Georgeanna Cannon Period 5th 3-16-17 The Schlieffen Plan The Schlieffen Plan was a complex and well thought out plan produced by the German forces. General count Alfred von Schlieffen was the ultimate creator of the plan in December 1905. The main idea of the plan was to defeat France. The plan was designed in a fast pace nature.
The Dieppe Raid was a failure! The raid was a failure because even though it taught troops many lessons to help them with future raids and battles, it failed and many soldiers lost their lives for nothing but defeat. The Dieppe Raid involved troops making mistakes that could have been prevented, although Canada learned from her mistakes and the learning helped with future battles, Canada didn’t win the raid nor did Canada complete their mission. Canada made many mistakes before and during the Dieppe Raid. Most if not all of Canada’s mistakes could have been prevented.
The third reason why Germany caused World War 1 is because Germany had the opportunity to start a war that would gain them land. Germany was an industrial powerhouse, and once again Document C shows that Germany had the most money to spend on armies and navies. With Germany spending approximately 115 million British pounds, exceeding Russia 's 90 million British points spent on armaments, it can be inferred that Germany took this opportunity to start a war. Germany knew that a war would help them gain land and remove their burden. Using Austria-Hungary 's war, Germany definitely had the opportunity to side with Austria-Hungary and obtain Russia to relieve their burden.
In 1914 a war that brought the world together, sparked by the assassination of Austria-Hungary’s heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, by an assassin from Serbia. Austria-Hungary coming to a point where they blamed Serbia for being behind the assassination requests that Germans back them up when they declare war on Serbia. But there was more to the cause of the World War 1 than what meets the eye.
They have never seen this style of fighting before and were not ready. The surprise attacks could not be stopped. The British did not expect to be fighting a war like this and had no idea how to counter it. The Americans strategy was t use guerilla warfare and it worked for them the British were completely thrown off guard by this and it cost them the war in the
In order for the Americans to successfully win the war, they would have to train their military force and learn military tactics to best ambush the British. For the Americans, there were several challenges to overcome, and several decisions on how to overcome them, which ultimately decided the outcome of the war. To begin, The American Revolution was an important event for the North American continent. Although the Patriots had many weaknesses in the Revolutionary War, their alliance with French soldiers and their intense knowledge of the land led to their success.
Nationalism, Militarism, and the alliance system combined with the spark of a tragedy was all it took to throw the world into a blaze of chaos. From assignation combined with rivalry spawned a conflict that no nation in the world would be free of. The rivalry between the countries of Europe creating militaries inflated to sizes never need other than to be to bigger army. The nationalism putting stress onto the people and leaders of each country, as pride in one’s nation shifts from a force for good to a cause of war. The alliance system aided by Nationalism and Militarism caused one of the largest conflicts of the world.
To begin with, the cause of militarism started growing because of the competition between European powers wanting to grow their militaries and preparing them for war. Countries wanted to built up a strong powerful army/navy to give the nations the means and will to start war. New weapons were created and produced before 1914. This lead to Great Britain and Germany increasing
“Germany worried about one day having to fight a war on two fronts or two different bodies” (European Alliances, 1914). In this map, it was stating how the country, Germany, was worried about being surrounded by countries they were not allied with, but those countries were allied together. This is one of the causes of World War I due to the countries being allied
The cause of WW1 wasn’t just one event, but multiple things that added up: classes, nationalism, and alliances between countries. As the war was about to start, the countries prepared for battle, although they didn’t know the outcome but they were ready to fight to the death. By 1914, the power key that was imperial alliances had been given a crucial spark; the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand triggered series of war declarations that would eventually grow into the most devastating war the world had ever experienced. Archduke Franz Ferdinand was nephew Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
The war of 1812 was an armed military conflict between the United States and the British Empire, which comprised of the Great Britain, Ireland and its colonies in North America. It was commenced on June 18th, 1812 by the United States and lasted for another two and a half years. At that time, the Great Britain was the greatest naval power in the world. The United States viewed this as a war on its own whereas Europe viewed it as grounds for the Napoleon wars, since it was caused by issues related to that war. However, this war had a large impact on the future of the United States.
Before the battle, Germany was on a roll in the eastern front, they captured Kiev, cut off supplies to Leningrad, and bombed Moscow (Russia’s capital). Fortunately, the United State’s Lend-Lease Act came to Russia’s aid to stove off the Nazi’s attack, but the Nazis were relentless. Their next move was to capture the city of Stalingrad, if they were successful Russia’s oil supply would be cut off from them. Oil was a major resource in the war, it was used to make bombs, lubricate guns, and fuel tanks. So, if Germany captured Stalingrad, the allies would have quickly run out of supplies and lose the war within months.
But with the union retreating Lee still thought he was in good shape to win the battle. But he was mistaken because the first day of fighting had cost him too much and he drove the Union forces onto some excellent defensive to rain outside of Gettysburg. With these great positions the union soldiers were able to defend successive confederate attacks. The union 's position had great natural barriers that made it hard for the Confederates to
Why? Because in each country [of Europe] political and military leaders did certain things that led to the mobilization [of troops].” Leaders wanted the best military in Europe, even the world, which meant they tried to beat friends and enemies alike. This made for the means for Europe to break into a world-scale
That did not last long because when Germany started to get defeated they attack and got back their land. Some of the long term impacts are an effect of some of the short term impacts. A major thing that affect a short term impact is many Austria were killed because United nations failed to do anything to help them before it was too late. One thing that stands on its own is the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It was a major catastrophe that killed many American soldiers.
