Mexican-American War is a big event in the 19th century, in which the concept of Manifest Destiny was related with war. The Mexican-American War was not only for increased territory, but also a symbol of America's racial misunderstanding. Some White people have the superiority with themselves.  They took Mexican people’s land as Manifest Destiny, above all moral and law. Many Americans believe that God give them the power and duty to expand territory, strengthen the United States.
Until the Americans joined the War, Germany had managed to move forces into Belgium and Western France, increasing the pressure on Britain because for the first time it became apparent that the War was even closer to home than had at first been perceived. The nature of the war took a turn in 1917 when the USA joined to the aid of Britain, France and Russia, taking part in their first battle on the 28th May 1918, which proved as a success and a great boost to allied morale. Now, that the USA, the world’s strongest economic power had joined the war, Germany was forced to fight the war on two fronts; both on the East and on the West. It was because of this alliance, and fact that the Allies faced Germany and its allies on both sides that, once America had joined, the war was able to be won decisively. Linking to this fact, the alliance and geographical positions of both America and Russia were not the only two determining factors, as both nations were able to supply vast numbers of troops to the war effort, and the USA in particular was able to supply copious amounts of money to the allies, bringing new technologies to warfare.

Booker Jones increased production by 20,000 barrels in 1961. If the cost of each barrel is $31.50, then these 20,000 barrels would cost $630,000. This will be added to the inventory account and hence will generate pretax profit of ($630,000 – 407,000) = $223,000. b. If the change were made retroactively as of July 1, 1959 (by adding the cost of barrels to all whiskey in inventory), what would be the effect on i.
If the success of an Independence movement is defined by achievement of the original goals, then the Mexican Independence Movement was more successful than the Brazilian Independence Movement because Mexico achieved its political, and social goals while Brazil did not achieve its goals to the extent Mexico did, and while Brazil did become economically stable afterwards, Mexico remained economically unstable. There were many political goals for both the Mexican and Brazilian Independence movements. Napoleon’s invasion of the mother countries, Spain and Portugal caused much disruption in the countries so forcing him out was not only a goal but a necessity. Other goals included bringing Ferdinand VII back into power and the final goal was to become independent. Along with the goal of removing Napoleon from Portugal, Brazil’s only set goal politically was to become independent.

It also began to advise companies on they could be more efficient and join bitter rivals to improve productivity. This meant that the government now began to take authority of the economy and thus give more power to the federal government.

This in addition to the point that Germany had just been through an industrialisation stage and was trying establish itself as a world power lead to the First World War as this ambition lead to other countries becoming threatened. Germany was increasing in stature after defeating France in a war in 1870-1; this paired with the fact that Chancellor Otto Van Bismarck had unified the various different states of Germany into one country meant there was a huge surge in Nationalism. Kaiser Wilhelm II ascended to the German throne in 1888 and as a representation of the aggressive personality of the new leader there was a change in foreign policy as Germany embarked on a ‘Neuer Kurs’ this lead to Von Bismarck being sacked and Germany becoming a much more aggressive nation.
