92: Causes Of World War 2
... Europe. This paper will go over each of these causes individually and then draw some conclusions about world war II. The first cause of world war II was the intense anger over the Versailles Treaty. Germany was very angry over two things and the first of which was the many territorial losses they had to endure as a result of the treaty. They lost two cities on the French-German border and as per Wilson's thirteenth point Poland was re-formed with access to the Baltic Sea, which went right through Germany.

93: How the Decision to Declare War was Influenced

Although most Americans were against involvement in a European war these influences increased its position in the war. The loss of money ... Also propaganda was running high at this time. Before World War I broke out, European countries had begun to increase and bulk up their military forces. In the late 1800’s it was known that Germany had the best army in the world. These military build-ups were a product of Nationalism. Other European countries enforced military draft and increased their forces as well. Great Britain was not very concerned about military forces. However, since Great Britain is an “island country” it was known to have the world’s strongest navy. In 1898, Germany began to build its naval force. This competition of power made Germany an enemy of Great Britain. The British navy formed blockades that kept supplies from reaching German ports. By 1916, Germany was in ...
94: The Devastation of World War One
... World War one is one of the most devastating wars in history. The war was caused by nationalistic tension between countries.

Self-determination was one of Wilson's ideas that a nation should rule themselves rather then be ruled by others. In his ... overlooked or ignored in other situations. This lack of precision was a reason why self-determination was not the only main aim in Wilson's fourteen points. When Czechoslovakia was redrawn, land was taken from Germany.

Also three million Germans became part of Czechoslovakia, a country that was originally ...

A week after Hitlers death, Germany offered unconditional surrender to Allied forces. The nightmare of World War 2 in Europe came to an end. Hitler was the only man responsible for the horrors of World War 2. But it was his dream of world domination that possessed Germany.

96: Chamberlain and Fabri: Strong Advocates
... and Fabri: Strong Advocates A brief but seriously intense period of imperial and colonial expansion took place in many Western nations between 1870 to 1905.1 With the addition of newly formed nations such as Germany, the desire for expansion transformed into a competition, as the opportunity to build or enlarge empires, (especially for those that were newly formed), decreased at a rapid rate. Unclaimed areas were claimed with a sense ... class. In addition to his service as mayor, he became a member of the British Parliament in 1876.2 Friedrich Fabri, author of an extremely popular short story entitled Bedarf Deutschland der Kolonien?, (Translation: Does Germany Need Colonies?), was a long time inspector of the Barmen Rhine Mission in German Southwest Africa.3 It is clear to the reader that both the pamphlet and the speech were designed to influence or ... and richness, and that not taking advantage of the opportunity to colonize Uganda would have been an outlandish mistake.

97: Battle Of The Bulge
... Patton's 3rd Army to the south. The Ardennes was held by General Middleton who had the 8th US Army Corps, 106th and 26th Infantry Divisions and 4th and 9th Armoured Divisions. “In late 1944 Germany was clearly losing the war. The Russian Red Army was steadily closing in on the Eastern front while German cities were being devastated by intense American bombing. The Italian peninsula had been captured and liberated ... The allied forces completely destroyed the German armies. From this time forward the Germans were never able to raise a large army again to attack the allies. As 1945 approached it seemed, to most, that Germany's surrender was only a matter of time. The Allies, having been on the offensive for so long, had an all time high determination and morale. The idea that Germany could muster the supplies, troops, or will to launch an offensive seemed crazy. In fact, many were already asking the questions of when and where the assault on the Rhine should be launched. “Hitler, ...
98: Imperialism
... both Asia and Africa. They tended to claim that their imperialist activities were BENEFICIAL to their subject peoples. How could this be so if the rivalries between imperialist powers generated tension, especially between Britain and Germany, which would eventually contribute to the first world war? My opinion is that Imperialism is a natural phenomenon occuring in social species. I mean, look at ants... they'll take over other nests and steal ... problems in their own lower class of citizens. The right of one nation to take over another for whatever political, economic, social or religious reasons is never justifiable. When nations like Britain, the U.S, Germany or Japan engaged in imperialism their primary concerns were not the welfare of the lesser nation. They intended to "rape" the African countries, the Far East of whatever cheap raw materials could be extracted and ... in Africa after 1869. The British economy has always depended heavily on trade, and having colonies was the way to expand trade. Before the 1870's, the British had very little competition in gathering colonies--Germany and Italy were not unified, the French were busy fighting with the Prussians, and the revolutions of 1848 created internal instability in other European countries.

... the rear. His courage during one of these missions earned him the Iron Cross, a highly prized medal for bravery that was rarely awarded to a mere corporal .

When Hitler and his fellow dispatch runners were waiting in line for their food rations, British troops began lobbing high explosive shells nearby.

100: Appeasement And Its Role In Th
The term appeasement is used to describe the response of Western European governments to the expansionist activities of Germany and Italy under Hitler and Mussolini in the 1930s. Their attitude to give them what they wanted to prevent a war in Central Europe. The underlying facts was the belief of British and French politicians ... that their publics would never risk a repetition of the horrors of World War I. The British government believed in appeasement till the day there was no other solution than to go to war on Germany.
