Slaughter House 5

Slaughter House 5

World War II has been explored in many books and films which offer a broad number of views on the war. One Such book is Slaughterhouse Five, by Kurt Vonnegut. Kurt Vonnegut fought for the United States in World War II. He was a German Prisoner of War, and witnessed the fire bombing of Dresden, Germany. However, the book centers on a character named Billy. Billy is not built to be a soldier; he is weak and not a fighter. Billy is also captured as a prisoner of war, and is sent to Dresden. During this period of time, Billy has gone crazy. He travels through time, to when he is abducted by aliens. They teach him many things about life. Billy also survives the bombing of Dresden, and is senile the remainder of his life.
World War II was a very horrible war. There was much loss on both sides of the fighting. One event, in which 135,000, possibly more, people were killed, was the fire bombing of Dresden, Germany, by the USAF and the RAF. This death total is much more than that of Pearl
