Altogether, the advances made by Napoleon changed the course of European history, inspiring other European countries to fight for independence over tyranny, by appearing as a hero to some and a tyrant to others. To many in France, Napoleon was viewed as a hero with great power. Napoleon was an inspirational leader of his men. In Document 1, Napoleon addressed his army before they embarked on a campaign. He promised to lead them into “the most fertile plains”.
Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin, were indeed three of the most powerful leaders in the history who had left lots of impacts behind, either good or bad. These men were not only each triumphant in their time periods and in their countries, but also the people who have shaped the world today. Out of these three leaders, Napoleon had the greatest impact; more specifically, he has fundamentally influenced the modern Europe the most by establishing nationalism, realizing the importance of intellectual development, and by exercising his Code Napoleon. All of these actions were important because they took a step toward the modern democracy. On the other hand, the other two totalitarian leaders failed to fundamentally change Europe;
Julius Caesar is considered one of the world’s best military leaders. He is known for his military power that influenced Rome from 60 B.C. - 44 B.C. He played a huge role in how Rome developed throughout the years because of his military contributions that either played a positive or a negative effect on Roman society. Caesar put in a lot of his effort and energy during the first triumvirate on the conquest of Gaul.
The Napoleonic code was Napoleon’s Greatest Civil Achievement which was a big success for him. I am now going to inform you about how Napoleon was a hero to the people of France because of Public Education, Public Works, and Napoleonic code. The reform of Public Education was a good thing for the people. Napoleon believed that we needed more educated people and educated leaders. Napoleon made Education Universal to the people.
In Caesars case he realized that Rome needed an economic overhaul because the nobles owned all the land, and the slaves did all the work so the people in the middle class and lower class had no jobs. Caesar made laws that would redistribute land from the nobles and give it to poor and middle class. In addition he also created the Gregorian month system and the names that he gave for the months are still the months we use today. In the case of Napoleon, he formed a the French banking system that is still used in 2015, rebuilt Paris after the French Revolution, created a fair justice system, and created stability and order in France after the revolution. They were both similar in the way they ruled, because they did many good things that helped their nations grow, and be politically stable.
He uses great ingenuity and lateral thinking to defeat vast superior forces such as the Persian Empire. Alexander was one of the greatest leaders of all time. His history prevails to this day, and his military tactics are still studied in modern military academies. Upon his death, Alexander conquered most of the world known to the Greeks. His great ambitions lead him to believe that everything was possible.
There have been lots of great military commanders over the centuries, but one of the best ever and definitely the best in European history is Julius Caesar. The greatest military commander must have smart strategies and use their power to grow and conquer. On July 12 or 13, 100 B.C., in Rome, Italy, Caesar was born (Nice). Being a descendant of the Trojan Prince, Aeneas, he grew up to be full of himself (Nice). Though Caesar was egotistical, he was the greatest military commander in European history because his military IQ was astounding, he cared for and fought beside his men, and he also expanded the Roman Empire to its greatest lengths.
This knowledge of history can also be noted when analysing his military tactics and advancements. He wanted to fulfil this dream by taking over every nook and cranny of the European continent by overwhelming them with his huge military force. His first step to unity and aristocracy throughout Europe was to put a code that he had engineered into effect in France, the code
He thought that if they continued to persevere, they could eventually become important in the government, etc., but they should not be placed at the top with no practice or experience. On page 91 of the book, Booker says, "Nothing ever comes to one, that is worth having, except as a result of hard work. " Booker set a good example for the country by putting what he said into practice, and teaching his students to start at the beginning and work their way up. Not only did he teach them from books, but he also taught them how to build, clean, and cook. Booker looked at the trials in his life as a blessing; He saw that they strengthened and humbled him.
They wanted to have all the resources so they would be the only ones to industrialize since they thought that resources were limited. England forbade colonies to develop any domestic industry and the government controlled colonial trade. England wanted to be in control of all the resources so they could industrialize faster and then for other countries to be at their command and be known as the ‘mother country’. They were bossing all of the countries and trying to be the top country instead of thinking of joining together to become allies. According to document six, the Industrial Revolution had a negative effect for people living in England because people who were not economically stable lived in non-sanitized areas.
