Whereas Germany learnt to deal with WW1 tanks very effectively by creating their own version of the tank, and focused on quality over quantity, and made only 20 of them. During the Battle of Amiens in 1918 72% of allied tanks were destroyed in just 4 days. 6 days before the end of World War 1 the British Tank Corps only had 8 tanks left, and most were damaged. From its development in 1916 tanks have played an imperative role in warfare and have helped in many operations and battles in history, but none as important as their role in WW1. The tanks held a great significance in ww1 as they caused trench warfare to become obsolete.
The weapons were very advanced and very dangerous but with technology today it is more advanced. The change of inventions, weapons, and techniques that changed warfare had a big impact on world war 1. This gave less peace to what happened between the countries. New weapons were also made a big difference in the war. They made a big difference because the
Before World War I the world’s most powerful countries were fraught with nationalistic ideals that increased friction amongst them. With the start of a Second Industrial Revolution, these countries, such as Great Britain, Russia, France, Austria-Hungary, and Germany, developed exponentially economically and produced complex realignments socially and politically. World War I, although seemingly sudden, was not a surprise; however, the consequences of the war did change the world. The impact the Second Industrial Revolution had on countries was the kick start of growth from a recession that hurt everyone. Along with economic growth came the increase in nationalism, war, and the fight for expansion.
Many other commanders did not want to accept the Balloon Corps either because many of them though scouts on horses were just as good as balloons in the air. President Abraham Lincoln finally stepped in and changed all their minds about using balloons (Emerson 33-36). The balloons were not easy to move at all and were very complicated to use. The balloons weighed hundreds of pounds and required numerous pieces of equipment to deploy. To inflate the balloons it took many hours and it took dozens of army men to tie down the big air balloons.
With a 90% attributed casualty rate to the Minie Ball innovation, leaders had no ethical choice than to modify the tactics and doctrine for the current modern warfare (C}. The casualties sustained in Napoleonic style fighting using the Minie Ball was unacceptable by any means shown through the carnage produced during the war (F}. When it comes to the closure of a sucking chest wound, the procedure was adopted by surgeons across the American Civil War Theater as the way to treat the sucking chest wound (D). Anything less than applying the principles of this treatment would have left a patient knocking at deaths door, an ethical dilemma no surgeon would want to be in with an innovation proven to counter this
We saw a lot of new technology in the Civil War. We also used our old and trusty weapons too. With the advances it revolutionized how we go to war today. It caused more damage, and it also caused more casualties. It changed our strategies in fighting.
The United States participation in the Great War changed America in many ways. The first major change was the sense of being American. For the first time people had an overwhelming since of patriotism as well as nationalism. This is very important as we move forward in time. In many ways the United States was more united than ever, but their was also some problems that arose.
From the way they rule can go back to a certain event in their life and they can affect the lives of millions and influence many people today like gandhi influenced the way Martin Luther king jr led people.Hitler and Gandhi are very different in ways I didn’t get to list but most importantly their education history and lifestyle have made them the way they are and I believe the harder you try at what you do the better you can do it whether that is leading an army to inspiring millions and trying to stop war. To wrap it up I believe that hitler and Gandhi have many many differences but they do have some similarities that I think have brought us to where we are all at today to how gandhi inspired us to bring peace to people and hitler helps us not repeat history and learn from our
Why War is Good We are Mariah, Jordan, Siri, Chong, and Kevin, and we believe that war is a good thing. We believe this because it has lead to many technological advances, it is good for the economy, and lastly it supports the theory of utilitarianism. Throughout human history we see examples of war being spurred by technology, but we also see technological jumps occurring during or following times of war. Though not originally invented for war, one of the earliest examples of this is the expansion of Roman infrastructure through the building of roads to supply their military troops. The infamous Appian Way, or “queen of the roads”, was originally built in 312 B.C.E.
There were downsides to it- it made the war longer then everyone thought it would be as there were so many countries fighting, hence being called World War 1. It was more important than imperialism as countries were already taking over each other’s
“The term "couldn 't hit the broadside of the barn" was literally true when applied to the accuracy of smoothbore muskets. At 300 yards, only 1 shot in 20 would hit a target of 18 square feet. The guns didn 't even have an aiming device ” (West). The modern version was called the rifled musket due to its grooves or “rifling” in the barrel, which propelled the bullet much farther and more accurately because it spun the bullet. The issue with the smoothbore was that it was a muzzleloader, which meant you needed to push the bullet down the barrel in the front, which was extremely cumbersome and especially dangerous on the battlefield (Brooks 15).
However, Jayden noticed that the combat on the planet was not very advanced due to the sloppily done killing of the street urchin. So, if Owen was one of the biggest and strongest, Jayden thought he could easily take him and even beat Gavin, whoever he is. Jayden believed this due to the fact that he was actually very good at combat. A prodigy, almost. He learned from a man named Liam, a man like Jayden’s father after Jayden’s real father had been murdered.
foreign policy and military tactics. One major change was the diversification of intel gathering sources relying less on technology and more on people. The way they valued informant information changed as well. The failure of the op made the military realize that the decisive terrain in combat is human terrain meaning that without significant first hand intel the success of an operation cannot be guaranteed. Probably the most important lesson learned is that the media plays a much larger role in war today than in previous wars.
This new technology cause more powerful weapons to occur. These new weapons caused the number of casualties to increase drastically. New weapons such as machine guns, tanks, flame throwers, grenade launchers, airplanes, submarines and U-boats were invented. Also chemical warfare was first introduced. Around ⅓ of all the casualties in world war 1 were a result of these poisonous gases.
Second, they took forever to reload. Third, they had really bad accuracy. They could only shoot up to about 250 yards. Other muskets like the rifle-musket could be fired up to 1000 yards and it was way more accurate than the regular musket. But, the rifle-musket did have to go through the long process of reloading as well.
