  • Decolonization of Southeast Asia

    📕24.762 🕔30.04.2009

    After World War II, a wave of nationalism swept through Asia, as a result of which many nations declared their independence from the colonial powers. The post-war growth of nationalism and the rapid decolonization were the result of several factors. World War II itself meant enormous exhaustion for the colonial powers, which meant a loss of control over the colonies. Another factor was the emergence of domestic intelligence, which studied at Western universities and demanded democracy, self-government and the right to self-determination. In some cases, colonial nations participated as allies in the war and contributed to the victory of freedom - and they wanted it for themselves after the war. Another element that manifested itself in Asia was Japan's contribution to the demise of European colonies. On the one hand, Japan lost its own colonies, and on the other, it promoted and encouraged national movements that opposed the restoration of European domination after the war. Britain reacted more promptly than France and the Netherlands to the strength of the independence movement and began the process of decolonization. However, we cannot forget the US pressure and example when they granted independence to one of their colonies, the Philippines, in 1946. However, some powers have decided to resist these movements. The wars waged by France and the Netherlands to regain control of their colonies in Southeast Asia only confirmed this fact.

They ruled on his behalf, they enriched themselves, but they did not allow the right of a minor monarch to be questioned. Both uncles of little Ivan - Yuri and Andrei, brothers Vasily III. - They ended up in a famine. This boy's allegiance to little Ivan was primarily the work of their egoism, which commanded the support of a ruler who could not rule himself.

  • Marshal Bernadotte (Part 1) - Service in the Army

    📕23.688 🕔04.06.2008

    The Great French Revolution brought the world not only a picture of the people's struggle against the hated regime, but also a number of heroes and personalities, for whom it became a springboard to fame. The Grande Armée became a kind of "seedbed" of these nascent heroes, who fought valiantly for their ideals. If they did, they rose rapidly through the military hierarchy, and with the gradual increase in their wealth, their ideals were later replaced by a desire for power. Some began to make their own plans, pursue their goals, and no longer serve in the military with as zeal as during the revolution. Jean-Baptiste Jules Bernadotte was a very controversial figure from Napoleon's marshals.

  • Military aspects of the september volunteer expedition

    📕19.857 🕔27.11.2008

    The revolutionary movement that swept Europe in 1848-1849 was a manifestation of the culminating crisis of the existing political and social system, a milestone in the transition from feudalism to capitalism, a profound intervention in the process of bourgeois transformation of most states on the European continent. In the revolutions of this period, unresolved issues of a national nature, the pursuit of national equality, originality, state independence and a freer national life in all its spheres played a major role in many countries, including Hungary. The nation became one of the most important attributes of the time, and the masses tried to enforce their own demands by using revolutionary, especially armed, means. A new era was expected to begin. In this sense, the revolution of 1848-1849 was a real " spring of nations ."

  • Military aspects of the winter volunteer expedition

    📕18.331 🕔27.11.2008

    Slovak society entered the revolutionary events in a largely undeveloped form. At a time when the Slovak nobility was being nationalized, the Slovak intelligentsia became the main representative of the national movement. March's revolutionary events also had a strong impact in Slovakia, and Slovaks welcomed the " spring of nations " full of hopes and expectations. The culmination of their efforts and demands became the St. Nicholas Requests of the Slovak Nation, to which, however, the Pest government responded by persecuting the authors of the St. Nicholas Assembly and issuing an arrest warrant for J.M. Hurban, M.M. Hodža and Ľ. Štúr. The alternative of a possible agreement with the Hungarian government has reached a dead end.

  • Peter I. the Great - Foreign policy

    📕23.625 🕔28.06.2008

    The reign of the second Romanov on the imperial throne, Alexei Mikhailovich ( 1645 - 1676 ), was characterized by some historians as the period of the fading Russian Middle Ages. Beneath the surface of this outwardly slow life of the great Eastern Empire, however, changes took place that foreshadowed the onset of a new age. In this contradictory environment, in which the signs of the necessary reforms were already announced, Tsarich Peter , the fourteenth child of Tsar Alexei, was born on May 30, 7180, since the creation of the world (1672). Of the five imperial sons, only three survived their father (Fyodor and Ivan from the first, Peter from the second marriage).

    The word tsar was an irrevocable law. The new ruler then became the unhealthy 28 - year - old Fyodor, whose rightful place was in a monastery cell or church rather than on a throne. The violent father broke his - otherwise with Fyodor's dull intellect not too firm - his will so perfectly that he never, even as a tsar, became a completely independent man again.

    The old customs and orders of succession were shattered by the death of Emperor Alexei. Traditional succession rights were also violated by Peter's decree, which reserved the right to appoint a successor himself. And so the autocracy became a victim of the forces it had created. For 37 years after the death of Peter I, the tsar was decided by the guard, ie the political forces that were able to win the guard to their side.
