World War I split the country, and there was actually some armed rebellion against the Botha  government, which joined in the war against Germany, Austria, and Turkey. Then during the 1930s,  the Nationalist party and other Afrikaner elements turned toward Hitler in Germany. They added a  hatred of Jews to their hatred of the English-speaking South Africans, the native colored, and the  Indian population. Further, they advocated a one-party dictatorship in which the English-speaking  population would have some of their rights taken from them, and the Indian, native, and black  populations would have almost no legal rights at all. When Germany attacked Poland, and France and Britain then declared war, the question of whether  or not South Africa would enter the war on Britain's side was doubtful, but the Smuts government  won and Parliament passed a declaration of war by a slim majority.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
