Nuclear Bomb in WWII Shapes the World Abstract The history of the world can be marked with conflicts amongst civilization since the dawn of time. When closely studied, civilizations believe their culture’s values are better than any of those opposing them. From these ‘nationalistic beliefs’, physical conflict arises and poses the need to develop weapons that can assist with gaining successful results. In 1939, prior to U.S. involvement in WWII, the Manhattan Project began in order to build the first nuclear bomb. The U.S. was determined to be a World superpower.
It is said that women’s contribution during World War 1 was vital and they would not have got the vote before 1918 without this factor. Whilst the men were away, women took over their jobs, such as ship building, munition workers and engineering. By 1918, 919,000 women
Treaty of Versailles was the peace treaty which officially ended World War I. it was very burdensome on the German economy. Germany was just a devastated by the war as anyone else, but they were very hard pressed to rebuild with the massive reparation payments they were required to make. But the reason why they did soo debt on them is because of Germany made a great destruction on countries, especially on French. I think the reasons for WW2 were: Treaty of Versailles, Hitler’s rise to power and Militarism. Treaty
Totalitarianism in 20th Century Europe Dan Nicoletta 4947032 Brock University HIST 2P52 Professor Ferris Inna Ivanova March 4, 2013 Totalitarianism is one of the most feared political and socially detrimental regimes that the world has seen in the past century. Webster’s dictionary defines totalitarianism as “the political concept that the citizen should be totally subject to an absolute state authority”. Three men in 20th century Europe, took three different political visions, incorporated these specific ideologies into their extensive political platform, and took full control over their specific state. However, though Stalin, Hitler and Mussolini all had different ideological backgrounds and political platforms, these 3 men similarly wanted to achieve an end result of, total power over the state. Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler, all from different political beliefs felt as though they each needed to complete control over the state, and they would have stopped at nothing in order to achieve their goals and fulfill their own idea of a utopic state.
How did hitler control germany ? It cannot be doubted that Nazi Germany was the most destructive political regime of the 20th century, not only because it unleashed World War II or instigated the holocaust but because of its impact on German society. In fact, Hitler’s control of German population depended on many factors : * One party state * The Hitler youth * Fear * Propaganda * The Gestapo The enabling act (23 March 1933) made Hitler the all-powerful “Fuhrer” of Germany. The law against the formation of parties (14 July 1933) declared the Nazis party in Germany. It became an offence to belong to another Party than the Nazis party.
The Nazi state idolized Hitler, centralising all powers in his hands. Propaganda was used to propagate the regime, however; much of it was based on Hitler himself, being quite effective in creating what historians called the ‘Hitler Myth’. With Hitler being a controversial character, most historians have come to believe that the Fuhrer of Nazi Germany was not a strong dictator at all but a weak one. Although this is not the case for all historians, with some believing Hitler was at the centre of the regime. Without Hitler’s massive personal popularity, the high level of ‘plebiscitary acclamation which the regime could repeatedly call upon’ (Kershaw), would have been unattainable.
In August 1940, only seven thousand women joined but with crisis caused by Hitler and his U-boats, now there was a need for more women to join the land army. In 1943 there was a shortage of workers in the factories, so the government gave the women their choice to work in the factories or on land. The women mainly had two big roles work in the factory or on the land. Both were successful during WWII, earning the women more respect for their work. Because of WWII women got better jobs and were treated more
Holocaust happened because Hitler and the Nazis were racist. They believed the German people were a 'master race', who were superior to others. They even created a league table of 'races' with the Aryans at the top and with Jews, Gypsies and black people at the bottom. These 'inferior' people were seen as a threat to the purity and strength of the German nation. When the Nazis came to power they persecuted these people, took away their human rights and eventually decided that they should be exterminated.
Role of Women in America in the 1940s The 1940s -- and especially the first half of the decade -- brought a massive change to the role of women in American society. Not only did women enter the production process, but the whole perception on the capabilities of the so-called "weak gender" altered. Despite the fact that the change was short-lived, according to the National Park Service, the road taken by women in the 1940s continued into the future. Women in the Workforce Working women were not an alien spectacle in the American society. According to numbers of the National Park Service, by late 1941, 14 million women constituted one quarter of the nation's workforce.
American after Nuclear War Many people would agree that America is one of the strongest Nations in the world with our Democracy and vats armies even the ability to feed our people gives an advantage over some nations but could America or even its people survive atomic fire. With this paper I will walk you through what could happen to America if nuclear war occurred from the initial strike to aftermath and finally the rebound. The horrors of a nuclear war are unimaginable. We may have some idea of them by recalling the havoc caused by the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki towards the end of the Second World War. Not only were the two cities wiped out of existence but the atmosphere for miles around was polluted and
