Abstract
In this paper you will read about the finding of the New World was by mistake and information about World War I and World War II. Both Wars were called the Total Wars. A total war is a war fought on all fronts. It has full support of the country and everyone is involved helping towards the war effort. The two wars are and always will be remembered by many.

When the new world was first founded, Christopher Columbus found that there were inhabitants on the new land and he dubbed them the name Indians. He gave them this name because ...view middle of the document...

It is expressed that many of the colonists began to think for themselves and not let the king think for them. The colonists wanted to still be considered English but they wanted to have some more freedom away from the king. Since the colonists wanted more freedom the king decided to disown them and battle against them to try and make them stay a part of the English empire. If you think about it the American colonies were the only part of the English empire that up rose against the English empire. It was absolutely ridiculous that they did this because they had everything going for them; clothes, food, and guns.
To be an American meant, if you can have your own thoughts and express them to other people, having your own rights to do almost anything that you want with your life, and the right to own property. It happened for Europeans because they were so far away from England that they felt they shouldn’t be controlled by a king who is over 3,000 miles away. Today people have their own rights and people who will protect them for these rights.

World War I and World War II

In most of the countries the first Total War was the First World War. World War I started a completely new generation of wars. Before 1914 wars only affected the army and had no change on the lives of ordinary people. At earlier times small professional armies fought the wars, which mean that all the men were especially trained for fighting. Well, those two wars- World War One and World War Two were different. Everyone fought them and everyone provided as much help as possible, it didn’t matter whether the person was skilled or unskilled, old or young, male or female. World War One and World War Two are called Total Wars. The first thing that comes to mind is the scale of war. It was tremendous. I am going to start from speaking about World War I and then later on about World War II.
World War I was a completely new style of wars, the changes were unbelievable, in fact the historians even saw the World War One as “the dividing line between modern and contemporary history”. The war didn’t only change the style of fighting, but also the lifestyle
of people and their views on wars. It involved almost the entire World, and not only were the arguing countries involved, but the others as well. It involved “the entire population on large scale”. As I mentioned previously, the scale of war was enormous. There were about 70 million men fighting from 20 countries. In the beginning there was no conscription, all the men were volunteers, and in fact there were quite a lot of people who wanted to join. Men thought that this war would be like the previous ones and therefore wanted to get it over with. However they were wrong, everything was different, and what the war was really about was completely unexpected.
The government introduced a huge recruitment campaign. It was also the first time so much propaganda was used. Half a million joined the army in one month! The...
