Sunrise Over Fallujah
Walter Dean Myers
Person vs. self; Robin deals with the morals of warfare and killing innocent people internally. He is torn over the sadness of death, and whether it is really necessary to kill all of these civilians to win the war and help his country.
Another major theme is bravery. In the beginning of the novel, Robin is not courageous and does not understand what it takes to be a real soldier. As the story progresses, he learns a little more every day of what it takes to fight for your country and he is much braver than he was when he first enlisted.
