      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Kreb's is received poorly after the war because he arrives two years after the war, which makes his return less significant compared to the other heroes who have already come home. Additionally, his stories are old news, meaning that people have already heard similar stories and are no longer interested. Therefore, all of these factors contribute to Kreb's poor reception after the war.
