Lee argues “Lenin’s diplomacy… ensured Bolshevik survival in this crucial period” . This correctly recognises Lenin’s key role in the Bolshevik success. The Reds’ organisation and control from the central government was hugely important for their win. In August 1918, Lenin finalised a trade agreement where the Bolsheviks were to pay six billion marks and provide Germany with one-quarter of the oil production of Baku on the Caspian Sea.

At the time Russia and France were enemy countries and because of that Germany needed to protect themselves, so they spent millions and millions of dollars on building an army and navy to protect themselves even without a war going on. This article is one way that shows that militarism is the main cause of World War 1, but another example is the speech of Bernhard von Bulow where he talks about how the Germans needed to build an army.

Since the end of World War I, the French Air Force had been seriously dismissed, as military pioneers liked to burn through cash on ground armed forces and static strongholds to battle a different universe War I-style war. Thus, by 1940, the French Air Force had just 1562 planes and was as one with 1070 RAF planes confronting 5,638 Luftwaffe contenders and warrior aircraft.

In the United States there were countless reform movements that took place to help shape our very own United States.

In the United States of America, the late 19th century proved to be a time of much change. With change, there was no shortage of challenges being presented to the country and its leaders. One of those leaders during that time was President Ulysses S. Grant, who came to recognize some of the biggest challenges would be the country’s negative economy and fair equal treatment to all citizens of the U.S. Another man that recognized some major challenges facing the U.S. at that time was Frederick Jackson Turner.

This fire wasn't even the worst one in history the General Slocum resulted in more deaths years prior but I guess the old saying rings true its better late than never reguarding building and fire codes.
