Chieftain Philip was continually believed to be the man who brought about All the conflict. The British settlers had a right motive to firmly address the Native Americans (Document D). It was a compromise that the Native Americans would owe a capital, the natives concurred. Do to Inside information it was found out that Philip was planning bad news. Because of the brutal and spontaneous attack on the Europeans, by the Natives (Document B), the Europeans had time to supply themselves with defenses against the Indians.
By defeating the northern army on their own grounds, he hoped to bring the population of the north into a panic and settle for peace. He hoped this would convince them to allow the south their own country. General James Longstreet was General Lees second in command of the Northern Virginian Army. Historian Jeffery Welt wrote that General Longstreet was the finest corp commander in the army of Virginia. He also stated that Longstreet was the best corp commander in the civil war conflict on either
Hitler knew that he could hold off the Eastern Allies but were struggling to do them same with the Western, so Hitler wanted to get rid of the Western Allies first and then to defeat the Eastern. Germany’s western boarder was being to get surrounded and threated by Allied forces – from the southern end alongside France to the hilly and forested Ardennes area in the north. Once the Ardennes was mentioned to Hitler he knew that he had victory and had a plan. The Ardennes was a heavily wooded area that stretched through eastern Belgium and Luxembourg to northeastern France. The Ardennes had already played a great victory for the Germans because in early 1940, Hitler’s soldiers and tanks blasted its way through its rugged terrain in the Blitzkrieg attack (Blitzkrieg meaning “lightning warfare” because of the speed with which the attack advances.)
This speech is very powerful and when someone is feeling unmotivated and depressed it has the ability to stir you to focus. Henry knew that he was sending his troops out into a battle they would lose but instead of dwelling on this Henry convinces his men that the battle is more than a mathematical formula that they have all come there to fight for honour, for justice and for glory. He makes fighting with him at Agincourt sound like a privilege. Henry also brings up, once more the motif of the bond between kind and commoner. In the scene before the battle of Harfleur, he unites himself with his men, he says “We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
He was a very experienced and ruthless military commander, ruler and administrator who had unified Normandy and inspired fear and respect outside of his duty. From a young age he had learnt that in order to survive he had to ‘meet force with force’ – a lesson he had learnt from the assassinations attempts he endured after being named Duke of Normandy at aged 7. His frequent practice of this belief – in every battle he fought, including that against the unruly barons who had tried to assassinate him – shows that William believed military tactics an skills were important to succeed in life and so had the upper hand when it came to the Battle of Hastings, and his persistent bravery in the face of danger led to his reputation of being a skilled and successful battle leader. Furthermore, William knew that his cavalry was extremely important and had learnt this from previous battles he had fought, e.g. at Civitate in 1053 where the skilled and co-ordinated use of lances while on horse led to a Norman victory over the Germans.
Paul Fussell begins “Thank God for the Atom Bomb” with a quote from an advertisement: “In life, experience is the great teacher” (13). Throughout the paper, he argues that experience is necessary in order to make informed, pragmatic decisions. Accordingly, he uses ad hominem attacks on people who do not have experience with war yet still preferred invading Japan to dropping the atom bomb. He explains that using the atom bomb was necessary because Japan was not going to surrender – Japan’s war minister wanted to “fight to the bitter end, defending the main islands with the same techniques and tenacity employed at Iwo and Okinawa” (Fussell, 22), and after the Emperor did surrender following the atom bombs being dropped, many soldiers committed suicide because of the dishonor (Fussell, 23) – and an invasion could have had 1,000,000 American casualties (Fussell, 15). The ad hominem attacks are not necessary to support his argument that dropping the bomb was the right decision because he refutes opponents’ arguments before resorting to ad hominem, so the ad hominem must have a different purpose altogether.
I feel it was more positive towards Sam because in my organizer he was very hard on the Soldiers but also that’s good because it makes the soldiers stronger and he taught them how to win wars. Sam did the right decision when he told Lord Kitchener that he wouldn’t let the Canadians be spread throughout the English army, only thing he did was made the Canadians use the Ross rifle when the Soldiers truly hated it because it was single shot bolt action. 3. Describe what it was like for a Canadian soldier fighting in World War I, based on what you see in the two paintings by Richard Jack (The Second Battle of Ypres (1915) and The Battle of Vimy Ridge (1917)) and the letters written by Sergeant Harry Leacock and Captain Harold Tylor.

The British public, army and the government themselves were not expecting such a strong resistance by the Boer tribes. This made the public question the current government. It seemed to them that the government had allowed the British army to become weak and send them into battle without preparation and also without them being healthy enough to fight, this began to give the Tories a bad name. Also the Boer war may have been a reason and incentive for Chamberlain, the sectary of state for the colonies, tariff reform campaign, which had a huge part to play in the Unionist split.
Aske and the 300 other rebel leaders at Doncaster believed that they had won a great victory. He travelled to London at the king’s request to meet Henry who had asked to be briefed about the feelings of the people so that any future problems could be avoided. Aske saw this as a sign that the king was a decent person and that it was advisors who were failing the country. In fact, Henry was simply buying time. He had already determined that the north had to be taught a military lesson.
The Atlantic Wall is a series of obstacles the Germans set out for the Allies and it proved extremely effective. Rommel’s plan was to make his army as strong as possible on and near the shore. He believed that thousands of troops should be relocated to the beaches if attacked because the more soldiers, the longer the Germans would be able to hold the beach. He knew if the Allies successfully landed their troops and equipment, there was nothing the Germans could do to stop them from pushing into France and Germany. Rommel inspected the fortifications around the beaches chosen and found that if and when the Allies bombed the beach before the invasion, the German defenses would be obliterated.
