War Essay Examples

"War Photograph" and "War Photographer"

...“How the blood stained into foreign dust” shows how, as a stain, it won't come out, and that the damage is permanent. The word foreign could be to do with the detached aspect of it having nothing to do with the photographer, wherever he is from. “A hundred agonies in black-and-white from which his editor will pick out five or six for Sunday's supplement.” this could show how you don't see the bigger picture, just what the magazine/ newspaper wants you to see, almost giving you the idea ...

World War II – Just War Theory

...This initial advancement by Japan resulted in massive death and military damage, leaving America an indisputable just cause for war. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.

World War II: The Road to War

...An example is in document 8, it states that “other countries could have intervened by armed force in 1933 to overthrow Hitler when he had come to power” this is saying that if many countries had worked together in the beginning when Hitler first took power (and took over Czechoslovakia) they would have been able to stop him from gaining power. It is clear that many things could have been done by other countries to stop Hitler on his rise to power. World War II spread too many countries becau...

Was the Mexican War a “Justifiable” War?

...All in all, the Americans waging war against the Mexicans had many contributing factors that ultimately led up to the defeat of the Mexicans. On one hand the war could be perceived as being “justifiable” as a result of James K. Polk offering money for the land coupled with his firm and intense tenet in manifest destiny. However, on the other hand the Mexican War could be viewed as being “unjustifiable” by how inferior the opposing force was in comparison to the American force; yet, we st...

Mexican War and the Spanish American War

...The superior powers, such as the United States, are always looking to profit themselves. During the Mexican war and the Spanish-American War, the dominance and ethnocentric ideals that America held flourished in many un-called-for, disrespectful disputes. The aggressive stance the troops held under Zachary Taylor under the orders of President Polk did not give room for negotiation. If the United States did not get what they wanted, they would insist by force, not by allowing the inferior nation ...

The War of 1812 and the Mexican-American War

...Th biggest major difference in the two treaties was the dealing with land, in the Treaty of Ghent the land was all returned to its original owner.

World War II: A Continuation Of The Great War

...The Treaty of Versaille, I believe, had only one main goal: To severely cripple Germany's imperial, military, economic powers so harshly that the country would never again be able to wage war. However, the treaty had the opposite effect on Germany. The country, with its devastated economy, turned to the radical ideas of Adolf Hitler. With his brilliance in reviving the country's power, the rebuilt empire would inevitably wage war on France and Britain, among others. Because of the poorly resolve...

Was the Cold War inevitable after World War II?

...Unless you believe in predeterminism, nothing is inevitable in history. However, some things have a higher probability of happening than others, and this is what this study addresses. It looks at possibilities other than the outcome which occurred and explores why these scenarios did not prevail. It then looks at the actual unfolding of events and the deeper history which led to the Cold War emerging between 1945 and 1947/48. It analyses the factors which inclined the world towards ideological p...

'The Happy Warrior' by William Wordsworth with 'The Happy Warrior' by Herbert Read

...Yet another way in which Read's poem could be read, is that the 'happy warrior' is a warrior that enjoys seeing people-the enemy- being killed. Most of the adjectives are unpleasant, and could be reflecting his character. Yet when you read the poem again and search for other meanings, it must also be noted that as well as showing how awful it is, there are also adjectives that are maybe describing the excitement of living on the edge; "Wild heart beat" and "Wide eyes search". This could perhaps ...

Global Warming

...We can prevent global warming from getting worse by ​ reducing our use of burning fossil fuels, planting trees, and recycling. Now you’re thinking how are we going to do this? Well it’s simple. There are two ways to reduce burning fossil fuels: use less energy and use non polluting energy sources such as solar and wind power. Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas ​ emitted through human activities. Planting trees is important because trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxyg...

Global Warming

...I believe that the international is the most important since it’s on such a huge scale the affects should be just as big. Recycling and using energy wisely are very easy and if everyone took these actions then the affects of global warming would be reducing massively. I think for these local responses to work the government should spend extensive money on promoting them – more so than they do already. If all these actions were put in place we would hopefully put the temperature back to where...

War Poetry

...Letter XV' The technique part of the poem, as it can be seen with these examples, is completely detached from the content, and varies between poets, rather than themes. I prefer the rhythm and consistency of Owen's poems and ? Beach Burial' to the style of ? Homecoming' or ? Letter XV'. I like the rhymes, as they tend to bring the poem together, they unify it. Obviously I agree with the message in all these poems, or I wouldn't have chosen the theme of war / anti-war poetry. All of the poems dep...

Athlete's Warehouse

...The business may not generate the amount of sales projected, thus not being able to incur a profit. Furthermore, pedestrian traffic may also not be up to par which could possibly lower the number of prospective customers. This would lead to lower sales than expected.

For example, his employee turnover could be higher than expected if the staff he trains is not satisfied working...

Trojan War

...The city of Troy was captured at last by treachery. A force of Greek warriors gained entrance to the city by hiding in the interior of a large wooden horse. Subsequently the Greeks sacked and burned the city. Only a few Trojans escaped, the most famous being Aeneas, who led the other survivors to what is present-day Italy; this story is told by Virgil in the Aeneid. The return of the Greek warriors to Greece inspired epic poems, the most celebrated being that of Odysseus, whose 10-year wandering...

Wednesday Wars

...Mai Thi is a Vietnamese student, and is there during the Vietnam War. While she has a small incident with the lunch lady, whose husband was killed, they make up and become very close. One more great touch that I must write about is how the author included some very important moment from the sixties, but he did it in an unbiased way. He talked about the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination, the Vietnam War, and President Johnson’s decision not to return back to office. While I was not alive in ...

Paulo Augusto, a 26-year-old Portuguese man, was held in custody after having apparently stalked her some 1,000 miles across Europe, eventually gaining access to her apartment by climbing through a neighbour's window. "She was so frightened and in shock that she let him in," a police spokesman said. Dirie apparently suffered minor injuries when her assailant threw her to the floor. The attacker then ...

Beer Wars

...Kallman learned that shelf space is yet another difficulty faced by the craft beer companies. If you’re most seen, you’re most bought and the Big Three knew this. Another difficulty faced is the temptation to sell out to the big companies. Over the years, Anheuser-Busch, Miller, and Coors all have been buying up the little companies as soon as they showed promise; all in order to try to get a bigger piece of the pie that is market share. If they couldn’t buy you, they would try to destroy ...

Anheuser Busch uses their deep pockets to get rid of competition from ...
