The Germans predicted that the French go on the offense to take Alsace-Lorraine, thus leaving Paris and the French army’s flank exposed. Helmuth von Moltke, the Chief of the German General Staff, and General Count von Schlieffen, architects of the invasion plan and students of Clausewitz, placed great emphasis on the decisive, short victory. By applying, it is possible that they oversimplified their mentor’s ideas regarding the offense. Consequently, when Germany launched the invasion in August 1914, the High Command expected a decisive victory that would quickly degrade the French army’s initiative and allow the German army to pivot east to deal with
There is no relevant soundtrack to be commented on since it only appears to fill in the gaps when there is no dialogue; this means that the director decided to make the original words from Shakespeare the absolute protagonist of the film. In my opinion, carrying the plot of Coriolanus to the twenty-first century was a superb idea because this film reaches out to the people of today in ways that Shakespeare could never have foreseen and it works just fine because while the language remains being Shakespeare’s blank verse, the political hypocrisies and the grinding of war’s engine transcend any
Not only did Belgium slow them down, but by marching through Belgium it made England enter the war against Germany. Marching through Belgium did a lot more harm then good. Not only did Belgium put a dent on plans, but the very first battle on the Western Front, the First Battle of Marne, ultimately landed the final blow to end the
They were defeated in the first Battle of the Marne. The poor communication on the frontline commanders and the Army headquarters in Berlin made it harder to pursue the Plan. Germany also withdrew a portion of their troops from France to help with the forces against Russia. This hindered Germany’s ability to defeat the French troops. The defeat of Germany lead to the era of trench warfare that became a huge part of World War I.
136)” this connects to the US risking losing everything by throwing a helping hand to the allied powers. In the novel it says, “Bel Riose traveled without escort, which is not what court etiquette prescribes (pg. 23)” this describes a Hitler figure because the Führer traveled with little security to demonstrate power. In all of these quotes Asimov is able to relate his life experiences in the real world to the characters in his fiction
In order to teach others what actually happened to millions of people during the Holocaust you need a movie that isn 't trying to protect innocence. There needs to be violence and terror, because that is truly what happened during the Holocaust. Therefore this would not be an ideal movie to show to a class while trying to learn about the Holocaust. For example; Life is Beautiful, does not show the violence which occurred within this time, it mocks the Nazi 's actions, and makes Giosúe appear oblivious to what is happening around him. When I state, the movie did not show the violence which occurred within this time, I mean during the film you never once see someone be
During the war, all of France’s luscious farms were butchered by the war, as it was fought it Fance land. Even though The U.S had the Atlantic Ocean between the path to Europe, U.S still was involved in the Holocaust greatly. Although The U.S did have a very strict immigration policy and made it difficult for Jewish refugees to obtain a visa, the majority of the immigrants were Jews. During the final solution U.S thought it would be best on not to publicly criticize the Germans. Though unrelated to Jews, the aftermath of the bombing in Pearl Harbor (December 7, 1941), led to many disputes and the U.S government segregated the Japanese from everyone else.
Hitler’s Youth was a group of young boys who were taught Nazi ideals and raised up as miniature soldiers, and girls who were also taught Nazi ideals and used to promote the creation of the Aryan race. This is a group that is not talked about often, because they weren 't necessarily on either side of the story. It is disputed that the Hitler Youth should not be remembered in a decent light, and in some ways they are right. They were a part of some really terrible acts, and technically would be considered a part of the Nazi party. However, they were not the persecutors and they were not what one typically thinks of as a victim, but in fact, they were.
The first section of the book tells about the wait and anticipation of the attack. Dwight D. Eisenhower, the General for the U.S. army who planned the D-Day attack, was forced to delay the attack many times because of inadequate weather. One of the main problems with the weather was that they need sufficient clearing in the clouds for a successful air attack. Also they wanted
The viewers of this movie were made to care about what happened to the main character, Guido, before he was even sent to the work camp. Night, though, is a better resource because it provides a heaviness that Life Is Beautiful does not give. Life Is Beautiful would not truly have an impact on the students without Night as background. Understanding the Holocaust is important because we don’t want to repeat history. While genocides are still happening, warning signs are more prominent due to the Holocaust.
Allies also used the Mulberry Harbors. These harbors sustained the fuel the Allies would need. The fuel was supplied by P.L.U.T.O ( pipeline under the ocean). I may be describing the Germans as defenseless people but they actually had intel about the attack but lacked any knowledge of where they were going to arise. Field Marshal, Erwin Rommel commanded the German forces to the north of France.
What happened at Bastogne? After the inital American advance into France after D-Day,the Americans were in control of Bastogne. This area was fairly important to both Germany and the U.S. because of the multiple connecting roads that ran through it from the Ardennes mountains. After the United States lost territoy in othes battle, it was important that they protect Bastonge in order to protect their place in Europe. Altough Germany attacked Bastonge with way more troops then the United States, the young troops skills were unable to pushed back the United States.
Roberts, the military force commander, Captain J. Hughes-Hallett, the naval force commander, and Marshal T.L. Leigh-Mallory, the air force commander. Their plan was to attack four minor points at dawn, and a main assault at Dieppe by the Canadians. But the operation results in a terrible failure, which ultimately provides them lessons and experience for the future invasion in Normandy. Since the Allies’ plan failed, there must have been factors that contributed to their defeat.
One first factor why the war was not over by Christmas 1914 was because of the failure of the Schlieffen plan. The Schlieffen Plan was the German war plan that was aiming to wn the war by taking control of Paris in 40 days, causing the French to surrender and freeing up troops to send East to fight the Russians. If nobody had inhabited Belgium or France, the plan might have worked. The plan did not take into account the possibility that the Belgians, having been promised neutrality, would become angered and would defend their country. It also did not take into account the chance that Britain would fight for Belgian neutrality too, as Germany had hoped that Britain would remain neutral.
The Allies had even planned a fake invasion from a different area of Europe to have the surprise attack. The Normandy Beach that was attacked was over 2,400 miles long. The operation was delayed because of bad weather, but it didn’t ruin the plan because the Allies were able to launch the attack the next day. (“D-Day”)
