Compare and contrast the U.S. reactions to World War I in 1914 with its reactiob to World war II on 1939 World War I started in the year 1914. The underlying causes of the war was the nationalism that was found throughout Europe in the 19th and 20th century. There was political and economic rivalry among the nations. But the main "shot" that started the war was on June 28, 1914. This was when Archduke Francis Ferdinand was shot and killed by a member of a secret society, the Black Hand.

During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, there were many technological advances that changed the way war was looked upon. War was no longer two opposing groups meeting in a field for a prearranged fight. It had evolved into a strategic game where the stronger your toys, the better your team fought. The industrial revolution had changed the way war was engaged, fought, and ended. This transformation would bring about the second of the worldwide battles, the Second World War. The Technolog

4. "Germany was responsible for the outbreak of World War One" How appropriate & how sufficient is this assertion? Many historians have disputed over the origins of World War I, who started it, who is to blame for the outbreak of the war? And there are no accurate answers to the questions. To support the statement "Germany was responsible for the outbreak of World War I" to a full extent is impossible. First of all the war was never a World War until much later (arguably not until us inter

In a miserably failed attempt to stop the already ongoing violence during world war one, and prevent further conflict in the region, the Treaty of Versailles was proposed by ex-president Woodrow Wilson. Such treaty – not using the term according to its stipulated meaning – set cruel rules and pointers that would only produce more violence and terror. The Treaty of Versailles was a document containing fourteen points. In a brief description, the first point stipulated that secret di

In history classes today (elementary, high school, and some in the college or university level as well) our teachers rarely give us an in-depth look at events, instead they just give us a quick scan of what happened, when, and why the events mentioned are important. I have yet to have had a history teacher get deep into the subject matter of a certain event, or chain of events as I would like. My favorite topic of history, or the area that I find the most interesting would be the events le

Far more devastating than car wrecks, violent crimes or natural disasters, is the tragedy that we call war. More men have lost their lives, broken their dreams and shattered their hope than is possible to fathom. But far more than death stalks the battlefields. A host of terrors, including homesickness, lonlieness, and the loss of innocence play major roles in soldier's lives. The most prevalent of these horrors is the specter of death. It is inescapable to all men,

The United States entered WWI in 1917 after being neutral for 3 years. Germany had pushed the U.S. closer and closer to war by doing several things. Finally the U.S. was pushed to far and declared war on Germany and it s allies. Germany used unrestricted submarine warfare (USW) in the oceans against non-army ships. This violated the United States rights for neutrality and angered Americans, while pushing to battle. The present German submarine warfare against commerce is warfare against

The Aims of Germany and Japan The 1930s were a tumultuous time. After World War I, the Allied powers seemed determined to preserve peace, but Germany and Japan held a shared goal of world domination. In two memorandums about the plans of Germany and Japan, U.S. officials make the position that the United States should take plain: mobilize and be ready for war, but do not provoke it. In other words, “Speak softly but carry a big stick.” Although Germany and Japan had a few s
