Attila the Hun was the legendary leader of the Hunnic Empire, his reign lasting from 434 to 453. He was also the General of the Hun army, who were Mongolians that originated from central China. The Hun army was considered to be a vicious, barbaric tribe that most Romans found considerably frightening. Attila the Hun made a momentous impact on the ancient world, extending fear over Europe, almost destroying Rome and in turn, was dubbed as “The Scourge of God”. Not only did the Huns leave a lasting impression on Rome by demolishing numerous communities and constructions, but the destruction was firmly imprinted into the minds of the Romans and European history was significantly altered as well.
He had help by means of his followers and the princess. Nothing like William Wallace, Gilgamesh fought the monster by himself. Gilgamesh fought to save his friend and became famous for that. Their challenges were successful because they meet their goals. William Wallace was wrath at the British for killing his wife.
The Mongol Influence on Europe & the Islamic world The term “Mongols” brings to mind a barbaric, blood thirsty people who roamed the lands of old, destroying civilized life wherever it existed and liberally taking the lives of innocent men. This cliché is only partly true. The ancient Mongols were fearsome warriors; they were practically born and raised on horseback and were infamously skilled with the bow. At the time, they constructed the most formidable and effective war mechanism the contemporary world had ever seen, through intense discipline and intimidation. The carnage and destruction they caused throughout the land was legendary, and fear was instilled in the hearts of every civilization in proximity to their ever expanding empire.
They both successfully accomplished a series of tasks on the quests they were sent on. They also share the similar relationships with the gods. Both Jason and Herakles have had threatening childhoods. Pelius, the king of Jolcus, is told by an oracle, “beware of the one-sandaled man” (ACM 25). As a result of this, Pelius kills numerous amounts of his young male relatives in order to prevent what the oracle said from being reality.
In this mission he encountered Victor Frankenstein, an extremely weak and moribund man. Victor soon explains to Walton his treacherous journey to find and exterminate his “monstrous” creation. Most people who read “Frankenstein” have the same perception of the characters involved in the novel. This perception usually has to do with Victor Frankenstein being a victim of his so-called “monster”, in other words his creation. This “monster” with grotesque features and actions ends up killing every one close to his maker out of hatred and vengeance.
The most notable, however, is the first convoy of British supplies he destroys. Hacking a young soldiers body with and axe, this brutal scene, critically placed by the director, proves to the audience and myself, just how passionate he is towards retribution of his offspring. For myself, the identity of a
It had destroyed a whole generation leaving the soldiers who had fought in it broken shells of the young men they had once been. It drove a wedge between society and soldier as no civilian would ever be able to understand what atrocities the young men had experienced while fighting at the front. This left the soldiers feeling betrayed by their nations who had forced them to carry out their patriotic duty and sent them to their deaths. Both novels describe how the soldiers felt alienated from the lives that they had left behind. One British soldier wrote of how “despite the flag-waving that greeted us [Britain's returning troops] many felt nothing but hatred for the leaders and those back home who'd sent us to die.” Both novels, “Regeneration” by Pat Barker and “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Erich Marie Remarque discuss how the brutalities and horrors experienced at war have left the men who fought in it feeling alienated and ostracised from civilian life.
The right to bear arms has by far been the most unequivocal mistake our founding fathers have ever made. Guns not only perpetuate violence, but they set a precedent for impending violence all throughout the world. Violence that would not happen if it were not for the use of guns. Adolf Hitler, a man who has seen first hand the destruction of gun control has stated: "The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing” Allowing people throughout the country to own a weapon will cause utter and complete chaos.
Hitler, Stalin, and the Bomb Hitler and Stalin both share the dubious distinction of being two of the most destructive figures throughout all of history. The atrocities committed between the two of them against innocent people runs up into the millions. With Hitler, his rage was derived from his disdain to any Jewish person around believe that they truly were inferior to him. Stalin had a deep fear of people rising up against him and killed a mass amount of his own people just to suppress that fear that the people in his country might soon rebel against him. During the time period in which their reigns each occurred, nuclear science was starting to make some of its biggest discoveries in history.
When looked into deeper, this book portrays the war to be determined by power hungry leaders and citizens having no word in it. This book shows not only the governments role in the war, but what the government is doing to these innocent people. They put them out there to fight in desert-like conditions, rain, snow; then kill animalisticly. Not only does the government send these people out to die, they make it sound okay by telling them that they were doing their country a favor. Nationalism is a great thing; when you use it the correct way.
