It’s 1939, Hitler has risen to power wreaking havoc on other countries. This is the start of what is known as WWII. Taking a few steps back is WWI. It all started in 1914 and ended in 1918, this is commonly referred to as the “Great War”. This war dealt with the Triple Alliance, the Triple Entente, the Central Powers, and the Allies. After this war ended on November 11, 1918, leaders from the countries made a treaty called the Treaty of Versailles. After this treaty was made, many things happened and the question in many people 's minds was how did this treaty cause WWII? The Treaty of Versailles helped cause WWII by treating Germany harshly in these three ways: Their army was reduced, they lost territory, and the number one reason is all of the blame Germany got.
Hitler was the main aggressor during 1939 who everyone appeased to, who is infamously known for his rise to power, his persecution of Jews, and his attacks on the world to dominate, that killed so many. Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister, believed in the policy of appeasement and appeased Hitler at the Munich Conference which eventually lead to the start of World War II. The Western Powers responded to aggression with appeasement, and in 1939 the world was plunged into World War II, proving to the world that collective security is a better response to aggression.
During the WWII, post WWII, and Cold War era throughout the 20th century, the United States of America was faced with many domestic and foreign conflicts. It was a time of change, action, and movements. Amidst the conflicts, the US was forced to make very controversial decisions. Through its government, the United States acted on these many problems and affected the quality of life of the people. Unfortunately, with these decisions made, the US failed to promote the liberty, equality, and justice for its citizens and the people of the world. It broke the values of democracy upon which the country was built with examples including japanese internment, WWII, the Red Scare policies, and segregation.
Some believe that the cause of WWI was only one’s need for power above all. Yet the truly, underlying causes of WWI were the alliance systems, militarism, and imperialism. The alliance systems were one aspect for the cause of WWI, for as it brought power to the weaker countries, more people were able to voice their opinions and influences others. Another component that provoked WWI was militarism, for it fed the flame of tension between the alliances, as each country wanted to be the prominent military source. Imperialism was also a key factor because it gave countries important resources as they continued to obtain smaller, weaker countries. Together these factors created something much larger than one would have guessed, for alone, the trait
Baseball has certainly changed a great deal since 1900 to the present day. The National League started in 1876. In 1901 the American League was started. Soon afterwards the World Series was created. The two leagues came together to compete in the World Series to determine which team was the world champion. The World Series has been played since 1903. It was skipped one year because it was not compulsory to accept the invitation to play against the other league. Following the 1904 season, it was made mandatory for both league champions to face off after their league's playoffs. They still do it in the same way in the present time. After thirty seven years, the 1940’s was the decade known for the biggest change in baseball, which was mainly because of the politics that happened in the early part of this decade.
The first world war is known to be one of the harshest wars in history for many reasons. One of those reasons is the unleashing of terrifying new weapons, gas weapons. Dangerous chemicals and gases have been used as weapons since thousands of years ago, though it was until World
The Pacific War could have ended if both sides were willing to cooperate with each other. I feel that if they made some sort of act they could have come to terms on what they both agree on and agree on some sort of neutrality. Putting an embargo on Japanese oil could have avoided as well. America with the hypothetical "act" they could have put a tax on oil. Even if this act only last a few years it could have changed the entire out come of the actual war and may of actually prevented the war itself.
Great Britain and the Turkish Empire crossed paths during the 19th century as a result of Western Europe’s involvement in the Crimean War. The Turkish Empire was already weak from internal unrest, but Russia’s threats burdened the empire further and this eventually lead to the Crimean war. Turks were struggling
What was the main cause that started WW1? For many years, this has been a question that many historians have asked themselves. Many of them believe that Germany was the country who started the war and I agree with this. I think that Germany led to the beginning of the war because of many reasons.
The end of the Cold War marked the reign of the US as a sole superpower in international relations(IR). Along side other countries in IR, Italy and Germany both wanted to build an even stronger diplomatic relationship with the US than they already had. The Marshall Plan was a major factor behind this, but there were other significant reasons for it too. For Italy, this was because they politically did not want to remain as an ‘an uninfluential player in world affairs’ (Partridge, 1998, p172). To prevent this, they needed to extend their influence internationally and they knew that if they ensured a stable relation with the US after its Cold War victory, it would secure this for them. This was because USA at the time were biggest influencers in
The sinking of the Lusitania was not caused by a natural disaster, but was purposefully sunk in spite of a war. The Lusitania was one of the most famous shipwrecks in history, other than the Titanic, because it was the start of the World War I. America has definitely gone through the worst of times. What is so great about America, though, is that everyone unites together to fix a problem. Many passengers arrived for a relaxing, wonderful cruise but found themselves thrown into chaos as a torpedo entered the ship. This caused America to help out in the war by lending Britain equipment, soldiers, and jobs during this tough time.
The bombing of Japan is a day that we shall never forget. Some people believe that it was necessary to drop the bomb in order to end the war as quickly as possible while others believe that it was unneeded and completely immoral. The question will always be asked, does the pros of the bombing outweigh the cons? Would it have been morally responsible to invade Japan instead? The morals of the bombing are in the eye of the beholder. Everyone has their own views of what is right and wrong and what they have learned about the bombing of Japan. To the little kid looking at this plane asking of its importance, he or she might not understand all the events that took place and this plane’s role. You may need to explain to this person the all the details necessary but in the end, they will form their own opinion like others on whether it was right or wrong.
It is September 1st, 1939, and World War II has just begun. This was a very frightening moment for a lot of people with all of the vibration of guns raining, airplanes flying over the dark sky, and the cry of many families. The cause of World War II was the German invasion of Poland on September 1st, 1939. World War II was fought between two groups of countries. One of the sides was the Axis Powers, which included Germany, Italy, and Japan. Another side was the Allies, which included Britain, France, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, the Soviet Union, China, and the United States. Adolf Hitler was the leader of the invasion and believed that the invasion was a way to expand the borders of Germany. This was the beginning; however, the end occurred on the 6th of August 1945, when the Americans dropped a bomb on Hiroshima. Japan surrendered on J day, August 15th, 1945, and the war was over. The Navajo code’s role during World War II was especially significant because without it, a lot of marines would not have survived, nor would the Allies have been able to get their necessities such as medicine, food, gun supplies, etc.
Christopher Columbus landed on Costa Rica’s shore on September 15, 1502. He was there for 18 days refitting his ships. When Columbus arrived, four major indigenous tribes were already living there. The Caribs roamed the east coast, while, the Diquis, Chibchas, and Boars roamed the southwest. The natives brought him gold objects which is how it got its name Costa Rica, “Rich Coast”. Spaniards brought smallpox to Costa Rica, which is why many people fled. In 1564, the Spanish royals established the village of Cartago in the Meseta Central, as the first permanent settlement. Costa Rica got its independence from Spain in 1821. After Costa Rica got its independence, it became a part of Mexico for a while
September 2. 1945 -The war in Europe has just recently ended with the United States dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The war started in 1939 and quickly turned into a global conflict, with nations such as Great Britain and the Soviet Union banding together to form the allied powers. While Germany, Italy, and Japan formed the axis powers. The Axis quickly expanded, capturing territories in Europe from Poland all the way to the coast of France. The Japanese side of the axis began the conquest of Eastern Asia, gaining control of china, while at the same time expanding through the Pacific Ocean, gaining control of various parts and giving them one of the strongest navies at the time. The allies, meanwhile, struggled out of the gate early in the war, losing ground instead of making progress. On the eastern
