There were more weapons as USA had a lot of resources, the soldiers were not too experienced but there were many, USA had a lot of food for the allies, and since USA was such a big country the Allies’ citizens were more hopeful of winning the war. USA joined the war because of the deaths of 128 Americans on the Lusitania, in 1915. Many Americans were outraged with the fact that Germans would sink their boats, even though they were neutral in the start of the war. In 1917, the German unrestricted submarine warfare was declared, America was no longer cautious towards Germany. When Germany asked Mexico to join the war against USA, this message was deciphered and led to the entry of USA in the war.
I think the work of the younger pitt was important because he made it possible for trade to expand by reducing smuggling. He also lowered taxes for people who could not afford it and recognised that the financial system was inefficient and money was being wasted. Also I think his work was important because he appreciated the strength of the demand for parliamentary reform and decided to do something about it. He recognised the corruption in the system especially in rotten burroughs and decided to act against it by abolishing the rotten burroughs and transferring these seats to london and the counties. The french Revolution was a significant influence on parliamentary reform because people hoped it's existance would bring about change by force britain to change its laws and allow them the same freedoms as anglicans.
Caprivi decided Germany must export. It was between men and goods but Germany could not afford to export men for imperial security. Caprivi negotiated commercial treaties which assured Germany of markets for industrial exports for the next twelve years in return for a reduction of the tariffs on cattle, timbre, rye and wheat. Between 1891 and 1894, treaties were signed with Italy, Austria-Hungary, Russia, Belgium and several other countries. This policy gained a broad spectrum of support as most parties, apart from the Conservatives, realised the benefits of lower food prices.
This allowed the far right to exploit the Germans hate of the treaty of Versailles and connect the treaty to democracy, so the people wouldn’t blame the loss of ww1 on the army but the democratic politician’s. This led to an increase in public support for a more authoritarian dictatorial system the strengthening the far-right. The other main reason the loss
This shows that they were unsuccessful and successful with this aim. Another aim of the League was to encourage countries to co-operate especially in business and trades which was unsuccessful. International treaties were made in the 1920's and one of them was The Dawes Plan in 1924, this was USA lending money to Germany to help it pay its reparations bill. This was successful as Germanys economy rose, which meant it was less likely to start a war. Also trading with Britain, France and others countries gained more money, Americas loans to Germany helped increase employment which then increased international industry, which then
Because of the tax placed on liquor to help eliminate the country’s financial debt, the Whiskey rebellion was born; making this another one of President Washington’s problematic issues. The Pennsylvanian farmers considered Whisky as their most profitable product and their form of money. They thought the taxation was unfair and this completely infuriated them, so in 1794, they armed themselves and started an uprising against the taxes. Obtaining a better relationship with Great Britain was another troubling area for Washington. During 1793 to 1815 the French revolution caused war to break out between Great Britain, its allies and France.
The background for the rise of the organized crime and mobsters like Al Capone was the prohibition law. In January 1920, The American government passed the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, also known as the Prohibition Law – The manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages was made illegal. The government believed that it would help to improve the quality of American lives and protect the families from the effects of abuse of alcohol, but it instead of reducing the crime, it caused the opposite – Mobsters saw this as a great opportunity to take over the importing industry (Bootlegging), manufacturing and distributing of alcoholic drinks, which caused to a growth in crime. Another reason for the popularity of the organized crime was also the great depression in the late 1920's – People needed to provide for their families, and being part of the organized crime was an easy way to make money, because of the high demand for alcohol. Al Capone was born in January 1899 in Brooklyn to a family of Italian immigrants.
Prolonged warfare with Germany was more appealing than surrender and facing being controlled by a German state. Prime Minister Viviani made this clear in December 1914 when, in a speech to the Chamber, he said ‘France would not make peace without regaining Alsace-Lorraine and restoring Belgian prosperity and independence.’ Goemans comments ‘France need these provinces and their mineral deposits to redress the (economic) imbalance of power with Germany’. Consequently Alsace-Lorraine was particularly vital to economic progress within France and public morale. By December 1914 it was becoming
I know from my background knowledge that once Hitler was named Chancellor big bankers and industrialists, including Krupp and I. G. Farben, had lobbied Hindenburg and schemed behind the scenes on behalf of Hitler because they were convinced he would be good for business. Hitler promised to be for free enterprise and keep down Communism and the trade union movements. Being appointed as Chancellor also was a starting point to his dictatorship as without it he would have been able to continue his consolidation and wouldn’t have been able to pass such laws as the Enabling Act. Another way Hitler established a dictatorship was through the passing of the Enabling Act 1933. This established a dictatorship because it allowed Hitler to arguably do whatever he pleased.
Towards the end of the war however, people had problems with supporting the war when there was national problems which should be dealt with instead of the war. The horrible situation in Britain by 1902 was reflected in economy, health, education and poverty problems. This was the focus of the Liberal party, and they therefore got increasingly popular. Firstly, the motive of the war is the main reason for why one may argue that the popular enthusiasm did decline as a result of the Boer War. Imperialism was seen as more and more capitalism.
