THE CAUSES OF WW2
The date of September 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, is remembered as the date the war started. But little is remembered about the date Russia also moved into Poland, on September 16,1939. The nation of Poland was now divided between these two war-time allies.
It is interesting to notice what the responses of the major allied nations were to these two dates. When Germany entered the western portion of Poland, Britain and France declared war on Germany. But when Russi...
An essay is usually a short piece of writing which is quite often written from an author's personal point of view. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. The definition of an essay is vague, overlapping with those of an article and a short story. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexan...

Battle Royal: First Reading Response
In the short story Battle Royal by Ralph Ellison, the narrator was struggling to overcome racism.
On his grandfather’s deathbed, he could not forget the words he told his father, “Son, after I'm gone I

World War II, or the Second World War (often abbreviated WWII or WW2), was a global military conflict between 1939 and 1945, which involved most of the world's nations, including all great powers, organised into two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, with more than 100 million military personnel mobilised.

- The Great Depression
The Great Depression was one of the bleakest times in United States history, both economically and socially. Lasting from 1929, it lasted up to the early 1940’s. There were many different factors that led to this dark era in American history. Although mostly related to a great stock market crash in 1929, there were other major changes that helped to fuel this dark period.
One of the contributors to the Great Depression was the stock market crash in October of 1929. In the span of ...

- The War that Made America
Fred Anderson writes about the French and Indian war in a narrative style with a neutral tone. Because Anderson has a neutral tone he does not really convey a specific mood in writing the accounts of battles and descriptions which took place during this war. In very few parts of the book Anderson emphasizes some detail in certain battles which grasps the attention of the reader a little more than other parts. He provided brief background information which readers would have otherwise never heard...

Bay Of Pigs
B A Y O F P I G S The story of the failed invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs, which is located on the south coast of Cuba about 97 miles southeast of Havanna, was one of mismanagement, poor judgment, and stupidity ("Bay of Pigs" 378). The blame for the failed invasion falls directly on the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) and a young president by the name of John F. Kennedy. The whole intention of the invasion was to assault communist Cuba and put an end to Fidel Castro....
