An influential nobleman, the Duke of Northumberland, was killed by the rebels whilst attempting to negotiate a peace with them. This may have been an advantage to Henry, as Northumberland was a possible future traitor; although he had not backed Richard at the Battle of Bosworth, he had not openly supported Henry either. This sort of open rebellion and the murder of a major noble will most likely have come as a shock to Henry, however, which may have accounted for the way in which he dealt with the rebellion afterwards. Another thing that shows Henry’s difficulty in dealing with this rebellion is that afterwards he did not collect taxes from Yorkshire for the war with France, which ultimately led to his defeat. This shows that Henry caved
It is true that the English navy’s long range canons prevented the Spanish from exercising tier preferred method of attach, which was to mount the oppositions ships. On the other hand the weather played a huge role in the Armada’s defeat as strong winds blew them off course. It is therefore debatable whether Elizabeth dealt with the problem at all, let alone effectively. There is the possibility that if the Armada had reached the shores of England, despite their numerical superiority, would have lost to the professional Hapsburg army. Although the Armada failed this may not really be due to the effectiveness of Elizabeth and her government.
Government In times of Crisis Mayor Rudy Giuliani has earned great praise for the role he played in the response to the terrorist attack in New York on September 11th at the time, but he has also become the subject of heavy speculation regarding preparedness before the attack and aspects of the response afterwards. His major fault was in his immediate reaction of assurance because it was indeed lack of preparedness that could have led to the deaths of the first responders at the scene of the attacks. Another ill prepared aspect of the event was The Office of Emergency Management being in the World Trade Center therefore unable to coordinate efforts between police and firefighters for the rescue properly due to their own evacuation from the attacks at the time. Giuliani was highly visible in the aftermath of September 11th. After the attacks, Giuliani coordinated the response of various city departments while organizing the support of state and federal
Pearl Harbor Address December 8th, 1941 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt attempted to incite action into a nation of troubled Americans after a sudden Japanese onslaught. In his address to congress given the day after the Japanese bombings was a request for a declaration of war upon Japan. Roosevelt created a speech that was dramatic, sufficient, and to the point therefore, understandable to the nation of worried Americans. The purpose of his speech was to clearly present the details of the attack, reveal the Japanese threat along the Pacific, and to thrust America into military action, which successfully led to the United States declaring war with Japan. Throughout the United States, American citizens were still reeling from the attack on Pearl Harbor.
M.L Bush said that ‘It was interconnected regional rebellions rather than one fluid movement’ because once the rebels had gone back to where they lived dotted across the North of England they would all have to meet up rather than go down to London in one group. Also the rebels outnumbered the King’s army 4:1 when they were confronted at the River Don. Instead of accepting the King’s pardon they should have risked battle once they dispersed they were no longer a threat to Henry. They were the stronger force but they tried to negotiate before they had achieved anything. This is another point towards poor leadership because there was no clear plan in how they were going to get their terms accepted only what terms they wanted.
The source is from a modern book named ‘Britain and Ireland, from Home Rule to Independence’ and so you could argue the source is to be given some validity however given that it is a modern text you could question some of the information it presents as it is not a primary source of information. The source suggests that Asquith’s policy and attitude was not proactive enough, therefore criticising his methods. The source states that this as well as his ‘blunder’ of including Ulster in the Home Rule Bill of 1912, which subsequently caused the first and immediate threat of Civil War in Ireland was just some of the error. This source therefore supports this view to a great extent because of this evidence. Source 8 does not support this view, however the only evidence supporting it being that tensions between Nationalists and Unionists was high and that because of their differences Ireland was preparing for a Civil War, as suggested by source 7.
Power is a privilege and should only be given to those who can handle it. The act of counterfeit can often hinder success. King Henry himself rose to the thrown with help from the Percy’s as he “stole all the courtesy from heaven” and broke Richard’s “divine right” to being King. Although he is successful in gaining power, because of its illegitimacy, Henry struggles to use his this effectively. As he suggests to Hal, he wants to be “like a comet” to be seen on a rare basis to be “wondered at” by his subjects.
There were many political reasons which influenced the increase of state control over society, for example the shell scandal. The nature of this total war left Britain unprepared, as it was nothing like expected, which left them ill-equipped in terms of ammunition supplies. The “shell scandal” of 1915 emerged due to a newspaper article suggesting that British troops had a lack of shells and so were unable to make headway. This called for greater control of labour and industrial war production rather than relying on private enterprise and the market economy to determine production, as this was clearly not working. This scandal also led to Asquith setting up a coalition government with the
Laura Chen 401110597 Composition and Conversation II─ Dr. Murphy RR4 23 June 2014 Is Pearl Harbor a Fiction or a Real War? Entertaining Purpose Makes Pearl Harbor Lose Historical Accuracy There are many documentaries about the historical event, Pearl Harbor attack; however, none of them is more famous and well-known than the film Pearl Harbor (2001). When watching the film Pearl Harbor, audience can be entertained with compelling story and cool visual effects which are absent in documentaries. Conversely, Pearl Harbor would be too entertaining to be historically accurate, and it brings audience the wrong concept about Pearl Harbor attack. The film production of Pearl Harbor should be responsible for this negative result, because “most
However, it was intercepted, decrypted, and published in newspapers as propaganda. The telegram and the excessive sea warfare definitely played a part in America going to war, however, there are additional possibilities, if not definite reasons, that lead the U.S. into war. Because of possible economic collapse according to the Glider Lehrman Institute of American History, "By 1917, American loans to the Allies had soared to $2.25 billion; loans to Germany stood at a paltry [measly] $27 million." If not anything else, this would be a huge reason to go to war. Two and a quarter billion dollars is a large sum of money, and if the United States were to lose this money, it would have more than likely been catastrophic and it would've brought about economic collapse in America.
