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.
He gradually fell in favor with his country and received many blows to his character, until finally; Arnold forsook his country, his cause, and his people. While he hoped that his actions would be admired and that people would see him as a hero, he did not anticipate the tragedy which encompassed his entire life. His professional life never recovered from the ire and mistrust that surrounded all his ventures and he died in professional failure. In the end, perhaps the greatest tragedy of Benedict Arnold’s life is his lasting legacy of ignominy and dishonor. Thus, the story is complete; the tragedy is ended.
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.
The most important cause was military reorganization. The least important of the four causes is war guilt. The Article 231 forced Germany to take full responsibility for the war, this angered the German people. However, Hitler restored a sense of pride, reawakened a sense of self respect, forcing the world to look at Germany anew. Article 231 was viewed as a horrible
After the bombings, Dresden was a doom town, it was hard to see its beautiful architecture that was said to be the prettiest in the world. Billy fought throughout the war and stayed by his country's side and this shows his strength. The overall gist of this story is not to show a weak man, but to show someone how the war can make you unstuck in time. Billy isn't able to comprehend what is real and what isn't. In Slaughterhouse-Five the death of thousands of people changed the perception negatively of
Although there was an outpouring of adoration for the president there was also a backlash from those who were not as understanding towards the choices that were made. Barton J Bernstein said, “Leahy passionately condemned the bombings as unethical and even barbarous. Yet, the available records, including his own diary, give no indication that he expressed this opinion to Truman or to any other government associate before the bombings”(Bernstein). This simply stated the attacks were an act of barbarism and hatred towards a nation. In no way did this man support the violent attitude and responses to an attack on the United States.
The war damaged the economy, and had gone into hyperinflation, which wiped out citizens savings quickly. The long term hatred and deep anger about World War I and the Treaty of Versailles created an underlying bitterness, which made him get more supporters. Another main factor was his influential way of speaking. One way Germany got popular with the crowd was because of Hitler’s speaking ability and most importantly,
Two main examples of people who made choices that eventually led them to their downfall despite the good fate they may have had are former U.S. president Richard Nixon and athlete Tonya Harding. Although both could’ve been successful where they stood, their ambition for power and desire to eliminate all enemies that may come in their way led to their own demise. Macbeth clearly starts off in a high place in the military and in society as is proved by Duncan’s words in Act 2, Scene 2 when he says “O valiant cousin, worthy gentleman!” as well as “our captains Macbeth and Banquo.” Likewise, Richard Nixon, the thirty-seventh president of the United States was born into a fairly wealthy family. He was elected president and was living a good life. Nixon’s desire to maintain the power and gain the liking of citizens led him to making a decision without court approval when he was criticized for moving too slowly in disengaging from a war.
It is also Franklin D. Roosevelt admitting to his listeners that he is no better than anyone else and he needed the listeners of his broadcast to leave his credibility unquestioned, because he knew that alone he could not defeat this Nazi power. Franklin D. Roosevelt told it exactly how it was without sugarcoating it which I believe led many Americas to agree with his wishes for them to support the war
Emperor Tang Gao Zu, also known as Li Yuan, was a successful leader. He was the first ruler from the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Emperor Tang was very effective with the choices he decided to make for the military and taxation systems that later on paved the way for the oncoming emperors. It will be argued that Tang Gao Zu was a successful leader because he was a the one who established the Tang Dynasty The next reason why Emperor Tang was a successful leader was because he re-established a powerful military. The most significant is that he re-established a stable taxation system.
