Livy believed that the Second Punic War was started by the siege of Saguntum by the Carthaginian Commander Hannibal and that this violated past treaties which left Rome no choice but to declare war on Carthage. In addition he believed the events that caused the war were entirely the fault of Carthage and that Rome did everything possible to prevent the dispute with Carthage from escalating. However there are inconsistencies in his work which undermine his reliability as a historian. The event that started the Second Punic War between Rome and Carthage was the siege of Saguntum by Hannibal.
According to Mr. Kim’s lecture on World War Two, both of these dictators had developed new and advanced war-machinery in order to prepare to gain European ascendancy. Germany and Italy, the two dictator’s home countries, had even allied together to create the Axis powers, Mussolini was able to easily capture Ethiopia, as Ethiopia’s primitive spears were no match against Italian tanks and guns. Although extreme, this was the first conflict in which advanced technology was necessary in order to advance in war. After Hitler grew to power, he began his plans to capture and annex the whole world into the “Third Reich.” After exploiting appeasement too far, Hitler launched a Blitzkrieg, or lightning war against Poland.
Another achievement of Constantine was the foundation of the city of Constantinople, which essentially transferred the worlds Metropolis at that time from the Italian peninsula to the borders of Europe and Asia, thereby establishing it as the Eastern capital of the Roman Empire (cite). Interestingly, he was the first Roman emperor to allegedly convert or eventually transition to Christianity. The intent of this paper is to explore Constantine’s achievements and the effects that those achievements have had on history and modern day Christianity as we know it today.
This led the way into creating the United Nations. However remaining neutral wasn’t possible for the U.S., on December 7, 1941 The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor forcing America to join the war. Throughout the war Roosevelt was commander in chief in World War II, one of his greatest war moments was the invasion of Normandy, France, which was the turning point of the war defeating the Axis Powers. After the war ended, the United Nations was formed in order to create treaties and solve international
military leaders reluctantly went along with Britain’s peripheral approach, thus starting Operation Torch in the fall of 1942. The plan involved an Allied attack sweeping through German forces in North Africa, tackling Italian forces in Sicily and finally taking out Germany’s ally by invading Italy. According to Matloff, General Marshall acknowledged the advantages of this operation which would strengthen Allied air power over Germany and make way for a better Allied shipping route in the Mediterranean (689). As reported by Kent Roberts Greenfield, Chief Historian for the Department of the Army in 1946, the coalition and collaboration between the United States and Great Britain during World War II was “an unprecedented achievement in the history of nation-states” (Greenfield 43). Without their fullest cooperation, and the unique relationship between Churchill and Roosevelt, the war would not have been conducted so
Winston Churchill once said, “I think I can save the British Empire from anything - except the British.” Britain had a drastic role in World War II, which began in 1939 and ended in 1945. Britain’s role in the war involved victories in land, air, and sea battles as well as ending Hitler’s dictatorship, taking down borders, and reestablishing the United Nations. Appeasement in a political context is a policy of making political or material concessions to an enemy power in order to avoid conflict.
Inigo Jones was an Architect unlike any other in his time. He was the first English classic Architect in England under the ruling of James I and Charles I. He introduced the architecture of Ancient Rome to England in 1573-1652, which encompassed many characteristics, but mainly he introduced the idea of Vitruvius symmetry. Many historians and architects claim Inigo Jones as the father of Palladianism because of the influence his architecture had on Palladio in the later years. Unlike other architects at his time, Inigo Jones was a self-taught son of a Smithfield cloth maker.
World War II also led to more hard times in America, and Roosevelt helped lead America through it. Because WWII came in the midst of the Great Depression, Roosevelt was already busy. In order to contribute to the war effort against the Japanese and growing Nazi forces, Roosevelt helped allied countries by sending relief to places like Britain, which is only miles away the Nazi regime(Lend-Lease Act,2009). This Allied forces combat against the Axis powers until the American could fully commit to joining the war with infantry. Once this commitment happened American troops landed in Europe and helped fight against the enemy, and also contributing to the biggest battle in history, the D-Day Invasion.(A “Might Endeavor”- D Day).
Arguing that France and Britain should come together to form a military alliance with the communist Soviet Union is what caused another controversy by Churchill. Because of the way they oppressed their citizens up until this time Britain had strongly opposed the Soviet Union. Churchill saw Hitler as a top threat and knew he could not be defeated easily when World War II broke out, which is his main reason for wanting an alliance with the Soviet Union. On April 4th, 1940 Churchill was selected as the First Lord of the Admiralty and he became the Chairman of the Military Coordinating Committee. On May 10, 1940 Nazi Germany attacked France (Winston, Churchill New World Encyclopedia,2015).

However, the truth of Rome’s development is that a group of Latins settled in the area of Rome around 1000 BCE. Since this group was near the Mediterranean for trade, and Greece was close enough to also provide an influence over the culture, these few Latins created a society that thrived into the Roman Empire. As far as archeologists and historians can find, there was no brutality involved in building this society. Yet they were still able to have a thriving culture and develop over a thousand years. America is currently in the same state as the Roman Empire once was, where different ideas are being introduced and new technology is constantly being invented.
Japan had been attempting to agree Asia all through the 1930 's and 40 's. Through this time the United States had been giving supplies to Great Britain in its battle against the Nazi 's.
