Britain, France and Soviet Union were great imperial powers, who all faced by the recurrent problems, nationalist movements among their people.1 World War One affected the political, economic, and social systems of Europe.2 The Treaty of Versailles had a very important influence on the Second World War, it was harsh, and economically impossible. In addition, it would be enough to upset the Germans, but not enough to restrain them powerless.3 There was another instability in Europe, the conflict within the eastern Europe; all of eastern Europe’s territories were changed, thus left many nations without a state of its own.4
There was continuity in German policy between the periods 1914 to...

THE PRESENCE of multiple objectives in a problem, in
principle, gives rise to a set of optimal solutions (largely
known as Pareto-optimal solutions), instead of a single optimal
solution. In the absence of any further information, one of these
Pareto-optimal solutions cannot be said to be better than the
other. This demands a user to find as many Pareto-optimal solutions
as possible. Classical optimization methods (including the
multicriterion decision-making methods) suggest converting the
multiobjective optimization problem to a single-objective optimization
problem by emphasizing one particular Pareto-optimal
solution at a time. When such a method is to be used for finding

Bypassing the free market becomes necessary during war simply because the free market is not perfect and may not respond adequately to wartime material demands. During WW2 immediately following Pearl Harbor the government imposed a system of rationing on needed commodities such as steel, brass, rubber and gasoline. The reason was twofold. First, the demands of the war required massive amounts of of these items to supply the war effort. The military had to have a regular supply base. The second reason is related. In a free market, the sharp rise in demand would push prices much higher,...

Causes of World War II
World War II resulted from a series of issues, many of which were caused by World War I (previously called “The Great War”). While the roots of World War I stemmed from the move towards nationalism during the late Nineteenth Century, the roots of WWII came from the way countries dealt with each other at the end of the Great War. This paper will discuss the causes of World War II.
A significant cause of the war was the treaty that ended it. The Treaty of Versailles was signed in 1919; it discussed the terms for the defeat of Germany. However, the treaty was both too strong and not strong enough. The treaty was too strong because it placed all blame for the...

KEY POINTS LEADING TO THE SPANISH EMPIRE’S DECLINE AND FALL IN THE SEVENTEETH CENTURY
The Spanish Empire of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries has a story of irresponsible, selfish and foolish policies. The major problems revolved around their failure to build their internal economy, the ever increasing unsolved debts, and dependence on colonial silver. These problems were aggravated by other world events that they could not control. The empire best period was called Spain’s Golden Age. This occurred approximately between 1516 and 16591, although...

Propaganda has proven to be a valuable tool when trying to persuade others during a war. It has proven to bring out the best qualities in a nation, and it has also shown the ability to voice the true feelings of the people. For example, propaganda has been used to increase patriotism in times of conflict in America, and it has also been used to dissuade others from wanting bloodshed. “Uncle Sam” is a large and well-known piece of propaganda in America, and it has been used with countless different mediums to display the true outlook of the citizens. James Montgomery Flagg was responsible for illustrating the classic "I Want YOU for U.S. Army" poster, and an anonymous...

Hiroshima and memory
During the final stage of World War II 1945, the United States conducted the atomic bombings of the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. Such events are the only use of nuclear weapons in the world. The atomic bombs were created by the Manhattan Project, which was a research and development program established by the United States with the United Kingdom and Canada that produced the first atomic bomb during World War II.
The United States called for a surrender of Japan in the Potsdam Declaration on 26 July 1945 by threatening Japan with “prompt and utter destruction”. However, such ultimatum was ignored by the Japanese government. Thus, two nuclear...

The Cold War: A Matter of Opinion
The Cold War was really a battle of wills, a power struggle, between the United States and the Soviet Union. No military contact ever ensued, but there was the constant fear of nuclear weapons. During World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union fought as allies against the Axis powers (History, 2013). However, that changed after the war when there was competition between the two nations. The Cold War was an event in history that is commonly taught in schools all around the country. I personally do not remember learning about it in school, although I am sure I did. I interviewed five...

America and the Great War
World War 1 was in the works for a long time in the European countries. Nationalism, Imperialism, and Militarism were the main factors that led to the Great War. There were so many alliances between 1879 and 1914 that there was no choice when an ally declared war. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife was a trigger for the declarations of war being set up for many years prior.

Prince Duplex, Sr. was one of nearly 300 men of African descent to enlist in the Connecticut militia during the Revolutionary War, and Oscar Marion, a slave on the South Carolina plantation of war hero General Francis Marion, fought side by side with his master, also serving as "personal assistant, bodyguard, sous-chef, bugler, courier, confidant, and oarsman."

Bob Dole was born on July 22, 1923 in Russell, Kansas, the son of Bina M. (née Talbott; 1904–1983) and Doran Ray Dole (1901–1975). Bob Dole's father, who had moved the family to Russell while Dole was still a toddler, earned money by running a small creamery. One of his father's customers was the father of future Senator Arlen Specter.  During the Great Depression, which severely impacted Kansas and its residents, the Dole family moved to the basement of their home and eventually rented out the upper floors to raise money. As a boy, Dole worked as a soda jerk in the local drug store.

Aviation Manufacturing Challenges Post World War II
The American aviation industry was in an uncertain era post World War II (WW2). Aircraft manufacturers were suffering large loses as the demand for planes dropped sharply and the market was flooded. This created more supply than demand. Manufactures expected government sales to decline and braced for it. They hinged their hopes on the need for commercial aviation transportation which never came to fruition (Bright, 1978). The resurgence for the industry came in the form of the jet engine. The Navy, being conservative and...

During the mid-20th century, political and military tensions arose between world powers – the United States and its allies versus the Soviet Union and theirs. The Soviet Union’s desire to build a communist regime was problematic for the United States who wanted to spread the idea of democracy. Upon his election into office in 1953, President Eisenhower’s leadership style was decisive to many Americans as this was the beginning of the early stages of the Cold War. Succeeding Eisenhower, President John F. Kennedy also had to uphold a high level of responsibility especially regarding Vietnam where communist China and Russia sought control.

United States of America: Dominating the World Military Powers
Since the beginning of time, the strength of the World Leaders is directly affected by the strength of its military. It is nearly impossible for a Nation to be a world “power house” without the strength of a dominating military force. This statement holds truth when you look at the United States military and how it has shaped the balance of the United States’ influence throughout the world. Although the United States military force has constantly changed over the years; it still remains as the driving force behind the machine known as the United States. America’s military force has always been a threat, and began to emerge...

During the Vietnam War the US Field Artillery had to change their tactics and weaponry to fight an unconventional war that they were not used to. This was also the first war that the United States had fought where the terrain helped the enemy greatly which helped the change come even faster.
The NVA did not have a line of troops but instead operated in smaller groups all around the units. They could mass together and attack from any direction. In order to combat this, the Army split areas of operation between divisions. The divisions than divided it between brigades, brigades to battalions, and battalions to companies. This affected the Artillery in many ways. They could not mass their...

A computer is a general-purpose device that can be programmed to carry out a set of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. Since a sequence of operations can be readily changed, the computer can solve more than one kind of problem.
Conventionally, a computer consists of at least one processing element, typically a central processing unit (CPU), and some form of memory. The processing element carries out arithmetic and logic operations, and a sequencing and control unit can change the order of operations in response to stored information. Peripheral devices allow information to be retrieved from an external source, and the result of operations saved and retrieved.

Although the Cold War started after the end of World War II, it was the Cuban Missile Crisis that brought the world to the brink of a nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union.

The Syrian Civil War has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Since 2011, protests and attacks have been a daily occurrence, and the regime of Bashar Al-Assad has done what it believed was necessary to stop rebel forces and end protests. As such, Assad has committed many questionable, at best, and criminal, at worst, actions against the civilians of Syria in an effort to stop the rebels. The indiscriminate warfare Assad has used against Syrian citizens is shown in multiple international doctrines as illegal, and is thus a war crime, which should be prosecuted.
