation of some hero from a child's tale: powerful, handsome and determined men who save the world.
