Later on when the “…Germans are being driven out… [and] Italian soldiers are not dying anymore. But American and German soldiers are. I call that doing extremely well” further demonstrates the harmful effects of the competition has also caused not only Yossarian to become desensitized, but also the rest of the army (Heller 186). The war has caused many of the American soldiers to become completely desensitized to killing anyone from opposing forces to the point of not caring if people from their side lose their lives as well. These soldiers have one thing in mind, killing the enemy.
That massacre sparked the idea for tighter gun laws. These are the types of actions that we would see occur in the world if we chose to forget all the bad memories of society. Do you remember the atrocities of the first and second world war? What if you never learnt about these heinous acts of cruelty? We would continually see more large wars occurring because society would decide that the mistakes made in the past aren’t worth remembering.
WW1 was a tremendously devastating war. This led to Hitler rising to power, then WW2, then the cold war, then the world problems we have today. However, the morning Gavrilo Princip woke up to kill the archduke of Austria-Hungary, what if he slipped down his steps? What if WW1 never happened? The chances of WW1 never happening are slimmer than slim, but it could have happened.
Thesis statement: Though many speculate that the act of dropping the atomic bomb on Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) while not doing so on Europe (Germany and Italy) was racially motivated, racism played little to no role in these bombings. The United States of America and her allies were willing to end World War II at any cost, had the atomic bombs been available they would have been deployed in Europe. In the 1940’s there is no doubt that the United States of America was engulfed by mass anti-Japanese hysteria which inevitably bled over into America’s foreign policy. During this period Japanese people living in both Japan and the United States of America were seen as less that human. Japanese-Americans living on the west coast were savagely and unjustifiably uprooted from their daily lives.
They let their guard down to close to the end of the war and they trusted a big wooden horse at the gates of their city. Then during the 1930’s the Germans were in a bad place and they trusted Hitler to get them out of the bad times. However trusting Hitler wasn 't there best idea because up to six million jews died in the Holocaust. Now Germans don 't even like being associated with the Nazi Party. Now lots of People are trusting Trump that he’ll keep his word on building the wall and the new tax reform and more will make lives better.
Liabilities who he believed should be dealt with. Hence he initiated the Holocaust against the Jews and sent several disabled people to their deaths along with them. This was the cost at which Hitler chased perfection. He believed that the dominance and victorious character of the Aryans must be displayed. Friedlander noted that ironically, Hitler was not victorious in the war and therefore the so called perfect dominance of his master race, which had already cost the lives of millions of people, “seemed to be nothing but an imagination” (316).
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
The treaty of Versailles, created by the allied nations, aimed itself at weakening Germany as much as possible. The treaty forced a German loss of territory, massive economical problems, which again were only worsened by the great depression in the 1930s and forced a large number of German people to flee their country. It also severely weakened the German government, so that when the time came, it became a lot easier for Hitler on his way to power in Germany with fascism and nazism. And in most people’s opinion, Hitler is the main character and factor of the Second World War. But without the treaty of Versailles, Hitler was most likely to fail on his path to power in Germany, and would never have succeeded to start a war in the first place.
Although Truman’s actions and the new ‘policies’ that he introduced were a major factor to the deterioration of America-Soviet relations, it is important to understand the pre-1945 factors that affected these relations. After World War I, European countries adopted an appeasement ideology: The world was horrified by what the war had done to Europe, and a war like that must never happen again, so peace must be protected at all costs. This led to many attempts to preserve peace in Europe, which ultimately failed as Germany invaded Poland and the world realized that another war was about to begin. However, one of the last agreements that the western countries signed with the Nazis might have been the start of the bad Soviet relations with these countries: the Munich agreement. This agreement said that Hitler was free to invade a portion of Czechoslovakia, as long as he went no further.
But in the worlds history we've come to find out that's not the truth at all. If all the countries in WW2 would have spoken up together to stop Germany in its early stages, then the war would have stopped a lot sooner, and alot of lives would have been saved. A lot of people are too scared to speak up for what's right but if you don't shake that fear then these bad events are just going to keep happening again and
