Also, a society can prevent terror by limiting the amount of time one rules. Robespierre had to long to manipulate the people and form the right relations. Without this, he wouldn’t have had the same power because no one knew enough about him to formulate large scale opinions. It is still inevitable, he abused his power. There are plenty of “if’s” but none change the fact that abusers of power forever influence their society.
Guns would have been extremely helpful on Odysseus’ voyage. He and his crew faced many enemies, and if they had used superior weapons, then they could have easily defeated them. One example of this is when they were attacked by the army of Cicones. They would have had much lower losses if they had been able to use guns. Also, they might have been able
Henry describes “a shell screaming like a storm banshee went over the huddled heads of the reserves”(Crane 20) The artillery shells could blow up groups of men,which made them a deciding factor in some battles. Hearing friendly artillery in the war probably helped some soldiers feel less afraid, because they knew their comrades would have their back. The new blades could could cut deeper than the old blades. The “mounted cavalrymen and fixed bayonets played a more prominent role” because the bayonets are sharper and more well made than previous blades. (American Era 2) The horses combined with the bayonets made a deadly combo.
The use of trenches in World War 1 was very popular, they helped protect against artillery, machine gun fire and enemy troops. A system of trenches meant that it was almost impossible for the army using the system to lose ground. They were dug to protect from enemy fire and hold ground. They were so effective because frontal attack would mean heavy casualties for the opposition and the length of the trenches meant that flanking was almost impossible. Battles where both sides used trenches usually went for a long time and ground was rarely gained by either side.
The war is ongoing and has not been won. Airports also doubled their security after 9/11, as well as giving law enforcement agencies sweeping search and surveillance powers over united states citizens without a warrant also the government aimed for the developing technology that would enable it to collect and process massive amounts of information every individual in the United States.I think that a domineering government would be better because if you allow yourself to be dominated then you don 't deserve to have freedom because if you 're not willing to fight for your freedom then what 's the point of having it. Besides, we live in a dominating country
The Celts: The People Who Came Out Of Darkness 'The Celts: The People Who Came Out of the Darkness ' the author Gerhard Herm tells an epic story of the Celts who attacked Rome and Greece for the possession of wealth, power and diversity. Even though, in the beginning the author spends most of his time giving more detail than he should about the Romans, Greece, and Atlantis, moreover, the story portrays how the Celts Warriors collected the heads of their enemies and regarded them as war trophies. The Celts later extended their influence to the Atlantic and the Middle East. In these regions, they brought a unique mythology and culture. They also introduced a style of art that was regarded as the greatest accomplishment of the north of Alps
Medieval times was a time for proving yourself. Everyone wanted to be better than their opponent. The weapons and war tactics developed and used in Medieval times proved to be advanced and lethal. The better the weapons, the more lethal the armies became. All the armies were trying to come up with the new technology, and it did not matter if they had to maybe take some ideas from their opponents.
I knew that I was going to be a great soldier, because I was great at murdering my enemies. Killing more than one at a time was much more adrenaline-charged than just murdering one Though, I hated the stench of it, the feeling I got was a lot more satisfying. From the Florentine army, I was transferred to the Venetian one, and became an “ancient” to the Moorish general that you know as Othello. At the time I abhorred Othello, just as much as anyone else in my God forsaking life, however when he chose Cassio, to be lieutenant over me, I snapped. I didn’t want to get my hands dirty for killing Othello, so I devised a plan so that Othello, would go mad.
Finally, this movie showed a realistic approach to how problems such as this disease is dealt with, between authorities and the effects of those. In this movie the idea of bombing the whole city was well liked among authorities and planned to be used twice. Although the movie had many realistic points, it also had some unrealistic parts. One prime example of an unrealistic moment in this movie was the short time it took to produce the antiserum and delivery to all the people. In real life circumstances, the antiserum wouldn’t have been made so quickly and would have slowed their plan down.
The advantages that the Spanish had over the Native Americans were extensive; including their weaponry and manpower but especially their vigilance towards the enemy “... for even if the Mexicans sued for peace again, he dared not trust them” (The Conquistadors, Hammond Innes, 1969). This was because the Spanish had a goal of domination and conquest, while the Aztec and the Incas were often ignorant and initially had no great fears of the Europeans. With the power of muskets, cannons, warships and more advanced technology, the Europeans were able to conquer and overwhelmed the Natives. While also leaving them in awe after creating great sounds with their firearms, they used the intimidation and fury of battle to scare the Indians. A large percentage
I imagine that there would have been more battles like Breed 's Hill without them. Also because of the distance from England to America was so great, their troops that were shipped in were probably not so fresh. They had bad communication and poor supply because of this distance as well. We also had better politicians. Our soldiers in this era were largely untrained militia that were better suited to fighting the Native people
Romans could control over their vast territories by basically being smarter than other civilizations. If they wanted to take over an area they wouldn’t create chaos and try to take over extremely forcefully like many other civilizations. They devoted themselves to the disciplines of warfare unlike the Persians and many Greeks. Being able to conquer so much land, meant that they had to have specific ways to control it. One of the ways they did that was by not imposing heavy taxation to conquered land.
Because diseases spread so quickly within a small period of time, vaccination became even more crucial to the survival of humans. One of the major diseases that spread extremely quickly throughout the nation was Tuberculous. Tuberculous became the known as the “master disease.” Because of Pasteur’s and Koch’s discovery of the germ theory, vaccinations from TB were eradicated. The spread of Tuberculous helped the fame of the germ theory in means of exposer. Without the sterilization process established by Joseph Lister and the germ theory of disease by Robert Koch and Louis Pasteur, infectious diseases would have been easily spread far more quickly and also longer than they had before.
Alterman starts off explaining his view that using the term “war” is a misleading notion which has been erroneously used by leaders. Alterman states, “We like the idea of fighting wars because we think we can win a clear victory. And in our long history of wars against other nations, we 've defeated many of them. But we can 't win a war against a complex phenomenon like poverty, drug use, or terrorism.” (2017). He expands on how terrorists have the advantage of relatively easy access to weapons, and the easy communication, including social media and TV.
