"We have seen the last of neutrality in these circumstances... the world must be made safe for democracy..." This was said by President Woodrow Wilson in his speech to the U.S. Senate on January 22, 1917. He said these words to show his change of opinion regarding the United States' involvement in World War One. There were several events that occurred which changed America's view on neutrality.The first reason that forced the United States to reconsider their foreign policy neutrality at the start of World War One was the sinking of the Lusitania. The Lusitania was a British steamship that was torpedoed on May 7, 1915. "The fact that more than one hundred American citizens were among those who died made it the duty of the Government of the United States to speak of these things once more, with sincere emphasis to call the attention of the German Government to the fact that they were responsible for the action."

Albert Speer, one of Adolf Hitlers closest companions, best friend and Architect of the Third Reich played a very significant role in regards to the Reich. Some even suggesting that he was second in charge, Speer began Architecture in 1927 after studying at a few institutions before completing his degree in Berlin. Arguably the most significant moment in Albert Speer’s career was when he was appointed “Minister For Armaments and Munitions”. Up until February 1942 Speer denied all involvement with the governance of the Third Reich, he was just Architect in a private practice with a client, friend and neighbour named Adolf Hitler. He was thrown into government on the 7th of February when the former “Minister of Armaments and Munitions”, Dr Fritz Todt, died in an plane crash.

Research Task on the Opening Stages of World War One 1. Who were the following people and what role did they play in the opening stages of World War One? a) Von Moltke - Upon Alfred von Schlieffen's retirement in 1906 Moltke became Army Chief of Staff. His predecessor had drawn up the famous Schlieffen Plan, to be used during war to quickly defeat France in the west by means of a rapid, overwhelmingly powerful flank attack through Belgium and Holland, whilst a small army kept Russia at bay in the east. b) Von Falkenhayne - He served as Chief of the Imperial German General Staff for part of the First World War before his eventual dismissal by Kaiser Wilhelm II. c) Sir John French - French was promoted to Field Marshal in 1913 following a varied and distinguished career to date, which included the Sudan Campaign of 1884-85 and notable service as a cavalry officer in the Boer War.
He joined a group of young reformers, a group which included David Lloyd George, who was to be Prime Minister through the First World War. This group left their mark by a series of welfare reforms that were the beginning of the welfare state – a social system whereby the state takes responsibility for health, education and employment. The fact that these changes, coupled with Churchill's mutual agreement with the government on building new dreadnoughts, managed to alleviate Churchill into the Cabinet after being in politics for just eight years suggests that Churchill wasn't a political failure. In 1911, Churchill was moved from the position of Home Secretary to First Lord of the Admiralty. This position gave him the power of the Royal Navy.
To what Extent is William Wilberforce responsible for ending slavery in the British Empire?
