Propaganda was very important in the Nazi’s maintaining their power once they won the election in 1933. In the Nazis campaigns previous to them gaining power, they had exploited all the media they could in order to appeal to the public. Hitler’s speeches were played on the radio, his beliefs were written about in Nazi newspapers and magazines and posters containing horrific propaganda were placed everywhere. The public were bombarded with so much powerful propaganda that it could be argued that it would be almost impossible for them not to become attracted to the Nazi party in some way. This propaganda continued even once they had won the election.
Assess the view that the most important element in maintaining Hitler's regime in power between 1933 and 1945 was the consent of the German people There was an original view that the German people feared the regime but there has been a view put forward that the German people actually helped the regime by participating with the Gestapo but still many people believe that the German populace lived in fear of the regime. This was because of many different reasons like the use of Propaganda to control the minds of the Germans. The use of fear to make sure that they acted in the way that the regime demanded. Another key element in the regime was the use of fear to scare the Germans into supporting them. The removal of the opposition was also a useful fact into the Nazis staying in power.
While many people may have thought that this film was just a beautiful love story between Rick and Ilsa, most did not know that its true meaning was much more significant than that. This was an early war film released in 1942 when citizens all over Europe were fleeing from the Nazis. At this time, most Americans were not too excited about the idea of entering the war to help the fight against the Nazis. Hollywood noticed this and they ended up making Casablanca, which was a pro-interventionist film to try and get Americans to support the war. Throughout this paper I will explain how Casablanca was a pro-interventionist film and how its main character, American nightclub owner Rick, changed his ways.
Propaganda was used in World War One as in any other war and the truth suffered. Propaganda ensured the government put out information that only the government wanted people to know about. The government wanted everyone to think the way they wanted them to think and controlled all forms of media.. Propaganda during the World Wars was used to increase support for the war and commitment to Allied victory. Using a wide variety of media, that included music, silent films, and radio, propagandists implied hatred for the enemy and support for America's allies.
Explain why the Nazi Regime proclaimed “Total War” in February 1943. (12 Marks) One factor behind why the Nazi regime went ahead with total war was because it offered a chance to revive public morale following the defeat at Stalingrad. The public morale down at this point however going to war with allies seemed the perfect opportunity in regaining the trust of people in the regime. Josef Goebbels speech proved to be a great example in uplifting the people’s moods in regards to total war.

It is used to manipulate information to influence public opinion, through emotional appeals and demise of the enemy, to create hatred between countries. It promoted patriotism and nationalism within a country. Britain did not have a policy of national service; this was standard in countries such as France and Germany.

The government did this by displaying posters stating ‘your country
The more the movie went into depth, the more stronger the similarities and differences presented themselves. As the stories of these heroes unraveled, comparing and contrasting the psyche, the brutality ,the moral and ethical conflicts in great war movies such as the “Lone Survivor”(Berg.2014), and “Apocalypse Now”(Coppola.1979), was not as hard as imagined. The psyche of a man in war is really captured in both these movies. Of the two movies,”Apocalypse now”() really captures a stronger sense of what war can do to a soldier’s mental status, one example of a deteering mind is Colonel Kurtz. This man reputation was one of the greatest to ever represent his country, he was the 4.0 kid who never did anything wrong and was on pace to be up at the very top of the ranks the military can offer.
This means that politics places itself above war and modify it to suit its needs, with Clausewitz arguments, it is difficult to think of war as something apart from politics. The Clausewitz's theory underwent a lot of criticism by the end of the Cold War due to the transformational changes that took place in the international system which altered the nature of war (Shaw
The OWI would manipulate the scripts and outcomes of many films for the benefits of the country as a whole. These books were historical contexts on films during the time of war. The books found were historical because they went over the history of World War II during this time, and they were also able to glimpse at the history of film. Both books made it obvious to their readers that the government played a major role in cinema during this time. Pressure from the war was high, and any way for the government to interlude propaganda to the public in order to boost morale was
Anyone that he didn’t want alive, didn’t have much of a chance to survive. He used his influence to start World War II and influenced the Germans to fight for their country. Other ways that Hitler influenced the German citizens included making many appearances in front of large crowds by using military music. He had “elaborate ceremonies and dramatic speeches to demonstrate the glory of Germany and of his own leadership” (“Hitler, Adolf”). It is generally accepted that once someone is famous or popular, they can become influential and so it
