Hitler had used propaganda and other tactics to make the German people eager for war. He used the treaty of Versailles as an example for the German people as their anger on the loss of World War one and their treatment under the treaty of Versailles to make them want to take revenge. Moreover, after a winter of waiting, Hitler resumed back to attack on April 9, 1940, nevertheless, as The Blitzkrieg tactic had succeeded on Poland, Hitler attacked Denmark and Norway and occupied them. One month later, Germany launched attacked on Netherlands, Belgium, and France. The main assault was through the Luxembourg and the Ardennes Forest.
Because of this characteristic, his Russian Empire had to receive an infamous defeat in the Russian – Japanese war. In February 1904, the Japanese attacked Port Arthur of Russia to show its power to the western world. However, Nicholas was very confident when he received the news. His pugnacity brought him the subjectivity in war. He believed that “the upstart Japanese would soon be taught a salutary lesson.” He also wrote to his mother: “So the war has begun, our brave men will surely be victorious over the foe.” In contrast, the Russian navies were “all sunk in a single day in the battle of Tsushima.” Nicholas II still did not awaken; he even showed his pugnacity to his own people on the Bloody Sunday.
As said by Christopher Bond, “Remember, we all know the end of the story of World War II and the Cold War. But day by day, living in fear of the Nazis and then in fear of the Soviets, the outcome was by no means certain.” Today everyone knows that the Nazis were defeated in 1945 and the Iron Curtain, along with the Soviets, eventually fell around 1991. But in 1939 after Germany invaded Poland, or when the alliance between the Soviet Union and the United States was beginning to fall apart the peace and safety of the United States was not always guaranteed. Both Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms’ speech and Kennedy’s inaugural address talk about how the peace and freedom of the United States is being threatened. However in Roosevelt’s speech he wanted the people to agree to end the policy of neutrality and help our allies.
Analysis and Reflection on Nazi Revolution “Deliberate before you begin, then execute with vigor”. Hitler followed this folk adage and implements it well. However, his behavior is not in a good faith. It is hard to imagine that an ineducation person took the whole country as a war apparatus to achieve his horrible goal. Human beings need to reflect on that terrifying disaster.
Just as Nazi Germany blamed the Jews, handicapped, gays, and other minorities for the tragedies that the country were trying so desperately to overcome; the Oceania government used whichever society, Eastasia or Eurasia, they felt like. Constantly switching between the two and feeding Oceanias inhabitants lies about the others. Once this “groupthink” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) is widely tolerated something “can go from being wrong or weird to acceptable and normal very quickly” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) . There is a domino effect and people begin to fall in line so to speak. It is easier to agree with what seems to be the majority than it is to disagree.
The peace treaty of Versailles had created a lot of hatred between nations, especially Germany, which was left humiliated and isolated. When Germany gained power again and resisted the obligations of Versailles, other European powers became alert and saw the need for new alliances. They all feared another war. Nationalist fascist leaders gained power in Germany, Italy, and Spain. These nations were very militaristic and probed for a new war, especially Germany.
The Treaty of Versailles had an immense significance over Germany in 1919-1939 as it would cause large political, economical, financial, geographical, and military changes for Germany and would result in the rise of the Nazis. The Treaty of Versailles was a treaty to help “settle” international conflicts after World War 1 by deciding who was responsible for the war and how they should be punished. The treaty was written up by Great Britain, France, and The United States of America. Germany was ultimately decided as responsible for the war and was punished heavily as a result. This was in large part due to the complaints of George Clemenceau about the treaty’s original leniency.
This is to tell how Adolf Hitler changed Germany, Jewish people, And how people look at Germans and Swastikas. Adolf Hitler was Austrian born in April 20, 1889. Hitler also wanted to rule the world under his and only his command. Adolf also changed Germany by Killing and going against jews. Hitler also changed the jewish religion by killing jews and making them look bad and also causing them to switch religions by causing fear into them.
Marshall Aid contributed to the deteriorating relations between the two super powers after 1945. The USSR questioned American motives to provide aid to European countries and declared it as expansionist. In Truman’s address to the joint session of Congress 1947 he stated that he “believe(d) that it must be the policy of the United States to support free peoples who are resisting” he then follows on to say “The peoples of a number of countries of the world have recently had totalitarian regimes forced upon them… the coercion and intimidation, in violation of the Yalta agreement in Poland, Rumania and Bulgaria” . Mentioning the new soviet satellite states was directly attacking the Soviet Union and Stalin. In this speech Truman is trying to sell the Truman Doctrine to Congress emphasising the need to adopt a policy of containment, in order to address a significant issue at the time – the fear of communism.
The SS played a big role in trying to remove every single Jew from Europe. Nazi Propaganda was a way to try to force people to think about a certain way and to spread the ideals of National Socialism. National Socialism included racism, antisemitism, and anti Bolshevism. When Hitler came into power, he aimed to ensure that the Nazi message was communicated successfully through art, music, theater, films, books, radio, educational materials, and the press. Euthanasia is the practice of ending life to relieve pain and suffering.
Germany attacked Poland, however President Roosevelt didn’t pay any attention to it until Germany’s leader, Adolf Hitler, encouraged Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused a great deal of damage and enraged the Americans. We were in need of soldiers because the ones who were guarding or working at Pearl harbor were either
United States entering World War 2 was the turning point of the war for the Allies. The Allies were being bomb by air and losing on every front of the war, from England to Africa and beyond. The United States wanted to stay neutral and did so for the first 2 years of the war. The United States used economic sanctions on Japan to try and deter their aggression in Asia and the Pacific. They supplied Britain, Soviet Union and China with war materials and even deployed troops to Iceland, relieving Britain soldiers.
The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was the final action that brought the U.S. into WWII. When the U.S. joined the war, they sided with the Allies. The major Allies were the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. The Allies worked together to defeat the The attack changed many Americans opinion on whether or not the U.S. should become involved in the war. Many citizens now wanted to become involved in the war effort to help the Allies win the war.
The Central Intelligence Agency as well as the Federal Bureau of Investigation saw communism as counterintuitive to American ideals. (House of Un-American Committee) Therefore, the expansion of communism was seen as an unacceptable threat to American power and interest. In 1949, the House of Un-American Activity Committee became a permanent congressional committee. (Oodman) Furthermore, the invention of the atomic bomb by the Soviet Union in 1949 only further fueled America’s fear of communist imperialism. As the first chairman of the House, Martin Dies, established the rules of engagement for the federal government’s investigation of communist activities in America.
If one would argue that the origins of the Cold War should be traced to World War II and the breakdown of the wartime alliance between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. This all started by one act of betrayal. For example in Document C where Soviet Ambassador Nikolai Novikov states that “ The foreign policy of the United States ,which reflects the imperialist tendencies of American monopolistic capital, is characterized in the postwar period by striving for world supremacy.” The belief that freedom and democracy would die under the communist rule caused the United States to start a problem or feud that would last for a long time. The decisions made by the United States in W.W.II caused tensions to start between the U. S. and the Soviet Union. Communism spread though the nation.
