The Bangladesh war

Warfare

During the Bangladesh war, many people decided to flee their homes and look for a new life. Bomb shells were falling and bullets were flying. If anyone was caught fleeing the country, they would be shot on sight. This was an awful time for the people because they were forced to bring the mere necessities, that means no useless items. Like stated before, many people were killed because of the war. Wether they were killed by the military, or just killed by natural causes, this left a void. This is a void that can only be filled by the family member they lost. If it was the father, than the family would not only be heartbroken, bout they wouldn't have an effecient way to make money. Th people who were lost in this war will be remembered .
