In World War 2 there was a lot of similarities and differences in the strategies and tactics used in each theater of War. The leaders of each theater all had some different ideas for strategies and tactics.

In “Battle Royale”, the first chapter of Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, the chapter uses a variation of dialect in the narrator’s tone of voice throughout the reading to carry out his position of a past he was naive of. The narrator takes his reader on a flashback of a time he was invited to give his high school graduation speech at a gathering where he unknowingly would be a part of a circus act in a room full of white citizens before he may present his speech. “I wanted to deliver my speech and he came at me as though he meant to beat it out of me.” (1216) Over and over again throughout his battle in the ring he thought of nothing more but to say it. Henry Louis Gates “Signifying Monkey” should be applied to this short
When someone brings a knife to a gunfight, they lose, every time. Also if they go against two people and they are only one person, they will lose. An example of this was the last major battle of the American Revolution. Lord Cornwallis, a British officer with 8,000 redcoats, was the one person. The patriots and their ally; France, were the other two people. The "fight" was the battle of Yorktown, the last major battle of the American Revolution. At the battle of Yorktown, Britain lost the battle, as would be assumed. For this reason and others, Cornwallis ' defeat was inevitable and was essential to the patriots ' victory at Yorktown.

Since this battle there have been many roaring debates as to whether or not Andrew Jackson should be president due to the fact that people were elected for being heroes of war. Although General Jackson was considered a war hero in his time, with the knowledge we have today, it’s questionable that he would of still been considered the hero he was thought of then. Andrew Jackson fought for the Americans in the battle of New Orleans to defend New Orleans against the British in one of the most pointless battles of the century, where nothing was lost but nothing was gained other than military status for General Jackson and a song we as Americans

The American Revolution set the background for the modern nation state as well as molding the modern Army. Both countries have many differences and similarities, ranging from the individuals fighting these wars to tactics and strategies they used to win. These countries shared the same idea of freedom and independence, the difference is they used different methods of accomplishing this goal. It’s difficult to pin point which country chose the best method, but we compare some of the facts and take a deeper look as to what was transpiring in both of these Revolutions. In the 18th Century the main problem the Army had was manpower. At that time the remedy for this problem was drafting the poor, uneducated and less fortunate members of society.
