Let’s start with colonists; one of the biggest advantages they had over Britain was they had a major cause for wanting to fight. They were fighting for their independence, pride, liberty and the rights they deserved. They had a desire to win which was probably stronger than England’s desire because they were fighting for their own cause. Another major advantage America had was how far away from home the British were. They were over 3,000 miles from home, leading to poor communication with supply lines and their leaders.
10/10/10 The United States of America has seen several threats since its proclamation in 1776. Wars have plagued and haunted American history; with the outbreak of World War I, wars were no longer a matter of foreign or internal threat – wars became our means of solving the world’s problems. From the invention of white blasting powder to the apocalyptic nuclear weapon, the Big Stick policy has never faded. However, of the well-known threats to America, be they microscopic, atomic, corruption, or overseas, the most insidious are the moods of the American people. The American peoples’ complacency towards the world and the monopoly on force their power controls over them is appalling to anyone versed in history enough to remember the rise of National Socialism or Bolshevism.
General George B. McClellan: A Critical Analysis There is perhaps no other military leader connected with the American Civil War that created so much interest and caused so much controversy as George B. McClellan. His ability to organize and build a military was among the best in history. However, his ability to lead and fight has always been seriously questioned. Because his legacy was so widespread, we will look at and compare the timeframe from his appointment to General of the Army of the Potomac/General in Chief to his relief from command by President Lincoln. The authors we will compare are; James McPherson, Stuart Sifakis, and Ethan S. Rafuse.
The first major engagement in Ia Drang may have proved ultimately to be an American victory, but it presented the fact that fighting the VC would not be won through area wars, but purely a through test of which side could drain enemy troop numbers fastest in an attritional war. The VC was able to conscript up to 200,000 men a year, outnumbering the US. These were not just typical soldiers, they were fighting a war for freedom which had been going on for centuries, and this contributed to their overall passion and perseverance in the face of a much more advanced enemy. In comparison the standard American troop was conscripted via a date of birth drafting system, and kept in Vietnam for a year. Many troops were not committed to their duty in Vietnam and did not always see why they were actually putting their lives on the line.
Now that the requirement for citizenship is answered, the harder questions to answer remain. First, what does it mean to be an American citizen and why should anyone care? Well, the United States is among the more powerful nations that ever existed upon the Earth. However, when our forefathers first arrived off of the first boat into the new world, it wasn’t developed as we have it now. It took decades of hard work and dedication to a common cause to form the United States to the form it is today and it is our job now to continue to work hard and advance this nation into a
Because of those Napoleon can be seen as one of the greatest Generals that ever lived. If you look at the historical meaning, I think it it more debatable. Napoleon is without doubt one of the greatest leaders in military history, his skill as a general both tactically and strategically is without question, his rise to power astounding. Few men in history have had such an impact on world history and he easily ranks along side such leaders as Alexander the Great and Hannibal. Like those leaders he was an authoritarian leader and a dictator whose skill was matched by his ambition, one of those who did not know when the possible ended and the impossible began.
Militarism played an immense part in the start of the Great War and without it, there was a chance that the war would have never have lasted as long as it did. Militarism is when an entire country is in love with the idea of war. Soldiers were considered to be very god-like, and citizens only focused on the favourable aspects of war: serving one’s country and being honoured .In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, both France’s and Germany’s armies had nearly doubled in size due to militarism. Germany was in competition with France to obtain Europe’s largest army. The country also felt threatened as its neighbouring country, Russia was part of the Triple Entente and was itself building up a vast army.
The war was caused by grudges countries had held against each other from previous wars. Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy were the Triple Alliance. Britain, France and Russia were the Triple Entente (friendly agreement). These agreements meant that if ever war broke out you would help the country you are in agreements with. Germany was 30-40 years old and wanted to have a bigger empire and navy than Britain, which had the biggest empire and biggest navy out of all of the countries.
He feels that details cause error and error in turn causes unnecessary stress. The point is well taken, however one major problem with this concept is the fact that the world revolves around time. Without time and urgency in life nothing would ever get done. People need deadlines and in all honesty people need pressure. Natural competition is what leads to breakthroughs in medicine and the new, better improved buildings that restore our beloved hometown communities.
Even though Education can be very tedious and at moments seem extremely difficult we just need to get through it, after all education is not something meant to be easy because then it is not education and we are not learning anything, the goal is to learn, comprehend as much information and apply that to the world we live in. I believe that Education is what makes the world go round; it is the heart and soul of everything we do. Education holds so much power and once you have it you are unstoppable. It may seem like too much I know for a fact I found myself not wanting to have anything to do with it at all but I know how important it is and the doors it can open for so many of us. By the time we put in all our work and effort into our education before we know it so many of us can be
