Firstly, Soviet and Western thinking were governed by different aims. While the Soviet aim was messianic, the West was content to defend “national interests.” Secondly, Russian military thinking is more holistic than Western military thinking. T

Rising to command of the French Revolutionary armies, he seized political power as first consul in 1799 and proclaimed himself emperor in 1804. By repeated victories over various European coalitions, he extended French rule over much of Europe. He was finally defeated in 1814-15.

To what extent is the title “Tzar Liberator” a true description of Alexander II? “I am not handing over the command in the good order I should have wished, and I am bequeathing you much worry and distress”[1] These were the words of Alexander’s father on his deathbed. The condition of the empire as it was handed down to Alexander II was pitiful; the autocratic system was flawed and neglected.

Why did Alexander Emancipate the Serfs and to whose benefit? Various debates over the reasons for the emancipation of the serfs have been put forward by historians. They include military, social, political, educational and economic reasons, and each has a strong case. It is not known precisely why Alexander emancipated the serfs, but the strong sense of duty he had towards the preservation of the state meant that, once he had decided that emancipation was necessary for the welfare of the autocra

Final Paper The expansion of Europe during the 19th century is said to be difficult to analyze and explain conevingly because it was unplanned and chaotic. Modern Europe was constructed in the nineteenth century. Moreover, most of the social, economic, and political forces unleashed from 1815 to 1914 are the same ones that shape our own time. Urbanization, mass entertainment, industrial capitalism, modern liberalism, socialism, and nationalism all developed in the 19th century. Following the Fi

Furthermore, it is difficult to argue that the events of 1905 were in fact an actual full-scale revolution.

To what extent was Alexander II a Tsar liberator? Alexander II did introduce a number of reforms, which were quite revolutionary for that period of time. Many historians therefore believe that Alexander II deserves the title ‘Tsar Liberator’. Views of Alexander II do, however, differ to a great extent, When regarding Alexander II Saunders says “his enthusiasm for change lasted a mere four years, it may be that his reputation as the ‘Tsar liberator’ is ill deserved“ 1this strongly suggests that A

Was there a crisis in Government in 1922? There had been problems for a long time in Italy most of the problems dating back to the unification in 1870. Since this unification which was never popular with everyone especially the Catholics the Italian government had struggled to form an effective parliamentary system. By the summer of 1922 there were so many problems with the system that it allowed Mussolini to become PM and establish the first ever type of Fascist government. There are many diff

In the peace settlement Germany was forced to accept sole responsibility for causing World War I. This was a totally justifiable demand on the part of the victorious powers. The Treaty of Versailles was enacted into history in June 1919 with Germany forced to accept sole responsibility for causing World War I. Since then there has been considerable debate concerning the war but even today historians still cannot fully agree upon the causes. Some support has been given to the theory that Germany

Napoleon’s family was Italian, but he later dropped the “u” in his name to make it appear more French. Napoleon was the second of eight children that reached adulthood. As a child, Napoleon was small and puny. His oversized head often threw him off balance and he had a terrible temper. At the age of 10, Napoleon was accepted at the military academy of Brienne, in northern Fr
