The Great War started in 1914 and went on until 1919. It was sparked by the assassination of the president of Austria,Franz Ferdinand, in June 1914. Growing forces of nationalism, alliances and economic factors also helped spark WW1. He was murdered by a Serbian nationalist in Bosnia, and a series of threats and mobilization orders followed the incident, leading in August, to the outbreak of World War I, which sparked Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire to run against Great Britain, France, Russia, Italy and Japan. “The Allies were joined after 1917 by the United States.
B) Discuss the character and early experience of Adolf Hitler and how they influenced his perception of race and war Adolf Hitler was born in a small town Braunau am Inn, in Austria at the border of Germany in April 20, 1889. His father, Alois Hitler was born in 1837- 1903. He was a successful ambitious official in the Austro- Hungarian customs service. His mother, Klara Polzi, born from 1860-1907, was the third wife. Hitler was the only surviving son of the mother because before he was born, his two brothers and a sister were already dead, so his mother spoiled him and was more closed to his mother.
He envisioned a pure and powerful Germany. World War Two officially started when Germany invaded Poland, this was what provoked Britain and France to officially declare war on Germany. The war was a result of political viewpoints like Fascism, Militarism and Nationalism and Germany’s search for revenge and justice after World War one. Perhaps the most significant battle in Australian history is the Battle of Kokoda. Kokoda began after the Japanese Imperial army invaded PNG in an attempt to capture Port Moresby and use it to launch an attack and invade Australia.
Sweden had been using flintlocks for the battle so they weather would not be a factor for them. Russia decided to switch to Flintlocks and Peter the Great prescripts forty-five thousand people into the army(Russia: Land of the Tsars). Peter the Great, now with his upgraded army was able to make it to the Neva Delta in Sweden which gave him access to the Gulf of Finland. Peter had met a girl named Marfa Skavronskaya after he had captured Marienburg. Marfa “converted to Orthodoxy, taking the name Catherine” (Warmed four).
On June 28, 1919, Germany and the Allied Powers signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ending one of the bloodiest wars in modern history. World War I caused the deaths of nearly ten million soldiers and up to thirteen million non-combatants. Catastrophic property and industry losses occurred, especially in France, Belgium, Poland, and Serbia. So in an attempt to avoid future conflict of the same scale, the Allies allowed the Central Powers no participation in the treaty’s negotiations, stripped Germany of many of its territories, blamed it for the war, and imposed substantial reparation payments. However, although the Allies were hopeful that these measures would ensure peace in the future, the Versailles Treaty has been cited as a

When Victoria accused to Melbourne who is a men influenced her life. She complained that her mother's close almost promised "torment for many years", Melbourne said it could be avoided by marriage, which Victoria called a "shocking alternative". Victoria showed interest in Albert’s education, prepared for the future role, he would have to be her husband. After a short while, they were married on 10 February 1840. Albert became an important political adviser as well as the Queen's associate, replacing Lord Melbourne as the dominant, influencing half of her life.
To point out that, Rip Van Wrinkle crosses the Katshill Mountain, so as to escape from his tyrannical wife, but automatically he moved twenty years forwards. When he left the village, it was the pre- revolutionary period, and at that time he has to face the constant disputation with his wife. But when he awakes from his sleep, he moved to the post- revolutionary period, and consequently his wife died. However, he does not realize that it has passed twenty years but only one night. The character does not live the events of the revolution, and he moved towards to the result; however the revolution for Rip is, in fact, the restoration of his lost patriarchal authority after the convenient death of his wife.
At its conclusion, the punishing Treaty of Versailles was supposed to have rendered Germany completely impotent. The League of Nations was formed to prevent future wars of aggression.

Wilhelm II 's first act was to issue a proclamation to the German army forcing them to swear an unbreakable allegiance to him (Cecil 124). He next fired many military officers he deemed to old to effectively do their duties (Cecil 124). Cecil writes, “In the first years of his reign, Wilhelm 's existence centered exclusively around the army” (128). He also followed his grandfather 's parting advice and gave word to the Austrio-Hungarian emperor Franz Josef that Germany would stand by Austria and support the fellow empire even in times of war (Cecil 131). After multiple conflicts between Emperor and Chancellor in domestic and foreign affairs, Otto von Bismarck (the Iron Chancellor) resigned the post he had held for so long and was succeeded by General von Caprivi (Cecil 167).
