This two day battle was an advantage for the Union, but still suffered many losses. The Union lost over 100 soldiers and had many casualties. General Sherman was able to achieve his mission, which was to destroy the Atlanta railroad lines and because of this the industrial city was vulnerable. By the end of the battle, both nations lost many troops. There was a total of 3,149 casualties.
But inflicting heavy damage on German forces, 7,00 killed, 10,000 wounded and 130,000 captured (thoughtco.com/worldwarii/operationdragoon). Operation Dragoon was the 36th Engineers final amphibious assault of World War II. They would continue to support the Allied units through three more
This is because the fall of Hong Kong lead America into joining the war, ultimately aiding the Allies into winning the war, defeating both Germany and Japan. The input of America’s position made it possible for the Allies’ victory, even when they were tired out and about to lose; America gave the Allies new and fresh soldiers, and a new range of weapons, ranging from the air force, the navy, to artillery. The fall of Hong Kong also showed the cracks within the League of Nations that they had been trying to hide and put up a cover
Richard and Elder (2008) define critical thinking as “The art of analyzing and evaluating thinking with a view to improving it”. In this research paper, I will cover the importance of being proficient on applying critical and creative thinking process. Moreover, I will provide assertive examples using Major General (MG) David Petraeus’s critical thinking and problem solving process experiences during the invasion of Mosul, Iraq. The Mosul’s invasion was full of suitable and deprived decisions.
The weakening of legions and Rome’s reliance on outside mercenaries would ultimately be the final straw in the crumbling of the once great Roman Empire. The last breath of the Roman Empire was taken on 476 A.D. as another Germanic Tribe, the Goths, sacked Rome for the second time in less than 100
So how did this great empire fall? No one thing made it collapse, but rather several factors that slowly deteriorated Rome until it was no longer sustainable. First, Several internal factors led to the downfall of Rome. One was the moral deterioration in the Roman citizen. As Livy,
Throughout history of our great and powerful country, the United States, we have fought many wars and have recruited many military personnel. For example, during World War l alone 4,734,991 service members were on active duty. Tragically however, there were also a total of 53,402 battle deaths that occurred. Of these casualties whenever possible the remains were identified and sent home back to their families for a funeral. Sadly this was not always possible because some fallen soldiers were unidentified and not given a proper burial.
Just America or Just in War? Throughout the decades, history has recorded all the wars in which the United States has participated in. Some may consider that the United States’ participation in foreign affairs may have been cruel, or unnecessary; while in other cases, others find it essential for the United States to fight for the common good. Therefore, philosophers—in the pursuit of justice—have designed methods that dictate how a nation can justly engage into a war, one of this methods being the Just War theory.
Some historians claim that there are as many as a hundred political and non-political interweaving reasons that led to the collapse of Roman Empire. One of the important political causes is the division of the Empire into two empires, the west (Latin) and the eastern (Greek, later known as the Byzantine empire) in 284 A.D. by Diocletian. This division was adopted to protect the over-expanding empire and to defend its borders against the Barbarian attacks. This was achieved initially as the two empires synchronized responsibilities and strengthened each.
The Roman Empire was a powerful and has affected the world we live in today, but it was not always successful. The Roman Empire was at its greatest extent at the death of Emperor Trajan in 117 AD, when it included all the lands around the Mediterranean and extended to Britain, the Black Sea, and Mesopotamia.i At the Battle of Adrianople in 378 AD, the Eastern Emperor Valens was defeated and many historians agree that this marks the beginning of the end of the Roman Empire. ii “But the decline of Rome was the natural and inevitable effect of immoderate greatness. Prosperity ripened the principle of decay; the causes of destruction multiplied with the extent of conquest; and, as soon as time or accident had removed the artificial supports, the stupendous fabric yielded to the pressure of its own weight.
Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of The United States of America is quoted to have said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” (Benjamin Franklin). World War Two is a story of countries learning from their mistakes and not repeating them. The Dieppe Raid on the coast of France seemed like a well thought out plan to gain control over the coast, but in reality, it was a disaster. Due to the lack of planning put into the raid, the lives of many Canadian soldiers were lost. A plan that was created to outwit the opposition, lead to total disaster and humiliation.
Facts This case arose out of the consolidation of Lemon v Kurtzman from Pennsylvania and Early v Di Censo from Rhode Island. In the two cases, the state had adopted laws that required the state to provide aid to church related elementary and secondary schools. The Rhode Island’s statute provided for financial support for non-public schools by supplementing 15% of teachers’ salaries. The Pennsylvania statute provided funding for salaries, textbooks and instructional materials for non-public schools.
Although the beginning of the second Punic war, Hannibal seemed to be leading victorious throughout Italy after crossing the Alps into Roman territory, the outcome of the Punic war led to the downfall of Carthage. During the second Punic war, Hannibal fought the Romans in the battle of Cannae, where “Poylbius estimates Hannibal had close to 40,000 infantry and 10,000 cavalry versus the Roman force of 80,000 infantry and 8,000 cavalry” (History Extra, 2009). It was one of the most famous battles in military history and is said to be taught in modern military colleges because of it's significance. Hannibal was outnumbered but used his cunning tactics to close his troops around the charging Roman soldiers to slaughter them in this battle.
Imagine a young boy ambitious not to let down his family, like his father did, but to be a hero. A boy determined to not make the same mistakes as his father. Now imagine this boy as a man not only letting down his family, but the entire country of America. This man was Benedict Arnold, who was an American General and who became a traitor during the American revolution. Two marriages, a need for money, and a sad childhood weighed down Benedict causing him to make possibly the worst decision of his life, turning to the British side during the war.
In a decision made by the United States Supreme court, it was decided “that motor vehicles deserve a reduced expectation of privacy (Atkinson, 2011). This decision is in response to the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which states that “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” The case of Elliot Watson delves into why no warrant was needed to search the trunk of his car. The arrest of Mr. Watson and the search of his vehicle were valid.
