How important was the USA’s entry into the World War One to the outcome of the war?
The USA’s entry to the war was the final blow to the German Empire after fighting three years against Britain and France. It accelerated the progress of the war in 1918 and broke the stalemate. However, American was not the reason why German lost the war itself. Other factors, such as British blockade and two front war, were equally important with American’s entry to the war.
Agitated by the Zimmerman cable, sent from Germany to Mexico, American government found an excuse to enter the war and broke the isolationism, which was the idea that kept American away from the European affair. The American

Assess the impact of Napoleon on Europe
The Napoleonic Empire came into existence following the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte as Emperor of France at Notre Dame in 1804. The frontiers of the ancien regime had been expanded up to and beyond France’s natural borders, with the momentum of expansion following in direct correlation with the pace of France’s military conquests under the leadership of Bonaparte himself. The ‘Great Empire’ is often referred to as a single entity embracing French controlled Europe, but territories were in fact separated depending on the levels of French control. Territory ruled directly from Paris was known as the pays reunis which compromised of France’s

world’s oldest living civilization, with documented records dating back more than 5,000 years. (Freid, Gaynos, 2012). For most if it’s long history, China was an empire, ruled by its emperors, with the aid of a highly centralized government. The last dynasty to rule was the Qing or Manchu, which ruled from 1644 to 1912, when their control weakened, due to decreasing living conditions, massive social strife, economic stagnation, explosive population growth, lack of reform and Western influence.

Constantine Basilica in Trier is constructed from Roman bricks 15" square by 1½" thick. There is often little obvious difference (particularly when only fragments survive) between Roman bricks used for walls on the one hand, and tiles used for roofing or flooring on the other, so archaeologists sometimes prefer to employ the generic term ceramic building material (or CBM).
The Romans perfected brick-making during the first century of their empire and used it ubiquitously, in public and private construction alike. The Romans took their brickmaking skills everywhere they went, introducing the craft to the local populations. In the British Isles, the introduction of Roman brick by the

There was admiration for the fact that though poorly armed, the volunteers had held out for so long against the resources of an empire, apparently willing and able to deploy limitless numbers of well-equipped troops. There can be no doubt that the response of the British government to the Rising contributed measurably to the further alienation of Irish public opinion.

within the British empire, Asians who arrived in Kenya were given greater access to social, educational and capitalist opportunities by the colonials, as a result of higher 'racial' status(also Bennell 1982, p131).

American statesman, argued that the United States should develop defense capabilities to prevent further British exploitation. As colonies of the British Empire before gaining independence in 1783, the United States has been on both ends of mercantilist practices. Britain’s treatment of American colonies was much like any other colony - it controlled all trade in the colonies, ensuring that raw materials came from the colonies for manufacture in England, and that the manufactured products returned to the colonies for profit. In this way, the colonies served a dual purpose as supply of raw materials and then supply of market for products abroad. When, even after independence, Britain attempted

Undoubtedly, the West Indies Federation shared some commonalities with other contemporary federations particularly with regard to issues such as constitutional reform and overcoming nationalist interests. However, the West Indian experience was unique and distinct from all others mainly as a result of the geographical separateness of the territories by sea and the insularity of the territories, which historically related bi-laterally with England.

Maratha Empire. After the loss at the Third Battle of Panipat, the Maratha Empire disintegrated into several confederate states, and the resulting political instability and armed conflict severely affected economic life in several parts of the country, although this was compensated for to some extent by localised prosperity in the new provincial kingdoms. By the end of the eighteenth century, the British East India Company entered the Indian political theatre and established its dominance over other European powers. This marked a determinative shift in India's trade, and a less powerful impact on the rest of the economy.
