The second reaction Paper deals with Eugene Sledges, With the Old Breed and will also be 3-5 pages in length. The questions I want you to keep in mind and work on in the paper are: How did Sledges experience in combat change his view of the Japanese soldiers he was fighting? What affect did Sledges experience fighting in the Pacific have on him when he returned from the war? Are people more aware of the effects of war on soldiers now? (Due December 3) (Citations from the book are required!)
