This forced the Germans to dive the soldiers to both sides, This doomed Germany up until Russia had the revolution. So, although she could have won the war from the start, she lost in the Spring
It is unfair to force people to go to war, by forcing men to enlist in the army, the army force will not be as strong as it could be, and if conscription occurs, there’s an emotional toll to fighting. These few factors play a huge role in why I disagree with conscription. When the idea of conscription was passed and men were forced to fight in the war this took away the freedom of many. Conscription applied to men who were 18 years of age up to men who were 40 years of age. At the age of 18 most people are just getting out of high school, imagine coming home one day after school and having your mother and or father saying, you can not go to college or university because the government made a law saying, you have no choice but to enlist in the army.

The furious royal government responded to the "Boston Tea Party" by the Intolerable Acts of 1774, practically eliminating self-government in Massachusetts and closing Boston's port. The news of the destruction of the tea raised the spirit of resistance in the colonies. With this act, the colonists started the violent part of the revolution. It was the first attempt for the colonists to resist violently against the Great Briton. It was when all the colonists realized for the first time that they were treated wrong by the British government.
their widely differing political and religious beliefs lay at the heart of the civil war. while the cavaliers supported King Charles and his Divine Right of Kings, the roundheads fiercely opposed them and wanted king Charles under complete control from parliament for they too were angered by Charles’ dissolution of parliament.

The Causes for the American Revolution The American Revolution began its first movements following the British victory in the French and Indian war in 1763 which removed France as a major opposition in the North American affairs. Following the war, the British needed to assert taxes. In the year 1764 only, there was the Sugar Act that raised revenue for the British by increasing duties on sugar imported from the West Indies and there was also the Currency Act that banned the American colonists from issuing paper bills or bills of credit. Both acts were proposed to raise revenue without any consideration on how it would affect the colonies. When none of the colonists thought of any ways to raise revenue themselves the Stamp Act was passed in 1765.
