World War I History 3.2 APK
World War I (WWI or WW1), also known as the First World War, or theGreat War, was a global war centred in Europe that began on 28 July1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. More than 70 millionmilitary personnel, including 60 million Europeans, were mobilisedin one of the largest wars in history.[5][6] Over 9 millioncombatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war(including the victims of a number of genocides), a casualty rateexacerbated by the belligerents' technological and industrialsophistication, and the tactical stalemate caused by trenchwarfare, a grueling form of warfare in which the defender held theadvantage. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, andpaved the way for major political changes, including revolutions inmany of the nations involved.[7] The war drew in all the world’seconomic great powers,[8] assembled in two opposing alliances: theAllies (based on the Triple Entente of the United Kingdom/BritishEmpire, France and the Russian Empire) and the Central Powers ofGermany and Austria-Hungary. Although Italy had also been a memberof the Triple Alliance alongside Germany and Austria-Hungary, itdid not join the Central Powers, as Austria-Hungary had taken theoffensive against the terms of the alliance.[9] These allianceswere reorganised and expanded as more nations entered the war:Italy, Japan and the United States joined the Allies, while theOttoman Empire and Bulgaria joined the Central Powers.
World War II History 4.2 APK
World War II (WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, wasa global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, though relatedconflicts began earlier. It involved the vast majority of theworld's nations—including all of the great powers—eventuallyforming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis.It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involvedmore than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of"total war", the major participants threw their entire economic,industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort,erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources.Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust (inwhich approximately 11 million people were killed)[1][2] and thestrategic bombing of industrial and population centres (in whichapproximately one million were killed, and which included theatomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki),[3] it resulted in anestimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities. These made World WarII the deadliest conflict in human history.[4] The Empire of Japanaimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific and was already at war withthe Republic of China in 1937,[5] but the world war is generallysaid to have begun on 1 September 1939[6] with the invasion ofPoland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany byFrance and the United Kingdom. From late 1939 to early 1941, in aseries of campaigns and treaties, Germany conquered or controlledmuch of continental Europe, and formed the Axis alliance with Italyand Japan. Based on the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939,Germany and the Soviet Union partitioned and annexed territories oftheir European neighbours, Poland, Finland, Romania and the Balticstates. The war continued primarily between the European Axispowers and the United Kingdom and the British Commonwealth, withcampaigns including the North Africa and East Africa campaigns, theaerial Battle of Britain, the Blitz bombing campaign, the BalkanCampaign as well as the long-running Battle of the Atlantic. InJune 1941, the European Axis powers launched an invasion of theSoviet Union, opening the largest land theatre of war in history,which trapped the major part of the Axis' military forces into awar of attrition. In December 1941, Japan attacked the UnitedStates and European territories in the Pacific Ocean, and quicklyconquered much of the Western Pacific.
History of the United States of America 2.8 APK
The date of the start of the history of the United States is asubject of constant debate among historians. Older textbooks startwith the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492 and emphasize theEuropean background, or they start around 1600 and emphasize theAmerican frontier. In recent decades American schools anduniversities typically have shifted back in time to include more onthe colonial period and much more on the prehistory of the Nativepeoples. Indigenous people lived in what is now the United Statesfor thousands of years before European colonists began to arrive,mostly from England, after 1600. The Spanish had small settlementsin Florida and the Southwest, and the French along the MississippiRiver and the Gulf Coast. By the 1770s, thirteen British coloniescontained two and a half million people along the Atlantic coasteast of the Appalachian Mountains. In the 1760s the Britishgovernment imposed a series of new taxes while rejecting theAmerican argument that any new taxes had to be approved by thepeople (see Stamp Act 1765). Tax resistance, especially the BostonTea Party (1774), led to punitive laws (the Intolerable Acts) byParliament designed to end self-government in Massachusetts.American Patriots (as they called themselves) adhered to apolitical ideology called republicanism that emphasized civic duty,virtue, and opposition to corruption, fancy luxuries andaristocracy.
Biography of Adolf Hitler 2.8 APK
Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-bornGerman politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (German:Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP); NationalSocialist German Workers Party). He was Chancellor of Germany from1933 to 1945 and Führer ("leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to1945. As effective dictator of Nazi Germany, Hitler was at thecentre of World War II in Europe and the Holocaust. Hitler was adecorated veteran of World War I. He joined the precursor of theNSDAP, the German Workers' Party, in 1919 and became leader of theNSDAP in 1921. In 1923 he attempted a coup in Munich to seizepower. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, duringwhich time he wrote his autobiography and political manifesto MeinKampf ("My Struggle"). After his release in 1924, Hitler gainedpopular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promotingPan-Germanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism with charismaticoratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denouncedinternational capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewishconspiracy. Hitler's Nazi Party became the largest elected party inthe German Reichstag, leading to his appointment as chancellor in1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstagpassed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transformingthe Weimar Republic into the Third Reich, a single-partydictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology ofNational Socialism. Hitler aimed to eliminate Jews from Germany andestablish a New Order to counter what he saw as the injustice ofthe post-World War I international order dominated by Britain andFrance. His first six years in power resulted in rapid economicrecovery from the Great Depression, the denunciation ofrestrictions imposed on Germany after World War I, and theannexation of territories that were home to millions of ethnicGermans—actions which gave him significant popular support. Hitlersought Lebensraum ("living space") for the German people. Hisaggressive foreign policy is considered to be the primary cause ofthe outbreak of World War II in Europe. He directed large-scalerearmament and on 1 September 1939 invaded Poland, resulting inBritish and French declarations of war on Germany. In June 1941,Hitler ordered an invasion of the Soviet Union. By the end of 1941German forces and the European Axis powers occupied most of Europeand North Africa. Failure to defeat the Soviets and the entry ofthe United States into the war forced Germany onto the defensiveand it suffered a series of escalating defeats. In the final daysof the war, during the Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married hislong-time lover, Eva Braun. On 30 April 1945, less than two dayslater, the two committed suicide to avoid capture by the Red Army,and their corpses were burned.
History of India in local languages 2.7 APK
Anatomically modern humans are thought to have arrived on theIndian subcontinent between 73,000 and 55,000 years ago.[1] Settledlife, which involves the transition from foraging to farming andpastoralism, began in South Asia around 7,000 BCE; during thisperiod, domestication of wheat and barley, rapidly followed by thatof goats, sheep, and cattle occurred.[2] By 4,500 BCE, settled lifehad become more widely prevalent,[2] and eventually evolved intothe Indus Valley Civilization. Considered a cradle ofcivilisation,[3] the Indus Valley civilisation, which spread andflourished in the north-western part of the Indian subcontinentfrom 3300 to 1300 BCE, was the first major civilisation in SouthAsia.[4] A sophisticated and technologically advanced urban culturedeveloped in the Mature Harappan period, from 2600 to 1900 BCE.[5]Indus Valley Civilisation was noted for developing new techniquesin handicraft, carnelian products, seal carving, metallurgy, urbanplanning, baked brick houses, efficient drainage systems, watersupply systems and clusters of large non-residential buildings.[6]This civilisation collapsed at the start of the second millenniumBCE and was later followed by the Iron Age Vedic Period. In earlysecond millennium BCE persistent drought caused the population ofthe Indus Valley to scatter from large urban centres to villages.Around the same time, Indo-Aryan tribes moved into the Punjab fromregions further northwest in several waves of migration. Theresulting Vedic period was marked by the composition of the Vedas,large collections of hymns of these tribes whose postulatedreligious culture, through synthesis with the preexisting religiouscultures of the subcontinent, gave rise to Hinduism. The castesystem, which created a hierarchy of priests, warriors, and freepeasants arose later during this period. Towards the end of theperiod, around 600 BCE, after the pastoral and nomadic Indo-Aryansspread from the Punjab into the Gangetic plain, large swaths ofwhich they deforested to pave way for agriculture, a secondurbanisation took place. The numerous Indo-Aryan realms, orjanapadas, were consolidated into larger states, or mahajanapadas.This urbanisation was accompanied by the rise of new asceticmovements, including Jainism and Buddhism, which challenged theprimacy of rituals, presided by Brahmin priests, that had come tobe associated with Vedic religion,[7] and gave rise to newreligious concepts.[8] Most of the Indian subcontinent wasconquered by the Maurya Empire during the 4th and 3rd centuriesBCE. From the 3rd century BCE onwards Prakrit and Pali literaturein the north and the Tamil Sangam literature in southern Indiastarted to flourish.[9][10] Wootz steel originated in south Indiain the 3rd century BCE and was exported to foreigncountries.[11][12][13] During the Classical period, various partsof India were ruled by numerous dynasties for the next 1,500 years,among which the Gupta Empire stands out. This period, witnessing aHindu religious and intellectual resurgence, is known as theclassical or "Golden Age of India". During this period, aspects ofIndian civilisation, administration, culture, and religion(Hinduism and Buddhism) spread to much of Asia, while kingdoms insouthern India had maritime business links with the Middle East andthe Mediterranean. Indian cultural influence spread over many partsof Southeast Asia, which led to the establishment of Indianisedkingdoms in Southeast Asia (Greater India).[14][15] Have manylanguages : -English -Hindi (हिन्दी) -Tamil (தமிழ்) -Kannada(ಕನ್ನಡ) -Malayalam (മലയാളം) -Urdu (اردو) -Marathi (मराठी) -Gujarati(ગુજરાતી) -Telugu (తెలుగు)
History of Mexico 2.6 APK
The history of Mexico, a country in the southern portion of NorthAmerica, covers a period of more than three millennia. Firstpopulated more than 13,000 years ago,[1] The territory had complexindigenous civilizations before being conquered by the Spanish inthe 16th century. One of the important aspects of Mesoamericancivilizations was their development of a form of writing, so thatMexico's written history stretches back hundreds of years beforethe arrival of the Spaniards in 1519. This era before the arrivalof Europeans is called variously the prehispanic era or theprecolumbian era. The Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan became theSpanish capital Mexico City, which was and remains the mostpopulous city in Mexico. From 1521, the Spanish conquest of theAztec empire incorporated the region into the Spanish empire, withNew Spain its colonial era name and Mexico City the center ofcolonial rule. It was built on the ruins of the Aztec capital ofTenochtitlan and became the capital of New Spain. During thecolonial era, Mexico's long-established Mesoamerican civilizationsmixed with European culture. Perhaps nothing better represents thishybrid background than Mexico's languages: the country is both themost populous Spanish-speaking country in the world and home to thelargest number of Native American language speakers in NorthAmerica. For three centuries Mexico was part of the Spanish Empire,whose legacy is a country with a Spanish-speaking, Catholic andlargely Western culture.
History of the Cold War 2.4 APK
The Cold War was a state of political and military tension afterWorld War II between powers in the Western Bloc (the United States,its NATO allies and others) and powers in the Eastern Bloc (theSoviet Union and its allies in the Warsaw Pact). Historians do notfully agree on the dates, but 1947–91 is common. The term "cold" isused because there was no large-scale fighting directly between thetwo sides, although there were major regional wars, known as proxywars, supported by the two sides. The Cold War split the temporarywartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the USas two superpowers with profound economic and politicaldifferences: the former being a single-party Marxist–Leninist stateoperating a planned economy and controlled press and owningexclusively the right to establish and govern communities, and thelatter being a capitalist state with generally free elections andpress, which also granted freedom of expression and freedom ofassociation to its citizens. A self-proclaimed neutral bloc arosewith the Non-Aligned Movement founded by Egypt, India, Indonesiaand Yugoslavia; this faction rejected association with either theUS-led West or the Soviet-led East. The two superpowers neverengaged directly in full-scale armed combat, but they were heavilyarmed in preparation for a possible all-out nuclear world war. Eachside had a nuclear deterrent that deterred an attack by the otherside, on the basis that such an attack would lead to totaldestruction of the attacker: the doctrine of mutually assureddestruction (MAD). Aside from the development of the two sides'nuclear arsenals, and deployment of conventional military forces,the struggle for dominance was expressed via proxy wars around theglobe, psychological warfare, massive propaganda campaigns andespionage, rivalry at sports events, and technological competitionssuch as the Space Race.
Otto von Bismarck Biography 2.3 APK
Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg (1 April1815 – 30 July 1898), known as Otto von Bismarck, was aconservative Prussian statesman who dominated German and Europeanaffairs from the 1860s until 1890. In the 1860s he engineered aseries of wars that unified the German states (excluding Austria)into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership. With thataccomplished by 1871 he skillfully used balance of power diplomacyto preserve German hegemony in a Europe which, despite manydisputes and war scares, remained at peace. For historian EricHobsbawm, it was Bismarck who "remained undisputed world championat the game of multilateral diplomatic chess for almost twentyyears after 1871, [and] devoted himself exclusively, andsuccessfully, to maintaining peace between the powers." In 1862,King Wilhelm I appointed Bismarck as Minister President of Prussia,a position he would hold until 1890 (except for a short break in1873). He provoked three short, decisive wars against Denmark,Austria and France, aligning the smaller German states behindPrussia in defeating his arch-enemy France. In 1871 he formed theGerman Empire with himself as Chancellor, while retaining controlof Prussia. His diplomacy of realpolitik and powerful rule at homegained him the nickname the "Iron Chancellor." German unificationand its rapid economic growth was the foundation to his foreignpolicy. He disliked colonialism but reluctantly built an overseasempire when it was demanded by both elite and mass opinion.Juggling a very complex interlocking series of conferences,negotiations and alliances, he used his diplomatic skills tomaintain Germany's position and used the balance of power to keepEurope at peace in the 1870s and 1880s.
