Reaction Paper #3
Gary Stansberry
I decided to do this reaction paper on the World War I Trench Diary because I found it very interesting. The beginning of this document describes the feeling of pages from a 100-year-old book, written in at the beginning of World War I. Describing the book feeling gives the reader a sense of how old this book really is, and how interesting it must have been to discover it and read straight from it. The first entry is dated back in 1914, and describes the feelings ...view middle of the document...

He says that all he sees is remains of battle, and he’s had enough. This makes me feel bad for him and everyone else involved because they had no choice, I am sure they would have rather been home with their families, but they are fighting for freedom instead. The next line reads that he ends his entry with him going to write his mother. This makes me feel sad for him because he misses his family I’m sure, but he knows how important he is to this movement. His story in this article ends by telling us that he died six weeks later. This means he never saw his mother again, and all she had of him was that letter he wrote. I feel bad for his mother, but I am sure she feels pride along with her despair. The next part takes up a lighter note, saying that sometimes they played soccer while they were bored. This makes me feel better because knowing they were able to have fun amongst the battles means that it was more worthwhile. They were fighting for freedom, but they established comradery and were able to have fun. This piece started off sad, but ended on a high note and I think it was a great document on WWI.
