In the years after World War I, the Italian nation was bitterly disappointed of not gaining all of the territories it was promised as a reward for the country’s participation on the side of the Allies. The decisions taken in the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 to denude Italy of its demands and give many of the territories to Yugoslavia, brought about prevalent social unrest and outraged nationalists in the country. Moreover, as a result of the war, the Italian nation had to face many economic and social problems, which further contributed to the turmoil in the country. To a large number of the population, the current democratic government seemed helpless and unable to deal with the state’s difficulties (Beck). The nation needed a strong political
He gained position as leader and used his power to his advantage. He may not have been crowned thane of Italy, but he tried to regain Italy for the prestige and power through extreme military measures. He became allies with Hitler in 1936-1939 during the Spanish Civil War. He attempted conquering the world by joining forces with Germany in World War II, but failed to do so. On the same note, Macbeth also made the biggest mistake by committing the most horrid crime of all; he had Macduff’s family slaughtered.
Communism believed in a classless society, while Fascism followed a dictatorship, but maintaining a dictatorship required the suppression of the people. Fascist ideology believed that “war alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and puts the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to meet it,” which requires constant violence to prove power (Lualdi 236). By 1924, Mussolini was able to gain 65% of the vote for fascism, but in 1933, the Nazi party only gained 44% of the vote, and even with a minority ruling party was able to gain control of the government. Both Mussolini and Hitler came into power through legal means, but Mussolini was named Prime Minister in the hopes of avoiding war but after gaining control. Yet after their legal rise into power, they used coercion and violence to further their fascist rulings.
This is also a result of his overconfidence, instead of blaming himself for going to the Mediterranean, he blamed his allies and got blamed by the generals under him. This internal destruction would lead Hitler’s failure to take over the Soviet
Instead, it is Germany’s Military reorganization because it reduced Germany’s military which made them feel weak and trapped which for a nationalism country, it is the worst to no longer feel the pride in your country the you used to. These four ways the Treaty of Versailles punished Germany after WWI helped the Treaty to be the cause of WWII. On that note I will leave you with, do you still believe one document couldn’t have helped to start World War
Mussolini was an Italian dictator who terrorized people who did not have the same views as him. He also invaded other countries and forced his fascist ideas on the people living there. He was a ruthless leader with all of the power. He was later killed by his own people. This assassination is justified because the people had absolutely no power and the only way to make Italy better was to get rid of Mussolini.
Joseph Stalin was a dictator of Italy, while Adolf Hitler was a dictator of Germany. They both abused their power and authority to maintain their position. Their frequent use of propagandas manipulated people’s behaviors and thoughts in their favor. They did not care about the personal freedom or the rights of their people nor even care about their lives. All they desired was more stable and stronger power to maintain their position as a dictator.
Attila had plans of setting up a court in Italy. According to tradition, Attila was forced to go stop and go away from Italy by Pope Leo I and apostles Saint Peter and Saint Paul, threatening him to
1939 marked the start of World War II in Germany, quickly spreading throughout Europe. Germany, Italy, and Japan made enemies with the United States, England, and France, who became known as the Allied Forces. The war was initiated by the actions of German dictator, Adolf Hitler, whose goal was to conquer the world for his own personal gain. Hitler was a communist who had the unique ability to persuade nations into joining him in his beliefs and actions, which resulted in the deaths of millions of people for their religious views and cultures. The United States remained neutral from 1939-1941.
World War I devastated countries throughout Europe. Economies collapsed and dismantled the way of life for the majority of people, especially in Germany. The Allied powers had blamed them for being the perpetrator of the war and so they punished Germany severally. In the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin ruled the country with an iron fist that resulted in millions dead and/or starving. In Italy, the country had been promised territory but never received any land.
Around the 1920’s and the 1930’s, two famous political leaders came to power in Europe-Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. These leaders were known for outmaneuvering their other opponents to gain fame and power. As they grew with age and wisdom, they continued to become more ruthless and continued to violate people's rights. Due to these leaders, the U.S Constitution has safeguards regarding these historical events to protect us from a strong, powerful government.
