There wouldn’t be anything or anybody to stop him, so why should he stop taking over more land to grow his power. If Adolf Hitler is not threatened, there wouldn’t be a reason to stop invading other territories. If he is not placed under pressure then he will be given time to think out his plans to successfully
These are weapons, one of which can destroy a whole city and make it inappropriate for living for many years after the explosion. Therefore, these people believe that if a third world war starts then that would be the end of this world. I accept if such weapons are used in a war, then it can destroy a complete nation or even the whole world if it’s a world war, but I believe that the creation of these weapons has guaranteed that a third world war will never happen. I believe so because in the past politicians waged war to get control over more areas. They didn’t wage war until they were sure of their victory, but with today’s weapons, there would be no winner, as no one would exist, if a war is waged.
When a fire started in the Reichstag building, Hitler used it as a way to start series of terrorist acts against politicians he considered enemies (“Hitler, Adolf”). Hitler claimed that these politicians were part of a Communist plan. By influencing the public, Hitler gained special powers to “protect the nation against possible Communist acts of violence” (“Hitler, Adolf”). Hitler went a long way by being influential. Anyone that he didn’t want alive, didn’t have much of a chance to survive.
World War one, also known as the war to end all wars, lasted from 28 July 1914 to 11 November 1918. Germany was one of the central powers in World War One. Their biggest enemy was the Allied forces. Throughout the war, many factors such as the failure of Schlieffen Plan and the unrestricted submarine warfare had brought Germany closer and closer to failure in World War one. On 11 November 1918, Germany finally surrendered .They then received a lot of consequences such as the treaty of Versailles.
In the sixty years since World War 2, President Truman 's decision to drop the atomic bombs on Japan has been questioned by many people. The bombing caused many deaths but also clearly marked the end of the long drawn-out war. The justifications for the bombing are still however a widely discussed debate. Arguments supporting the justification of the bombing involve the President 's stern belief that the Japanese had brought it on themselves, and that the bombing would end the war and save many American lives. The counter-arguments were that the Japanese were already defeated and so ‘why was it necessary to drop the bomb?”.
Stalin’s plan was to improve his military for future conflict and he would do this while Germany entered into hostility with Britain. The Pact bought Stalin some extra time to do this. The Soviets did not want a future where a powerful and victorious Germany would be their next door neighbour (Gorodetsky 1990, p29). In September 1939 Hitler invaded Poland. Neither Hitler nor Stalin had foreseen that this would lead to the Western Allies declaring war on Germany on the first of September 1939.
Hitler was given minor opportunities in power. “Some Nazis, led by Gregor Strasser, the most prominent socialist-minded member in the party grew impatient and urged Hitler to exploit the unstable political situation by directing the SA to overthrow the government and take power by force.” Hitler rejected the offer to overthrow the government, he then was asked by by Hindenburg to serve as Vice-Chancellor under Von Papen. Hitler also refused this offer saying, “He wanted the Chancellorship and calculated that as the leader of the largest single party that prize could not long be denied him.” Hitler had confidence that he could become Chancellor of Germany without any of the two opportunities offered to him. He felt that because he was the leader of the Nazis that he would win and that no one could deny him as opportunity as Chancellor. Hitler and the Nazis gained a large amount of support and Hitler stood behind the scenes in politics and kept his hands clean which was very wise and worked to his advantage.
Hitler’s organisation skills and personal traits helped to bring the Naizs into power. However, without the socio-economic problems that Germany encountered and the weakness of their political situation, Hitler would not have had the opportunity to come into power and destory democracy in 1933. In 1918, a republic was announced with the socialist Frederich Ebert as chancellor. Ebert wanted to sign the armistice with allies (Tonge, 2009 p.50). In 1919, the Treaty of Versailles was signed and article 231 of the treaty blamed the whole of the First World War on Germany.
The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless. Hitler had become a chancellor in January 1933 but the people did not want him as thier chancellor (Colbert 2) The Natzis killed 11 million people in total and 6 million Jews were dead and the population was hit so much it almost decreased half the population (Metzer 89). At last the Germans surrendered and ended World War 2 on May 8th and let peace arise (Metzer
World War II introduced the most dangerous weapon in the world, the atomic bomb. When the US used it on Japan we went to far and caused unnecessary damage to the people. Many people believe this to the only truth but, the real truth is that dropping the atomic bomb was a necessary evil we had to use in order to win the war in World War II and future wars to come. It save many american soldiers lives, stopped the Soviets from joining, and helped us win against Japan. First and foremost, World War II caused many casualties for both sides of the war.
