Analyzing Author's tone in "Band of Brothers" Pg 93
The page I have chosen to analyze was page 93. Upon reading, I noticed the author was very detailed in the battle scenes. For example when talking of the German counter-attack, "Ramirez went back and returned with two bazooka rounds, stumbling and crashing around. To Tipper's horror, he said he ahd removed the pins (with the safety pin gone, an armed bazooka rocket would explode if dropped from two or three feet)." Ambrose is able to capture the essence of war and bring it right to the novel, placing the reader in those very same situations as that of the soldiers.
