As for the next World War which came all too soon, it gave America the patriotism that was so long admired and the unity of thought on a national matter. Yet again, women in the war transformed their role in society, but this time even greater. However the economy did not fare so well, and suffered even more from Roosevelt's policies and massive tax implements affecting the the future decisions regarding the deficit and budget. To finish, Vietnam was an even greater disappointment to our nation. The riots and movements of the day regarding communism which was the enemy, and the open hate towards the soldiers from the media seriously hurt the war and the nations view of it.
Many people can attribute the alliances for advancing and growing the amount of countries into the war. Nationalism is something missing in this time period in America, but it was still a leading factor in everybody entering the war and advancing it in the way that it did. tensions in colonies that fed the greater powers with valuable resources crucially changed the way that they felt about each other and helped to start and escalate it. The Great War was brutal and was started by many factors that added a great deal of tensions all around the world.
Propaganda effects of World War I During the early 1900s a new era of warfare emerged as governments began to employ all economic, technological and psychological resources available to defeat their enemies. This concept of Total War altered the direction of humanity and governments understanding in their allocation of resources. This essay will examine the relationship between propaganda used during World War I, its effect on the masses and the absolutely essential need for the success of such campaigns in obtaining military victory. While leaflet propaganda used during the war will be the main focus, considerations will be given to other forms to illuminate the necessity of understanding and utilizing the tools of this very powerful weapon. During World War I, propaganda was widespread in most countries.
The effects of World War I were massive including the Treaty of Versailles and the enormous amount of human casualties as well as economic losses. During World War I, another revolution broke out in Russia, removing Russia from the war and transformed the Russian empire into the first Communist state. There were many causes of the Russian Revolution including the weakness of the Czar and World War I. Finally, there were many effects of the Russian Revolution, two of which included the establishment of a communist government as well as a new economic policy. World War I was a massive war that overwhelmed Europe and spread across the world.
World War I was a total war because it involved many nations, and was fought on multiple fronts where battles engulfed the European landscape and the population. Because of the scale of World War I, nations had to rally all of their resources and began to target civilian populations in order to successfully defeat enemy nations. The scale of the war and rallying of national resources led to a blurring of private and political spaces. Civilians were no longer indirect victims and passive sufferers, the war had made them active participants and targeted war aims. Many governments recognized the value and necessity of civilians as resources and military objectives.
Lands were destroyed through the war and lives were forever changes. For both the Austria-Hungarian Empire and the Trotta name the cost of war was far greater than anyone could have imagined; the cost of war was tradition, love, power, and a sense of pride for their beloved country, Austria-Hungary. As the narrator prepares to go to war, with "no time to lose," he begins to realize the role that tradition and his name meant to his young life. No longer did he care about his rich snobby friends but his "true" friends Joseph Branco the chestnut roaster and Manes Reisiger the fiaker. His relationship with these two men is his only link to the old way of life in the Austria-Hungarian society.
Total War in Relation to World War I and II [IMAGE]First of all, what is “Total War”? What do we mean by it and what answer do we expect from this question? Total War is the war that affects all of society- not just armed forces, and that uses all the resources available to be able to win it. It’s “the mobilization of the whole society and its resources for the war effort.” In most of the countries the first Total War was the First World War. World War One started a completely new generation of wars.
The United States and the Allies came out victorious once again but the cost of war greatly affected all the countries. Germany, Japan, and Italy now have more debts to pay and also lost much of their territory once again. The war took many lives and also ended up destroying many beautiful cities. World War II showed how not just the soldiers were affected in the war, but everyone in all the different countries were affected by the war. The fact that the result of World War II was affected by the weapons and artillery used throughout shows the importance of weapons and artillery.
Everyone knows the story of the starting gun, the assignation of Archduke Ferdinand, but now, you can know the rest.

Therefore, there is no doubt that World War I fulfilled all characteristics of a total war
