France and Britain could draw men from the colonies while Russia had the largest army at the beginning of the war. Germany itself didn't have superior numbers but its army was far more equipped, well trained and organized more than its contemporaries. More men equaled more prolonged battles. Only the separate peace from Russia and inclusion of America in the war tipped the balance in the favor of the Entante. While the land battles took their toll on the manpower of countries, severely depleting it, the navy was more of a hindrance to enemies.
The Revolution began as an infringement on the rights of English citizens, not American rights. Colonial Americans were British citizens who enjoyed all the same rights as those in mainland England, possibly more so. After the French and Indian War the British government found it untenable to ignore the Colonies any longer and began
Friedlander noted that ironically, Hitler was not victorious in the war and therefore the so called perfect dominance of his master race, which had already cost the lives of millions of people, “seemed to be nothing but an imagination” (316). A similar situation occurred with the British colonists. Despite the fact that they believed their education, morals, dignity and status was above that of all their colonies they could not hold these colonies for long. They wished to share their culture with the colonial states believing that these states wished for their perfect system of rule. Unfortunately the colonies did not believe in this perfect system and most of them eventually revolted until they were granted independence.

Hardworking American soldiers are being put in dangerous missions to help ship cargo for military technology corporations. Meanwhile, all of the tax payer's money that goes to the military goes straight to corporations that focus on improving military advancement in weaponry, instead of soldiers' hospital bills or survival needs. In addition to the immoral acts of corporations, companies like Parson's Corporation are given a significant amount of money to spend, only to produce low quality products to make more money for themselves. Yet, CEOs are still living luxurious lifestyles without having to worry about a single concern. 2) “Cashing In On Terror.” By Robert Scheer, Alternet.org, October 31, 2007 Huge corporations such as Lockheed-Martin,
The Spanish Armada was a turning point in history because of the huge upset that occurred because of 3 main reasons which were the Spanish's poorly set up strategies, the English's well defended land and the timing and natural events that occurred during spain's attack. The Spanish Armada was a exciting event in history because it shows how even when all the odds are against you, you can still win. England less ships and far less men, but somehow managed to defeat the “Invincible” Spanish Armada with just a few fireships, long ranged weapons, and according to some, the help of god. The defeat of the Spanish Armada was a great phenomenon and upset that occurred in 1588. In the 16th century spain was the most powerful empire in europe with the
His success-to-failure ratio being 100:0. Alexander the Great is how the world remembers this man, because he not only valued human life and saw how important, as resources they were to his victories but also because he knew that victory did not bow down before numbers. He fought a total of 17 major battles, and won all of them. He was severely outnumbered in most of them, but, even in the worst case scenario, the army lost a meagre 16% of their soldiers. The most notable war waged by Alexander, the Battle of Gaugamela was the mind game of all mind games, in which Alexander employed two major strategies which sealed his victory over Darius and his Persian army.

Isolationism prevailed and national willingness to invest financial resources into defense was minimal. These factors especially had a major impact on British ground warfare. At the conclusion of WWI Britain had led the world in every aspect of ground warfare: theory, technology, personnel and experience. Poor funding and other factors to be covered later, let it all slip away. These problems however, weren’t
It is criticized for damaging democracy due to a major reason of the Queen retaining vast constitutional powers. But the critics ignores the fact that there is rare chance that she or her successors would actually exercise that kind of power, if they do, then Britain should consider becoming a republic. On the other hand, it is just as conceivable to mention that there are benefits to a monarchy. And what would replace the monarch? An elected and political head of state is sure to upset large section of the electorate a lot more than an uncontroversial one who is above politics and institutions (Monarch).
