world history 10

For this unit you will write your second longer essay. The Great War brought large scale industrialism to the battlefield and nothing has been the same since (military history buffs will note that features of industrialization and warfare can be traced back to the Civil War here in the US and the Crimean War of the 1850s). Tolkien fans will want to know that it was his experiences in WWI that characterized the descriptions of war machines tearing down the forests in Lord of the Rings. President Obama visited WWI battlefields while at the G7 in spring 2014 and read the following poem, written by WWI soldier John McCrae after a friend died in the trenches. McCrae himself died of pneumonia on the battlefield in January 1918. The poppy is now a symbol of the American Legion here in the US (and similarly in Britain). They give them to folks who donate to their charity every year. You may add this to your collection of documents for your paper: In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. For your SECOND LONGER essay this week, read some of the poems (link below) and write a 1000-1250- word essay explaining to what extent the poems you have chosen illustrate the changing nature of society and warfare in the early 20th century. Remember, you are analyzing the poems as historical documents, not for literary criticism. You do not need to comment on longer essays.
