World History Homework Eleven Answers - Student Three
1. What was the "Great War," and why was it called that? Who was on each side?
Britain, France, Russia, Italy, Japan and the United States were the Allies. Austria-Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria and the Ottoman empire where the Central Powers. World War 1 was called the "great war" because it involved many of the worlds nations and it was the first war with modern technology.
- Excellent. Note that Italy switched sides during the war.
2. Who won World War I? Explain the outcome.
Nobody really won the war, but you could say the allies came out with less debts to pay. It ended the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Germany had to limit the size of their army and had to pay $33 billion and lost its colonies.
- Good analysis.
3. Pick your favorite battle of the War and describe it.
I like the battle of Argonne because of The Lost Battalion. It was the largest entanglement in the war, with 26,000 dead and 100,000 wounded.
- Good, could describe it a bit more.
4. When, where, why, and by whom did the Communist Revolution occur?
It occurred in 1917 in Russia. Poor economic conditions and oppression by Czars contributed to the unrest. It was led by Stalin and Trotsky.
- Good, except that Lenin should be mentioned as one of the original leaders. (Minus 1)
5. Pick an aspect of "Science and Art in the Early 20th Century" and describe it, along with your view.
I think the mass production of cars was an important advance because it was a easy means of transportation that doesn't require feed/fuel when not in use.
- Good insight.
6.SUB H4. Discuss any aspect of the lecture, such as the type of warfare used in World War I.
M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle wasn't used much because there was fear of it being stolen by the Central Powers. The M1917 Browning machine gun and Lewis Gun were larger guns that needed to be shot from a mount. The Chauchat was a french piece of junk (no two guns were the same). The M1903 Springfield rifle was used a lot.
- Excellent, may use as a model.
7. SUB H1. Concerning "work", which do you prefer, the motto of Captain John Smith or of Leon Trotsky?
John Smith's "Don't Work, Don't Eat". It inspires greatness in people rather than suppression.
- Superb point.
- Well done! 69/70.--Andy Schlafly 22:44, 25 April 2009 (EDT)
