Nuclear Warfare - 1,275 words
The effects caused by a nuclear power accident, on the scale of the April 26, 1986 Chernobyl accident, must override any inclination to side with advocates for nuclear power. Surely we have all heard the expression Im only human. If we are indeed only human, and consequently prone to error, we could never perfectly manage and contain an energy as potentially destructive as that of nuclear power, without the possibility of a nuclear accident. Furthermore, the wastes generated by nuclear power, when inadvertently released during a nuclear power accident, have been proven to cause malignant diseases and premature death to those who come into contact with them.

Trench Warfare - 703 words
World War 1 is perhaps best known for being a war fought in trenches (Grolier 94), ditches dug out of the ground to give troops protection from enemy artillery and machine-gun fire. In Erich Remarque's novel All Quite on the Western Front that is exactly how he described trench warfare. Remarque showed World War 1 as a war fought in trenches, which he depicted well leaving out only a few minor details. The trenches spread from the East to the West. By the end of 1914 trenches stretched all along the 475 miles front (Grolier 94) between the Swiss border and the Channel coast. In some places, enemy trenches were less than thirty yards apart (Stewart 40). Although trenches spread for many miles ...

Spartan Warfare - 1,221 words
In the 7th Century BC a new era of warfare strategy evolved. Before this new strategy, foot soldiers known as hoplites engaged in battle in the form of one mob for each army which on the command of their generals runs at each other and proceeds to hack blindly at the enemy with little to no direction other then to kill the enemy in front of them. This proved to be very messy and the tide of battle depended mostly on emotion and size of an army. In the name of strategy and organization, the phalanx was developed. A phalanx is simply defined as a line formation with its width significantly larger then its depth. The depth of the phalanx is a variable which some suggest was decided by the army ...

Liklihood Of A Biological Warfare Occurence - 541 words
Biological warfare agents are a unique type of weapons that is actually a living organism. Fungi, bacteria, viruses, and other macromolecules, which are capable of killing, are considered agents of biological war.

Effects Of Warfare On The Formation Of The Modern State - 1,520 words
The definition of a modern state is debatable, but for the purpose of this essay the definition a distinct form of public power, separate from both ruler and ruled and forming the political authority within certain defined boundaries, (Chapter 2, Unit 1, p 73) appears appropriate. A modern state has four main features: fixed territorial boundaries, a monopoly on force and the means of coercion, impersonal and sovereign political order and the legitimacy to represent the needs and interests of its citizens. This form of state was to become a common feature of the entire global system. This essay will outline the main historical forces which have contributed to the development of the modern st ...

The Merrimac And Naval Warfare Of The Civil War - 1,462 words
The Merrimac was the first ironclad ship built by the Confederacy. It was built to do battle with the Union Navy. The Confederates were the first to bring forth a warship of this kind. The Union was in control of a navel yard named Gosport. In April of 1862, the South started to advance on this navel base and the North had little choice but to flee. While leaving they tried to destroy whatever they could in a desperate attempt to prevent the Confederacy from gaining more military power with Union supplies. Unfortunately, for the North, they caused little damage to the base in the time that they had (Barthell, The Mystery of the Merrimack 106). The Union tried to destroy one of their better s ...

Dangers Of Biological Warfare - 1,345 words
Since man first started using his hands to make tools and weapons, he has always struggled to be more powerful and have better weapons than his enemies. Today is no different. Perhaps one of the newest, most publicly known type of weapon being created and tested is biological warfare. This type of warfare is believed to be the best and most deadly of all weapons, however, the big question is, how safe is it, and what are its effects on the environment? In James Powliks Sea Change, the author clearly states that biological warfare is not safe and that it is harmful to the environment. Three good examples of this are: the Pfiesteria in Powliks novel, its effects on humans, and its effects on a ...

The Assyrians took their warfare seriously; in fact they studied war techniques like a science (Riley, 45). The Assyrians even had special schools set up to teach sapping (military demolition of walls etc.) and mining city walls (Riley, 45). The Assyrians were the innovators of war in their time. The Assyrian army was feared for many reasons one including the use of iron in their weapons. The Assyrians were the first to use iron in spears, swords, shields and armor. They even tipped their bat ...

All Quiet On The Westren Front - 5,580 words
All Quiet on the Western Front Chapter SummaryBy: Jesse CodyAll Quiet on the Western Front is an anti-war novel from the opening chapters. Many critics of the novel in the early days after the publication of the novel blamed Remarque for writing for shock value. They did not want to believe his novel represented the truth about World War I. In many ways, such people were like Paul's schoolmaster, Kantorek. They wanted to cling to classical, romantic notions of war. However, Remarque wrote his novel specifically to shatter those idealistic illusions. Yes, he wrote to shock, but he also wrote to educate.The young teenage men who enlisted in the army on both sides often never recovered from th ...
