Most people voted in support of the war because of the War Hawks. There were activists who were out to spread propaganda that went against the beliefs of the War Hawks. This came as a disadvantage to them. In one newspaper, an article listed reasons as to why the United States was not prepared for war. Foreign policy was also a reason that people were worried about declaring war on Britain.
The movie Flyboys is historically inaccurate with its props, characters, and events that used in the movie to portray the dogfights, lives, and situations of the pilots of the Lafayette Escadrille squadron during WWI. In the movie Flyboys the characters they use are based off of real life people that flew and fought in the war, but the characters do not have any relation to the where they are from in the movie to where they are at in real life. The main character who it is based off of was born in Phoenix, Arizona but in the movie it says he is originally from Aberdeen, Texas. The character that the movie is based off of his name is Frank Luke. He never once lived in the state of Texas nor owned a ranch there.
On September 9, 1945, Admiral William F. Halsey, commander of the Third Fleet, was publicly quoted as stating that the atomic bomb was used because the scientists had a “toy and they wanted to try it out…” He further stated that “the first atomic bomb was an unnecessary experiment” and that it was“a mistake to ever drop it.” By all the evidence and information we have above, it shows us that to end the WWII is not really the reason for U.S. to drop that bombs on Japan. The evidence above had also said Japan already was prepared and ready to surrender. The bombs are totally unnecessary. Those evidence make dropped bombs be not
Doug 's father got a new job that was far away from his own town so, Doug has to adapt to the town that he moved to. His family life is hard on him because his dad is abusive and his mom is loving but, flounders sometimes and she has to work hard to keep Doug 's dad happy. When Doug was compared to Ponyboy from The Outsiders is by S.E Hinton, Spider Women from Gods, Goddesses, and monsters by Shelly Keenan, the Father in the story, Pinocchio by Margaret Hillert. It is clear through their words and the way other characters react about them that these characters share a troublemaker, wise, and thoughtful character traits. Doug from Okay for Now and Ponyboy from the Outsiders both share the same character trait, troublemaker.
The use of convoys caused the destruction of increasingly more U-Boats and caused the U-Boat’s effectiveness to drop severely, however there were some things that made the use of convoys less effective. These things include the fact that the need of ships to use a convoy took these ships out of the direct war with the germans and their allies, also the german Wolf pack tactic was specifically made to combat the convoy method and proved partially successful in doing so (Fontenoy, “Convoy”). The convoy method was very successful in destroying u-boats and protecting their own ships for most of the war, even so the german use of the Wolf pack tactic made the convoy method less effective and continued to harm merchant and passenger vessels in the latter parts of both World Wars (Fontenoy, “Convoy”). Overall the use of convoys was a big part of how the US combatted U-Boats during World War I and World War
Ponyboy, the protagonist in the novel The Outsiders, changes and realizes something very important. As he is on his journey with his friends helping him on the way, he learns that his friends are like his family and are always there. He starts to notice it near the end of the novel when Dally and Johnny (his closest friends) both get killed. The theme for this book is better said as, a valuable friend can be more loyal than a brother. At the beginning of the novel Ponyboy's parents were killed in a car accident.
The war is considered the first modern war because it relied heavily on industry, telecommunications, and rapid transportation for its conduct. The Telegraph, for example, enabled generals to communicate with forces in far-flung areas. Journalists could also file stories with newspapers as photographs were extensively taken than in previous conflicts. As a result, the war was highly documented. Balloons were also widely used in the conflict.
During the beginning of the first world war, aircrafts were used primarily for military observation of enemy states and did not play a large role until near the end of the war where they were used to bomb enemy territory on the western front. The first fighter planes produced in World War I, was rarely used due to their overall inaccuracy and inefficiency whereas the fighter planes/jets produced during world war II, had more speed, enhanced armoury and were more accurate and precise. As such, the long-range aircraft of the second world war removed the Mid-Atlantic Gap. Furthermore, technological progression had a large influence on the production rate of airpower. During World War, I, the United Kingdom and France collectively produced around 130,000 aircrafts and Germany produced around 50,000 aircrafts.
WW2 is a global war which had two military alliances, one called Allies, and another one was Axis. In 1939, British entered WW2. Some people think the British should enter WW2, but some persons think the British shouldn’t enter WW2. In my opinion, the British should enter WW2 for three reasons. The first reason is that the British and Poland had a Treaty.
because it was a drastic increase in spending, one that the Americans could not reciprocate with the selling of products so that they would not be in debt afterwards. So this is a negative affect because the war put the U.S. into debt which would affect everyone in the country in a negative way. The number of jobs for Americans increased during WW1 but once it all ended, and all the soldiers came back from the war, the number of jobs decreased and many people lost jobs because soldiers who had jobs before the war wanted them back. At the same time, people that filled the need for factories while the soldiers were gone still needed jobs, but there were no jobs for anyone. This phenomenon can be explained in Caitlin Sandman’s article on the effects of WW1 on America; it says, “As the war ended, and the soldiers started to return home, the industry production began to slow, and there was less need for workers in factories.
