World War I Term Paper

… " (Adriane Ruggiero, page xviii-xix) A group of strongly nationalistic individuals was able to convince the Japanese that their problems will end only if they go to war. Japan believed that it was the most important power in the Pacific and Western Europe was trying to minimize its power. Japan saw Great Britain and the United States as their bigger enemies.

After Japan conquered the Eastern colonies of Great Britain, Holland and France, it ruled an empire which extended from South Asia to East Indies and incorporated islands from the South Pacific. As a result of this expansion; Japan was able to provide its armies with the needed weapons. Japan and Germany agreed to be allies and to support one another if a country will…. [read more]

World War Two Term Paper

… Russia and America emerged as the new super powers of the world while Britain was relegated to a third rate power. Many Asian nations (India, Philippines, Burma, etc.) got their freedom from their colonizers. The United Nations Charter was signed on June 1945 (San Francisco) as a world peace organization to supervise international security and promotion of human rights.


We are still haunted by the legacy of the world war two and now that we are in the shadow of the war it is plainly obvious that it was one of the most foolish acts of mankind. (Self-destruction) In the history of the world the harrowing experiences of the Had Britain (as a super power) been a little more prudent and watchful over the…. [read more]

Keegan and Ferguson do not specifically mention the importance of World War I developments of tanks; however, they discuss of the extensive use of tanks during World War II.[footnoteRef:19] For the airplane, in particular, this was revolutionary: during World War I, the airplane went from a flimsy machine that was not taken seriously by military commanders to a dangerous means of reconnaissance, pursuit and strategic bombing.[footnoteRef:20] Weinberg and Overy both mention World War 1 developments[footnoteRef:21], though Overy's assessment of World War I aircraft is less congratulatory, essentially stating that the beginning of World War II saw inadequate airpower….

World War II Essay

… com). He then proceeded to identify the "Aryan" race as the only legitimate ethnicity in Germany, making Jews and Gypsies fair game for harassment, persecution, and ultimately death. Hitler was charismatic in his fiery speeches, but insists that one of the "most vital aspects of the power behind the Third Reich" was propaganda, which became the ideal tactic to indoctrinate and control the German people. Recurrent themes of Hitler's propaganda included: a) hatred towards Jews and Gypsies; b) rage against the sanctions imposed in the Treaty of Versailles as the cause of all German's problems; c) promotion of aggressive nationalism; d) the promotion of the Ayan race as the pure, inevitably perfect society for Germany; and e) the promotion of the fear that communist….

War of the Worlds by HG Research Paper

… War of the Worlds by H.G.

Wells' "The War of the Worlds" is certainly a thought-provoking novel that addresses a series of divisive topics concerning society and the degree to which people believe they understand the concept of power. The writer provides readers with an account involving an unnamed narrator who generally feels confident concerning the power of humanity and of the British Empire in particular. While Wells has the ability to look at things from a more general point-of-view, the protagonist seems to be obsessed with introducing his own point-of-view concerning things that happened as Martians attacked Earth.

In order to gain a better understanding of the narrator's perspective concerning what happens in the novel, one must first understand why Wells chose this individual…. [read more]

World War II -- Eastern Term Paper

… In a fatal display of hubris and thoughtlessness, Hitler split his forces, sending them north and south. This split resulted in the overextension of his forces and delays that pushed the invasion into the devastating Russian Winter. Spread thin and inadequately prepared for fighting through the extreme cold and snow of Russia, German forces suffered their greatest casualties and ultimately endured the failure of their massive invasion.

As all consulted sources agree, German forces never recovered from the failure of Barbarossa. The concentration of German forces on this Eastern Front due to Hitler's obsession with conquering Russia caused the Germans to all but abandon the Battle of Britain, thus saving Britain from certain defeat. Furthermore, the defeat contributed to the mutual distrust between Hitler and…. [read more]

Stalin knew that German aggression is inevitable and tried to prepare the country to the great war. He also knew that France and Britain would try not to participate in the war and let Hitler whatever he…. [read more]

Mexican-American War -1848) the Great Essay

… In this regard, Huston emphasizes that, "In their search for an understanding of what the future might bring under the Wilmot prohibition, southerners were misled by classical economic theory; and thus they read into the Wilmot Proviso a more grim outcome than was likely."

Although history provides 20-20 hindsight, it appears that few observers at the time could have predicted the unintentional impact that the Wilmot Proviso would have on America's historical course. As Huston concludes, "By this route, by leading southerners to miscalculate the effects of a prohibition against slavery's geographical expansion, Malthusian population theory, and classical political economy in general, helped push the South to secession and the nation to civil war."

The Popular Sovereignty proposal to allow voters to decide on slavery…. [read more]

War and Death Research Paper

… War and Death

When considering the causes and outcomes of war, oftentimes it can be helpful to compare and contrast seemingly disparate cases, because this comparison can often reveal underlying processes, strategies, and assumptions that would have remained hidden otherwise. This is why, for example, one may consider the United States' more recent occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan alongside its actions in the Korean War; though these cases are separated by a substantial expanse of time, examining the causes behind these conflicts as well as the effects reveals that the conception of warfare as a means of statecraft has not changed substantially in the intervening time. This leads one inevitably to reconsider the state of South and North Korea's relationship today, because these two actors…. [read more]

Factors which caused Britain to Lose WWII

Factors which Caused Britain to Lose WW11

The Great Britain lost the World War 11 though it had enjoyed the portion of eminence in the period after the World War 1. The reasons are classified under two main heads; lack of foresightedness and inability to face the opponent. The other countries had made strong technological development which paved the way for their success.

Social Impact of Cold War Essay

… Innocent civilians are often at extreme risk in the battles for gathering information or in the battles run by remote. In an interesting way, it might also be seen that this kind of distance campaign strategy is like the way some see the U.S. As contributing to the near collapse of the world economy. The U.S.'s lax financial rules and regulations pulled in other countries and set them up for many of the challenges they now face -- many of which are bringing about social and cultural unrest. It clearly would not be difficult for terrorists or even other nations to see this as an extension of the type of attitude that America picked up when it did its victory dance after the melting of….

World War I Causes Term Paper

… He hoped that the conflicts among the involved nations would be settled through negotiations and dialogues. However, as the events occurred, it appeared unavoidable for America to engage itself in the fighting and help its allies. The main causes of the entrance of America into the World War I were the sinking of Lusitania, the Zimmerman telegram and the submarine warfare (America in the Great War, 2000, para. 3).

The Germans sank Lusitania, a passenger ship, using a U-boat in 1915. The death of about 1200 innocent people in this mournful event was the major reason why America decided to come into the Great War formally. Secondly, the Zimmerman telegram proved to be another reason for the entrance of America into the War. It was…. [read more]

Civil War Term Paper

… ¶ … Civil War

Most of us, no matter where we spent our early years in the United States, were taught a version of American history in which the Civil War (and, indeed, the decade leading up to it) were marked by first an antagonism and then a bellicosity between a universally slaveholding South and a universally non-slaveholding North. A more careful reading of the historical record, however, shows quite clearly that the picture is rather more complicated.

The issue of slavery was more complicated than the usual picture of it, which does not given sufficient weight to the economic perspective and which fails to examine the differences between slave-holding and non-slave-holding Southerners. Most histories of the Civil War also leave out the shifting dynamics…. [read more]

World War II Why Did This War Happen Essay

… ¶ … World War II Happen?

The world had barely stopped hemorrhaging from the ravages of the "War to End All Wars" when World War II broke out in 1939 following Germany's invasion of Poland. Given the bloody and enormously costly outcome of the First World War and the efforts by the international community to forge an international organization that could arbitrate potential conflicts between countries in the interim, some observers today might question how the Second World War could occur in the first place. To gain some fresh insights into this question and formulate accurate answers, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature concerning the origins of World War II, followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the….

First World War Term Paper

… The Eastern Front was the largest battlefield from World War I. Russia, and from 1916 Romania, fought on one side and Germany and Austria-Hungary on the other one. Also, on the Eastern Front trenches were built, but due to a lack of manpower warfare was more fluid. "Handicapping lengthy advances by either side, however, were the region's primitive transportation network and harsh winter conditions, on which successful offensive inevitably ground to a halt." (Spencer C. Tucker, Priscilla Mary Roberts, page 611)

After Russian troops invaded German Poland and East Prussia, in August 1914 Russia was defeated by Germany at Tannenberg. Germany needed to take two army groups from the Western Front to defend themselves from the Russian assaults. This action caused the defeat of Germany…. [read more]

… World War I

Great Britain's Failure to Use Its Navy to Its Full Effectiveness in World War I

As World War I began, Great Britain was considered the supreme power in terms of naval force. Yet, the German Navy had been upgrading enough to make it of significant British concern during the war. In particular, the use of German U-boats as a threat to both military and merchant vessels complicated Great Britain's naval choices. Though many history texts take it for granted that Britain was the stronger of the two navies, the only major naval battle (at Jutland) between the two forces resulted in heavy British losses. While the Royal Navy had both experience and opportunity to strike more forcefully at Germany by sea, they…. [read more]

World War One: Causes and Concerns Term Paper

… Causes of World War One and the Treaty of Paris

The causes of World War One are both intricate and nuanced and it is difficult to point to a single cause or even a few collective causes which led to this war. Rather a complexity of problems and issues are what caused the outbreak of World War One. In many ways World War One was an utter surprise to the entire global community. The century following the end of the Napoleonic wars was marked with peace, perhaps the most peace since the Roman Empire had fallen. As one scholar remarks, "In the first years of the twentieth century, Europe believed it was marching to a golden, happy, and prosperous future. But instead, complex personalities and…. [read more]

Austria Hungry Term Paper

… World War I

The Reasons for Austria-Hungary Involvement in WWI

The reasons for World War I are many and multifaceted. Each of the major countries involved felt that they were completely justified in declaring war against their rivals. Austria-Hungary especially felt that they were justified due to the assignation of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne.

Austria-Hungary's desire for security played a prominent part in the start of war in 1914. Even though he was the leader of an increasingly fossilized and out-of-date government, the Habsburg emperor Franz Josef was an expansionist. In 1907, he conquered Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnian Serbs disliked Austrian rule and set out to defend independent Serbia. It was one of these Bosnian Serb factions, the Black Hand that killed the…. [read more]

World War II Russian Campaign Term Paper

… He had to send troops to Greece and Yugoslavia as well and it is very important that even there the reason was Italian defeat in Greece. Hitler was very disappointed in Mussolini and had to help his weak ally, which was not able to capture such small country as Greece was. Hitler considered African victories as political but not military success. He needed Rommel's divisions in the east but not far away in Africa. He was sure that those troops he had sent to Africa could preserve Italians from defeat and would help defeating British troops in the whole Mediterranean region because he planned to capture Greece and Yugoslavia where British positions were rather strong.

When preparing troops to invade Russia Hitler thought he would…. [read more]

… The planning for the post war phase was never given a considerable importance, and it started only two months before the outbreak of the guerilla war. The Office for Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance (O.R.H.A) was headed by Lieutenant General Jay Garner who had whatsoever, little knowledge about the Arab culture and nation building. Similarly other participants of the program were also not qualified for it. This action was taken intentionally, in order to exclude those people who were well qualified and had a significant knowledge of the Arab political experts. The U.S. think tank believed that there was a little chance of a new democratic government to survive. They were not prepared to meet the political needs of the post war Iraq. Hence, they neglected….

World War I Development of Imperialism Term Paper

… World War I

Development of imperialism at the second half of the nineteenth century had clear features of unavoidable future war, imperialist war for colonial domination. After Berlin Congress of 1878 it became clear that unified Germany would never agree on the role of European industrial superpower without any considerable colonial possessions. In addition, there were other countries with imperial ambitions: Russian Empire, Japan in Asia and the United States in Western Hemisphere.

Until the beginning of WWI, the U.S.A. had indirect relation to European politics and European conflicts, as its major interests were concentrated in Western hemisphere. By the beginning of the twentieth century, the U.S.A. turned into regional leader and developing imperial power. American fruit companies quickly occupied Latin American markets and by…. [read more]

Germany's Failure in World War Essay

… New Brunswick, NJ: Transaction Publishers.]

Fall of Italy further blew Germany as it had to provide information regarding Italian bombers and D-Day invasion. Germany also had concentrated on developing V2 rocket, which had not been developed yet as much of the time had been wasted in Russia and North Africa along with resources. In 1945, Berlin was conquered by Russian troops and Germany had finally been defeated.


Germany failed because of its flawed war strategy. It wasted its resources and time. Although Hitler was successful in invading several European regions, it did not have the ability to deal with prolonged war.

Europe After World War II Essay

… The Commission was believed to be in a unique position to manipulate both domestic and international pressures on national governments to advance the process of European integration, even where governments might be reluctant. This contrasted with realist explanations of IR, which focused exclusively on the international role of states. Neo-functionalists used the concept of spillover to explain how, once national governments took the initial steps towards integration, the process took on a life of its own and swept governments along further than they anticipated going.

2. Self-defense (Falklands)

Self-defense is one of the most contentious spheres of the exercise of force, and many instances abound which possibly depict a predicament with finding what are the conventions, and what about enforcing them. Since it prohibits the exercise of force, the U.N deed certainly identifies two scenarios wherein the application of force is allowed. International Law has recognized years ago that each state possesses the prerogative to protect itself, if required through force. This prerogative of self-defense is established in the U.N. charter: Article 51 states that the charter in no manner damages the "inbuilt" privilege of self-protection during an organized assault.

… Remaking the World After the First World War

This study examines and considers two different views of the peacemakers at Versailles following the First World War. This work specifically will consider how these historians can have different views of the same historical event. The work of Margaret Macmillan entitled "Making War, Making Peace: Versailles, 1919" states that the observation of it being "harder to make peace than war was, as one might expect of someone so witty, that of Georges Clemenceau, prime minister of France at the end of the First World War and during the peace conference that followed." (2005, p.1)

Macmillan writes that the decisions concerning the peace settlements were made under a great deal of pressure since there was fear that unless…. [read more]

However, the siege and the war itself failed to sustain and maintain the effort that supposedly control the enemy, and politics was evidently holding the system and the strategic war that division commander clearly outline to be won. Division officers were disappointed and helplessness had turned the officers into accepting their defeat and failure in meeting the goals of their command. While it is true that the Rules of Engagement worked effectively at the start and in the course of the war-according to norms and rules- the reason and purpose of the war was not…. [read more]

Lack of Mutual co-operation

Co-operation is another aspect that lacked in most parameters and paradigms of growth and development within the League of Nations. The nations that had aspired to be part of the League of Nations had not come to mutual understanding and co-operation. Because of this, when it came to handling sentimental issues within and between nations, there were perceived differences. For instance, the small nations never came to solid agreement with the powerful nations. On the other hand, the leading nations could not have mutual understanding with other nations in order to strike collaboration deals. The leading nations had differing interests other than those of international perspective. For instance, France became a member of the League of Nations in order to…. [read more]
