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.

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.

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.
