Field Marshal Alan Brooke had taken a very different approach to everything. There was many optimistic views about a cross Channel operation in 1943. The british were completely against launching such an operation in 1942. Their had opposition in the United Kingdom because they would have to bear so much of their military operation. The British military leaders had experienced the vicious fighting against the Germans in World War I that had inflicted such heavy casualties on their forces.
But when the war became a reality it was evident immediately that artillerymen were not ready to deal with close combat, and under General H.J Hunt would have to adapt their crew drills and reorganize if they were to survive and continue to be a contributing member of the force. Napoleon Bonaparte Napoleon capitalized on the potential of Field Artillery by using it as an offensive weapon system. He could reach out and attack from a distance without placing his artillery assists at risk. Back then the range of his cannons was only 300 to 400 yards, while the muskets used by his enemy was no more than 150 yards. This was not the case during the Civil War as upgraded technology and weapons allowed Soldiers to engage with effective fire
Cassius knew and warned Brutus yet Brutus was being stubborn for better words and did not listen. Cassius was suicidal and didn’t exactly speak his opinion when it was needed or could of been heard. Cassius also killed one of his own men during war who was a coward! That shows major disloyalty with Cassius knowing that they shouldn’t of gone to Philippi in the first place. Julius Caesar would of made a great leader for Rome and showed loyalty and gave to his country in his will .
The main fact that he can be considered a betrayer is because he killed his best friend Caesar. Yet we all know that Brutus was looking at the bigger picture, and knew that Caesar was not fit to be the ‘king’ of Rome in the play Brutus says : "Not that I lov'd Caesar less, but that I lov'd Rome more.". If Caesar had become king he would have let the power go to his head and ruined the Roman Empire more than it already degraded. The other reason that Brutus can be seen as a betrayer is that he was working against Caesar. Also they group that Brutus worked with had questionable motives and properly did not do it for the same intentions Brutus said he did it for.
The Roman Empire was a large, powerful, and successful empire that stood the test of time. But, Rome was plagued with numerous problems that caused its demise. In my opinion, the fall of the Roman Empire was inevitable. This is because Rome had a corrupt government that failed to satisfy its citizens, and Diocletian’s retirement caused the tetrarchy, which could have been Rome’s last saving grace, to fail. The Roman Empire had a largely corrupt government, which mismanaged the itself into a collapse.
Japan attacked us first thinking that they could take us out of the war before we even joined. This choice however ended up being very costly. People like to argue about the amount of civilians killed by the bombings but fail to realize the high amount of military deaths that would have been caused by an invasion. Deaths of soldiers are still considered casualties. Why would we want to put our troops in that
Henry saw himself as a hero before he got into a battle, but when faced with the reality of war, his imaginations did not come true. For instance, during the march to battle, Henry was continuously complaining about how all the walking was tiring him out and that it was all for nothing. Henry said, “I can't stand this much longer, I don't see what good it does to wear out our legs for nothin’” (Crane 35). Henry knew what he was signing up for when he joined the army, yet in difficult conditions he lacked the motivation to keep going. Another scenario of cowardice shown through dialogue was when Henry was complaining about always losing battles and blaming it on his generals.
To him, the war represented newfound uncertainty of ridiculous social norms and thus a complete remodeling of those rules and strident challenging of Positivistic thinking. Entering the war, Germany was a confident nation full of “noble” young Nationalists ready to die for their country, but the realities of the war soon dispelled that veil of Positivistic thinking. Prior thinking states that it is noble to die for your country, but Remarque is deeply critical of this belief. There is no reason to die for the cause – he calls for soldiers to break the social norm of unwaveringly fighting for your country. The war dashed the confidence of young soldiers and shocked them into realizing that what they perceived before was not so certain.
In the time of where the story took place, the driving force of determination wasn’t a seen as a productive trait to have, and was seen as lust for power and success. Caesar, killed by Brutus and the conspirators, wanted to become the ultimate ruler of Rome, showing a want for success. Brutus also portrays this ambition by his dreams to be a nobleman of Rome. Although both of these characters died tragically, they both had the drive to succeed and also planned how to achieve what they wanted, which is incredibly important. A major downfall of Icarus was his inability to plan out what he was going to do to succeed, unlike Caesar and Brutus.
They were vagrants, continually trying to find a territory to occupy. Many areas the Mongols conquered did not have the resources ruthless Mongols possessed. Horses, for example, were used as an implement to defeat the opposition by the Mongols because of their speed and mobility. These empires were feared and hated for their military power and desire for more
General George Washington had a major impact in the American Revolution. Washington was one of the main generals in the war. He knew that the only way to get rid of the British was to fight them. He made the colonists fight, by giving them reasons like freedom, no taxes, and no more control, etc. Sadly Washington 's troops were poorly trained, and lacked food and supplies, but his motivation kept them going.
Because of having to maneuver their way through the streets of Gettysburg by the time the Confederate had cleared the town they were in no shape to fight. But with the union retreating Lee still thought he was in good shape to win the battle. But he was mistaken because the first day of fighting had cost him too much and he drove the Union forces onto some excellent defensive to rain outside of Gettysburg. With these great positions the union soldiers were able to defend successive confederate attacks. The union 's position had great natural barriers that made it hard for the Confederates to
To be honest it looked like suicide to join the armies. Also the color guard to me seemed foolish and more suicidal because people run into battle carrying no weapons but a large flag and to me the was like “please kill me, I can be easily seen, look at this flag of your enemy, and try to shoot me!!!! !” I struggled to understand why they used those tactics, because to me they lacked common sense. Then I read about why they did stuff like this. They made the lines because the smoke from the guns the soldiers could not see what they were shooting at, so the officers put them in a line so the might actually hit something out of luck.
The plebeians deciding to revolt against those who feel they were unjust by, many decided to no longer to service in the army and leave the patricians to fight their own battles (Morey). They deserted the general and marched to a hill beyond Anio, Sacred Mount in 494 BCE. What surprises me, instead of retaliating against the common folk, the patricians saw the possible failures which could lead to their downfall if they do not get the common people back on their side. At that time they were compelled to alleviate the debt and release those imprisoned from it. Morey discusses how important this sign was to the common folk which allowed them to return, in addition the patricians created a new office leave for the plebeians, two tribune of people were placed in order to protect the people from possible laws placed against them.
The colonists found these taxes so insulting that many of them refused to purchase British goods. These taxes eventually led to the creation of peace treaties such as the Olive Branch Petition. Britain’s attempt to destroy the colonial government was to pay Loyalists to insult the idea of a government. The Loyalists accomplished this by claiming it would make the citizens
