What was the aftermath of world war I?
The fighting in World War I which ended when an armistice took effect on November 11, 1918. In the aftermath of World War I the political, cultural, and social order of the world was drastically changed in many places, even outside the areas directly involved in the war. New countries were formed, old ones were abolished, international organizations were established, and many new and old ideas took a firm hold in people's minds. It is estimated that 750,000 civilians had lost their lives during the war, and more died from starvation afterwards.

WW2 and the Cold War There were certainly other contributing factors, but yes, you could say that the situation at the end of World War II led to the Cold War situation in Europe and Southeast Asia. There were many reasons for the cold war and a lot this had to do with relations between the USA an…d the USSR (Russia). Russia wanted to spread communism through Eastern Europe to create a buffer zone to protect them from any future German invasions, (27 million people died in Russia during ww2) however USA wanted to prevent the spread. Also another reason was the fact that America had dropped the first Atomic Bomb and wouldn't let USSR in on the secret. I hope that helps you a little... (MORE)
The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were added to the Constitution. . 13th Amendment 1865: Slavery abolished . 14th Amendment: "Equal Protection under law" . Also called "Civil Rights Amendment" . 15th Amendment: Allowed blacks to vote . Republicans become the majority party. Their agenda was: … . Morill Tariff . Homestead Act . Transcontinental Railroad . National Banking Act 1864: Puts us on the path to a national currency . Morill Act: FIrst federal intrusion on public education where land grants were given for agricultural education . Economic Effects . Accelerated industrialization, and a new industrial class became dominant as planter aristocracy is destroyed. . The South loses billions . Innovations: Packaged and canned foods . Mass product of clothes and generic sizing (S, M, L, XL). Transportation advances: Railroads . Effects on English Grammar After the Civil War ended, the correct usage became "The United States is..." rather than "The United States are..." as had been the common way of speaking of this country prior to the Civil War. It cemented the fact that this was a single country, instead of a collection of independent states. (MORE)
Answer . Sanctions reduced Iraq- The nation in the forefront of Middle Eastern secularism, which sported the finest schools, universities, hospitals and infrastructure and reduced it to rubble. This led the once popularist dictator into a frenzy, and with no money flowing into the nation the scho…ols, hospitals and infrastructure wasn't rebuilt, the nation starved, got dumber and cancer rates from 'depleted' uranium went through the roof- now with no jobs in the country, because theres no money to pay with you might as well join the army/republican guard/Baath party and tow the party line because that was really the only profitable thing to do in Iraq between then and now. A nation that hated America was now developed, the USAF mastered its bombing techniques it learned from Cologne, Hanoi, Nuremberg flattened the entire place and convinced the media that 'smart' bombs were the arsenal of the future, it was funny how surprised the American public was to see resistance in Iraq, considering they did destroy most of the dams, water supplies, destroyed sewage facilities in order to spread disease, destroyed hospitals, schools, oil wells in order to destabilize the country, and the least they could've done was overthrow Saddam while they were there, instead of not providing them with the money to rebuild in the hope that this would drive the Iraqi people into rebellion. Guess what, you need money to buy weapons in a dictatorship, no money = no weapons = no resistance. The list continues, that war has a lot of sh*t that went down in it, and let me tell you in 20 years time, when this will all be declassified you will find a lot of inconsistencies with the conflict, whatever you do don't sit there shaking your head saying 'conspiracy theorist' or 'liberal' or 'lefties', because the same people were shaking their heads in Vietnam calling those who questioned the actions of the US government the same thing, and look at what were continuing to find out to this day (eg gulf of tonkin). The greatest implication of the Gulf War in today's context was the Gulf War 2, and don't you dare hail it as a success, 11,000 civilians dead, 45,000 Iraqi soldiers died defending their country from an illegal invasion is not the price to pay to overthrow a regime, starving millions and killing hundreds of thousands over a ten year period was a worse one. The implications of the Gulf War were detrimental for world peace and like Vietnam we will suffer from it for the next 25-30 years, it really brought to light what the US government was prepared to do to lower the price of the black gold. Answer . Wow.. Crosley left this little bit out of his emotional tirade, so I thought I'd share it:. The people of Kuwait are enjoying freedom once again after being liberated by a UN sanctioned international coalition from an illegal invasion. (MORE)
Why did Americans hold Isolationist views in the aftermath of World War 1 and hold to them during the first years of the World War 2?
Answer . Because the war was 'over there' - it was a European problem and you have to remember that in the US was grappling with the Great Depression so to a certain extent, many felt the US had enough to worry about..

Germany faced many problems after WWI, the defeat of the war and the economic problems following the war. When Hilter came into power he wanted to have an aryans power that would eventually rule the world, for this he blamed the Jews and others. With all the problems in Germany many Germans were rea…dy to support him. After the defeat of Germany the Treaty of Versailles was set in place restricting Germany's military in an attempt to prevent a further war. Additionally much of Germany's land was lost to foreign countries. Further more Germany was made to pay for all the damages caused as a result of the war causing anger, frustration, poverty and crime a mist Germany due to the poverty. This anger caused riots and a shift towards right wing thinking as well as the Nazis. Hitler aimed to rebuild and expand Germany and as a result world war two... In other countries after the war many were left homeless with their homes and land destroyed with bills of their own to pay as well. One must never forget the countless families devastated and alone as a result of the war through ones sacrifices in war. The land was scared and new world was made out of those destroyed. Effectively with world war two being a result of all this the very world today was shaped by all this. (MORE)
Answer . Italy did not suffer near so much as the other losing powers in WWII. Perhaps this was because Italy had changed sides in 1943 and many of her men had fought against the Germans.. Nonetheless Italy did suffer quite a lot.. The Italian colonial empire was stripped away - every last acre…. . The country had seen much hard fighting up and down the peninsula and the destruction of towns and cities was horrific. The nation was financially ruined. . The armed forces were decimated, not so much with casualties but loss of equipment. For example, the once proud navy of Italy was essentially nonexistent by wars end. . Small territories to the northeast were taken away from Italy and given to Slavs to govern. . On the positive side, Italy was allowed free elections (which oddly, produced a strong showing by communists, gathering about 25% of the vote). Italy remained unified. The nation was not occupied by the Soviets such as were various other loosing nations....and thus the country was not enslaved, raped, pillaged and looted. Italy was allowed to rejoin the family of nations rather quickly - NATO, Common Market (now the EU), United Nations, etc. (MORE)

A significant number of Jews were murdered very soon after the Holocaust. In Poland. for example there was a horrific pogrom at Kielce on 4 July 1946 which resulted in the death of 37 Jews who had survived the Holocaust.. The Kielce pogrom had all the classic features of a medieval or Tsarist pog…rom. It began with a 'blood libel' (yes, a blood libel in 1946 against Holocaust survivors). The mob got into such a frenzy that it even stopped trains passing through the railway station at Kielce and searched them for Jews. A number of Jews were dragged from the trains and two were murdered.. As if all this were not bad enough, some Polish bishops refused to condemn the pogrom. Others, while condemning the murders, refused to condemn the blood libel. In the Wikipedia article on the pogrom, Cadinal Wyszynski is reported as having said:. "that the popular hatred of Jews was caused by Jewish support for Communism, which had also been the reason why "the Germans murdered the Jewish nation". WyszyÅski also gave some credence to blood libel rumours commenting that the question of the use of Christian blood was never completely clarified ". Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kielce_pogrom. There were other pogroms and murders of Jew in Poland in 1945-46.. Eugen Kogon, in Der SS-Staat (first published in 1947) gives a figure of 600 Holocaust survivors murdered in Poland in 1945-46.. In Poland, it has been customary to blame all this on Soviet agents seeking to bring Poland into disrepute, but there is no sound evidence of Soviet involvement. (MORE)
What were the causes of the Cold War and how did it disrupt the attempts to establish peace in the aftermath of World War 2?
Cold War . The Cold War began as World War II was ending. American leaders saw the power and ambitions of the Soviet Union as a threat to our national security. The Cold War was a war of words and ideologies rather than a shooting war, although at times the Cold War turned âhotâ as in K…orea and Vietnam. Basically, the Cold War was a rivalry between the United States as leader of the western democracies, and the Soviet Union and the nations that were controlled by the communists.\nSome causes of the Cold War included:\nAttempts by the Soviets and Chinese Communists to influence and take over areas in Asia and Europe.\nContainment--the policy of the United States to stop communism from spreading to other areas of the world.\nThe Truman Doctrine--a policy of supporting anti-communist regimes with military and economic aid. The Doctrine was first used in support of democratic governments in Greece and Turkey.\nThe Marshall Plan--a massive plan to aid in rebuilding Europe after World War II. Western allied nations, as well as neutral nations, and even the Soviet Union were offered economic assistance. The Soviet Union saw this as a threat to their attempt to gain influence in Europe and Asia. \nThe division of Germany after the war---The Soviets blockaded West Berlin, which was deep within Communist East Germany. The Soviets thought the blockade would allow them to take over all of Berlin. The US replied with the Berlin Airlift, to supply West Berlin.\nThe North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was formed in 1949 by the US, Canada, and nine European nations, the first peacetime military alliance in US History. The NATO nations agreed that an attack on one would be an attack on all. The Soviets replied with the Warsaw Pact, a military alliance of communist nations in Eastern Europe.\nSeptember, 1949, the Soviet Union tested its first Atomic Bomb.\nThe Cold War continued through the decades of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, until the collapse of the Soviet Union and the fall of the Berlin Wall.\nBibliography:\nhttp://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/coldwar.htm\nhttp://meme.essortment.com/effectswhatcau_mmy.htm\nhttp://www.teacheroz.com/toc.htm (MORE)

The Germans felt the Versailles Treaty was unfair. They were not even part of creating the treaty. They had to give up land, give up having a strong military, pay millions in reparations and they could not work on building weapons or large military items like planes or tanks. They were forced to tur…n over all their tanks to the other countries that were part of the treaty. It would have taken the Germans until 1988 to pay all the money back the other countries who were demanding reparations. Those were the main points they objected to but there were others also. This treaty affected their economy and businesses. Thousands of Germans were out of work and starving because of that treaty. Hitler basically threw out the Treaty and no longer paid the debt. Hitler hated the way Germany was treated in 1919 and had every intention of making changes the way he figured they should be done. Hence, WWII was started by the Nazis. (MORE)
I can speak for Germany during and after the 2nd world war. The Nazis didn't mobilize the entire population until 1942-43, unlike in the UK and the Soviet Union. The Germans wanted to maintain normalcy and keep the civilian population placated and loyal to the regime. As the war turned against the T…hird Reich, Hitler and Goebels decided to draft women into the armaments industries. They also began to increase the numbers of foreign workers to Germany to produce weaponry of all kinds. Millions of foreign workers were forcefully separated from their families as a result. Millions others, especially Jews and Gypsies, were sent to concentration and death camps. That further decimated families from all over occupied Europe. By the end of the war, old men and young boys were fighting for Germany and dying in large numbers-being outnumbered and outgunned by the Allies. German civilian life was nothing short then miserble for most because of Allied Strategic Bombing raids that occured day and night till April 1945. Over 500,000 Germans died. German family life, after the war, was hard and miserable for its survivors. With millions of its men in Soviet and western allied POW camps, the women were responsible for maintaining the livlihood for its family and discipline. Hundreds of thousands of Germans died of exposure to the cold and malnourishment in the winter of 1945-46. There was a tremenous shortage of houses especially in the large cities that had been wiped out by allied bombers and heavy fighting! Crime was rampant especially committed by young German boys who had no father to look up to. Because of the atrocities committed during the war, the Germans were not respected nor was their much sympathy from the victorious allies, especially the Russians. Speaking of the Russians, over 2 million German women were raped by Soviet troops and thousands committed suicide then to be taken prisoner by the Red Army. Over 2 million German POWS were killed or died of malnutrition during their Soviet imprisonment. Most that survived captivity, weren't released till 1952 or later! Many German POWs were forced to help rebuild Russian cities and towns they had destroyed. Others were sent to Soviet Gulags in Siberia where most died-manly SS officers and men. There was no mercy for the SS by the Russians. If your husband or father was a member of the SS or Waffen SS, chances were that you would never see him again. It would take years for German society to heal itself from the horrors of the war. Millions of widows would never remarry and the children were forced to grow up fast and begin the reconstruction of its country. The Soviet Union would also take years to heal from the immense losses of life it suffered. Over 30 million people died and thousands of cities and villages were destroyed or heavily damaged. Since they had a "command economy", they were able over time to rebuld and force whatever changes that needed to be made then having to deal with a capitalist system. The British economy never did recover from the war. It was heavily in debt and started to see the breakup of its empire. The government stifled free enterprises under the Labour Party and instituted the welfare state until Margaret Thatcher in 1979, became Prime Minister. I think British life was hard-there certainly was rationing as in Germany, for several years. Life was hard but most men survived the war and returned to England to help rebuld. The United States was the only major country that came out of the war better off at the end then at the beginning. Its was the undisputed world power and compared to the German, Japanese, or Russians, suffered not nearly as much in manpower losses. Family life, although not easy during the war, was not nearly a hardship as in England, Germanany, Japan, or the Soviet Union. There was ratioting continued after the war for a couple more years, but then the economy took off and people were much better off. Today, in Germany, Russia, and Japan, the vast majority of the people are pacifist and are against unnecessary military spending! (MORE)

Assess American foreign policy in the aftermath of world war 1 what effect did the war have on American attitudes toward the outside world?
After WW1, the American foreign policy was very wishful that they could now abolish war permanently or prevent it as much as possible and thus formed the League of Nations. The war "...was feared before it started, popular while it lasted, and hated when it ended." After the war, it became a substan…tially widespread belief that the venerable institution of war should be abandoned from their affairs. The American people were glad it was over but wanted vindication and to abandon war from all affairs and go back to an "isolationism" nation that way they wouldn't have to worry about other nations and meddling in each others affairs.

During the War, most European countries (especially Allies) had borrowed money from American banks. So when the war ended, these countries owed massive amounts of money to those banks, and the war had devastated their economies. They found they were unable to pay back their loans, so as part of the …treaties to end the war, they wanted Germany and Austria to pay "reparations" for having caused the war. But Germany and Austria were ruined by the war too, and had difficulty paying these reparations. In the early 1920s, France and Belgium actually invaded and occupied part of western Germany to force them to pay. Eventually Germany worked out deals with the US to help fix the problem, but the damage was already done. Europe's economy was unstable, and when the American economy tanked after the 1929 stock market crash, Europe's economy was wrecked too (with the notable exception of the Soviet Union- they had some problems, and an unrelated disastrous famine, but the Depression itself hardly affected them).
