  • Lot About An Anthrax
    666 words
    The Real Deal Out in the Field Being that this will be a very opinionated paper I concluded that I should begin this piece with an opinion. According to myself, there is no such thing as a just war. War is war no matter how much you try to justify it. You can't escape the fact that with war comes loss of life. This brings up the idea of "who are we to eliminate someone's life". No man should have such responsibility. Naturally those that cause war or instigate war are those that will not be figh...
  • War Unto France And Russia
    474 words
    Causes for World War I Many things led up to the start of World War I. There was much tension between the countries of Europe for more than fifty years. There were immediate causes, and long-term causes. Some immediate causes were the assassination of the heir of Austria-Hungry, Germany declaring war on Russia, Germany declaring war on France, and Great Britain declaring war on Germany. Some long-term causes or basic causes were imperialism, nationalism, and the arms race. The assassination of A...
  • Thirty Years War
    1,678 words
    MOTHER COURAGE The education system has always tried to figure out new ways of teaching certain matters of interest, like history, where there are many points to be discuss that can be left out by authors. Text books do not fill everything that should be filled, and it is impossible to do so because there are too many things to tell and not enough space to write. There is also the fact that every professor wants to give his or her own approach to the topic, and sometimes there is not one source ...
  • Freeman Dyson
    1,384 words
    Observing the Universe - Freeman Dyson Disturbing the Universe, the autobiographical work by renowned physicist Freeman Dyson, is a profound piece that offers insight into the human qualities of the author. Although "it" does chronicle his career as a scientist, the scope of the book is greater than that. Dyson reflects on his life work as pertains to public knowledge. In many ways Dyson's story resonates to some extent or another, in all of our lives. Dyson's personality is earmarked by his kee...

    Causes and Effects of the American Civil War Introduction - The American Civil War began on April 12, 1861 when General Pierre Beauregard opened fire with 50 cannons on Fort Sumter.

  • Ussr During The War
    1,116 words
    Sorry no bib on this; it was an in-class handout. This got me a 40/40 in AP History. There are three main schools of thought that trace the origins of the Cold War. The Orthodox view is that the intransigence of Leninist ideology, the sinister dynamics of a totalitarian society, and the madness of Stalin (Doc 1) cause the Cold War. The Revisionists claim that American policy offered the Russians no real choice [and] the United States used or deployed its preponderance of power (Doc 2) and these ...
  • Direct Cause Of The Civil War
    794 words
    The Civil War was a notable turning-point in British history. While moving historians have called this event moving, I would argue that The Civil War was in fact famous. This claim is confirmed by three powerful points: the Canadian Election of 1945 that cut off relations with the Soviet Union, the Mark Twain Tariff of 1991, and the German literature of the Imperialism period. Any examination of The Civil War would be incomplete without Fidel Castro: "The Civil War ought to be the only study of ...
  • War On France And Russia
    1,676 words
    It can be said that the First world war was caused by the alliance system, which has a very weak argument, the alliance system had very little to do with the first world war, it did to some extent cause the size of the war, but its argument in my opinion is very weak. Many other causes lean towards the side against the alliance system causing the first world war, which I believe is credible. The alliance system did cause the size of the war as it caused countries to be pulled in. First made in t...
  • 2 Alliance Systems During The World War
    1,619 words
    World War I is probably one of the biggest war that contained so much chain reaction. One feels threatened, they ally with their friends, and another nation feels threatened, so they ally with their friends. The feeling of threat leads into invasions then leads into their allies helping and invading and pretty soon, more allies come from both sides. Sooner or later, a vast amount of area, in this case a whole continent, is on a war. Silly as it may sound, this was World War I. We only hope that ...
  • France And Britain Into The War
    278 words
    WWI started in 1914, and ended in 1918. To this day there are many theories that are written, and unknown about the causes of this WWI. Some of them include, imperialism, and alliances. Imperialism added to the causes of the first world war because, Great Britain, Germany and France needed foreign markets after the increase in manufacturing caused by the Industrial Revolution.

  • War On The Allied Side
    566 words
    The first and second world wars were very much alike, and at the same time unique. Each war was fought in different places, at different times. However, both wars were fought between many of the same countries, but for different reasons. The beginning of WWI was surrounded by rising conflicts. Tensions caused by imperialism and strong nationalistic feelings caused countries to begin building up their militaries. Once the fear of war started, several alliances were made. Finally, the spark that s...
  • Kaiser Wilhelm II
    526 words
    The causes of the First World War cannot be as easily defined as the causes of the second. The war's origins cannot be traced to any one source, rather it was a climax to a series of incidents stretching well back into the 19th century. Incidents which interacted and overlapped to finally produce the destruction and slaughter of 1914-1918. Article 231 placed responsibility for the war on the German people and in particular Kaiser Wilhelm II. Kaiser Wilhelm II had the aim of securing for Germany ...
  • World War I Historians
    688 words
    The question of the origins of the first world war, who is to blame for it, and why it happened have been a constant subject of debate among historians since the war began. In Martel's the origins of the First World War (1996) these questions are examined, and different historians views are taken into account. The assassination of the Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife in June 1914 initiated conflict, that some believe lead to the beginning of war. Others believe that this may have b...
  • Gendered Nature Of The Civil War
    1,322 words
    Both the women of the Union and the Confederacy had important roles not only on the home front, but also on the battlefields. Though these women came from different backgrounds and were fighting for very dissimilar causes, they took on related jobs during the war. Women such as Clara Barton became field nurses. Others, like Pauline Cushman, became spies for their cause. Women also aided in actual battles by assisting the men who used guerilla warfare. Before and after the Civil War, gender in th...
  • Four Causes For World War
    311 words
    World War I wasn't started because of one problem but of several problems. The countries had problems with each other before the war exploded. I found that those problems could " ve been avoided for there wouldn't be a war. There were four causes for World War I. One of the causes was the indirect cause that was that imperialism made countries competitive for land and resources, which caused tension between them. Nationalism made people believe that their country the best and it had the countrie...
