The nature of World War 1 was affected by many factors that achieved to alter the way it played out. Two of those major influences were leadership and technology. Although the improvement of war technologies where important. It is believed that leadership had a bigger impact on World War 1 than technologies did. I personally follow that believe.
France and Britain could draw men from the colonies while Russia had the largest army at the beginning of the war. Germany itself didn't have superior numbers but its army was far more equipped, well trained and organized more than its contemporaries. More men equaled more prolonged battles. Only the separate peace from Russia and inclusion of America in the war tipped the balance in the favor of the Entante. While the land battles took their toll on the manpower of countries, severely depleting it, the navy was more of a hindrance to enemies.
Mack (1975) in World Politics, entitled "Why Big Nations Lose Small Wars." Here the "asymmetrical" is simply defined as a significant strength of the gap between the conflicting parties in the conflict. "Strength" is widely equated here with the strength of the material, such as the number of soldiers is great, sophisticated weaponry, a developed economy, and so on. Although the concept was ignored at the time, the analysis of the Mack apparently fishing a renewed interest since the end of the cold war in the 1990s. In 2004, the U.S. military began to seriously reconsider the problem-a problem associated with asymmetric warfare.
The US and its allies believed that this would end the war on terror, but they were wrong. They did not think that, at the same time they were withdrawing troops from Iraq, another terrorist force was growing. It was called the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria. This terrorist group is different from the Taliban, as its influence was greater. The Western nation would had to deal with the mess that they had created in the first place, and this time it would not be as easy as sending in coalition

How the Civil War Affected the USA The Civil War is considered to be the most horrific yet influential wars in American History. While the American Revolution revolved around establishing the nation, the Civil War was about deciding the fate of the blossoming nation. But determining the fate of the nation came at a huge cost; approximately 620,000 American citizens lives were tragically lost during the barbarous conflict, which is equivalent to ¼ civilians whom went into combat never returned home. Unfortunately, the gruesome death toll wasn’t the only negative result of the battle. The war resulted in a massive economic cost which came to a staggering $5.2 billion dollars.
Introduction Technology and war are closely related as it shapes the strategies adopted by nations and also influence the outcome of the war . Technological advancements are also driven by war due to the perceived needs to stay ahead and stay relevant in the new era so as to provide a technological edge against potential adversaries2. Although technology employed during war does provide an advantage against potential adversaries, however, it does not always result in a decisive advantage or victory in war. As demonstrated during the Vietnam War in the 1960s, the US who are armed with far superior technology advantages over the Viet Cong (VC) forces had failed to capitalise on it to win a decisive war. As a result, the US fought a long and costly
Fellow activists, I’m here today to lead you in this protest for the abolishment of the United States Drone strikes. My name is Jackson and you may be wondering if I’m qualified to talk about drones but rest assured I am. I served for the US army in Iraq and Afghanistan from 2002-2007 and I have witnessed the devastating effects that the drones are having first hand. Most importantly, drones kill a huge number of innocent civilians, and we are now seeing an increased risk of our enemies retaliating and using drones against us, and on a more practical level as most of you will know the drone programme is extremely expensive especially in today’s economic environment. The most upsetting effect that drones are having is the killing of innocent civilians.
Hotel Rwanda directed by Terry George and released in 2004, is one of the films that most accurately depict the reality of the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. This genocide marks one of the most bloody and abrupt in the history of genocides where the Tutsi began slaughtering the Hutu. The story is told through the main character Paul Rusesabagina’s heroic acts as a hotel manager and his dedication to his family and people. The story centers on him and his family sheltering Hutu refugees at the Mille Colline Hotel in Kigali, resisting the Tutsi rebels as they began the massacre of Hutu families almost overnight. The film clearly portrays how and why the genocide began and it is through this that theoretical concepts such as ethnic violence and ethno-political mobilization can be drawn.
no2 one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget. The North has been known for having a larger amount of soldiers then the south (Confederates). So far this has been the most bloodiest most terrifying battle of all because yesterday was the most Americans that have died in two battles combined. We will always and forever remember this day as the worst day in the history. Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.
Gunpowder is one of the greatest breakthroughs, but whether it has helped or hurt the human race more is debatable. Guns allowed us to make hunting easier when it was essential to hunt to survive. On the other hand, gunpowder has also allowed the creation of huge weapons of mass destruction and has caused billions of deaths worldwide. On the other hand, men waged war before the invention of guns. So it can be said that guns were not the cause of all those deaths, they just made it easier to create destruction and death on a massive scale.
