read the quote and answer the 3 questions

"Our attack pattern was: barrage a hill with bombs and shells, move up the foot soldiers, hold it against counterattacks, fight down the reverse slope, then start on the next one. We would attack during the day, dig in for the night--not for sleep, but for safety. A hole was never deep enought when the Japanese started their barrage. And then, they would come, a screaming banzai or a single shadow."

    Is there more to this passage? What you posted says nothing about the long nights on Okinawa.

  • history-URGENT -

    they probably felt:
    scared
    alert
    hopeless
    observant
    desperate
    intimidated
    discouraged

    They were scared at night and had to remain alert. They had to observe throughout but sometimes they were hopeless in spite of best of motivation.They were not discouraged even though they were desperate at times.

    is this gooD?
