So for example if the allies in the west did not promise to rebuild Germany and try to stop every country from becoming communist when they threatened to even if it through fair vote (rare as it was). It can be argued that the cold war was an avoidable one. Firstly the Russians were very aggressive in creating a buffer zone and in fact created communist states practically all over Eastern Europe and made much more than a buffer zone and Stalin was at the heart of all these communist political movements and was trying to spread his influence to even Italy and France. This worried the west very much because they thought their very freedom was being threatened but more importantly the more states that became communist the less ttade there was. The west needed trade partners in the east and they couldn’t trade with communist states.
Both soldiers and civilians blame the defeats in the war and the growing crises on the home front on Tsar. Even the Tsars only army stated it wouldn’t support him if a revolution occurred. Explain the importance/significance of World War 1 to the downfall of the Tsar WWI was a very significant event on the rule of Tsar Nicholas 11. Although it initially bolstered his position, it then became a large factor that contributed to Nicholas’ downfall. The Country was ecstatic when the Tsar made the announcement that Russia was going to fight against Germany in WWI.
Clemenceau had wanted Germany weakened to the point where it would never be a danger to France ever again. He was angry that France got the Saar coalfields for only 15 years, and he was angry that the Rhineland was merely demilitarised – France had wanted it made into a powerless independent country, and Germany split up. Also, reparations were not high enough for Clemenceau. He wanted reparations so high that Germany would be crippled and paying for ever. Wilson (President of the USA) was dissatisfied also.
Italy is part of the big three but was not that important because Italy's experience in World War One was disastrous and ended with the insult of her 'reward' at the Versailles Settlement in 1919. Clemenceau wanted revenge for the Franco-Prussian war that started in 1870. The main agreements of the treaty of Versailles were: · Germany’s army was reduced to 100,000 men. · The German army was not allowed any tanks. · Germany was not allowed an air force.
He quotes that “future of all the American Republics is today in serious danger”. That is because and that is because we (America) cannot predict the time, place or method of our enemies attacks. He then begins to talk about America’s national policy quoting that “we strengthen the defense and the security of our own nation” by doing the second step of our national policy. In President Obama’s speech he say that all of America’s citizens should be able to live free from fear. Though he has the same thought as Roosevelt the fear has changed from war to terrorist attacks.
After the second world war, the Soviet Union occupied several countries in eastern Europe by not allowing them to have free elections. By doing that they created a buffer zone in order to protect their ideology. The government of America saw it as a violation of their pledge and the possible spread of the disliked ideology all over the world. This motivated the States to put their energy into an arms race and to be ready for a Soviet invasion, which actually never happened because this might not even have been the goal of the Soviet Union. In his work, Fleming explained that if the Soviets wanted to attack the united states of America they had done it because they had all the necessary equipment but at that period the nation was more interested in its inner politics than conquering the world.
This ruling is inadequate and can make the other countries aggressive and full of hatred. So Germany could get blaimed for World War one but there are many different attributes which made this war so horrible. The first mistake which Germany made was that the Kaiser gave Austria the total support if they wanted to attack Serbia. Of course Austria attacks Serbia with the mighty Germany behind there back. Austria would never made such demands if the German Kaiser wouldnt of promised unconditional support.
468). One can never put the world wars into the black-and-white categories of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ into which they have often been placed. But it will be interesting to explore the positive and negative effects of the wars, which changed the world forever as shown in The Earth and Its Peoples: A global History by Richard W. Bulliet et al., historical films like History Channel’s Manhattan Project - The Century and Heritage: Jews and Civilizations -a documentary by Brian Winston. The twentieth century began with a period of relative peace and economic growth in most parts of the world. But on June 28, 1914, “the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand triggered a chain of events” and escalated into a global war because of the competition between nationalism and imperialism as practiced by major European powers (Bulliet et al.
In 1874, Pope Pius IX openly encouraged Italian Catholics not to vote in the election of that year. The Catholic Church’s open hatred for the Liberal state influenced how Italians viewed the new system and this made it very difficult for the state to manage the
The Treaty of Versailles was unjust and unfair because it excluded Germany from the negotiations of the treaty, asked for unfair reparations, limited its army to anemic levels and stole all of it’s colonies. The reasons behind this treaty were simple. The Germans pleaded for peace as their citizens were hungry and war weary. As the result of Germany loosing the war, they were forced by the Allied Powers to either sign the treaty or to face the occupation of Allied troops. All the three Big leaders had different opinions on the aim of the treaty.
