The colonists lacked the amount of supply that the British had, they made up with this by having better weaponry. The British had an upper hand with economics over the colonists during the war The leadership and support of the Americans was greater than the British leadership and support, which was an advantage for the Americans. The American general, George Washington, was an intelligent fighter and politician. The British leaders, Howe and Clinton, made errors during the war that strongly hindered their outcome. The American’s original support was their morale and familiar terrain.
Their soldiers were well equipped, well disciplined, well paid, and well fed. The British navy dominated the seas. Funds were much more easily raised by the Empire than by the Continental Congress. Some of those funds too were used to hire Hessian mercenaries to fight the Americans. The British had a winning tradition so to speak.
The American Revolutionary War The American victory in the Revolutionary War was a striking demonstration of the solidarity and resolve of American colonists in pursuit of independence from Britain. Despite immense advantages favoring the British army, American colonists were able to defeat their oppressor, the British Crown. Aside from the sheer determination of the American patriots, a variety of factors contributed to the awe-inspiring triumph over the British. Some of the more significant factors included a plethora of geographic obstacles encountered by the British army, support from other countries, and the historic leadership exhibited by General George Washington. At the onset of the Revolutionary War, the British army was arguably the best trained, best equipped, and most professional army in the world and its Royal Navy was unparalleled.
The opinion of “why” the North won when the South had fewer loss of men was answered in many different ways. Many can say the North won because of them wanting freedom for all, but that does not change the amount of people fighting on opposite sides. The North had more men to fight in the war, so even though the South suffered less loss of men it still did not even out the numbers, not to mention the North was continually enrolling more men to fight during the course of the war. Another reason could be the loss of Stonewall Jackson and the confidence that took from the confederate soldiers. I also think that the North gained major strength after the win at Gettysburg.
Many European countries had an increased sense of nationalism, or pride for their country. The British believed that they were “the finest race in the world, and the more of the world [they] inhabit, the better…” (D #4). Britain believed, as a country that capturing other countries would be beneficial. Many countries also felt that they could “uplift and civilize” other countries by capturing and influencing them (D #7). Since the entire country of Britain supported imperialism, the government didn’t have to worry about any backlash in its own
Thesis Paragraph. Contrary to popular belief, sectionalism was not of greater significance during the Era of Good Feelings. In fact, nationalism was more so superior during this time period. Even prior to the Era of Good Feelings nationalism had already been greatly felt after the War of 1812 when the United States reigned victorious. Nationalism was more significant because of foreign affairs, internal improvements, and a single political party.
We all know that Spaniards victory over the Incas was a real breath taker. If I were to have witnessed the battle I would’ve never taken into consideration that Pizzaro might have been the winner of it all. Pizzaro’s victory wasn’t only because of military skill; in fact he had many advantages on his side. Some of those advantages had to do with technology, religion, disease, literacy, and government organization. In these next few paragraphs I will explain how Pizzaro ended up victorious.
Britain had strong allies which cooperated with the nation well to achive victory against Germany.For example,the Colonies provided great manpower and supplied food.Also in 1917,U.S.A joined the war which provided great manpower and brought resources useful in war.However,Germany’s allies were practically useless. They did little to pressurize the enemies and unable to provide huge resources.Sometimes,Germany's obligations to assist its allies had a serious impact on the outcome of the war in the Western Front,since they forced the nation to transfer large amounts of manpower to other fronts,something which its allies did not do to the same extent.Also, the Italians changed sides as soon as war broke out which was unexpected and might have influenced the initial plans and strategies of the Central
This was one of his greatest feats because they became a force to be reckoned with. The increased military provided more than security for the nation but allowed them to expand. Other reforms included the increase of trade through changing the no foreign trade policy to becoming world sea trade center and his reforms that set in motion the application of western mercantilism to stimulate agriculture, industry and commerce which helped to make him a remembered as a great leader. His active foreign policy was meant to increase contact between foreign countries all while battling in a war that would not conclude for twenty-one years. I think that although Peter the Great had some controversial reforms, in the areas of religion, fashion, and social laws I believe that his most successful attempts to westernize Russia were the reorganization of the government, the establishment of the army and navy, increasing of trade, and active foreign policy; making him the greatest tsar’s in Russian
They were able to process and disseminate information much more quickly. Another powerful asset of the North was its navy. Much has been said about the victories the Union army enjoyed but the naval blockade imposed on the South had a crippling effect on the ability of the Confederacy to trade its resources for much needed war materials and
