The reason for this is because the Mongols were taking over the land of all the people unexpectedly. They were looting and pillaging anywhere that they could and they didn't care who they ended up hurting. When they went into battle the Mongol army would also rape the women that they found in the certain villages that they went to. Even with all this happening they still managed to do certain things that are
First of all, every male over the age of 14 was forced to “...undertake military duty” (Doc. B). All males had to join the army regardless of whether they believed in the cause or not. It seems cruel to force someone to experience all that bloodshed due to the amount of killing involved, the risk to their own life
During her appearance the Spaniards and Aztecs were on their way to start a war. Both the Aztecs and Spaniards had different cultures. The Aztecs worshipped Gods, to whom they would perform human sacrifices for, they sacrificed a total of 50,000 people a year. The Spaniards were disgusted by the Aztecs way of culture that they decided to be cruel to them by killing them for no reason and treating them like animals. Mary’s appearance changed everything.
King Kamehameha was also a fearless leader because he had fought in many battles not just for him but for his family and for his rights. King Kamehameha was in war when he had just killed over 200 people he got his foot stuck up under one of the most heaviest stones when his cousin took a cheap shot and hit King Kamehameha upside the head as he was unconscious and when he woke up he saw that his cousin was about to be stabbed with a spear by Keali 'i. King Kamehameha got his foot unstuck and struck Keali 'i in the back with one of Kamehameha 's spears. King Kamehameha was so very fearless that at one of the chief’s funerals Kamehameha stepped in and performed one of the most sacred dances known to man. He could 've gotten into a lot of
The Victims were racked till their bones were out of joint, and others hung up by their hands to hooks, with weights fastened to their feet. Many religious people saw the games as horrific displays of violence. During the Reign of Emperor Honorius, an Egyptian monk named Telemachus who went to Rome and soon after became outraged at what he saw. Telemachus pleaded to stop it in the name of Christ. He was stoned by the furious mob and
Out of most deaths, it looks like Tim is more impacted by Sam’s than any other. Tim is outraged that Sam is being blamed and punished for something he didn’t do just to discipline the other soldiers. Sam is accused of stealing his own cattle and is sentenced to be executed by his own side; Tim watches the execution full-heartedly, in sadness, and he even yells out during the execution, “ ‘Don’t shoot him, don’t shoot him’ and at that moment Sam slammed backwards as if he was hit by a mallet” (208). Those were Tim’s final words that Sam could here before being blasted. Sam’s passing is as ironic a death you could write for Sam because Tim expected Sam to die, if he were to die in war, in battle and have a glory story with many telling points.
He killed the solders and he took most of the men, women, and children with him. Also, I think if he returned to Arizona he can revenge and revenge his people like what he told Mr. Gatewood that he did not learn to do anything except to revenge and always will get revenge. That’s was after a year when his wife and his two girls killed by the Mexican army. He killed more than 50 soldiers in his way to the Mexican border. When Mr. Gatewood came to him at
Even worse, they beheaded children, for their own amusement. What did Columbus do? Nothing. As a leader, he never stopped his men from committing these crimes, but instead watched as the hundreds of thousands of natives committed suicide, yet, people still glorify his name. A person who can watch the murder of millions without stopping it should not have a holiday that praises his good moments and hides
The role that power and inequality play in the broader picture of service work with Native America is complicated and brutal. White men came to America and inserted their power so much so that a land once populated by millions of indigenous peoples is now, a few hundred years later, colonized, gentrified, industrialized and completely taken over. In that time, native people were murdered, given diseases, forced to migrate, used as slave labor, forced into war, “Americanized” in violent boarding schools, stripped of any traditional ways of life and pushed on to tiny reservations that are concentrations of some of the deepest poverty in the world. Though this history seems like a distant past, these same themes of forced suppression and white
Political (Leadership, citizenship, decision-making institutions) There was a strong military force with men that were trained since they were young. People rebeled against the emperor Leaders: (Include Name, Time period and achievements) Montezuma II was the emperor of the aztecs in . He was brutal leader because he always asked for sacrifices for the gods which is why they were always at war with others. This caused the people
Using excerpts from Columbus’ own journals as well as the writings of La Casas, Zinn exposes Columbus as a man who was greedy and hungry for power. He had no hesitation in torturing, enslaving and killing thousands of men, women and children in order to obtain these goals. Columbus and his motivations demonstrate a clear clash of cultures between Europeans and the Arawak. In his writings, Columbus sees that the Native Americans are strong and well-built, but have no means of weapons except spears made of canes. In Columbus’ mind, these factors make the native people the perfect subject to be conquered and made into slaves (Zinn 1).
Not wanting their men falling over dead without even being in battle, generals decided to try different tactics and variations to try take land quicker through trench warfare. They used a guerillastyle type of technique in which the land in between both armies, endorsed with the name No Man’s Land, would be sprinted through in order to get into the enemy’s trench, and then would kill as many enemies as possible. During this, they’d also try to destroy as much of the bunker as they could, and then would sprint back over to the ‘safety’ of their own trench. It was a petty way of fighting, and many good men died because of this brutal fighting type.
Ishmael Beah, author of A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, and the other boys of Sierra Leone that were enlisted to fight in the country’s civil war had their lives changed forever. The boys in the village of Yele that were recruited by the army aspired to be vengeful spirits, killing the soldiers of the rebel army that had killed their families and was the cause of their misfortune. Lieutenant Jabati and his men helped the boys to realize their suppressed rage and gave them the training that they needed to fight the rebels. Lieutenant Jabati was a figure of authority for the boys in a time of turmoil and he, along with the more senior soldiers under his command, pushed the boy soldiers to their limit, but he was not harsh with his encouragement. It must be said though, that if the boys were not recruited by the Lieutenant
