  • German West Front War Plan In 1914
    2,247 words
    The Schlieffen Plan is commonly - though misleading y - identified with the German western offensive at the start of the First World War in August 1914, which began as a campaign of rapid movement but ended in deadlock and trench warfare. The plan is generally seen as a desperate gamble almost certain to fail, and its recklessness is counted as part of Germany's war guilt - the plan held out the false promise of a quick victory, and so it underpinned the "short war illusion" that led Germany int...
  • Due To Mundt's Great Success Fiedler
    1,275 words
    This story, set during the cold war, is about a British spy, Leamas, who is controlling the spy actions against the east block (or "zone") from West-Berlin. After he lost one agent after the other to his opponent Mundt of the counter-espionage of the "party", he returns back to London where he and Control (a man of high rank in the British espionage network) come up with a plot against Mundt. Their Plan was to get Leamas to "betray" London and sell information to his opponent which indirectly ac...
  • Machine That Won The War
    477 words
    "The Machine That Won the War", by Isaac Asimov, is a story that teaches a valuable lesson about humanity and also has an ironic twist at the end. The setting is the future of Earth, and a great war had just been won against an enemy race. Two men, Swift and Henderson, are debating over who really won the war for Earth: the giant strategy computer known as Multivac, or the men in charge of making the maneuvers and programming the computer. John Henderson is an excitable man, while Lamar Swift, t...
  • Wwi The War
    475 words
    WWI was the most deadly conflict the world had ever known at the time. Soon after the United States entered the war, over 100,000 American lives were lost. Families were devastated and all were shocked. How could a war that was only supposed to last several months take so many lives The American public needed to be reassured that something so horrible would not happen again. Under his own reasoning, President Wilson did exactly that in declaring WWI the war to end all wars. One reason for Wilson...
  • Lysistrata And The Peloponnesian War Many Comedies
    1,420 words
    Lysistrata and the Peloponnesian War Many comedies of this time period explore issues that were of importance to those people. Lysistrata is no different. It explores issues relevant to the time period in which it was written. Aristophanes uses the Peloponnesian War to illustrate the differences between the men and women of the time period. As Lysistrata begins, the women are gathering for their meeting with Lysistrata. They gripe and complain about how late the others are for the meeting, while...
  • Opinions Of Military Analysts
    605 words
    I selected an article from this past Sunday's Oregonian. As the majority of the articles in the paper are, this commentary is in regards to the "Second Gulf War". Charles Krauthammer gives an excellent and well-educated opinion of the battle plans of the war. He describes the original war plan, or as he refers to it, "Plan A", and how General Franks has done a superb job of adapting the "Plan A" to the level of resistance experienced by our forces in southern Iraq. This is contrary to the opinio...
