The Outbreak Of The Cold War

- The statement that the outbreak of the Cold War was primarily the result of US expansionism is a statement that I disagree with quite strongly. I believe that the primary causes for the outbreak of the cold war were rather the desire of the Soviet Union to expand its territory and spread its influence and the heightened security concerns of the Soviet Union and the oppressive nature of the Soviet style of government which the United States was morally opposed to. I also believe that the actions that may be perceived as examples of US expansionism are merely reactions to the expansionism of the Soviet Union and its various abuses against people who tried to be free to determine the future of...   [tags: Cold War, World War II, Soviet Union]

Reasons For The Outbreak Of The Civil War

- Various reasons have led to the outbreak of the Civil War. The first one is the slavery.

The debate has intensified after the Mexican-American War when deciding whether the slavery should be allowed in this new territory (Corbett, et al, 429). To avoid further conflict, the Congress established the principle of popular sovereignty to let people in the new territories to decide this issue....   [tags: American Civil War, United States]

The Outbreak Of The Civil War

- Abstract The outbreak of the Civil War forever changed the American nation. The war began as a struggle to save the constitution, not a struggle to free the slaves, but many in the North and South felt that the conflict would ultimately decide both issues. The Union Army had over 179,000 African American men serving, as well as in the Navy and in support positions. This number compromised both northern free African Americans and runaway slaves who enlisted to fight. African Americans fought in the Civil War, serving on both Union and Confederate sides....   [tags: American Civil War, Slavery in the United States]

The Outbreak of War in 1914

- The Outbreak of War in 1914 This question is one of much controversy; many historians would argue it was down to Germany and the ways the Kaiser ruled. But others may say that it was due to the actions of the Black Hand Group. In this essay I intend to look at all the points and eventually come to a verdict on who was to blame for the outbreak of war in 1914. Maybe one country alone is not entirely responsible for the outbreak. One of the causes of war was the alliance system.
