During the Colonial Era (1492-1763), colonists were justified in waging war against Great Britain; due to the inequitable Stamp Act, the insufferable British oppression, and the perceived tyranny of King George III, the king of Great Britain, however, the colonists were unjustified in some of their actions. In Colonial America, colonists were justified in waging war against Great Britain, because the Stamp Act was unfair and viewed as punishment. Because of the war, Britain had no other choice but to tax the colonists to pay for the debt. For example, according to document 2, the author states that the act was not only for trade but for “the single purpose of levying money.” The stamp act taxed even the littlest of things such as newspapers, documents, licenses, molasses and even playing cards. It angered the colonists, so they responded with violence.
According to alphahistory.com “Imperialism is a system where a powerful nation controls and exploits one or more colonies”.Toward the end of the 1800s, several imperial powers existed. The British empire was the largest. Both France and Britain had many colonies in Africa and Asia. Germany, Italy and others, including the United States wanted to expand their empires
The tense battle between the triple entente and the triple alliance may have been blamed on Germany alone but really there are quite a few more details that came into play when starting this terrible fight. One little argument between two countries turned into a full out world war that ended with 38 million casualties The underlying causes of WWI include the forming of alliances across Europe, the quick ride in military and supplies, each country 's intense love for their nation, and the fast imperialization that was spreading across Europe. The forming of alliances built up tensions between all of Europe which helped cause WWI. In Document A, the triple entente is shown to be surrounding the triple alliance which made everyone believe that a war would spark from the high tensions. This was an underlying cause because when all of Europe began to become distrustful everyone hastily began to pick sides before the war had even started.
There were many forms of discrimination. For example, racism. Race and Racism were important features of WWI for two reasons. One of the reasons being the ideas about race had developed over time in the 19th century to make the idea of the most important preoccupations of modern Europeans. Another reason was that many of the major hostiles at war were between 1914 and 1918 owned large colonial empires, were white europeans ruled over Africans, Asians, and Pacific Islanders.
These acts convinced Spain to invade England. Drake then conducted a huge raid on the Spanish city of Cadiz destroying more than 30 ships and taking thousands upon thousands of supplies. In 1588 Drake was appointed vice admiral of the English Navy. On July 27, 130 ships of the Spanish Armada entered the English Channel in a crescent form. English ships quickly met them and relied on heavy cannon fire to significantly damage the Spanish Armada.
The third reason why Germany caused World War 1 is because Germany had the opportunity to start a war that would gain them land. Germany was an industrial powerhouse, and once again Document C shows that Germany had the most money to spend on armies and navies. With Germany spending approximately 115 million British pounds, exceeding Russia 's 90 million British points spent on armaments, it can be inferred that Germany took this opportunity to start a war. Germany knew that a war would help them gain land and remove their burden. Using Austria-Hungary 's war, Germany definitely had the opportunity to side with Austria-Hungary and obtain Russia to relieve their burden.
According to Mr. Kim’s lecture on World War Two, both of these dictators had developed new and advanced war-machinery in order to prepare to gain European ascendancy. Germany and Italy, the two dictator’s home countries, had even allied together to create the Axis powers, Mussolini was able to easily capture Ethiopia, as Ethiopia’s primitive spears were no match against Italian tanks and guns. Although extreme, this was the first conflict in which advanced technology was necessary in order to advance in war. After Hitler grew to power, he began his plans to capture and annex the whole world into the “Third Reich.” After exploiting appeasement too far, Hitler launched a Blitzkrieg, or lightning war against Poland. Thus, Hitler uses his advanced technology to execute his plan on Poland.
A Review on American Slavery, American Freedom Bitter rivalries and bloody struggles for power mar much of European history. Intense national conflicts plagued Europe from the middle ages until the end of World War II. Nations such as England, France, Germany, and Spain consistently engaged in some form of armed combat to determine who would be the dominant force on the continent. Logically, with Columbus’s discovery of the New World in 1492, these nationalistic conflicts would spill over into the New World. The New World not only provided new land to be conquered, but also the resources for unforetold economic gain.
Like Napoleon, Hitler made people like him by using many different types of propaganda (“Adolf” 4). He tried to influence the Germans with this propaganda as much as he could when he joined the DAP. Hitler rose quickly through the ranks and was soon the leading spokesperson. This was his first
