And after Napoleon, the monarchy was actually restored, although it was a constitutional monarchy and not the absolutist monarchy that France had known before the revolution. France only got worse because of the revolution. Also the in- and export transactions and political relations with other European countries stagnated because no other European court wanted anything to do with the violent French who had decapitated their monarchs and tens of thousands of other innocent victims. It took France years and years until the country was recovered from the revolution. The fact that they still celebrate the 14th of July shows the rest of the world that they haven't learned of their mistakes.
To control the situation, the people of France quickly organized their own authoritative forces. Timothy Tackett argues in When the King Took Flight that Louis XVI’s escape is significant because it destroyed faith in the monarch and amplified the violence of the Revolution but at the same time instilled a new sense of unity among the French. King Louis XVI’s failed escape upset many people because they had invested so much trust and affection for him. Despite his indecisiveness, chubbiness, and lack of royal grace, they respected him and therefore tolerated his flaws. On June 23 for instance, Louis stood by the nobility and denounced the existence of the National Assembly, but many patriots forgave him and instead blamed his advisors.
France had a burning desire for revenge on the British after their loss at the French Indian war back in 1754. and America wanted France to help them in the war. But France didn't want to step in because they were afraid that their participation would result in another expensive war with the British. So France said “ we will help only if you show us that you have a real chance of winning this war.” the victory at Saratoga convinced France to step in and donate a ton of supplies and men. This helped to even the playing field against the
Will Cornette Research paper 9/24/11 Many people view D-Day as a great victory for the United States and its Allies but are highly unaware of the hardship and the failures that accompanied the success. In all reality, the Allies should have been defeated on the shores of Normandy. First, the weather made it difficult for the Allies to land on the beaches. The Allies suffered equipment failure. They also had to invade a daunting stretch of beach at Omaha.
This was also known as, Pontiac’s Rebellion. “When I go to see the English commander and say to him that some of our comrades are dead, instead of bewailing their death as our French brothers do, he laughs at me and at you. If I ask for anything for our sick, he refuses with the reply that he has no use for us. From all this you can well see that they are seeking our ruin. Therefore, my brothers, we must all saver their destruction and wait no longer.” ( The American Spirit, p.88 )The Indians realize that they can never trust the colonists again.
Motivated by his disgust of “class hierarchy” and “meaningless privileges,” (as described by Paul Fussell in the introduction) (Fussell, p. v), Graves wanted to escape, at least as long as the war would last. “…I decided to enlist…I hoped that it might last long enough to delay my going to Oxford in October, which I dreaded.” (Graves, p. 67). His decision to enlist in the British army as an officer in the Royal Welch Fusiliers was as much fueled by patriotism and a support of the British position as it was by this desire to
I wish the war would just end. Most of us do not even know why we are still fighting. We hear all kinds of stories as to why we have not gone home yet, but who knows what the real reason is. We all know that France and England are the enemy here, but at the same time, all of the people we are fighting against are just like us. We all just want the war and fighting to be over.
Clearly this was quite a vigorous act, Cicero undertook this in full knowledge it could perhaps lead to his death as Caesar’s army, though lacking numbers, was full of war veterans. However one could call this acting against the republic, as Cicero spent more time with Pompey and his legions it was clear that the upkeep of the republic was not the motive of war but defeating Caesar was. He quarrelled with several of the more prominent Pompeian commanders over their eagerness to shed Roman blood. In Cicero’s opinion, the Pompeians had lost all sense of perspective in their lust to destroy
Hart felt jealous toward Jamie otherwise in his deep of mind he also felt glad that Jamie was going to leave Broome for war and Mitsy might think that Jamie was now on the opposite with her. It can show the relationship between both Jamie and Hart. They not were thinking at the same point. We do not exactly know what Jamie was thinking by join up the war but we can see that Hart did not actually want to join up the war, he want because his rival
The U.S.A. views this war as a war against communistic aggression, but in reality they viewed it as a civil war struggle. News coverage was biased against the American aggression, which did more to defeat their army than the enemy soldiers. Both sides were glad to have this conflict over and done with, but for different reasons. Vietnam was not a glorious conquest, that the American public was use to obtaining and demanded. It was an early wake-up call for Americans to resolve issues on their home front prior to taking on another country's problems,
