Storyboard Text

  • Signpost: Contrast and Contradiction 
  • "Even though both sides' forward forward lines were in clear view across the blasted terrain of No Man's Land, soldiers rarely  saw the enemy"(33).
  • Signpost: Contrast and Contradiction
  • "Sometimes, if they got close enough without being detected, the men might lob grenades into the enemy trenches, then hightail it back across No Man's Land to safety"(39).
  • Mindset: Fixed
  • "That night, all along the western front, the Germans solders enters the trenches carrying their weapons as well as some items their commanders would have frowned upon had they known"(56).
  • This makes me wonder if the infantry even fired any rounds.
  • Word Gap: Insuperable
  • "... 'an unthinking mass pushing forward until they were literally annihilated by the insuperable density of the opposing firepower'"(43).
  • This makes me wonder how they got across without being heard or seen and run back without being shot or injured.
  • Summary: SWBS
  • This demonstrates 'Why should I bother' because If they run out into No Man Land then they know that they most likely die.
  • Book Club Questions
  • Definition: Impossible to overcome Technical Term? Yes
  • France and Germany wanted to stop fighting because Christmas was coming around, But their commanders were not letting them rest, so they brought stuff into the trenches to remind them of home.
  • Why would the soldiers not listen to their commander? What might have made the soldiers stop fighting?
