Storyboard Text

  • "Then around the corner of a side street come an old woman, her head covered by a tattered shawl. She began to talk to the man in the turret of the car. She was pointing to the roof where the sniper lay"
  • "The other sniper seeing the cap and rifle fall thought he had killed his man"
  • "Then the sniper turned over the dead body and looked into his brothers face"
  • This shows dramatic irony because the sniper did not expect the woman to be working for the other side. This shows that both sides of the war had normal people working for them. 
  • This is dramatic irony because the enemy sniper doesn't know that he has been tricked.
  • This shows situational irony because the reader nor the narrator know or expect it to be his brother that he has killed.
