The Munich Agreement

In conclusion, collective security was the most effective response to aggression because more countries disagreed and were against Germany because it was threatening the peace of Europe. England, Britain, and America were against Germany acquiring land from Czechoslovakia while the Primer Minister Neville Chamberlain favored it in order to avoid war. Adolf Hitler used propaganda to maintain his po...

The Loudest Voice By Grace Paley

In my opinion, this is further proof of the city's indifference toward its Jewish citizens. No wonder that tree was "a stranger in Egypt" (page 4, last line). In conclusion, there is no doubt that the story "The Loudest Voice" contains rich, creative and though-provoking types of setting which help us to explore the world of Shirley, the narrator. By focusing on some examples of social and spatial...

A Poem Who’s for the Game

The poem is written so that the reader feels Jessie Pope is actually speaking to them, and therefore has an immediate effect. (As the poem was published in the Daily Mail, it would have been read by thousands of people). The tone of the poem is positive and seems like an idealistic adventure story, which is totally opposite to the realities of war. I feel that when men read this poem they would be...

Deeds of the Divine Augustus in History

Augustus did not evade the curatorship of grain in the height of the food shortage, which he arranged so that within a few days, he freed the entire city from the present fear and danger by his own expense and administration. When he consul for the eleventh time (23 BCE), twelve doles of grain, personally bought, were measured out. He gave HS 240 to the plebs who then received the public grain. An...

NSA Monitoring Program

Metadata is a cloud or “envelope that includes the duration of a phone call, the identity of the caller and the receiver; for an email it could include the location information, the sender and the recipient, time, and sometimes it’s content, the web browsing history of an user and in some case account passwords. This envelope can be used to create a detailed picture of an individual’s life. ...

European- African Relationship

Though they were not successful in ridding themselves of the Europeans until much later, the Africans put up a fight to get the White Man who oppressed them out of their land, after he charmed them with his false pretenses. Another supplemental document that may be used to analyze these two groups is an excerpt from the book “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe. This work of literature depicts...

First Chapter of Birdsong About Time Before War

The ‘red creeper’ on the house, the ‘dark red stone’ on Mme Azaire’s neck and the ‘blood-red skirt’ all symbolise and foreshadow the slaughter and massacre of thousands of innocent men and civilians later in the book. Death and loss is a prominent theme throughout the book, and Faulks manages to prepare the readers for the ominous strife by providing subtle images and metaphors of th...

A Farewell to Love and Abandonment of War

"Farewell to Arms is an excellent novel and a terrific read, this novel can take you on an adventure to different countries, arouse your senses, and it can even make you feel as if you’re one of the characters in the novel itself"(Young). It does not use the war as the main or central clutch to destroy or bring lots of sadness; it only brings it forward when a specific action is needed from it t...

Analysis of “Dulce et Decorum Est”

I also like the idea that Wilfred Owen didn’t give much away to what the poem was about, and left you thinking and wondering after reading the title. Although the rhyming in “Suicide in the Trenches” is more memorable, I like the fact that in “Dulce et Decorum Est”, you don’t really recognize the rhyme at first. But I do like the poem “Suicide in the Trenches”, but I felt it more e...

"Soldier’s Home" by Ernest Hemingway

Hemingway emphasizes this by giving this line its own paragraph. On top of that, the mother claims to know what goes on in a soldier’s mind by saying: “I know the temptations you must have been exposed to… I know what your own dear grandfather, my own father, told us about the Civil War…” on page 5 line 17-20. He cannot find comfort in a society based on the values of his mother and fath...

Distinctively Visual Images in a Play Shoe Horn Sonata

In conclusion, it becomes evident that John Misto has crafted a drama that has created distinctively visual images of the thematic concerns of the text using a variety of sound, lighting and visual techniques. In addition, Dawe’s effective use of language and structure all cleverly engage the reader and make the audience evaluate the theses of the negative aspects of war. Both texts has effecti...

A Poem The Man He Killed by Hardy

Hardy in “The Man He Killed” does a wonderful job exposing the insecurities of the man, without even stating them by using figurative language and literary elements. The repetition deduces hesitation, while other elements such as wordplay, and the use of dashes represents deep thought, and possibly regret lets the reader infer how the man is really feeling which is different from the words on...

The Roaring 20s

The 1920s is a time of prosperity and new hope, new businesses being created along with new jobs. New technology and pioneering the beginning of these new inventions made life in the 1920s much easier and interesting. The stock market also created opportunities for people to invest in companies and many people did become rich overnight. Therefore "The Roaring 20s" suits its time as a time of new e...

The 1920's and 1980's in America

In the early 1920's times were prosperous and people begin to look for a new form of entertainment. It was the commercial dawn of radio, and the continued popularity of the phonograph. Neither invention was new. Radio had been experimented with as early as 1896, and Marconi stations lined the coasts before the Great War. The 20s saw the demise of the wax cylinder recorder (Edison manufactured them...

Overview of Bob Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind

The song has a constant guitar strum in the background that has a slow upbeat tempo, but Dylan's voice does not always stay with the beat. This technique makes his powerful lyrics stand out more. Furthermore, the harmonica that plays after each verse compliments the sad, wondering feeling Dylan creates with his voice and he enunciates the strong words in each line that would help deliver his messa...

The causes of the break up of the Union

In conclusion, the Civil war occurred due to a combination of small events that, had they not occurred, so many lives could have been saved. The diversity between the North and the South really influenced the decision the South made to secede. They figured that they were so different from the rest of the country might as well be separated. Events such as the decision of the Dred Scott case and th...

Manifest Destiny: Was It Really Imperialism?

To conclude Manifest destiny, the American policy of acquiring certain choice territories, can be labeled as nothing more than aggressive imperialism for that is what it is. We wanted land and we got it just because we did. We trampled over Native Americans and Mexicans just to establish trade routes and to gain political power. In the end we extended our borders by about 66% through manifest des...

General Charles Cornwallis

Consequently, General Charles Cornwallis was somewhat a good leader, but made many hasty decisions which caused Britain to be crushed in the American Revolution. He may have won several battles, but he was defeated in the war. His carelessness in care for his troops, and his lack of awareness for his surroundings all caused his ruin. Even so, without Cornwallis, defeat may have come quicker and ha...

The Schlieffen Plan

This was a result of a series of cumulative events and factors. Ultimately, it was the German offensive in 1918 that was the event which lead to the end of the stalemate, as the German attacks and British counter-attacks broke the trench system, and for the last few week before the armistice, the war was again a war of movement. However, the German offensive would have never taken place if it were...

"Hiroshima" by John Hersey

Hersey's bleak yet graphic account of the Hiroshima bombing is a novel which can be read for generations and still capture the horror of war and the endurance of the Japanese people. Hiroshima encourages readers of today's western society as well as the readers in 1946 to respond to the text with feelings of sympathy, anger and remorse. Hersey employs techniques such as selection of detail, langua...

Book Review of Home Soil by Irene Zabytko

With his father by his side, crying in the garden, Bohdan tries to cleanse his regret. The only way out of one?s regret is to except it as a missed opportunity. Bohdan does this when he says, ?Tato, I didn?t know anything. You know, I just wanted to jump out from planes with my parachute. I just wanted to fly?.? As the story ends with that statement it is assumed that the father reveals his regret...

Labour Reforms

In conclusion, the post-war Labour Government provided a lot of support for the British people struggling after hard times. The Beveridge Report of 1942 helped guide them as to what problems to tackle. The National Health Service and National Insurance Act are still considered to be the most successful to this day. Others such as the New Towns Act and the nationalisation of key industries were les...

'Dulce Et Decorum Est' by Wilfred Owen

In the last stanza, Owen concludes his argument by suggesting that war is not glorious. Owen believes that war does not come from 'desperate glory' nor does it come from "Dulce et Decorum est pro patria mori" which means 'it is sweet and proper to die for your country', a lie which the elders had came up with. Owen's argument against War contradicts the title of this poem Dulce Et Decorum Est and ...

International Trade, Economics And Its Importance

Also, war and crisis has increased concerns for the physical supplies of oil, rather than the price. US oil dependency has risen sharply since 1990. Domestic production has been stable, while demand has risen by 15 per cent. In the short term this is not a problem as the US has been furiously stockpiling. Were there to be serious disruption to supplies – and hence a much higher oil price – a M...

Death and War Issues in Kipling’s The Bridegroom

In the end, we can feel the young man has a greater acceptance of his state as he begins using the pronoun “us” to qualify himself and death. The marriage, having been consummated, as previously stated, they are now one. Immortality is an evocative word, which fits perfectly into the general theme. The soldier is now immortal, fixed in time with his memories and never able to make new ones. Th...

Belfast Confetti by Ciaran Carson

The overall message of the poem is to educate the readers of what it was like to be involved in a bombing. I also believe that the poem is trying to portray a message of invasion. His hometown was getting destroyed in front of him and the only way he believed he could teach people about this was through poetry. The fact that he chose to express his emotions through poetry is a really interesting w...

Military Spending

History shows that countries can reduce spendings quickly if they so desire. In the United states, military spendings declined by 74 percent in the first year after World War II and 23 percent in the first two years after the Korean War ended. Today’s slow decline in spending on obsolete systems arises not because of the increasing threat of war but because there are weak budgetary and virtually...

Crosby Vs Deming

The only differences with their process were the recognition of participation, zero defects and use of slogans and posters. With regards with recognition of participation, Deming does no want the idea because of pride while for Crosby it was good because it can boosts individual to work hard. The Zero defects idea was of Crosby, he wanted to have almost perfect work. For the slogans and posters, D...

A Poem Dulce Et Decorum Est Analysis

By employing the literary devices of punctuation and charged words, Owen gives the reader an envisionment of the group of men and the tolls of war. Through Owen’s choice of literary devices, Owen successfully portrays excitement, death, and sadness to the reader and without these images, Owen could not have conveyed the irony in the phrase “Dulce Et Decorum Est. ” The portraits of the soldie...

The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

The story goes into detail explaining how things were done, like the men would draw lots to see who will wire a Viet Cong tunnel with explosives. Having a man just walking back from peeing being shot and killed is completely unexpected and gruesome but it’s a reality that comes with war. Men in war use what they can to escape the reality of what going on around them, they carry things with them ...

Napoleon Exiled to Elba


The Philippine Revolution Against Spain

Except for the Battle of Manila Bay, the United States was not a major force in the fighting. The American troops did not arrive in the country until late June, and they saw no military action until August. But events starting with the Spanish surrender of Manila on August 13, 1898, doomed the end of Philippine independence. Although the Spanish troops had been routed in all fronts by the Filipin...

The Berbice Slave Rebellion

Cuffy, was an African-born slave from the Akan tribe and lived in the former Dutch colony of Berbice in present-day Guyana. In 1763 led a revolt of more than 2,500 slaves. They held most of Berbice for ten months, but tribal, status and leadership divisions among the black rebels (particularly seen when Akara deserted Cuffy for the extremist leadership of Atta) and attacks by Dutch forces, led to ...

Geneva Conventions

For Magen David Adom there was a nice alternative – the Red Crystal, so they should’ve just displayed it in the context of international conflict to have all protection needed. All three emblems are appointed the same legal status, which means they are totally equal. Emblems can have a protective use, as well as an indicative use. Medical and religious personnel may mark themselves, their vehi...

Anthem for Doomed Youth and Dulce Et Decorum Est

Dulce and Anthem both portray the horrors of war by using different styles, whereas Peace looks at war in a different way from which people can benefit. Dulce and Anthem use different styles in portraying the horrors of war. I think that Dulce is more effective and dramatic because it shows the death of an innocent soldier, who was suffering to save others. The personal feel that is created in Dul...

"Enders Game" by Orson Scott Card

Throughout the novel Orson Scott Card blurs the thin line between appearance and reality, through the concept of “games”. At times it is quite difficult to grasp your appearances verses your realities because you get too caught up in the little things that you forget to stop and look at the bigger picture. Only if you look at your life from a neutral perspective will you be able to tell what i...

The Village by Bing West

The Marines tried to win the hearts and minds of the local villagers and succeeded. This reminded me a lot of what we did in Iraq and are doing in Afghanista . Working with the people trying to protect them and train them, establish a democracy. The book portrays the sacrifice and brotherhood that is formed amongst the people in a time of war. What I liked the most was the way Bing West wrote the...

Undying Message

Going back decades ago, we were under the martial law led by Ferdinand Marcos, the archenemy of Ninoy. Everybody before looked upon Ninoy for he was the only political actor that readily questioned Marcos and therefore took the hearts of the people. And with his death, the people’s cry for democracy was only empowered to the point that everybody was swayed by his ill fate. Scores of students, te...

Spanish: Philippine Revolution and Spain

The peace under the Pact of Piak-Na-Bato did not last long due to mistrust between rebels and Spanish government. The Filipinos were suspicious of the Spaniards and did not surrender all their weapons. the Spaniards also failed to fulfill their promises. the Spanish Authorities resumed arresting rebels and their sympahtizers. Soon fighting between Spanish and Filipino forces erupted in various par...
