Comparison of WW1 pieces

In this unit we have been studying the back story about soldiers participating in WW1. And the pieces we either read or watched, all had a lot in common, but also different in their own ways. In all the stories, they talked about the disaster of the war, and how hard it was to actually have to witness the things the soldiers did. They all felt forced to have to serve in the war, and go into combat, just because either their school told them to fight for their country, or they thought it would be “fun” to do with friends, which obviously was the wrong idea. In the 2 texts we read, All Quiet on the Western Front, and Soldiers Home, they had a lot in common with the going home experiences. Them being home, they felt trapped and it feeling different than leaving post war. Overall, these pieces have a lot in common, just depends on what they focus on.
