The battle of Waterloo has been described by some as "the birth of modern Europe" (Wooten). It lead to the downfall of Napoleon, "the mind that had tested the major powers of Europe" (Wooten) and his French revolutionary army a standoff. One which cost the lives of thousands of British, Prussian and French soldiers. Although the Waterloo Campaign and the battle played out over a couple of days, remembered as one of the greatest battles of the 19th century in Europe. The events before the Waterloo campaign are intriguing as they display how charismatic and persuasive leader Napoleon was.

World War 2 started on 3 September 1939. Although there were many cause for the war, like the failure of the Treaty of Versailles, threat of communism, and appeasement. Hitler and the Nazi party were the main cause, they were linked with all other causes, making them stand out as the ‘main cause’. Everything that had happened after World War 1; the Treaty of Versailles, the Great Depression, Communism and Fascism, all helped Hitler gain trust from the Germans, as he said he would ‘make Germany great again’. Starting another world war within 20 years of the ‘war that was meant to end all wars’.
At the end of WWII, many European countries had political and economic damages because of the invasion of Germany. This ruthless war affected the Europeans and made them suffer from several problems, for example, inflation, famines, and weak governments and many of them thought that they would never recover from such a massive blow. However, the countries started trying to restore their power and glory again and during this period, a man called Charles de Gaulle who was born in 1890 in Lille became the ruler of France and managed to envision it to become recognized as an effective power. This essay is about de Gaulle’s life mentioning his policy and his effect on the world. The beginning will be about his early life, then his role in WWI and WWII, after that his achievements during his presidency.
World War One had a devastating impact on Germany. Throughout World War One, the people of Germany had been led to believe by their government that they were winning the war. Government propaganda had been used to great effect. Only the military leaders like Ludendorff and Hindenburg knew the true state of Germany’s military dilemma which had become even more apparent when America had joined in the war in 1917. Germany itself was being starved of food and all goods as a result of the British Navy’s blockade of the northern ports.

One battle that stood out as one of the most costly and brutal battles to participate in was the Battle of Passchendaele. The element of mud filled craters contributed to the many casualties and upsets during the battle making the Battle of Passchendaele the worst battle for soldiers to participate in. In mid-October Candian soldiers arrived at the town of Passchendaele only to be shocked by the mass amounts of mud filled craters scattered around the landscape. The muddy landscape and rain filled craters increased the soldiers likelihood of getting injured or even killed.
As seen in William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, the fatal flaw of the great Caesar was his hubris, or pride. In my opinion, much like the main cause that led to the death of Julius Caesar, the pride – or nationalism – of the European countries resulted in the supposed “War to End all Wars.” In 1914, the European countries held great pride within themselves; always boasting about their nation’s identity along with their own desires. However, as seen within our own lives in which we witness that one egoist, our tolerance levels are tested and limited. Before the War broke out, every page of the daily newspaper in a country was chock-full of stories and articles that bragged about how that country reigns supreme among all others. Along with these
Winston Churchill once said, "There is one thing worse than fighting with allies and that is fighting without them".

Josef Stalin, Franklin Roosevelt, & Winston Churchill were great leaders in WWII, strategizing great ideas to overcome the Axis Powers. To begin, Josef Stalin you could say was a coat of many colors.
In the end, the 54th regiment volunteered to be the first wave of attack on Fort Wagner, which was basically a suicide mission. The white soldiers saluted to them. They began to see them not as some jokes, but as brothers and peers. In a nutshell, Glory is a movie that put in tons of efforts to illustrate authentic battle scenes and relationship between black soldiers and white soldiers during the Civil War, a truly sophisticated film with depth of thoughts and an excellent source for studying one of the major topics in the history of United
