    I have two questions about history (GCSE History B AQA):

    1) I've recently lost my entire history folder containing all my work from September 2010, and my exam is on the 7th June 2011. I know if I work hard enough, I will probably have enough time to re-do all my work. But I am stressing out majorly, so to make sure I have all the topics.

    Origins of World War I:

    - Morrocan Crises
    - Balkan Crisis
    - Events leading up to August 1914 (after assassination)
    - Assassination of Archduke
    - Schliefflen Plan, Plan 17 etc
    - Alliances
    - Arms Race

    Peacemaking 1918-1919 and the League of Nations:

    - Paris Peace Conference
    - Treaty of Versailles
    - Smaller treaties
    - League of Nations (aims, structure, etc)
    - Success and failures of the League
    - Abyssinian Crisis
    - Manchurian Crisis

    Hitler's foreign policy and the road to WWII:

    - Six Steps to War
    - Re-armament
    - Rhineland
    - Sudetenland
    - Saarland
    - Anschluss
    - Locarno Treaty
    - Kellogg-Briand Pact
    - Spanish Civil War
    - Anti-Comintern Pact
    - Nazi-Soviet Pact

    If there's any more you can think of, please post topics as soon as possible!

    2) I'm re-writing my Origins notes, and I can't think of the word for the feeling of enclosure the Triple Alliance felt because of the geographical position of the Triple Entente - I'm sure there's a certain word for it! If you can help, please do!

    Sorry about such a long post, and thanks for any help you can give!

    Thanks and sorry again,


    Go on Google and type in John D Clare, use his website, its a great website that contains all the history notes you are studying. He also has some revision sheets you may consider printing to help you revise.

    Answer to the second question, I don't recall a special word for it.

    Good luck, don't panic you still have time

    Thank you - I managed to find out the word ("encirclement"). The John D Clare website is really good, especially with sources!

    Thanks again,
