He argued that the men and women fought not for the fame and recognition, but because it was the right thing to do. When they came back they rebuilt America into a Superpower. Do you agree with Brokaw’s belief that the WWII generation was unique or do you believe that any generation of Americans (including your own) would respond to the challenges of the era in a similar way? Provide specific examples from class and readings to support your opinion.

Topic II: Reality of War Journal Topic: Many historians say that E.B. Sledge was able to write a memoir about his experiences on the island of Peleliu that may be one of the finest of all time. What can be learned from his memoir about the morality of war and Sledge’s belief that “compassion for the suffering of others in war is a burden to those who have it”? Provide specific examples from class and the reading to support your opinion.

Topic III: Legacy of the Bomb Journal: Many of the scientists who worked on the Manhattan Project commented that they hoped to eventually prove that a Nuclear Weapon could not be created. Once the A- Bomb was created, tested, and used by the United States it set into motion an arms race that pitted the worlds superpowers against each other. Modern world diplomacy is dominated by nations that posses these weapons and destabilized by those trying to develop their own. The question that you will consider is would the world be a better place (more peaceful/stable) if the Manhattan Project had failed and nuclear weaponry had proved to be an impossibility or has the mere existence of these weapons and their potential to destroy humanity actually stabilized the world and prevented major conflicts between superpowers like WWI and WWII?

    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.
