21, 1942”. These two documents talk about the sadness of loss, safety of people and most of all loss of dignity. In document one Franklin Roosevelt talks about how the U.S was “suddenly And deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the empire of Japan.” This was FDR’s first statement in his speech to congress which made a very strong and bold point since the beginning. The reason I think it is strong and bold is because he begins with a very sensitive subject a day after a lot the American lives were lost. He then goes in and explains how the government was in the process of “peace in the pacific” when the attacked occurred meaning that they didn’t the U.S a chance to fix the problem before they attacked.
The Use of the Atomic Bomb The question is asked, Should have the United States used the Atomic Bomb to end WWII? My answer is absolutely, without a doubt, and my reasons are as follows. First off the world had been at war for over a decade (including German and Japanese aggressions prior to 1939). The United States had been at war in two theaters and had lost over 400,000 men (and women). As the war ended in Europe the U.S. focus was on Japan.
The modern world is still living with the consequences of World War II, the most powerful conflict in history. In the bloodshed, seventeen million military personnel died in the war. Moreover, civilian deaths in the Soviet Union and China alone totaled 30 million. Like any other major historical event, World War II has been reenacted in Hollywood movies. Likewise, like any historical movie, Pearl Harbor has generated debate about its historical accuracies or rather its historical inaccuracies.
WWI and the Daily Life of all Americans After a decade of unstable alliances and military buildups, World War I was triggered in 1914 by the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. It ended in 1918 with the Treaty of Versailles. During World War I the Food and Fuel Administration, Anti- German Hysteria, and Espionage and Sedition Acts were set into a dilemma. I believe public attitudes like Anti- German Hysteria was affected the most during the war. Through out the war many Americans were in an inadequate zone.
Together, the two bombs eventually killed an estimated 200,000 Japanese civilians. From a glance, the deed was plain brutal and ruthless but examining fully, the decision to drop the bomb saved many lives indirectly, both American and Japanese, and helped put an end to a horrific war. One of the main purposes of the atomic bomb was to prevent American casualties in the war. Although successful, invasion of Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa islands proved to be costly. Many American soldiers had sacrificed their valuable lives fighting.
Tsarina Alexandra was influenced by Gregori Rasputin, an unpopular and scruffy “holy” man, who was supposedly controlling her son’s haemophilia condition. Nicholas’s decisions at the Eastern Front caused the country's military failures; by 1917 over 1,300,000 men had been killed in battle, 4,200,000 wounded and 2,417,000 had been captured by the enemy. First World War had a disastrous impact on the Russian economy; food was in short supply and this led to rising prices. By January 1917 the price of commodities in Petrograd had increased by six times. In an attempt to increase their wages, industrial workers went on strike.
Many of the cities were occupied by Vietcong for many hours, or days. The US and South Vietnamese showed victory in regaining all the cities back, but they suffered many losses and lost almost all the American public support. The TET Offensive showed the American public the truth of Vietnam, and not what the Military wanted the people to hear. To many, the war was a lost cause, a waste of money and resources. Later, in March of 1968 the My Lai Massacre devastated a town of North Vietnamese citizens.
One of the restrictions put on the Germans was the amount of Soldiers that they could have. No more than 100,000 troops were to be in the army which left many soldiers frustrated. Most of these soldiers ended up joining nationalist’s party and extremists parties from both sides. With the extremists gathering members and supporters from ex-soldiers to Germans they were becoming a threat to the Weimar. The reason why so many people joined these extremists was that in the Treaty of Versailles the Germans would have to accept ‘the War guilt clause’.
If several countries declare war on each other then this is possible. This is my opinion but many people have other thoughts. World War One left 9,906,000 soldiers dead, 21,219,000 soldiers wounded and 7,750,000 soldiers missing. It was a conflict between the Allied Powers (France, Russia, Britain, Italy and the United States), and the Central Powers (Germany, Austria Hungary and the Ottoman Empire) (Alliances). The main causes of the war were the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, militarism, imperialism, Morocco 1904, Bosnia 1908 and the Balkan Wars.
In total, Germany lost over one million square miles of land and 12.5% of its inhabitants suddenly found themselves out of Germany's new borders. There were many economic impacts as well that also affected the rest off the world. Germany was blamed for World War One and, as a result, were held accountable for the cost of the war. The Treaty dictated that the substantial amount of money, called reperations, was to be paid to the Allies. The total agreed by the Allies in 1921 came up to £6,600 billion.
