5b was why did japan invade manchuria
7a) Things decided at yalta/potsdam.
Russia join war against Japan
Germany divided into 4
Berlin divided into 4
Nazi party outlawed
7b) Why Truman followed a policy of containment
7c) 'the Berlin Blockade was a serious threat to world peace'
Weimar 10 marker was actually how far did the weimar government resolve germanys problems that resulted from the TOV.
for that you might put:
-dawes plan, economic stability, loans
-political stability e.g coalitions, nazis only got 3% of the votes
-industrial production returned to prewar levels
-balanced on US loans, could be recalled, unstable
-dawes plan was more due to the US government than weimar
-nazis still building up their party
-unemployment still high
-there were still reparations to pay
for 7b i also had (although this was my worst):
-stop spread of communism, stop USSR gaining influence
-keep europe capitalist and friendly to USA, provide market for american goods, boost american economy and keep US public happy with Truman
-Iron curtain speech
also 5a was describe the work of, not actions of, which i think is quite important because it suggests they want you to ask what it was supposed to do instead of what it did (i think, who knows thoo)
also 12 was i believe:
a) describe the events of the nuremberg rallies
b) why was the "aryan master race" theory important for the nazis
c) "the nazis successfully controlled their people", how far do you agree
the last one may be wrong though, can anyone correct me?
15a) describe problems faced by Black Americans in the 1920s.
Lynching by KKK
physically assaulted by 'athletic clubs' in some cities
b) why did farmers not share in the prosperity of the 1920s?
overproduction led to fall in prices
Competition from more efficient Canadian wheat farmers
fall in demand from Europe after WW1.
c) 'mass marketing was the main cause of the economic boom in the 1920s.'
sorry that was a lot of info at once haha!
5a) They examined the site of the explosion at the South Manchurian Railway, they were slow as they took boat (it does say 'describe' XD)
7c) FOR: It was a flashpoint, increased likelihood of atomic war. Led to the Formation of NATO and the Warsaw Pact - magnified the war onto a global scale (though these are the consequences of the blockade, NOT the blockade itself - something to consider perhaps) First direct confrontation between the nations - tensions had only existed through indirect conflicts (e.g Greece 1947)
AGAINST: Unlikely they would have gone to war because of Mutually Assured Destruction. Allied airlift and determination showed to Stalin that confrontation would not be easy and therefore futile - this averted future conflicts. Led to GDR and FGR which co existed until Gorbi's time...and some other stuff. It was only a conflict between East/West Germany
Did people mention alternatives that caused a threat to world peace, e.g Marshall Plan, Soviet Expansionism - I was hesitant to do this given that it directly referred to whether or not the Berlin Blockade itself was a threat to global security.
for the berlin blockade question (this is just what i wrote):
was a serious threat:
-100ish US soldiers died due to soviet buzzing of planes, shows it was serious
-created arms race, increased military spending
-led to division of Germany into FDR and GDR
-probably would get some credit for explaining why those things threatened world peace
wasn't a serious threat:
-lasted for nearly a year, shows it wasn't that urgent as neither USA nor USSR felt it necessary to resolve
-other problems more serious e.g Germany being in zones
-not a threat to world peace as it didnt threaten all countries, mostly just Europe/USA/USSR
-expand on powers e.g dissolve reichstag, call elections
-appoint cabinet ministers
-degree of power over the military
oh yeah sorry haha i should probably stop now
