War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

H.G. Wells is honored with the title, “Father of Everything Sci-Fi” for a great many reasons, but the main ones would be his capturing every single aspect of realism and the unknown in a single word. His words are a reflection to our human weaknesses, and that of the greater threat of the great many things we don’t have control of, which is an idea that, at best, leaves us trembling at dark corners. He speaks of the alien life forms of something not in style romantic at all. Though, at the time, many writers were taking literary liberties and explaining even cold-blooded convicts to be, in som ...

World War Memorials in Washington D.C.

According to Grimmett (2010), the War Powers Resolution Act was enacted to prevent future presidents of the United States from engaging the Armed Forces in wars similar to the Vietnam War that resulted in extremely negative effects for the United States. It was further argued that a president ...

War between the USA and the Soviet Union

The historians reported that the Cold War was one of the main political issues of the 20th century. Though, there is no a unique agreement considering the exact time when the Cold War began. The confrontation between the USA and the Soviet Union started after the establishment of the communist regime after the Soviet Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. There was a threat of spreading the communist regime all over the globe. That was the main reason for the confrontation between two superpowers: the USA and the Soviet Union (Martin et al., 2007). That confrontation was strengthened in 1947 after the ...

Thirty Years’ War

From 1618-1648, Europe was overwhelmed in a sequence of intensely vicious conflicts referred to as the Thirty Years’ War. This war is in partly a fight amid an imperial scheme of government and the up and coming nation state. In fact, several historians deem that the contemporary global scheme of nation state was shaped up in the 1648 Treaty of Westphalia, which eventually terminated the conflict.

This will be a battle because the survival and profitability of majority of the most wealthy and powerful corpo ...
