Affective or Not, Here Comes Germany The allies won World War One, but the leadership was not effective. In my essay I will be talking about three major battles. First I will be talking about the battle of Somme, led by the poor leadership of Sir Douglas Haig. Second I will be talking about Passchendaele, also led by Haig and “the bloody learning curve”. In my third paragraph I will talk about Vimy Ridge, lead by the great General Arthur Currie and his success with Canada.
Borden knew the war could not be won without reinforcements and so he decided to pass the conscription bill. (Cruxton and Wilson, 118). In 1940, though Mackenzie King had promised no conscription, he passed the national resources mobilization act—this was conscription but only to protect Canada at home. But as war continued Mackenzie King was asked to send additional troops and just like in 1917 most volunteers were English, not French-Canadian. The English-Canadians sought after full conscription like Britain and the United States, while the French-Canadians still did not want any form of conscription.
Doyle 1 Camp X greatly contributed to the allied victory of World War Two, Canadian history, and history in general as it was also the forerunner to the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). With Britain facing uncertainty in the war, Prime Minister Winston Churchill wanted something to be done fast to turn the war effort in their favor. Therefore the Canadians led by William Stephenson, who was a close ally to Churchill, created a secret military training base to prepare a new breed of soldier. Camp X was then born to gather intelligence to be used strategically towards the war effort. It was this factor that helped create the victory of D-Day and lead to the allied victory.
As the war continued on Britain would eventually will the fight and take control of what was known as the Ohio River Valley as well as land in Canada. This was an unwelcomed war by the colonists that lead to questionable decisions from the British government. The British government faced two main problems after winning the French Indian War that the colonies were starting to come very independent and
Howe wanted negotiation more than outright victory because he was not only commander in chief but (together with his brother, Adm. Lord Richard Howe) peace commissioner in America. This schizoid role handicapped him both as military leader and as diplomat; yet events of summer and fall 1776 suggested that he would succeed. After the British evacuated Boston, defeats and disaster filled the rest of 1776. The army Congress had sent to invade Canada in June 1775 collapsed in the summer of 1776. After capturing Montréal, the Continentals failed to take Québec, and were forced to raise their siege when British reinforcements arrived by ship in May.

I believe the Constitution did a better job of protecting liberties, specifically in the areas of the federal court system, representation of the people, and the levy of taxes. Alexander Hamilton, statesman and economist, proclaimed "Laws are a dead letter without courts to expound and define their true meaning and operation”. The Articles of Confederation which gave rise to the Confederation government that took effect in March 1781, did not give the national government any means to enforce the federal laws. The states could, and often did, choose to interpret or enforce federal laws in any manner they saw fit. This led to disputes amongst the states that could not be readily settled, as it relied on each state’s court system which invariably chose to discount the ruling of the other states.
Essay The Secessionist Crisis in Canada: The Inevitable Rift between the Francophone and Anglophones Rei Kodra Political Science 412 Professor Dunphy November 25, 2013 The secession of Quebec has always been a problem for the national unity of Canada. There is no doubt that it has created a rift between the French and English side. Although this rift relies on the historical context of this relationship, it is more important to focus on the last fifty years of this strained dilemma. Therefore, it is important to emphasize that while Quebec does indeed impact Canadian federalism both positively and negatively, the same is to be said about Canada having a significance on Quebec nationality. The clash between these two aspects of
The statement "America was conquered in Germany" means that whichever country would prove to be the most powerful in Europe would boost the rights to America since allegedly no troops where worthy enough to send them to America.
