Tooze does conclude that Hitler he probably wished to avoid a big war with Britain and France until the early 1940’s, but this become impossible with the events that had unfolded by early 1939.

Just weeks later, with France in the midst of a Nazi invasion and British forces surrounded at Dunkirk, a decision had to be made: would the British reach a peace settlement with Hitler as suggested by Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax and Neville Chamberlain, the leader of the Tories, or would the British stand and fight to the death as proposed by Winston Churchill? As we now know, the British decided to go with their new Prime Minister and continued to fight. Prior rips into Chamberlain for his wishes to make a peace settlement when he was Prime Minister, saying that Chamberlain’s belief that the British could reach a negotiated agreement with the Nazis showed an incomprehension of the enemy on Chamberlain’s behalf. Prior goes on to give strong, but fair praise to Churchill for how he handled his first days as Prime Minister. He was constantly being undermined by Halifax, who was working for intervention from the Italians for a peace settlement, even after it was becoming increasingly clear that the Italians would join sides with the Nazis.

These statements given to the American people add to the credibility of Wilson as a president considering he is still trying to stay neutral in World War I.
When world war I stared he wanted to prepare Britain for war and founded the Royal Navy Air Service and helped with the development of the Churchill Tank which would later be used in World War II. During WW II Churchill was against Chamberlain 's policy of appeasement, and when Chamberlain resigned, Churchill became the next prime minister. As Prime Minister during the war, Churchill gave numerous speeches that helped lift the spirits of the people of Britain. After WWII Churchill began his battle fighting communism. He gave his speech about the Iron Curtain that divided West and East Europe and warned about the dangers of Soviet

This was primarily caused by the difference in the executive leaders ideologies, where Hoover was more focused on individual responsibility and capitalism, Roosevelt was more concerned with immediate action based on government intervention. Overall, the New Deal sacrificed the amount of personal responsibility that the people had with their own economic security. The power of the federal government was strengthened, but the long-lasting effects based on the social and economic policies was beneficial for the United States. Herbert Hoover began

Although the Great Depression had torn apart the prosperity of the United States, hope soon enough resurfaced in the form of presidential candidate Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s promises of a “new deal”. However, Roosevelt’s attempts at economic and social reform met mixed results - although his efforts to mend the extreme personal debt of farms and banks (as well as the general population) did succeed (at least in part), his attempts to remedy the unemployment crisis and the growing national debt were failures, and in the case of national debt, he may have even made the problem worse. The origin of these failures is likely the methods Roosevelt used themselves - one effort to fix the economy surrounding farmers was even deemed unconstitutional,
