Essay1.216 Words / ~2 pages Schools, Shrewsbury How effective was Richard IIIs response to the problems he faced during his reign? Richard III was frequently met with problems throughout his reign, which comes as a given for a usurper, and in this essay I will discuss the effectiveness of Richard’s responses to these problems. Although Richard faced numerous challenges, the biggest ones were: poor relations with nobles; low finances and opposition. I think that Richard’s responses to these problems were sensible majority of the time, but in order to secure his position on the throne he had to address the problems with nobility and opposition more than he did. According to some accounts Richard spent most of his time dealing with financial troubles and that meant that he did not focus enough on other challenges. Richard dethroned (and most likely murdered) his nephews who were…[show more]

As the Soviet Union started to get more and more advanced, the german civilians were unprotected.

The Nazi government assured the civilians that they would win the war and that they would be safe. When the soviet army reached east prussia on the 12 January 1945 many civilians were completely unprepared. By the 23 January the soviet army completely disconnected east prussia and thousands of refugees tried to flee. The winter came early and it was unusually cold.

Essay3.460 Words / ~9 pages Universidade de São Paulo 2 INTRODUÇÃO À IDADE MÉDIA ESCANDINAVA Ao se falar sobre a Escandinávia, tanto quanto ao se tratar da Idade Média, uma série de estereótipos surgem à vista, os quais será preciso, antes de tudo, afastar. Não é nossa pretensão, considerando-­se as dimensões desta dissertação, comentar de forma profunda a história do norte europeu. Intentamos, no entanto, discutir sobre as idiossincrasi­as de mitos e contos de origem escandinava, e, para isso, teremos que ingressar num labirinto temporal que nos levará aos primeiros séculos da nossa era. Os antigos habitantes do norte tornaram-se mais conhecidos do Império Romano antes do século I a.C., quando grupos nômades que um dia teriam partido da Escandinávia passaram a atacar, de modo cada vez mais sistemático, as colônias de domínio romano na região da Gália. Dois textos da época serviram…[show more]
Essay2.394 Words / ~4 pages University of London How did Hitler gain and consolidate power in Nazi Germany On September 1st 1939 Nazi Germany invaded Poland, this was the first invasion in world war two and was the catalysis for the Allied nations to begin their defence of Europe leading to a six-year war that ended in their favour. However, we can look at Germany as a country that was under such heavy Nazi influence they had no choice but to go along with Adolf Hitler’s plans of war, prejudice and horror due to Hitler’s profound ability in propaganda and public talks they were eased into a sense of righteousness­, superiority and devotion to Hitler and his party. After World War One, the treaty of Versailles called for Germany to pay reparations to the allied nations, leaving Germany in a state of hyperinflatio­n from mid-1922 to late 1923 with prices increasing as much as 700% causing…[show more]

(20) Yes, it is quite accurate to say that English industry and trade went through a major change during 1551 to 1558. During this period, Wool and Cloth trade industries had significant changes to their production, the role of London in the world trade changed significantly­. Finally, due to increase in the amount of explorations that were carried out by English merchants and explorers, the amount of trade increased significantly­. On the one hand, it is possible to say that there have been significant changes to English industry and trade during 1551-1588. The first argument for that is the fact that the role of London has changed significantly during this period. Its significance as a domestic and foreign trading centre…[show more]

Essay1.392 Words / ~ pages Europaschule Köln and Köln Rivalries Introduction 1 The Great War, 1914 – 1918, was one of the world’s worst nightmares, causing the death of more than 10,000,000 people, both civilian and military. The events leading to this catastrophe were diverse and involved several of the world’s most powerful countries. In the course of the Great War and in the years preceding its outbreak, certain beliefs such as militarism and patriotism as well as imperialism and alliances seemed to have had an influence on the outbreak of World War I, which raises the question what the trigger of this cataclysmic event really was. 2.1 As early as 1879, GermanyandAus­tria-­Hung­aryagreed to form a Dual Alliance with the purpose of cooperating with regard to expanding their territories without conflict of interest1.

Essay1.392 Words / ~ pages Penn Foster College The Portrayal of Hispanic Americans in the Media With over 53 Million people, Hispanic Americans are with more than 17% the biggest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States of America (Stepler and Brown). By 2050 the Hispanic component is expected to grow by 167% (Negrón-Munta­ner, The Latino Media Gap). Despite the thriving growth of the Hispanic population, Latinos tend to be underrepresen­ted in American media and their voices are lacking on television and screen. Like many other ethnic minority groups, Hispanics have always been portrayed negatively in the media; even though images of other minority groups began to change in the 1990s, Hispanics are still depicted as illegal immigrants, criminals, or unskilled laborers in the American news, TV shows and film. Although Hispanics are the biggest ethnic minority…[show more]
Essay2.160 Words / ~3 pages Goethegymnasium Kassel 4 SUPPORT AND OPPOSITION ANALYSIS (1): HOW EXTENSIVE WAS THE SUPPORT FOR HITLER AND NAZISM? Support can be either active or tacit, positive or negative. It can mean direct commitment through personal conviction or, alternatively­, the absence of opposition through fear of the consequences. Both types existed in Nazi Germany. The main reason for positive support was the personal popularity of Hitler. To many he was a direct successor to the populist vision of the Kaiser during the Second Reich. There had been no equivalent during the Weimar Republic, with the possible exception of Hindenburg. Hitler therefore filled a gap and greatly extended the leadership cult. His appeal also had a chameleon nature: he offered something different to each class and yet pulled them all together with the uniqueness of his own vision for the future.…[show more]

Essay2.201 Words / ~3 pages Goethegymnasium Kassel WHY DID HITLER COME TO POWER IN 1933? Hitler was appointed Chancellor by President Hindenburg on 30 January 1933. He was the leader of the largest party in the Reichstag and also had the support of much of the conservative right who had dominated Germany politically since 1929. The explanation as to why this happened can be advanced in three stages. First, Nazism was fortunate in that the Weimar Republic (formed in 1919 and ended in 1933) had become a flawed structure which contained a destabilised and increasingly volatile population. Second, Nazism emerged as a dynamic movement which was capable of gaining support from a substantial part of the disillusioned electorate. And third, the conservative right provided a channel which enabled the new dynamic to penetrate and force open the flawed structure. The rise of Hitler depended…[show more]

Essay1.005 Words / ~ pages dbs doha Assess the value of the source for revealing how the black codes affected the lives of the black Americans Source B is immensely valuable for revealing how the black codes affected the lives of the black Americans.
