Throughout history, there have been many events where it had a significant impact on the nation, society, or an individual. During the early 1900s, when World War I occurred, in the United States the theme of work of literatures changed due to the impact of the event. Specifically, World War 1 had its mark on the works of Ernest Hemingway. World War I was a prominent event that had a major effect on American literature itself and authors. Due to different chain of events, such as alliances within foreign countries and the death of Franz Ferdinand, it sparked the global war between the allies, including Britain, France, and Russia, and the central powers including Germany and Austria- Hungary.
1. World War I was caused by aggressive nationalism, military power and imperialism. The large military alliances and navy and arms race also contributed to World War I. But the key event that caused the First World War was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand on June 28, 1914. And then a very destructive war broke out in 1914.
Causes and Effects of WWI World War I was known as the war that would never end, however may people don’t know what happened during the war and the good things that came out of it. World War One was the bloodiest war. Approximately 37.47 million people were killed, wounded, missing, and taken as prisoners (Sacks 91). Nine million soldiers were killed and 21 million were wounded (“World War I”). More than 20,000 soldiers were killed by all explosions (Bull).
World War 1 is known as the commonly regarded as the most horrific war in the existence of man, and recounts of the war show exactly why. The nickname given to this war exemplifies the sheer magnitude of the war and its greatness as its coined the name “The Great War.” The war began in 1914 and ended in 1918 due to a cease fire, though the war lasted only 4 years its effect on the world would never be forgotten. The war exemplified many arguments but the clearest of all was the horrid combination of antiquated ideals paired with new age society and technology ultimately leading to a prolonged, destructive war. The years of peace leading up to the war amplified the war in multiple facets and paired with new age weaponry was a significant reason
In an ever-changing world, never has a war been so innovatively brutal as the First World War. One can speak of dehumanization, animalization and desensitization, evoking images of pain, terror and deadening. In his novel All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque melancholically, yet beautifully, depicts the absolute horrors of war and the way this gruesomeness affected the common soldier, analyzing both the psychological and the physical aspects, and assessing the ultimate ramification on its often-innocent victims. Through means of his pivotal narrator Paul Baümer, how effective was Remarque’s novel as a critique and debunking of World War I actually? The most obvious predominant theme of All Quiet on the Western Front is of course the incessant brutality of modern warfare, which the reader can experience in every single chapter.
For centuries, the world has been involved with battles between different countries. Many battles or wars, deal with nations trying to take over one another. This concept is defined as imperialism. For example, in World War Two Adolf Hitler tried to take over every country in the world to become a great and all mighty ruler. This lead to several deaths, according to the article World War II , written by an Associate Editor, John Graham Royde-Smith, it proclaims, “The 40,000,000–50,000,000 deaths...bloodiest conflict, as well as the largest war, in history.” Thankfully, the allied countries were able to stop the evil man from ruling the entire world.
The Middle Ages followed immediately after the fall of the Roman Empire. The Black Plague had taken millions of lives and the Hundred Years’ War had decimated the people of Europe. After that period of distress, the survivors were concerned about salvation, protection, food and shelter, political power, which came in the form of wealth, and the Church. Gothic architecture was another staple of the Middle Ages. Gothic cathedrals were looming, formidable structures with spires that pointed up towards God and the heavens.
The period in which the artwork was made was tumultuous for a large portion of the world - for Spaniards, for example, Salvador Dali particularly so. The 3 year long Second Spanish Civil War finished in 1939 dashing the trusts of the youngster republic which turned into an abusive rightist fascism. World War Two started all the while giving the whole globe the presence of war. Dali's canvas the Face of War speaks to his sentiments of war - interminably rehashing demise and rot. The hopeless face of the carcass - the appearance of war - sees just demise, talks just passing, and reflected in his eyes are the bodies whose eyes and mouths are likewise loaded with death.
World War 1, also known as the Great War was one of the most devastating human catastrophes that the world had ever seen. Europe was left in a state of ruin, an entire generation was lost and millions of civilians died as a result of this “great war.” It left a scar upon the landscape, one that quite literally resembled a wasteland. For many people, who had never experienced this kind of devastation, World War 1 was like the apocalypse come to fruition; the world and its people were forever changed as a result of the war, but out of the ashes many great modernist writers emerged. Writers like T.S. Eliot, whose wasteland seemed to capture all that had been lost, not just physically, but culturally and spiritually.
The immediate impact of this can be seen in destruction of live and physical property.it is estimated that civil war and internal violence has killed three times as many people than war between states since World War II (Miguel, Edward, Shanker Satyanath, and Ernest Sergenti. 2004). This has been gaining attention by economists of late and, there is needs to study and understand gain in-depth insight the long lasting effect that is impacted on human capital accumulation and ultimately economic development. This study will focus on the period between 2000 and 2015. During this period, outbreaks of violent conflicts between indigenous people and nomadic Hausa/Fulani settlers affected parts of Plateau, Benue and Nasarawa States, all in the Middle belt region.
