Churchill is declaring that he has a specific mission to the formation of the the victory against Germany. He will stop at nothing for the win. The setting of the speech established a inspiring mood because he came with the plan to better the military so they could prepare for the war. The speech is accredited for the victory of the British against Germany. Blood, Toil, Tears, and Sweat was a speech given by Winston Churchill.
After World War 1 had ended, the world leaders spoke seriously to prevent upcoming future wars but since Hitler had come to power, Hitler violated the treaty of Versailles and began to make his army. Hitler reoccupied the Rhineland and militarized it with the army. He created a lot of many new tactics and military strategies that stunned the European nations before World War II. One of the military tactics he used was Blitzkrieg which was also known as the "Lightning war" but before that Hitler had to test it on a nation. Hitler stunned Europe with the speed and efficiency of the German attack on Poland.
Impressed with Italy's early military successes, German dictator Adolf Hitler sought to establish a relationship with Benito Mussolini; he was flattered by Hitler's overtures and interpreted the recent diplomatic and military victories as proof of his genius. By 1939, the two countries had signed a military alliance known as the "Pact of Steel." Influenced by Hitler, Mussolini instituted discrimination policies against the Jews in Italy. In 1940, Italy invaded Greece with some initial success. With Italy's resources stretched to capacity, many Italians believed the alliance with Germany would provide time to regroup.
Churchill 's speech aimed at giving hope to the people and motivating them to keep fighting against the German army. Churchill delivered his speech at a time when all the European countries were suffering from "the atrocities of the second world war." Churchill wanted to make sure that his people were not going to give up, he gave them hope, and he wanted them to know that they have a high chance of gaining victory. On June 18, 1940, Winston Churchill delivered his famous "Their Finest Hour" speech to the House of Commons. Churchill dedicated a huge part of his speech to giving a full account of what was going on in Europe and of the latest developments of
I think the most significant cause of WW1 was the alliance system. This was most important because different countries would not be involved if they weren’t allies. Before the war happened, Russia, France and Britain had formed an alliance- the Triple Entente. All three countries think that Germany would be a threat to them. Russia thinks that Germany’s army base is too big; UK thinks that Germany’s wealth and navy increased to threaten UK; The relationship between Germany and France had been sour as Germany stole a land from France, and had been in a long-standing feud with Germany from then.
The speaker is Franklin Delano Roosevelt is trying to convince congress to go to war with japan for bombing pearl harbor(December 8, 1941); The speech is a persuasive speech but also a rally at the same time because he knows that they will probably go to war, he used words such as “disastrous” and “infamy” to describe the attack on the U.S, he uses small phrases such as “last night” and “so help us god” witch gave people a sense of nationality they haven 't felt before, and made them want to get revenge and fight the japanese (japs). He uses repetition and anadiplosis to repeat his message and drive what he is saying into his spectators/listeners heads, as well as pre-empting, which makes things sound way more serious and crucial and get back at them for what they 've done. Roosevelt 's purpose was to make the people of the U.S.A. to want to fight the Japanese empire in order to get them back for what they 've done to us. President Roosevelt is addressing Congress and people of the
While France, Russia, and Britain became early on allies. and America eventually joined to help its allies, due to unrestricted submarine warfare (Adelblue “An End to the Great War”). Militarism, alliances, and nationalism fueled one of the worlds biggest wars, World War I. Militarism was one of the main causes of World War I, and was started by Social Darwinism. Each of the countries involved used their militaries to eliminate weaker groups and nations. This caused tension, leading to armies and navies expanding in each nation (Adelblue “Setting the
Regardless of the era, public support can be difficult to obtain during the war, but providing a way of an attack that lessened the bloodshed of troops and seemed more glamorous was a great ploy to get the public involved. The overall cost was another public appeal that Mitchell argued as thousands of bombers could be built for the cost of one battleship. Nonetheless, the public, United States Government, and the military all needed convincing of the need for Air Power so Mitchell continued to voice his belief that the United States needed to strengthen its power in the air. He amenably criticized the Army, Navy, and the White House by pointing out the fact that the United States was nowhere near that of other countries regarding aerial
Britain, once more, supported France when the Kaiser of Germany accused France of taking over Morocco, and started to prepare for war. These preparations also came out of Britain being uncomfortable of the fact that Germany is expanding its navy. Secondly, when Serbia doubled its size, Russia
In 1914, Britain put a distant blockade on Germany, which allowed them to control exits from the North Sea and damaged both Germany’s economy and War effort (Roskill 4: 533). Germany attempted to break Britain’s blockade, which resulted in the Battle of Jutland, in 1916. The role that other nations’ navies played was also extremely influential on the outcome of World War I. The role of naval Warfare during World War I, especially the Allied blockade of Germany, proved to be crucial in defeating the Central Powers, which consisted of Austria-Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire. The naval race between Great Britain and Germany from 1898 to 1914 caused great friction among the two nations and was one of the causes for World War I.
Sonar helped to detect submarines. However, the Germans ushered in the long range warfare with the V-1 and V-2 rockets. But in the end it was the Allies that defeated the Axis. They bomb Germany into submission. But with the end of the war in Europe the United States still had to fight the Japanese in the
The invasion of Europe to defeat the German Army had begun. America was successful in battles against German forces and would continue to push forward towards Germany. The German Commander, Adolph Hitler, did not anticipate the Allied forces being able to push the German Army back so quickly. Slowly but surely, the Allied forces were pushing back the German Army which was making the German commander very frustrated. Hitler knew he would need to come up with a plan to push back or split Allied forces.
The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was the final action that brought the U.S. into WWII. When the U.S. joined the war, they sided with the Allies. The major Allies were the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union. The Allies worked together to defeat the The attack changed many Americans opinion on whether or not the U.S. should become involved in the war. Many citizens now wanted to become involved in the war effort to help the Allies win the war.
1) Militarism- Germany, Britain, and France all wanted to build the largest armies and their navies and the battle to use them on each other Alliances- Serbia had an alliance with Russia and Austria-Hungary had an alliance with Germany which lead to more countries getting involved. Imperialism- countries sought to increase their amount of land either for cultural or economic reasons Nationalism- people thought their country was better than the others which led to more people fighting for their country 2) the official policy that was used at the start of the war was to remain neutral. Wilson had ordered that the US would trade with nations on both sides war. In the start of the war, many Americans agreed with that policy saying
As before we should be absorbing and preparing ourselves to not make the same mistakes that leaders before us has made. And the fact the book talks a lot about how the military has lost so many times due to strategic planning that has led to defeat. Seeing this now allows future leaders to know how to lead and to not cause casualties’ when it could possibly be prevented. In the book we Linn tells us how American leaders in the military assumed and therefore ended up in the wrong warfare. For example, Linn stated that: “During the Cold War, when many Americans believed they faced nuclear annihilation or communist dictatorship, the dangers posed a century earlier seemed insubstantial” (Linn, 2007).
