  • German Forces
    347 words
    The reason for Hitler's defeat is quite simple - Russia. Russia has proved to be impossible for any army to conquer; They are willing to make tremendous self-sacrifices in order to win, with leaders willing to cut off their own arms in order to save the body.

    The Alliance System and the Long Fuse In a recent New York Times Op-Ed column (10/12/00), William Safire drew an analogy between Ariel Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount and the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand.

    3,300 words
    The Upraised: Germans from Russia in America John Schemer Although the title of this paper stems from Andrew Rolle's 1968 volume The Immigrant Upraised, this essay will illustrate that his assessment is not restricted to the Italian immigrants of his study. The group I have chosen to focus on herein is perhaps but one example of such a group typifying Rolle's conclusion that "success was being achieved along American lines" while attempting to maintain "Old Cultures In a New Land". If however, w...
