Life of a Soldier
posted by Anonymous on .
Could you please give me some points, details explaining life of an average canadain soldier.
Ive jotted down a few, but if you could give me some more, that would help me loads.
Didn't get many hours of sleep
Poor Living Conditions
Had to stand out in the trenches daily, had to stand there and wait for like half an hour before dawn, waiting for German attack
Endless tedium of trench life, with mud filled landscape, unburied bodies and lice-ridden uniforms
Impossible to sleep because of all the noise of firing and shooting
Bombs blasting for hours, shelling going on
Also I don't know how to write thesis statement
I had before: Life for a Canadian soldier was very lonesome and stressful. Death was very near to them which made their lives traumatizing.
Those are all very good. I assume you're referring to World War I.
Yes I am. Ok thank you for that site, what exactly do I need to improve on the thesis statement I wrote?
I sort of reworded the question and made it into a thesis statement covering the main ideas.
Also could you please give me links to other sites, that tells you about the life of an average canadian soldier during the great war.
There is also a good book-Generals Die in Bed by Charles Yale Harrison if you want a realistic viewpoint from the soldiers in the trenches (This was based from his experiences in the war)
Ok. Thanks Brian for your help:)
