By doing this, they overthrown the poorly run government as the Russian people were in favour of a new system that would work in their favour. The Russian Revolution was triggered by the social, political and economic problems, that combined caused the Russian people to rebel. This Revolution was triggered by the poverty of the Russian people, the loss from the wars, the sneakiness of Rasputin and the failure of the Tsar, Nicholas II. The social causes of the Russian Revolution arose from centuries of oppression towards the lower classes.
Poor military, mistrust in the government, and the overwhelming size lead to the fall of the Roman Empire. Poor military decisions contributed to the downfall of the Roman Empire. In C 450 CE, the Roman military leaders made a poor decision by letting the military decide on taking away armor (Document 3). This caused more soldiers to be killed in battle because they didn’t have the proper protection.
Shocking, right? Secondly cities shrank in size and population. The population mainly shrunk because of the many deaths when Rome was attacked, people also flead from the country of Rome when the attack was going on. Many people were also sick after the war
Western Europe had been devastated by World War II: shortages of fuel, food and industrial capital goods, a drastic drop in foreign trade and the threat of inflation meant the region was in a fragile economic and political position. In this context, increased political and economic cooperation were deemed necessary in order to reconstruct a Europe ravaged by war – which led to the creation of several international organisations (many of which are still operative today). “The US began to change its policy towards the USSR in 1946–47 as its perception of the USSR’s intentions and reliability as a post-war partner who would adhere to agreements was re-evaluated” (Dedman, 2010). The Marshall Plan (1947) was set in motion by the US in order to prevent
This created an substantial amount of debt for Germany which in turn created hyperinflation which affected most of the German populace directly. Many people lost their jobs, prices of daily needs, such as bread, went up to ridiculous prices and many people lost their savings in a matter of days so Germany could start to pay off the debt they owed to the Allies. Many people started to lose faith in the Weimar government and the growing Nazi party used the failing economy as a walking-stick to help them rise to power. They presented solutions to the German people, creating a false sense of hope for the people and a volatile trust for their forthcoming policies and proposals as to how the Nazi Party would end the economic crisis and return the people to their prosperous and steady lifestyle. It was the reparations that cause the German people to no longer trust their government, but it was the Nazis who would win back the trust of the people through false
Headspin, sadness, and death, that was all the soldiers of war had known. Most remember the war for the millions of people murdered by the German Nazis, but the suffering was all over the world. The Bataan Death March was an inhumane march suffered by thousands of Americans and Filipinos after losing to the Japanese. It was a reminder to the people that the war was a time of suffering and death. The soldiers fought for their country with bravery, courage, and strength, but that wasn’t enough.
Both the French and Russian Revolutions had radical wings that got in the way of the original purpose of the Revolution. The Petrograd Soviet’s radical reforms angered the people just as the radical Mountain angered the people. Additionally, the failure of the original revolutions called for one person to stand up and overthrow the preexisting government to establish a new one. In the case of France, Napoleon staged a coup which eventually led to him crowning himself emperor and maybe in even some ways acting as a dictator. In Russia, Lenin had to step up with Trotsky’s help to overthrow the provisional government and establish his dictatorial socialist government.
Although he took charge of the Russian army, his lack of ability to efficiently command the military evolved into complete failure. The army had a shortage of ammunition, equipment and medical supplies, as well as poor leadership that also helped their defeats. Although the army had initially thrived, they had begun a series of defeats when the Tsar placed himself in command. Farmers were conscripted and trains used in battle that added to the food shortage. The Tsar was repeatedly seen as responsible for their defeats as it was his decision to take charge of the
she was marrying my uncle, my father’s brother”( Shakespeare 1.2. 144-151). Hamlet anger towards is mother has now grown the the max. Hamlets hates the fact that Gertrude husband's (Hamlet’s father) recently died and she is already moving on. He even more upset by the fact that his mom was crying over the death of his father and now she moved on so quick.
There were many problems surrounding Russia and its political system. Tsar Nicholas II was Russia’s leader but a very poor one at that. He was the cause for many of Russia’s problems including the failures in the Russo-Japanese war and World War I. When Russia first entered World War I they fared well until after some bad advice Nicholas II sought control of the army and led them to another abysmal defeat. By the end of Russia’s involvement he was sending poorly trained and ill-equipped men into battle and was losing the confidence and backing of the Russian army.
One saying that has been passed down from generation to generation is that war is always unjust and cruel. The story, My Brother Sam is Dead, by James Lincoln Collier and Christopher Collier, shows how one family was dragged into the war and split apart by it. The Meeker family experienced the unfairness of war by losing friends and family and their business suffering. War is unfair for a number of reasons. One of them is how it drags people into it.
In the document Diary of Dr. Waldo (Document C) it shows how bad the conditions were for the soldiers. The soldiers looked like they were not ready to fight. They looked like they were not prepared to fight like other soldiers. In the document Committee of Congress at Valley Forge
This positive outlook was not kept for long and as the death rate piled up and nations were not able to feed their people, women growing accustomed to, ¨empty hands and still emptier stomachs,¨(Document 6). By 1916 the outlook had changed and many people did not glorify war but saw it as the devastating event it truly was. ¨Gone was the euphoria. Gone the Patriotic noise in the streets,¨ (Document 7), writes a German socialist Rosa Luxemburg who describes his town in which there was ¨misery and despair everywhere,¨ (Document 7). By 1916 the war had become unpopular and many were ready to be out of it
World War I and World War II both left European states in ruins, many civilians devastated, the most casualties seen in any war and the economy in shambles. Consequently, the decline of entire empires left many people with confused identities, as these countries were acquired by other countries. The wars would have also established the formation of alliances. The aftermath forced world leaders to take on the task of reconstructing what had been destroyed. These leaders knew that the peace they had sought out in the postwar era was only temporary, but little did they know that the settlements of the First Great War would lead to another war, much more destructive than the previous one.
There are so many soldiers getting sick with smallpox (Root) and other illnesses, there is a high chance I will get sick too. I overheard General Washington speaking to one of the surgeons concerning the health of our troop. 49% of all of the soldiers are sick. 1800 to 2500 of these die (Busch, 147) including one of my dear childhood friends that came with me to fight the war. I walk by my fellow soldiers and cringe at the sight of some with missing toes or worse (Powell, 149).
