When Winston Churchill became prime minister in 1940, the course of the war changed for the best. If it wasn’t for him, Britain wouldn’t have won the war thanks to his passionate approach to standing up to Hitler. The previous prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, did not want a war. His lack of response to Hitler lead to the Munich Agreement which allowed Hitler to occupy Czechoslovakia, beginning his expansion of the Nazi Empire. (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica) When Churchill came into office, he was clear he wanted one thing: to win the war.
Roosevelt most prominently used logos and pathos to get his point across. He was the one of the most well-respected president in American history which means his ethos wasn’t questioned because people knew who he was as a person and they trusted him. He judged the logic of American’s and used that to his advantage. He informed the Americans by giving many crude examples of the consequences as to what may happen if America decides to let the Nazis take over Europe. Franklin D. Roosevelt knew just standing around would be detrimental to America and watching the Nazis take over Europe was not going to be a
With the uprising of Germany, and the beginning of submarine warfare, the Allies used “tactical and technical innovation” (pg 62) to gain a victory against the Japanese Navy, further elaborating on Overy’s more than combat outlook. In chapter three, we see wars becoming more intense. Hitler made the decision to attack Russia over Britain because he did not want to make enemies with Britain, and with Russia he had a greater chance of the outcome ending in his favor. With the Battle of Kursk, the Russian submarine’s success became, according to Overy, “the most important single victory of the war” (pg. 96).
The men retraced Doss’ steps while being shot at until they found and returned the bible to Desmond. Comparing this to the “Scarlet Letter” treatment that he initially received truly shows the heroic extent of the deeds Doss had done. I would say that the film did not affect my opinion on war very much, I have been a film buff for a long time and have seen many documentaries and have a pretty informed opinion, but it does help to solidify the harsh realities of war that are unimaginable to civilians. I believe that the film best showcases the dramatic patriotism that overtook all during the period of WWII, which resulted in many exaggerated states of mind that resulted in cases of unnecessary outcasting, immense bravery, and sacrifices for what was seen as the common good. This film; however, did introduce the topic of Conscientious Objectors being enlisted in the military that I had never even considered and I do think that it is a vastly positive idea that would help to tap the potential in troops that may not be comfortable killing others.
When the Civil War finally began, most of the nation’s wealth was situated in the the North. The industrialization of the North would give Northerners an advantage in producing guns, bullets, and other materials needed for warfare. One of the most important gun inventions was the Gatling gun. It is the ancestor of the modern machine gun, it was the most successful of several rapid-fire guns that were born before the war. Richard Gatling invented the gun in the hopes that a weapon so catastrophic in its damage would convince men to stop waging war.
These two men are known as some of the greatest men in history known for their speeches and what they took part in during the Civil Rights Movement. While Martin Luther King Jr was known for a nonviolence and taking care of situations a different way, and Malcolm X took care of things physically. King and Malcolm were two great men who impacted america greatly during the civil rights movement through many ways. While both men followed their faith and beliefs, this also affected their process of decision making. They both had a great affect on America in the 1960’s with completely different point of views, but very good speeches that will always be remembered throughout
Hitler was very proud of Germany and wanted Germany to become the powerful country it once was. Hitler was explaining to the people of Germany the actions he took and justifications of his actions towards abolition of the Treaty of Versailles. The speech showed that Hitler, the leader of Germany, had planned to abolish the Treaty of Versailles which weakened Germany immensely. To bring prosperity to Germany again, Hitler decided to reverse everything the treaty had done to Germany. The speech by Hitler showed his pride and there was hint of him rejoicing in his own achievement that he did not just pay lips service, but delivered what he promised the people.
Many of Reagan’s firmness led the destruction and downfall of the evil empire. In 1991, Reagan aggressive policies toward the Soviet Union was a factor that ended the cold war. In the other hand his opposition said that only the good fortune of sane leadership in Moscow save us all from the nuclear apocalypse. Reagan diplomatic legacy was more that his admires or critics are likely to admit. Reagan did led his country to a victory in the cold war but his great accomplishment came in his second term in office when he abandoned his earlier stance toward the soviet and took a more flexible stance to better the relations with a reformist and leader of the soviet union Mikhail Gorbachev by acting as Gorbachev partner as much as his enemy.
The power of running a country can be either put into a good persons hands or in a bad persons hands. One good example of power being put into the wrong hands comes from The Book Thief. This novel takes place during the Nazi uprum, when hitler overpowered Germany and attempted to put the Jewish race to an end and rule the world leading to overpowerment of a government, the Nazis. “The world talked it over. Newspaper headlines reveled in it.
Another particularly part of the speech that caught my eyes is towards the end when Lincoln says" The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it,far above our poor power to add or detract" to me he is showing honor for the soldiers who fought for the country. Lincoln's speech is very powerful because he made a change. It is also still remembered because it was a turning point in the civil war. What was challenging in this assignment was being able to read in between lines, at some point there were times I had to reread to get what he meant for example, the speech wasn’t just about the war as I finally read it for the 20th time . Although the speech speaks for itself, there were some confusing parts that I later understood.
Hitler had many successes in acquiring land prior to this military operation against the Soviets, and upon losing this battle it resulted in a downward spiral of losses for the Germans. It was this military failure of Hitler that paved the pathway for the allied success in World War
I would be for a draft (such as in World War Two, as a means of self preservation) as a legitimate government activity to protect the country. But not if said government is the aggressor in the conflict, or the total number of soldiers needed could be hired in another way as to not force those into the army who don’t want to serve. As a pacifist, I believe that there are better ways to solve issues that don’t include missiles and bullets. Diplomacy is the way to
Room 40 understood the coded message which mentioned this battle so the UK deployed its forces in time and and Germany lost the surprise effect. The royal Navy had 151 battleships and the German Navy 99. At the end of the battle, Britons lost more men and ships than Germans; however the Royal Navy was bigger than the Geramn navy so this battle had aminor effect on it. The Geramn Navy could not send battleships in the Atlantic easily to put Britain on its knees and destroy American battleships coming from the USA the following year, so this helped Allies to win the
Unfortunately for Germany, it didn 't. In conjunction with Hitler’s declaration of war, Pearl Harbor gave Roosevelt his much needed support to join the war in Europe and in Asia without, in a sense, consent from congress. This is considered one of the most important turning points of the war in Europe by many historians due to it marking the formation of a grand alliance of very powerful nations. These nations were the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Soviet Union against Germany. In addition to this, it explains the extremely hard roles the U.S.
