Factories were bombed so the production of munitions and living supplies was greatly reduced. The railway was also destroyed affecting trade and transport. This made the movement of supplies across Britain a lot harder. Another reason was to break the morale of the British people. By destroying their homes, ruining their lives and separating their families.
At that time the bombers completely flattened the city; in the process they bombed 21 factories and 9 were temporarily closed. The bombing of areas like East Anglia was partially done to destroy working airbases such as RAF Coltish all. After learning such examples as Bombing of economic centers such as London and Westminster we can see that it caused problems for the big banks and therefore caused additional economic disruption. Also after looking at the general upset of the economy through the destruction of shops, houses, factories etc we can see that this happened as Germans knew that this would cripple the economy of the country: shops, businesses, offices are destroyed which means jobs are lost, people are paid less then they were before, wages which can in turn put other businesses out of business because of their prices because people couldn't afford to buy things. By looking at these facts we understand that this was planed by the Germans to achieve their plans and they were very successful in the bombing of the Great Britain: The scale of devastation in civilian areas was totally unexpected and that brought the people of Great Britain fear.
As soon as their airstrike got started, the firebombs were dashed into the industrial zo... ... middle of paper ... ...all the time the hot wind of the firestorm threw people back into the burning houses they were trying to escape from” (Metzger). People tried to escape from the fire, unfortunately, the strong heated wind pull them back to the burning places. Depressingly, there were between 35,000 to 135,000 people killed. (Hickman). Although the bombing of Dresden created Hitler surrender and end the World War II in Europe, these has been controversy upon Britain and America’s decision of using firebombs among the public.
The Germans were also bombing major cities to cause damage to areas vital to war effort. These included the industrial areas, ports, shipbuilding areas etc. The London docklands and other areas were bombed destroying weapons so the British could not fight back. They now could not import any weapons or goods, so now people were widely affected due to less food and rations. Shipbuilding areas and naval bases like Plymouth, Glasgow, Liverpool and Birkenhead were bombed destroying ships so the British could not retaliate.
Adolf Hitler was responsible for one of the biggest atrocities in human history; this widespread death and violence would not have been possible without his talent for spreading propaganda and earning the trust of the German people. Germany had failed in World War I and the upstart Nazi party blamed their defeat on the Jews, in which they falsely viewed them as power-hungry and destructive. Adolph Hitler, dominant leader of the Nazis, utilized propaganda, such as speeches, newspapers, radios, posters, and the cinema, in order to gain support for the extermination of the Jewish community in Germany. Hitler gained support for Jewish expulsion through propaganda that promoted himself to the public, as he vilified non-Aryans, spread deceptive lies in the mass-media, and linked hatred of Jews to German patriotism. Hitler often created a vilified image of the non-Aryan race by blaming them for Germany’s struggles and insisting on their inferior presence.
Causes of the Holocaust The Holocaust took place for a number of reasons some of which were long term and others short term. The main reasons are; for centuries Germany had been an anti-Semitic country Jews were used as scapegoats for German problems. Also centuries of Nazi persecution caused the Holocaust in particular 1933 -1939 as well as Adolf Hitler and his racist views which influenced thousands of Germans. The Main reason for the holocaust happening was that Germany had been anti-Semitic for many centuries, and during those centuries the anti-Semitism had gradually got worse. Therefore because this was becoming a racial war, this was an opportunity for Germany to 'cleanse' itself of Jews like it should have done centuries ago.
Innocent people are being killed accidentally with chemical weapons, whether it is poor storage or bad transportation. The fact is that chemical weapons need to be destroyed, through very careful means. The production and use of chemical weapons is ethically wrong based on the devastating effects they have on the entire world. The weapons are something that is very difficult to get rid of, and we need to develop better ways to protect ourselves against their use and disposal. Chemical weapons have been used throughout the world dating back to 430 BC, when they were used against the Spartans in the Peloponnesian War.
====================================================================== They also knew that Britain would do its level best to keep them away from their colonies so as to maintain their empire. So Germany tried to frighten Britain and desperately changed their tactics to create fear and panic among people. ===================================================================== They attacked the docks in London so as to stop supplies of food being brought into Britain. They started bombing its main towns and cities. The most affected towns by German bombing were Coventry, Glasgow, and East end.
The Blitz inevitably tried to break morale, destroyed industries and ruined everyday lives of civilians; this caused the government to take control of information and media. The bombings also forced people to change their ways to manage the Blitz. The biggest effect of the Blitz was the damage caused to the highly populated and highly industrial areas of Britain. Key locations such as the East End, Coventry and the Docklands were the primary targets of Hitler as by aiming and destroying these areas would lead to a great decrease in the morale of the British population. However the British survived the Blitz but at a large loss of life as in Coventry 4,000 people were killed and a third of the city was in ruins, leaving the spirit of the British at risk.
The atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki was villainous and inhuman due to the fact that it massacred the lives of thousands and that the Japanese were ready to admit to defeat to the United States. Some argue that it was a game changer for the United States and that it ended World War II, in truth; it actually was an uncalled for, unjustifiable measure taken to ensure the surrender of the Japanese, which was already clear.
