Instead, it is Germany’s Military reorganization because it reduced Germany’s military which made them feel weak and trapped which for a nationalism country, it is the worst to no longer feel the pride in your country the you used to. These four ways the Treaty of Versailles punished Germany after WWI helped the Treaty to be the cause of WWII. On that note I will leave you with, do you still believe one document couldn’t have helped to start World War
Moreover, the German revolution caused endless chaos and tension in Germany, stealing away the soldiers’ focus on victory in WW1, therefore negatively affecting their performance & sparking their defeat in WW1. The figure above (Figure 2: German Revolution), shows one of the demonstrations in the German revolution. However, the German revolution stemmed many changes into the German authority, as the Kaiser was coerced to resign & Germany was announced a republic. (Figure 2: German Revolution) In conclusion, many different factors combined led to the German defeat in WW1, including the US entry into WW1, the naval factors, the authoritative factors, the blockades and the failure of the U-boat campaign as well as the Ludendorff offensive. Moreover, these factors are highly related, as the entry of the US was the main factor that gave rise to their defeat, and most of the other causes were an upshot of the US entry into
Propaganda was a ploy commonly used throughout history that deceived many with images deliberately created for people to carry out certain acts or believe in false ideas. Such is the poster depicting the German Kaiser, Wilhelm II under a massive, silver coin. The first world war had been taking a toll on the British economy. Britain was not prepared for the financial demands that war posed and as a result, an increased number of people were paying income tax and the British government decided upon taking the civilians’ money as well. On the other hand, in Germany, both civilians and soldiers were facing starvation due to German supply lines being cut off.
Germany had been an empire until the First World War, the loss of which shook the German people to their very foundations. The psychological impact of going from an empire to a defeated nation was utterly traumatic. At the same time, Marxism was raging throughout Europe, toppling numerous governments and seen as a threat everywhere by the establishments. Hitler made people feel they were great again and played to their nationalistic and patriotic sentiments. It was easier for people to believe they were great and stab them in the back than to believe they had been failures and deserved what was happening to them.
One of the main reasons for the Axis losing the war, or the Allie’s winning it, was war production. The disparity between Germany’s, Japan’s, the Soviet Union’s, Great Britain 's and the United State’s resources played a consequential role in the turning point of the war in 1942. It was more than just the natural resources that caused this great divide; it was also the man- or shall we say woman- power that each country had backing them. Countries such as Germany barred women from entering a non-domestic workforce until they were so low on manpower and production that it was too late. While places such as the UK used women to the fullest extent in the task and labor force and even allowed them into low risk military jobs.
Any boat that came near them would be targeted. Many Americans were on board the British ship. Britain knew how dangerous it was to set sail, and warned the captain(Lusitania par 5). People disagreed with that and stated that the Lusitania was too fast and big to be targeted by the Germans (Sinking 17). Germany and Britain had been at war for just about a year when the Lusitania sunk (Ballard par 4).
The Allied Countries were the main top reason why the Holocaust happened the way it did. "We could hear the cannons very close buy. But we no longer had the strength or courage to think that the Germans would run out of time, that the Russians would reach us before being evacuated." (95-96) Now the prisoners could hear the cannons from the USSR or Soviet Union, so this explains that the Allied Countries did try to help but it just was not fast enough in that so many people were already killed by this time. Another important detail about this group of people is "The SS were headed toward the solitary confinement cell."
World War II introduced the most dangerous weapon in the world, the atomic bomb. When the US used it on Japan we went to far and caused unnecessary damage to the people. Many people believe this to the only truth but, the real truth is that dropping the atomic bomb was a necessary evil we had to use in order to win the war in World War II and future wars to come. It save many american soldiers lives, stopped the Soviets from joining, and helped us win against Japan. First and foremost, World War II caused many casualties for both sides of the war.
Hundreds of thousands of innocent lives were lost as a result of the bombings. America wasn’t justified in their actions. Secretary of War, Henry Lewis Stimson expressed that “Japan had no allies; its navy was almost destroyed; its islands were under a naval blockade; and its cities were undergoing concentrated air attacks.” I believe that a combination of the threat of the Soviet entry in the war and targeting cities that were economically dependent on foreign sources for food and raw materials would have been enough. It is clear that our military was more interested in its devastating effect, a quick and easy end to the war6. As Japan was already on the brink of collapsing, this was a way for America to display US supremacy and instill fear within other countries (i.e
This period, came to be known for the aggressiveness of the working class, was called “The Red Two Years”. The occupations of factories, riots and occasional violence were all as a result of the impact of the Russian Revolution on the Italian workers. The population was losing hope that the government could deal with the difficult situation, and a fear that a revolution might take place soon, made a lot of people desirous of a different, stronger government. Fascists used the nation’s fear of Bolshevism to rise to power. (The Fascist Experience in Italy and “The many problems and failures of Liberal Italy led the establishment to turn to
