Page & Tone

                Page 35’s tone is very powerful, descriptive, and honest.  Trebonyak describes his experience in Normandy the best on this page.   He says, “But the faces of the three dead soldiers at the top of our dugout are staring down at us,” it makes me feel like I am right there next to them.  Also, in a normal war book, the author wouldn’t get as honest, they wouldn’t tell the exact effects of a weapon, such as Trebonyak says, “the shrapnel hits you and burns right through you,” to be honest, before I read this book, I had no idea what White Phosphorus even was.
