Q:Account for the decision to draop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Was it rationale?
A: This question is really a matter of opinion. My opinion is what that unfortunatly so many people died in the bombings, I do feel that it was nessesary. Due to the fact that the war may haved dragged on for alot longer since the Japanese refused to surrender after the fall of Germany. There might have been a more humain way to do this, but at that time i felt that the bomb was nessecary.

Q: How did German blitzkrieg strategy have a devastating impact at the start of the Hostilities?
A: The reason it worked so well was because the offence was too strong for any opposing country at the time. Nobody made the time or the effort to build an army like the German's.
Q: Why was the strategy so sucessful against Poland, and the "Low" countries and France?
A: Since all these countries were so small and Germany's army so big, a quick all out offence would blow through any defence that the "Low" countries or France could handle. Although Frace is a bigger country than the rest, another factor was the size the German army. The size was to great for a good counter attack or defence from France.
Q: How did the strategy break down during the invation of the Soviet Union?
A: Well the Soviet Union was twice the size of any country the Germans had attacked so far. With an operation such as the blitz its an all out attack, which a country that size it causes your army to be spread thin. Also that the fact that communication was breaking apart and the Russian winter was setting in, they didn't have the ways to get supplies to the soliders. Another fact realating to that was that the Germans were so concerned about elimenating the Jews that all the supply trains were used to ship Jews, when they could have been used to feed the hungry and cold soliders.
