Book Review 2: Soldiers, Statesmen, and Cold War Crises by Richard Betts Summary: Betts starts off his book by recognizing the ambiguity around the advocacy of the use of force in a crisis by military leaders even though there is a prevalent assumption that military professionals are more aggressive than diplomats and politicians. He states he writes the book in order to provide a comprehensive survey of the postwar role of American military men in decisions on their most essential function, their use of force in combat. Betts acknowledges the vast availability of literature on military participation in decisions on defense budgets and weapons procurement, but feels there is a void when looking at decision-making from the perspective of military leadership versus civilian leadership.
Background: When the war between Britain and France broke out, the President Washington issued the "Declaration of neutrality", and in September 1796 he published the Farewell address declared the policy of United States non-interventionism. In the 19th century, President Thomas Jefferson extended Washington's ideas about foreign policy in his March 4, 1801 inaugural address.

Conclusion The Social Impacts of Military Revolutions The emergence of the Japanese Pikemen and the European Arquebusier brought forth radical changes in military tactics, yet as shown, their forthcoming resulted in more than just evolution on the battlefield. Since the democratization of violence and decentralization of power drive all military revolutions, it is not unreasonable to assert that there could be trends which describe the social impact of military revolutions. With this in mind, despite being two separate civilizations, there are clear connections between Medieval Japan’s relationship with the Ōnin War and Medieval Europe’s experience with the Italian Wars. There are six of them. These civilizations were technologically different, yet the negligible effect this has on making these trends allude to more than sheer coincidence.
Many very important events happen every day each year all over the world. Some are not as interesting as others but are still just as important. They range from discovering a new species to the launch of the first rocket into space. Many people don’t think of these even when their birthday lies on it. After researching historic events on my birthday, August 1st, I have found three very interesting topics: Columbus discovering South America, how the first world war started, and an ex-marine going on a killing spree in Texas.
World War 1 was the first war were propaganda played huge role in keeping people at the home front informed about what was happening throughout the battlefields.

One of the main ways propaganda was used in World War 1 was to ensure that the public only knew what the governments wanted them to know.

Tension began to rise, as George III became the king of Great Britain in 1760. At first, he was an appreciated king, but because of his political views and whom he appointed as his ministers he quickly lost his fame. His first appointed minister George Greenville would impose several taxes on the colonist that would cause them to cry taxation without representation.
