Continuation of History Daniela de Lara UNIT 10 Chapter Thirty-Four: By the 1930s, extreme nationalists had gained power in Italy, Germany, and Japan, which became known as the Axis powers. By seeking to exp and through military conquest, these countries began World War II. In 1941, the United States entered the war as one of the Allied powers. VOCABULARY: Totalitarianism In 1924, Joseph Stalin became the dictator of the communist Soviet Union. Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler gained power by promising to restore German strength.
Who were the major players in the Spanish Civil War and how did they affect its course and outcome? For the first time in Spain’s history, 1931 marked the year that changed the country into an orderly democratic republic. The exile of King Alfonso XIII in 1931 because of the loss in support from the Spanish people only highlighted that the monarchy was doomed. Therefore, the Second Spanish Republic ruled from 1931 until 1937 and was under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera whose main aims was to modernize Spain through liberal, democratic means. Although, the development of change already faced opposition from right-winged supporters, including rich landowners who feared social changes that the Republic would try to implement.
However, Adolph Hitler’s Germany and Mussolini’s Italy, and Stalin’s Soviet Union threatened American democracy. World War II brought on new challenges for the FBI. As Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin, conquered Europe, the American Depression continued. The Depression provided the opportune time for radicalism in the United States as it did in Europe. European Fascists had their counterparts and supporters in the United States in the German-American Bund, Silver Shirts, and similar groups.
The investigation will address the question from a positivist approach, analyzing various sources, including books, websites and documentaries. The two sources selected for evaluation, The Storm Of War by Andrew Roberts, and How Hitler could have won World War II: The Fatal Errors That Lead To Nazi defeat, by Alexander Bevin, will be evaluated for their origins, purposes, values and limitations. B: Summary of Evidence “The Stalingrad campaign in Russia in 1942 is one of the most poignant examples ever recorded of a ruler engineering his own destruction” (Bevin 145). The campaign started with Operation Blau. Blau was the next step in Operation Barbarossa, created to focus on the invasion of the Caucasus and Southern Russia in the summer and autumn months (Preston 132).

History Internal Assessment Title: To what extent was Italy involved in the Operation Barbarossa? Plan of the Investigation(259) In this essay I will investigate to what extent Italy was involved in the Operation Barbarossa planned by Hitler during ww2, as the inability to communicate and join forces between Mussolini and Hitler led, to a large extent, to the failure of Hitler’s attempt of defeating Stalin. Therefore this essay aims to display the real effectiveness of Italy in the assault against the U.S.S.R. by highlighting the fundamental battles carried out by the Italian Army on the way to Stalingrad, the cooperation with Germans and Romanians in order to defeat the Russians, the reputation that Italy had in foreign countries such as Germany, Japan or U.S.A. and the strange reluctance of Hitler to rely on Mussolini’s state as an allied nations. This study will include a variety of diverse sources ; such as the novel ‘Operation Barbarossa-the case against Moscow’ written by Gary Komar, the historical book’ Barbarossa: the Axis and the Allies’ written by John Erickson, which were both published in Britain therefore exposing the British perspective, and the novel Rise and Fall of the third Reich of William L. Shirer. Furthermore I will watch documentary videos such as ‘L’Armata Italiana in Russia’ which describes well the different steps the Italian troops had to follow in order to help the Germans arrive in Stalingrad and ‘La disfatta in Russia’ which gives a detailed chronology of the most relevant battles occurred.
