Hi guys. I need to do 3000 words for a history assignment discussing and comparing two different perspectives. I can choose any topic I want but I'm struggling, for an example someone in my class did the Salem Witches trial.

Any ideas? It's quite broad

Different perspectives of a war from 2 different countries? E.g. British and Argentine perspectives to the Falklands conflict, and possession of the islands?

Thanks. I'll keep it in mind, sounds like the kind of thing I need. Was hoping I could avoid doing something war related though

the roaring twenties could be an interesting historical period of studies

https://www.history.com/topics/roaring-twenties

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roarin...ost_Generation

One perspective is that the economic growth, the jazz age was born, the new women movement, the lost generation.
The other perspective is that people lived in a pure Illusion of material age, lived like there was no tomorrow which leads them in the period of the Great Depression.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_..._United_States

Alongside this, the roaring twenties was an illusion since they thought the war is over forever, but the WWII followed soon after.

I did the 1920s USA for GCSE History coursework, this is actually a perfect topic for comparing different perspectives. You could also mention the increased intolerance in that period.

I recommend Chamberlain and appeasement and whether he did the right thing. I did it for my A Level coursework last year and it was easy to find interpretations.
