The article Hitler’s Gamble by Adam Tooze provides information on the different scholarly views regarding Hitler’s intent to start the Second World War. Tooze does this by examining the views of the leading historians on the topic. He looks at where the historians agree and where they disagree and concludes with his own analysis of the topic. Tooze explains that the main disagreement on the topic is regarding Hitler’s purpose for escalating international tension through the invasion of Poland. There are those historians, specifically Richard Overy and Ian Kershaw, who argued that Hitler did not intend to provoke a war over Poland.
Hitler was a Nazi. A Nazi is a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. He believed that Jews could not be Germans. Hitler believed that Communism was a huge threat to Germany and should be destroyed; however, Stalin was a Communist. “Communist party officials-including Joseph Stalin…” (P. 542).
Growing up in Concentration Camps The first quarter of the twentieth century was characterized by an unpleasant form of racism. Precisely, powerful nations like the Germans believed that the anti-socialist behavior was a hereditary trait that they needed to maintain to enhance their endeavors. When the German Nazis accented to power in 1933, they implemented authority discriminately by exploiting the weaker parties and neutralizing any potential threats. Through their popular ideology, preventive fighting of crimes, they self-bestowed the power of incarcerating any individual or groups that would be a potential threat to their rule. According to the video, Dachau Concentration Camp, the Nazi 's greatly persecuted the Romans in the twentieth
The Nazis solution to the Versailles Treaty was to reject it. They gained support from Germans by the use of their propaganda by emphasizing the already commonly held fear that if it wasn’t for the Left and their supporters the Communists who overthrow Emperor William II they would have not have lost the Great War. The Nazis also placed blame on the Jewish community with source eight’s imagery of the String-Puller either being Jewish our possibly financing those that sought to control the German people it would only push German fear even further which didn’t really need prodding due to the Great Depression. With Hitler leading the Nazi party and projecting such determination and conviction promising to face the problems that face the German people by reaching out or appealing to the small shopkeepers, craftsman, tradesman essentially the middle class citizen’s men and women as found it source nine and fourteen. In source seven having a Nazi meeting in a heavily communist quarter of Berlin was a show of force and strength along with a willingness to use that force as a propaganda tool advertising that they wouldn’t be intimidated by the communist party and would take the confrontation to them.
The red Scare was like the salem witch trials. Communism and Socialism have had a bad effect on the Twentieth Century. These forms of governments have challenged the beliefs of other governments. They have created conflict and controversy. However, these two forms of governments are influential in the fact that they have played a valuable role in shaping modern day politics.Communism was responsible for the red scare and the cold war.
Arthur Schlesinger Jr, states that ‘the Cold War in its original form was a presumably mortal antagonism, in the wake of the Second World War, between two rigidly hostile blocs (1967, 22).’ The quote embodies the power struggle that was played out between America and the Soviets during the post war era. Historians and theorists have been drawing from ideologies and different international world orders to help gain an accurate understanding of the origins of the Cold War. In a bipolar world, as described by Waltz, neither major power seeks approval with one another; they just have to cope with one another, however within great-power politics who is threatening who can create feelings of uncertainty between them and then a Cold War is born (1988, 622). The orthodox argument makes the claim that the United States was responding to the threatening nature of the USSR, despite trying to integrate
The U.S. had a completely different strategic culture that guided their Clausewitzian approach concentrating maximum forces against the Germans. The U.S. had the confidence, industrial might and massive material and resources at their disposal. Again, Roberts was correct that the majority of the disagreements regarding the Britain and the U.S. strategy for Germany between were their opposing views. The U.S. favored a Clausewitz frontal assault by massing forces while the British favored the Sun Tzu indirect peripheral
They both define deviance as “a behavior, trait, belief, or other characteristic that violates a norm and causes a negative reaction” (153). An example of deviant behavior that was portrayed in the film was Danny writing his book report on Mein Kampf written by Adolf Hitler. This is considered deviant behavior since the average person would not be so invested in the life and ideology of Hitler. This is the reason as to why Dr. Sweeney told him to rewritten his essay. Another deviant behavior exhibited by Danny was his appearance.
To begin with, the United States’ declarations of war on Germany affected German American success by showing that they may have been a threat, and this caused people to treat them badly. Furthermore, the Alien and Sedition Acts affected German American success by showing that it was okay for them to be treated as a threat which made them feel unsafe and afraid to interact with non-German
In the past, one of the most heated discussion in the field of the Nazi Germany history was the debate between the intentionalism and functionalism schools. Both sides of this debate tried to arguer the question of what led to the Holocaust. Was it Hitler himself who was the main driving force towards the Holocaust, or are their other variables that need to be considered before placing most of the blame on Hitler ? Scholars on the functionalist side believe that all of the blame for the Holocaust and Nazism can not be laid at the feet of Hitler’s hatred of the Jews, and some even argue that lower German officials started killing Jewish and other people by their own volition, although Hitler ended up approving of their actions.
