...HIST 2005-2: Week (6) – World War II October 17, 2010 World War II had several prominent leaders throughout the world from President F. Roosevelt in the United States, Winston Churchill in Britain, Joseph Stalin in Russia and Adolf Hitler in Germany. These four men are the most well known in history and all made significant contributions to today’s world. Today, I will focus on the strong influences of President Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler. Both men were great leaders and great speakers in their own respect but I will identify Roosevelt’s effective leadership and Hitler’s ineffective leadership. President Franklin Roosevelt was elected to four terms of presidency for the Unites States. During his presidency, he faced tough decisions regarding the Great Depression and international conflicts that led to World War II. Some of Roosevelt’s policies included an all inclusive national defense, strengthen defense and security of country, demand and support complete action in recognition of obvious dangers and to produce armaments through American industry quicker (The Four Freedoms, n.d.). In 1932, Roosevelt proposed the “New Deal” which would give the people “a program to bring recovery to business and agriculture and relief to the unemployed and those in danger of losing their farms and homes (Presidents, n.d.). After three years, the economy was still struggling and Roosevelt started more reform programs. Social security program was introduced to provide...

These projections are what we interact with everyday within our own society. These projections are based on the natural interpretation of their respective civilization or culture and the basic walks of life that consume it. For example the existence of laws, arts, religion, and government are the meat and potatoes of civilization without these essential elements humans would be reduced animals that eat to live and breed without leaving a mark or legacy of his own.

World Civilization ( Columbian Exchange)

...Nathan Story 13 September, 2012 History 262 Section 14 Columbian Exchange Amerindian peoples were dying from new disease such as the smallpox, yellow fever and malaria as the uninvited Europeans invaded their land. The isolation of the Indians from the rest of the world made their immunity to new diseases very weak. The invasion known as the beginning of the Columbian Exchange brought an epidemic upon Native Americans along with new species of plants, animals and technologies. Christopher Columbus arrived in the main land of America in 1492 by mistake. He planned to find a route to India, but has mistakenly arrived to the shore of America, and as a result, he called the people of the new land “Indians” as we still know them today. This was just one many voyages that tied the New world of America to the rest of the world. As the epidemic swept the new world, so did vast exchanges of plants that altered the diets Amerindians and the rest of the world, especially Europe. The Indians were introduced to olives, grapes, rice, sugar, onions and many other crops. Pigs, cattle sheep and rabbits were introduced; however, the horse had the greatest positive impact on the Native peoples...

Western Civilization Ii Final Exam

...Western Civ. II Final Exam 1. What impact did the American Revolution have on Europe? The American Revolution impacted Europe in certain ways. The most obvious would be Great Britain declaring war on the Americans due to their attempt at seceding and being their own nation. However, there were other countries involved in the American Revolutionary War as well, especially France. France wanted to aid the Americans for the reason of getting back what was taken from them by the British in 1763. At first, they sent the Americans weaponry, and the first significant victory by the Americans (The Battle of Saratoga) was won primarily using French weapons. Seeing that the Americans were able to win a major battle, the French became formal allies with them and declared war on Great Britain. Eventually, Spain and Holland also sided against the British, which turned the tide of the war to America’s favor (Lewis 381). With the surrender of Lord Cornwallis in 1781, and the Treaty of Paris signed two years later (which recognized the United States as a sovereign nation) , France was given back Quebec and America became their new trade partner and ally. However, despite the war’s successful outcome, France was under overwhelming debt, which forced the monarchy to place a permanent tax throughout the land for all subjects in 1786. This was the beginning of the end of the “Old Regime”, eventually leading to the French Revolution, which was (ironically) inspired by the American...

...Laura Rose World Civilization 101 March 6, 2014 “Egypt, birthplace of the oldest known civilization in Africa,” is a statement in the gallery of the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Egypt has influenced many civilizations. Hebrew: Moses and Monotheism, Greco-Roman civilization, Yoruba gods, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Islamic social structures all have social institutions that dialectically emerge from the Egyptian culture. There are many aspects to the Egyptian culture. Family is very important to Egyptians; family was seen to be superior then just an individual. Blood relations are significant in all social relations, even though the family consisted of both nuclear and extended family. How they greeted each other were bases on their religion. It is traditionally a handshake, which should be first done by a woman; if not the men most bow their heads in respect.¹ Egyptians had a lot of pride in their family and it was expected for the children to take care of the parents when they get elderly. Women were allowed to get married after their first menstrual cycle while men were allowed to around the age of 16 to 20; that’s when they were expected to be able to know how to care for a family.² In Egypt people were allowed to engage in premarital sex, as long as they stayed faithful after marriage. For example women were seen as equal to men legally. They were able to own property and slaves, to administer and sell land, to make their own wills, to sign their own marriage contracts, and...

Causes of World War Ii

...Justin Wilder HIS 323 Essay 1 Question 2 After The Great War it was clear Europe was in turmoil both economically and politically. In an effort to remedy the post war troubles the Allies drafted the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty itself was flawed due to the short time period it was drafted in and the opposing agendas of three main powers drafting it. The French premier, Georges Clemenceau saw this opportunity to protect France from any further conflict with Germany. David Lloyd George, the British Prime Minister, saw the need for a just and fair punishment for Germany but his main goal was to reestablish trade throughout Europe to ensure economic prosperity. The third main power was America. Woodrow Wilson’s goals were peace and self determination. His plan, The League Of Nations, was designed to unify Europe and prevent any future wars. As for his idea of self-determination Wilson thought that nations of multiple ethnic and religious groups should be able to choose their own political status without interference. French, British, and American leaders failed to create a strong and fair treaty after World War I. They failed to recognize each other’s interests and the interests of the rest of Europe. Despite troubling times in Europe, if they would have negotiated a stronger treaty, recognizing the interests of all European nations, strong and lasting democratic governments could have been established in Europe. German leaders signed the armistice on November 11...

World Civilization Book Report

...Eric Grimes Hsiang-Wang Liu World Civilizations III November 11, 2012 The Wealth and Poverty of Nations Why Some Are So Rich and Some Are So Poor The book, The Wealth and Poverty of Nations: Why some are so rich and some are so poor, discusses that the characteristics of a society’s cultural history is the key to explaining success, in today’s global world. It also discusses why they achieve economic success while others remain mired in poverty. This book was written by David Landes, a professor of history and economics at Harvard University. The book was first published in 1998. It is based off of Adam Smith’s, The Wealth of Nations, written in 1776. The moral of this book describes how the writer explores the differences between the West and the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The book explains how our people got to a certain place in the world and the difficulties getting there. David Landes believes that this topic is overdue for discussion and feels he should step up to the subject. Landes starts with discussing the geography of the nations. He mentions in chapter one that many rich countries lie in the temperate zones, particularly in the northern hemisphere and the poor countries are in the tropics and semi- tropics. Philosophers believe that “this reveals the deepseated optimistic bias with which we approach problems of development and the reluctance to admit the vast differences in initial conditions with which today’s poor countries are...

World War Ii

...The Second World War “We are about to embark on the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you…” – Dwight D. Eisenhower. These words of the great Five-Star General Eisenhower, that were spoken before D-Day, only scrape the surface of how gigantic and complex the Second World War was, and how it shaped the world for the years to come. The conflicts that occurred in this bloody war would shock the world and be remembered even seventy plus years into the future. This war was “Power-packed” with huge names from the world’s super powers; huge names that have been remembered for the years to follow, such as Roosevelt, Stalin, Mussolini, Tojo, Churchill, Eisenhower, Hitler, etc. All of the battles that ensued, had either positively or negatively affected the world as we know today and held huge roles in the “Great War” that many people’s grandfathers, not just Americans, fought in for what each of their countries’ beliefs. World War II, or WW2 for short, spanned from 1SEP1939 to 2SEP1945, to set the backdrop for this war, Germany was in substantial debt from the treaties signed that forced the German people to pay the Allied Powers large sums of money to end World War I, this allowed for the Nazi party to acquire a majority in Germany’s government, and eventually become the nation’s official political party. Their main point to the people was to blame communism and communists, and used the Jewish people as the face for...

World War Ii

...Jasmine Buisson English 101 0822 Professor Neddy McMills The Holocaust was one of the most tragic and brutal time during the World War II. Between 1941 and 1945, Jews were targeted and precisely murdered in the largest genocide of the 20th century. What started this horrific massacre was the notorious Adolf Hitler, the leader of Nazi Germany. After the start of World War II, Hitler the chancellor of Germany created a policy known as the “Final Solution.” From the Nuremberg Laws in 1935 to Kristallnacht in 1938, Hitler slowly removed Jews from German society. However, the Nazis created an elaborate and intensive system to work Jews to forced labor under brutal conditions. From the concentration camps created by the Nazi, forced labor was futile and destructive. The concentration camp forced the Jews to perish without proper equipment, clothing, nourishment, or rest. Because Adolf Hitler devised the Final Solution to eradicate Europeans Jews, more than one million Jews, labored and perish in Auschwitz, a Nazi concentration camp. Like what Fidel Castro said “There is nothing that compares to the Holocaust.” After the start of World War II, the anti-Jewish law enforcers came up with a plan to dispose of European Jewry. To mask the true meaning behind their destruction, the Nazi Germany used certain language to disguise it. The meaning of the “Final Solution” means to annihilate the Jewish...

...World War II Research Paper - Italy HST 114 November 2, 2015 World War II Research Paper - Italy World War II was a continuation of discord in the world. Everyone wanted control and power and all were willing to fight to gain it. There were alliances formed that each nation felt, at the time, would give them more advantages and chances to be victorious. This essay will focus on Italy. It will trace totaliarism, evaluate the cause of World War II and Italy’s involvement. This essay will continue on to explain the Holocaust and Italy’s undertones, discuss new technology that was introduced, and the major leaders of Italy during those times. Totalarism Let’s begin with tracing totaliarism in Italy. Between the years of 1918 and 1939, Italy joined alliances with Germany and began being regarded as a fascist structure. Italy’s goal was a structure that we later defined as totalairism. By definition, totaliarism is when one man or group has total, absolute control of a nation (Grierder, 2007). In Italy, Prime Minister Bentio Mussolini and the fascist party had that type of absolute control of the government in Italy. One might as how is that possible with a nation as large of Italy. Well after World War I, the nation was depleted. They fought hard and well during World War I but didn’t receive the prizes or recognition they thought they would have received.

...Historical Accuracies and Inaccuracies of Saving Private Ryan By Foday Bangura World Civilization Mrs. Beavers 2 April 2015 World War II is probably considered one of the most violent and horrific wars in modern history. There have been many reenactments of this historical moment in Hollywood. One movie that portrayed events significantly during World War II is Saving Private Ryan by Steven Spielberg. Even though Saving Private Ryan is critically acclaimed for its realistic battle scenes and won multiple academy awards for its cinematic display and accuracy of events, there are still many inaccuracies throughout the movie as well. This film can be considered one of the greatest war movies of all time, but even some of the greatest reenactments can be inaccurate at times relating to history. The movie is about a group of troops on a mission to find another soldier in the name of Ryan so they can bring him back home to his mother. The reason they had to bring him back is because he had three older brothers already in war, but unfortunately were killed during battle. This resulted in the effort to try to find Ryan to bring him back home to his mother because he was the youngest, and to avoid all brothers being killed. During this journey to retrieve Ryan many troops were killed along the way, but at the end the troops finally found Ryan and brought him back home. During the journey, the movie reenacts historical moments such D-day. For example, the...

Thousands of Germans who did not consider themselves Jews were now defined as “non-Aryans” (Florida, 2005). Hitler viewed the 1936 Olympic as a prime opportunity to encourage Nazism to the world. Hitler had made Olympic amenities and monumental stadiums to promote Nazism. Hitler was portrayed as a god in a film he had Leni Riefenstahl create. The film was created for the principle of Nazi beliefs’, some believe the film to be one of the greatest propaganda films of the century. International turmoil preceded the games politically. The United States threatened to boycott the games because it was questioned if the Nazi command could follow the rules of the Olympic Charter, stating that participation is unrestricted by creed, class, or race. When the Nazis promised to allow German Jews to participate, talk of boycotting came to a halt. March 1938, Hitler took over Austria with no violence on his quest in bringing all German speaking people together. In September 1938, Hitler started looking at the northwestern area of Czechoslovakia, called Sudetenland, there were millions of German speaking people.
