Kershaw’s journal draws up a series of points, which tell us about Hitler’s style of government, and the way, in which he conducted his daily and long-term actions, it gives us a good comparison between Stalin and Hitler and how they differ in terms of leadership. When analysing a source we have to look at its significance or value when using it to answer our question and throughout Ian Kershaw’s “Working towards the Führer”, he gives us various examples and evidence on Hitler’s role in the n**i party and how that differed from Stalin’s leadership.

Critically evaluate the skills you have begun to acquire as a historian. Why and in what ways are they important? What other skills should a historian acquire and why?
No there are key skills a Historian must posses if they are going dissect the past accurately. In this essay I intend to evaluate some of the skills I have begun to acquire and state why I believe they are important for a historian to have. When studying History the foundation of the course is based on the knowledge of dates, names, facts, places, events and ideas. However I have come to realise that there must be more arsenal in the weaponry of a true historian. The ability to assess all types of historical evidence is a skill I believe is compulsory.

Palestinian Identity. Rashid Khalidi, in his important book Palestinian Identity, locates the Palestinian proto-nationalist identity as the product of many years of growing nationalist sentiment during the final years of Ottoman rule during the late 19th and early 20th centuries
by ?Muslims and Christians?. While these two groups had ?different conceptions? from one another of what ?made? Palestine a Holy Land, Khalidi asserts that they both ?shared a similar general idea? that the country was a ?special and holy? ?unit?.  Indeed, ?religion? is an ?ancient and well tried? mean of unity to establish ?a sort of brotherhood between people? and most certainly acts as ?paradoxical cement for proto-nationalism?.  This ?cement,? of course, is the common religiously based attachment to Palestine as a holy land.

Do MO reports on the public experience of evacuation suggest that the government should not have spent 9 million pounds?
by Women evacuees coming to and going from London, with their also being long waiting times between buses for those sleeping out of town. Furthermore, the evacuation also caused an issue with food, finding that “evacuees and refugees queued up at 9 o’clock before food shops and bought large quantities of food, leaving none for regular customers.” As well as this, in some towns such as Leicester, there were incidences of shops selling out of food especially cooked meats. This would highlight that the evacuations are causing widespread disruptions and are affecting more people than just those who were evacuated, suggesting that the evacuation system was not worth the £9 million pounds that the government spent.

This policy recognized only clear Aryan people which are predestinated to control people of other races. Therefore, Nazis tried to get rid of people who didn?t meet their conditions. Most of unfitting people were sent to concentration or annihilation camps where most of them died because of cruel and poor conditions or were killed. This involved mainly people with Jewish background but the final thought was to efface all Slavic nations. With Nazis expansion though Europe they Germanized occupied territories. Who knows where it would end, if their expansion weren?t stopped. However, about 40 million of civil people died in the World War II.

This, they believed, would ensure the progress of American society. The progressive movement refers to the common spirit of an age rather than to an organized group or party and it was so diverse in its origins and intentions that few people adhered to all of its principles. Nevertheless, Progressivism became one of the central elements of American liberalism, and the legislation and initiatives of the period lay the first steps for what would become in the 1930s the Welfare state.

What are the grounds on which the dropping of the nuclear bombs on Japan have been either condemned or justified?
I believe, it had to be developed to counter the threat of n**i Germany who had also started to develop their own nuclear programme that potentially could have easily turned the tide of war in it?s favour. The focus of this essay is to analyse the grounds on which the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and then 3 days later in Nagasaki killed 100,000 instantly and an estimated 200,000 to radiation poisoning over the coming decades; however, these figures do remain hotly contested to this day.
