E.g. You may have chosen:
Compare and contrast how the writers explore ideas of human frailty in Regeneration and Journey’s End.
Both writers focus on the mental effects of war and how damaging these can be on the emotional behaviour of the men. However, the writers are concerned with demonstrating that such ‘frailty’ is not a sign of weakness but a natural human response to such extreme conditions.
Compare and contrast the treatment of human frailty in “Regeneration” and “Journey’s End”. To what extent to the writers present such frailty sympathetically?
Compare and contrast how the writers explore the significance of ‘manliness’ in the trenches of World War One in Regeneration and Journey’s End.
Both writers explore how ideas of masculinity and manliness are blurred during World War One, showing that the expectations of true ‘manliness’ were impossible to achieve in the circumstances.
Explore the treatment of Manliness in “Regeneration” and “Journey’s End”, comparing how the texts question this contemporary value.

Write one or two sentences summing up what your argument is going to be.
