The Battle Of The Bulge

10 pages in length. Quickly losing ground and heading for defeat, Hitler realized that he had to come up with a military attack that would impede the Allied progress; as such, the Battle of the Bulge was waged with overwhelming fervor. This, the last major offensive by the German Army, was devised as a counterattack against the Allied invasion in Belgium’s Ardennes region. While there may have been little else for Hitler to construct due to America’s successful military infiltration, the Battle of the Bulge proved to render Germany even more vulnerable than before the all-out attack. The United States perspective of the Battle of the Bulge clearly recognized the desperation that compelled Hitler’s actions; it would be only a matter of time before his plan backfired. Indeed, American troops suffered losses, but the final outcome proved to ultimately sustain United States military interests. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Fascism According to Eugene Weber

A 5 page paper that simplistically discusses fascism as experienced in Germany and France, according to Eugene Weber in his book titled “Varieties of Fascism.” In many ways both of the types of fascism were very similar in that they controlled the people to a degree where the country itself suffered great damage, as did the individual citizens who were of no great political influence as to benefit the leader in question. The main difference between the styles of fascism experienced by these countries was the concern involving racism as presented by Hitler in fascist Germany. No additional sources cited.

Impact of the Great War on Western Literature

A 4 page essay that discusses the impact of the “Great War,” that is, World War I on Western literature. World War I is known for its “mindless squandering of human life with negligible results” (Hull 17). During its era, it was known as the Great War, the war to end all wars, as well as the war that would make the world “safe” for democracy. The Great War accomplished none of these purposes and, when it was over, the survivors were gripped by grief, guilt, rage and, in the case of one German lance corporal, a young man named Adolf Hitler, by the desire for revenge (Hull 17). The Great War had another significant effect in that it had a tremendous impact on the course of modern Western literature. The collective consciousness of both Europe and America was forever changed by World War I and this change was reflected in the literature produced both during the Great War and in the decades afterward.

Evaluation of Gordon’s “Death in the Venetian Quarter: A Medieval Mystery” in Regards to its Historical Context and Connection to the Crusades

This is a 5 page analysis of Gordon’s “Death in the Venetian Quarter: A Medieval Mystery” and additional comments on its historical context. Alan Gordon’s “Death in the Venetian Quarter: A Medieval Mystery” (2002) successfully combines elements of fact and fiction when unraveling a mystery during the end of the Fourth Crusade in 1203 in Constantinople. The historical accuracies of the novel are general in a broad sense with some variations as to the relationship of the Emperor and his family but overall the historical context only adds to the excitement of the work. A unique aspect of the work is his use of Feste the Fool as the central character. In Gordon’s version of history, court fools are part of an elite intellectual society which because of their positions are able to overhear conversations, due to the fact that most of the population disregard them, and makes them privy to information which prove helpful in their investigations. Once the reader accepts this premise, which has already been introduced by Gordon in two previous novels, the book becomes enjoyable in regards to the historical descriptions of the city and in Feste’s solving of the murder of Bastiani the silk merchant.
