This affected the country very much because they quickly began to be surrounded by people they didn’t know, and were unsure if they were trusted. This included mostly attackers of immigrants. They affected the downfall by spreading diseases, overpopulation, and attacks on some of the Romans. (Doc D and E). In the year three-hundred-eighty CE, the Ostrogoths, Visigoths, and the Vandals started to invade Rome.
Military issues were those of the problematic situation of expanding borders, barbarian knowledge of military tactics, and the resulting end in loss of control over the Empire. The economic problem included the constant cost of an ever expanding army resulting in inflation and raised taxes. Thus, political, military, and economic issues were chiefly responsible for the fall of Rome. Starting with the political side of things, the Emperor
Rome collapsed due to various reasons such as its sheer size that lead to various problems within the Empire, the rise of Christianity that caused disputes within the people of the Empire and also external invasion that was caused due to the weakening of the Empire. Rome’s gigantic size was too difficult to be governed which was one of the root causes that led to the collapse of the Roman Empire. The Roman Empire was too extensive for Rome to reign over, it kept on expanding and the Empire continued to conquer various places. Due to the expansion, it was hard for the rulers and government officials to communicate and protect the Empire. Therefore Romans ruled over more land than they could manage.
However, accidental fires were common in ancient Rome. In fact, Rome suffered other large fires in 69 and in 80AD. In the case with Nero, the Roman citizens blamed the Emperor for starting the Great Fire for his personal needs, which created conflict in his own government and the greatest threat to his reign.
Feudalism: Its Rise and Decline With the transformation of the Roman Empire, the empire would no longer be a universal culture. With an ineffective government and no armies, the former empire experienced mass anarchy. Due to its weakened state, the empire had become more vulnerable. Because people need security, a new concept would arise, this concept would be known as feudalism. The vulnerability of this transforming empire allowed it to be attacked by Germanic tribes and other warring nations.
However, it caused the World War because of pre-existing conditions, that caused countries to be on the brink of war. It was the alliances that divided Europe already into two major teams, causing tension between countries in the opposing alliances. Militarism set countries on the race to build the biggest army and navy which also caused tension between countries which were competing in the race to build the biggest military. The arms race got the countries ready for war, and since all countries build massive armies the war became one of the bloodiest wars that wrought havoc upon
World War 2 was the biggest and bloodiest conflict of the entire world history. Many world powers such as the US and Great Britain were involved in this war, which indicates that this was an international war. After its end, defeated countries were blamed for its devastating consequences. One of them was blamed most in particular: Germany. In this essay, I will analyze to what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of World War 2.
However, more specifically, the Central Powers had weak and unreliable Allies such as Austro - Hungary and the Ottoman Empire which both collapsed, leaving Germany isolated. While on the other hand the Allied Forces had powerful allies such as the USA which could contribute greater resources of men and materials. Furthermore, the British had put in place a Naval Blockade prevent the passing of cargo of any ships that attempted to pass through, this was very effective and starved much of Germany’s population. Lastly, Germany’s two front with Russia greatly weakened German forces and had larger repercussions later on. Although these are all important causes, the most factor that
World War 1, also known as the Great War was one of the most devastating human catastrophes that the world had ever seen. Europe was left in a state of ruin, an entire generation was lost and millions of civilians died as a result of this “great war.” It left a scar upon the landscape, one that quite literally resembled a wasteland. For many people, who had never experienced this kind of devastation, World War 1 was like the apocalypse come to fruition; the world and its people were forever changed as a result of the war, but out of the ashes many great modernist writers emerged. Writers like T.S. Eliot, whose wasteland seemed to capture all that had been lost, not just physically, but culturally and spiritually.
People forget and move one very quickly; Napoleon’s rise to power is a good example of that on a large scale. As there were many changes in the French government during the end of the 18th century, it begs the question, which system of government was France better off under? Towards its end, the French monarchy greatly struggled to support its growing population. Poverty and starvation were becoming increasingly more common, which was, in large part, caused
In all, the war was horrible, but to understand why the war happened, one must start from the beginning. There are many reasons why World War II started. To put into a big category, the main cause of the war is the first world war. The countries reluctantly signed the Treaty of Versailles, also known as the Peace of Paris, because it did not satisfy any country (History.com, 2009). After World War I, many countries were indebted and economically poor; this is known as the Great Depression.
World War I and World War II were the largest military conflicts in history. They both involved powerful nations, such as America, England, France, and Soviet Union. The World War I was fought for acquiring colonies, and the World War II was fought for ideologies, such as Fascism and Communism. World War I and World War II were two wars that plundered people 's freedom. During the World War I, the reduction of "Civil Liberties" was more significant on the citizens.
The 1970 's negatively affected the US economy for a multitude of reasons but most importantly due to US foreign policy and the spread of communism in Asia. With tensions between the democratic US and the communist USSR rising each day, the US devoted large amounts of resources and money into the containment of communism in specifically eastern Asia. Examples of this would be the Vietnam war which lasted from 1965-75. This was a war that the US entered in order to help South Vietnam defeat North Vietnam. This was a long lasting and very expensive war that the US and South Vietnamese forces eventually lost.
The Roman Empire collapsed for many reasons. One of them I believe, is because it got too large. Because of that there was probably a more diverse group of people, this is just an example on a very large scale. It also shows up in Julius Ceasar, the people had different beliefs than Julius, their leader, which ended in his death. What if this were to happen in the United States?
