4). After the October Revolution in 1917, As dictator, Lenin fought in a civil war against the White Army, an anti-Bolshevik force. Lenin appointed Trotsky as the leader of the Red Army and Leon Trotsky began to play a much greater role in the Russian society (Leon Trotsky Biography par. 9). He led the Red Army to eventually defeat the White Army in 1920, and in 1922, USSR, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was created (History.com Staff par.
There was terrible wealth distribution to the rich were excessively rich whilst the poor where extremely poor. They would work in factories for log hours, which had no regard for health and safety. Therefore, work was very dangerous. They had an unbearable workload to earn a stable living. Due to their poor pay, they would live in cramped and humid houses making them extremely vulnerable to diseases like pneumonia.
He was very troubled throughout his life, and some experts believe this is a direct result of living in a broken home. In conclusion, Joseph Stalin 's Great Purges was one of the greatest genocides to ever occur in history. Joseph Stalin killed millions of people, mainly because they disagreed with his ideas for the Soviet Union. After examining Stalin 's purges, it was clear that the Great Terror had a major political impact, affected the lives of millions and the background of his upbringing was crucial in the study of this genocide. People should learn from this terrible event, so it never happens again because our world could not overcome something so horrific ever
It also altered many social customs disrupted trade, and made most people fearful of contact with strangers”(Bender 65). This quote tells us that the Plague caused issues with trade. This would make it very hard to find resources they did not have access to. The Plague also caused issues with Europe 's crops. For example, TheMidievalEra states “The plague was not only end of men, but animals and harvest too”(“Death”).
Indeed, by 1949 all Eastern European governments, except that of Yugoslavia, were run by hard-line Stalinist regimes, causing a great amount of fear in the Capitalist world as they saw Communism as threatening every aspect of their society. Moreover, in response to Churchill’s Iron Curtain speech, Stalin made the aggressive movement of setting up the Cominform, the purpose of which being to coordinate the actions between Soviet influenced Communist Parties. This act of strategic organisation caused the initiation of the Truman Doctrine, both of which can be said to have ‘hasten[ed] the division of the world into two blocs’ . One of the final acts of Stalin was the Berlin Blockade, which pushed tensions in international relations to a peak. By the end of the crisis in 1949 and indeed throughout the rest of Stalin’s reign, there was absolutely no communication
World War I had many far-reaching effects, including the rise of power by three of the most influential dictators of all time. The three dictators were Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, and Adolf Hitler. The dictators have many similarities including ruling with fear, mass killings, and the mindset that their country was superior of all. Also, the dictators rose to power as a result of not receiving the proper recognitions for their war efforts in WWⅠ. Joseph Stalin, a dictator of Russia, admitted that Russia would fall if and only if socialism in the country went from national to international.
When Hitler came into power in Germany’s democratic system of government was weak. There were people suffering a process of returning people to the place they were born and also returning refugees or military persons to the place they were born after World War 1. There were also lots of food shortages and very high unemployment rates which caused many people to starve and to be very poor due to having no job to source money from. The Great Depression had a rather large effect on the Weimar republic and this had an impact on the people and made them start to lose faith in the republic and this was because the treaty took most of Germany’s money and recourses. The German people were on food rations and they were in economic desperation and they
This downfall of society caused immense damage to the economy. As the population began to decline due to the deaths of all these people, there was a lack of farmers to plow fields, harvest crops, and produce other goods and services. This in turn affected the relationship of lords and peasants because the working peasants became more useful and in high demand; after learning this the peasants began asking for higher pay to work. This is how Europe was so affected by this plague, not only by death and disease, but in more questionably moral and economic aspects of
Customers died, which means that their debt did not get paid back, so it hurt the financial lenders. Guilds died or lost their craftsmen and could not replace them, so the public was out a lot of specialty services that they needed done. With all of the dying public this means that the demand for goods went down and the supply went up, so there was an oversupply of goods with no one to buy them, therefore, the prices were chopped. Along with all of these aspects of society falling apart, there were many groups in society causing issues. One group, the Flagellants, caused a huge uproar amongst the public.
The limited supplies they had was only enough to sustain them for a little bit before they ran out. Their clothes were not adequate thus they often caught chills, fevers, and other illnesses. The death rate at Valley Forge was also extremely high. Of the 8,000 people enlisted in February, 3,989, half of the people enlisted, perished during encampment (Doc A). The soldiers who died due to being too sick to actually fight, died not because they were killed off, but because they were forced to endure the brutal and atrocious winter of Valley Forge.
Clair and his troops began October 1791 only one year after Harmar’s defeat. St. Clair and roughly 2,000 soldiers departed Fort Washington, located present day Cincinnati, Ohio. Of the roughly 2,000 soldiers, only 600 were regular men (soldiers who had fought in previous battles), 800 were recruits (draftees), and 600 were local militia (also known as camp followers). Due to the vast amount of troops by numbers who were not regular soldiers, St. Clair’s men were unequipped and not properly trained. As St. Clair and his troops progressed in the campaign, many troops deserted for various reasons.
Leaving Valley Forge Valley forge was a camp in the winter with bad conditions that made a lot of soldiers sick, George Washington trained the remaining soldiers. People staying will end up sick or dead. In the document Estimate of Illness and death (Document A) it shows the estimate or people dying from December 1777 - February 1778. It says in December - June there were 1800 to 2500 illnesses. Since they were not in the best conditions there were more deaths.
there were two really important generals for the Confederates one of the generals, General Robert E.Lee. The general for the Union is, General George B. Mcclellan. The two Generals had been a very big threat since they had been good in school and also on the field. The Union had 75,300 soldiers and the Confederate had 52,000 soldiers. 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.
Almost half the men at Valley Forge were sick, and after a while even more men would get sick. Constantly being surrounded by sick men and living in bad condition, is not a good combination. It would make it extremely easy for someone to get sick, and with no help or means of cure, could lead to death. About 20% of the men at Valley Forge died while enlisted, and while the other had survived, they didn’t live easily. They still had to deal with sickness, bad conditions, and fighting in the war.
Many new immigrants from places in southern and eastern Europe such as Italy, Greece and Russia settled in Northern cities and became the backbone of industrial labor. Due to a lack of space in cities and the tendency of poverty among these immigrants, many of them had to live in tenements and slums. Since these immigrants were willing to settle for lower wages and worse conditions, they occupied many industrial jobs, frustrating the working class of whites and old immigrants. Along with the frustration that the immigrants were taking jobs away from natives, there was a widespread sentiment that these new immigrants were inferior. Furthermore, these new immigrants were religious but tended to be Catholic or Jewish as opposed to Protestant as was the majority, providing another basis of resentment.
