Caesar made many choices that impacted Rome.
All these strategies, advantages, and disadvantages are just some of the reasons why the British were successful in their attack. As a result, the British were able to burn the Capitol, the White House, the Library of Congress, the War Office, and the Navy Yard in their attack. However, after the British were victorious the British made efforts to be respectful with their treatment of the locals. Admiral Cockburn and General Ross followed strict rules of engagement and did not destroy any private property; they said: “Their war was with the government
Guns, Germs, and Steel were the main cause of the fall of the Inca Empire. The fall was caused because of Francisco Pizarro whose army was small but way more high tech then the Incas. The Incas thought they could never be defeated but Pizarro lead to their defeat because of guns, germs, and steel. The Inca empire was defeated because of guns. Pizarro had guns that weren’t very accurate but scared the Incas away because of their loud booms, This made the Incas run and try to escape but they couldn’t and lots of Incas died.
In 2011 many countries in the Middle East rose up and revolted against their oppressive authoritarian leaders. The citizens in these countries wanted the rights and freedoms they had been denied when the dictators were in power. The governments in these countries had far too much power and the there was nothing to keep them from abusing their power. When the citizens had far too few rights and there were laws in place to keep them from doing anything about it.
The Mongols sometimes slaughter, destroy then burn entire cities. This, in turn, caused other cities nervousness and would surrender rather than fight the Mongols in fear that they might end up just like them. Because the Mongols were good at all aspects of warfare they were successful in conquering
While early Germans did use limited cavalry, their mounted men were not that efficient. They held onto the horse only by pressing their knees into the sides of the horse, therefore could only attack with bows, or by sword with the power of their arms, they had no rigid base to keep them secure on the horse. When the potential of the stirrup was realized in western Europe, weaponry began to change in order to take advantage of the power it gives a rider. The new heavily armored knight was much more powerful than the infantry of the past. While these new knights were more powerful, they were also much more expensive.
Which meant that he issued taxes and wanted to control the colonist’s life. But, doing so, he angered many people in the colonies and made most of the colonists want to leave and from britain even more than they already did. There were three reasons that made the colonists really mad and made them want to leave. Doing these things were also part of his obsession to control the colonists’ lives: first, him and parliament passed tremendous amounts of acts that costs the colonists a lot of money. Second, he passed the Proclamation of 1763 which stated that the colonists couldn 't move past the Appalachian mountains.
The Nomadic Tribes are mostly Arabs. There was aggression between the two groups long before there was an established government. The Government was favouring the Nomadic Tribes over the farmers, so this favoritism caused even more violence. There was violence because the rebels were attacking the government institutions, so that provoked more hostility between the Arabs and the farmers. There is no remedy for this problem
Even if the military wasn’t committing acts of violence against the people, their presence alone created an underlying hatred between the two sides. However, the British were in fact committing acts of violence against the people, angering them even more. The colonists felt robbed of their freedom, because they were constantly watched, aggravated and abused. The military presence could possibly have been tolerated, and the abuses made up for, had justice been administered to the soldiers committing the crimes. However, the use of mock trials was adding insult to injury, and made the colonists feel even more powerless.
Their fighting style consisted mainly of full frontal charges. While this tactic would from time to time be affected at first, it would not help against a shield wall, in that era, it would be a line of soldiers, not as effective but can still hold the line. Then you have the factor of the charge failing from, either the loss of morale from your men or it was just a plain awful charge. Another fighting style used by the Celts was guerilla warfare, where you ambushed the enemy from all sides the left the area to perform it
Many people including kids, fathers, mothers, priest, and many more lives were lost, due to the mongols need for war. The mongols would also shoot their own dead using catapults. Because of this the plague known as the Black Death started to spread to the rest of Europe. The christian were not as bad, sure they would kill and rape like the mongols did, but they did not take it to the extremes of the mongols.
The effect this had on likelihood of death is evidenced by the fact that non-German Witnesses had a much higher death rate than German Witnesses. SS chief Hienrich Himmler had admiration for how strongly the Witnesses stuck by their faith. Himmler said SS men needed to have the same “Unshakeable faith” in Adolf Hitler. C. This project tells us historical facts are not always accurate because record keeping is not always a primary concern or because records have been lost.
The advantages that the Spanish had over the Native Americans were extensive; including their weaponry and manpower but especially their vigilance towards the enemy “... for even if the Mexicans sued for peace again, he dared not trust them” (The Conquistadors, Hammond Innes, 1969). This was because the Spanish had a goal of domination and conquest, while the Aztec and the Incas were often ignorant and initially had no great fears of the Europeans. With the power of muskets, cannons, warships and more advanced technology, the Europeans were able to conquer and overwhelmed the Natives. While also leaving them in awe after creating great sounds with their firearms, they used the intimidation and fury of battle to scare the Indians. A large percentage
One of the differences between the Aztecs and the Roma Empire is that while they the Roman Empire occupied a large extensive territory in the west Mediterranean, the Aztecans were located in a small territory in Mexica with the concentration in Tenochtitlan with was rich in gold. Another difference of this empires is that the Azteca’s existences was very short, two hundred years, due to Spanish armed invasion leading for Hernan Cortes while the Western Roman Empire last for thousand years.
