The Bolsheviks had a huge strategic advantage due to their geographical position within Russia, in that they had control over major cities such as Moscow and Petrograd, which had many people within them. Due to this they controlled major factors and therefore could retrieve large quantities of war materials. The industry was also very efficient due to the huge mass population in which the majority supported the Bolsheviks. Due to these factors the Red army were very self-sufficient and had a military advantage over the white forces that had to depend on limited, foreign aid. Their control over major cities and thus access to more weapons therefore lead to the Communist victory in the Civil War.
In this paper, I will discuss how Roland describes a nation at war with itself, why the American Civil War was the first modern war, the most significant battles, military leadership, and the resulting national ideals that emerged from the war. During the 1830’s and 1840’s, the North experienced an uprising of social transformation in its intellectual and religious life (Roland 9). Included in the transformation were progressive movements dedicated to temperance, feminism, pacifism, and the general support of society through education (Roland 9). The South discarded reforms, most of what they considered theoretical, taking place in the North. In response, the South turned progressively more conservative in their thinking and viewed slavery as “positive good” rather than a “necessary evil” (Roland 9).
Given the circumstances, I would say unfortunately, yes, this war was inevitable given the circumstances under which it came. The three main causes, infringement on civil liberties, infringement on states' rights, and the collapse of the two-party system, made the conflict between North and South almost impossible to resolve. When Abraham Lincoln was elected into presidency, it was implied in his inauguration speech that he was one who would abide more by Northern interests. First North Carolina, then other Southerners responded by doing what they had the *right* to do if they felt the government had become too oppressive: they filed a declaration of secession from the Union. Unfortunately, Lincoln called this secession a Rebellion instead of what it was.
One example appears for you. Somebody ... | Wanted ... | But ... | So ... | President Abraham Lincoln | the nation to heal as quickly as possible from the Civil War and planned to reunify the nation quickly | he was assassinated in 1865 only days after Robert E. Lee’s surrender | plans for Reconstruction were taken over by Vice President Andrew Johnson, who became president after Lincoln’s death | President Andrew Johnson | The reconstruction act of 1867 which undo everything Johnson completed and dismissed Stanton once brought them impeachment charges against Johnson. | He was exasperated towards the radical republicans who actually thought he was too sympathetic. | Which started The congress to begin passing bills that would amend the reconstruction polices. | Radical Republicans | They control the south to help prevent them from returning to their war ways.
The Civil War’s causes can be traced back for years and all of U.S. history had been building up to that war. Though the Civil War happened 145 years ago, that doesn’t mean we still aren’t feeling the effects today. Slavery was one issue resolved in the Civil War. Who knows where we would be right now had it not been abolished by the Civil War. We might still be fighting for the rights of African Americans.
Blitzkrieg was a very successful tactic for Germany which initially brought them success. The Blitzkrieg strategy described an all motorized force of artillery, combat and air power, concentrating overwhelming force at high speed to break enemy line and the element of surprise being the biggest advantage. Battles were quick and decisive victories with little cost to manpower and resources. For example Germany was able to defeat Poland in less than a month and capture France in six weeks. Blitzkrieg was able to change warfare because it contributed towards fast and easy advances, with the power of a surprise element Germany was able to advance through several neighboring countries such as Denmark, Holland, Belgium and Norway as well as defeat a world power, even though France had more weaponry as well as men.
Much of this investment came from already industrialized countries like Germany, Great Britain, and France whose business owners looked for new investment opportunities in the United States. These investors put money into the work of mechanics and engineers with the expertise to develop new, more efficient ways of mass-producing goods. Machines benefited the United States by allowing business owners to specialize in the production of goods and manufacture them in large quantities to distribute throughout the nation or export. As a result, the cost of mass-produced goods went down as their quantity went up causing industrial profits to rise. With the creation of transcontinental railroads and telephones, marketing nationally was available to distribute these goods.
What caused the Civil War? Is it accurate to say that the Civil War was about slavery? If slavery or even the slavery extension issue caused the war then why was there not a war in 1820 or 1832 or 1846 or 1850 or 1854? The American Civil War was and is one of the most horrific casualty causing wars the United States has ever been involved in; it was a war that waged for over four years and caused over 600,000 casualties and dead. The war was due to a culmination of events ranging from the institution of slavery, its implications on society, and the economic impact slavery was having on society.
Furthermore, for many centuries, European nations had been building empires, slowly extending their economic and political control over various peoples of the world and practicing imperialism. Colonies supplied the European imperial powers with raw materials and provided markets for manufactured goods. As Germany industrialized, it competed with France and Britain in the contest for colonies. In continuation, because each nation wanted stronger armed forces than those of any potential enemy, the imperial powers followed a policy of militarism—the development of armed forces and their use as a tool of diplomacy. Empires were expensive to build and to defend, and the growth of nationalism and imperialism led to increased military spending.
The United States of America originally consisted of 13 states but was gradually expanded until it took the shape we know today with 50 states and Washington D.C. being the capital district. The United States of America’s greatest crisis was undoubtedly the American Civil War, which took place in the years between 1861 and 1865. There were several causes to the war because the differences between the North and South states being numerous, but the main reason was probably the issue of slavery and this was certainly the triggering factor, and not actually because the Northern states would have prohibited slavery in the Southern states, but because of the disagreement between
