    Any chance someone has an essay for morale in WW2? Struggling to see how there's enough for an essay. Thanks!

    Anyone got a good essay on "The biggest threat to Weimar Democracy in the years 1919 to 1924 was the extreme left"? - Thanks

    What are the kinds of questions that can be asked for efficiency. I know its a part b and we didn't know the sources but I don't understand what type of question they ask.
    Thanks in advance

    I predict that one of the questions for Section A will be something like: 'The Weimar Republic was stable in the years 1924-9'. How far do you agree with this view?

    That would be beautiful! I really think they are going to ask something about the golden years.

    The wording could be something like;

    To what extent do you agree that the period 1924-1929 should be labelled 'the golden years'?

    Or

    How far do you agree that the latter half of the 1920s saw a great deal of success

    In this question would you talk about
    Threat from the right and left, the judiciary and the army?

    I agree! They've never asked anything on the 'golden years' before so I have a feeling this will be the year!

    I think those factors - particularly the threat of the extreme right and left - are more relevant to the early, 'crisis' years of Weimar (1919-23). For Weimar's so-called 'Golden years', I would talk about political (in)stability, economic (in)stability, Stresemann's foreign policy 'successes' and the cultural shift which did so much to polarise popular ideas.

    Isn't this year their last chance to do so because of the specification changes?

    Yeah, not counting the retakers next year

    But this is the last main exam for this spec

    In the effectiveness controversy, would we focus on all the factors (week dictator, strong dictator, working towards the fuhrer) or could we asked to focus on just one of them specifically

    Who else is feeling screwed for this exam?
    I'm tempered to just either focus on the nazis or the Weimar Republic and the second reich because nothing seems to be going in anymore

    at the very least focus on Wiemar and germany in ww2. there's an extremely high chance both of these could come up.

    i dont feel confident for this exam either but i just need a c overall to get a B.

    That would be ace if you could but if it's too time consuming don't worry about it! If would be super helpful even if you just outlined your main points/arguments, thank you so much! ^_^
