    During the 19th century, a group of artists in France broke away from the traditional "realistic" style of painting, to a style that would later be named 'Impressionism.' The name comes from Monet's painting, "Impressionism: Sunrise," adopted by the artists after critics scornfully classified the paintings to be impressions. The times were changing and with that change came many new materials, techniques and fresh ideas; the artists also felt the need for a drastic change in art so they defied their teachings and rejected realistic painting. The leading artists in this movement were Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Manet. Although the first Impressionist exhibition, "Salon Des Refuses" (rejects f ...

    France was an absolute monarchy. Louis XIV (1643 1715) was the envy of all other rulers in Europe. During his reign he had centralized the government and had encouraged trade and manufacture. His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in. His successors Louis XV (1715 74) and Louis XVI (1774 93) also participated in lengthy and costly conflicts. France had suffered defeat in the Seven Years War against Britain (1756 63). Her army in Europe was crushed by the Prussians.

    Introduction The Allied invasion of France on June 6, 1944 is variously known as D-Day, the Longest Day, Cross-Channel Attack, and probably some others as well. It was the largest single military operation of World War II. Hence, the Normandy beaches are a must stop if you get anywhere close to France. The 50th anniversary celebration in 1994 generated a lot of hype. The recent movie Saving Private Ryan rekindled that interest. However, the landing always held a special niche going back to the event itself. Much like Gettysburg, the Normandy attack has been studied in great detail -- hour by hour, person by person, shot by shot. We'll assume a flight landing in Paris and getting a rental car ...

Allied intelligence had detected the presence of the enemy division too late to alter the landing plan. Only through improvisation and personal courage were the men of two regiments of the 1st Division and one of the 28th at last able to work their way up the bluffs and move slowly inland. Some 50,000 U.S. troops nevertheless made their way ashore on the two beaches before the day was out. American casualties were approximately 6,500, British and Canadian, ...

Because of these similarities, the two revolutions are often assumed to be essentially eastern and western versions of each other. However, the two are fundamentally different in their reason, their rise, progress, termination, and in the events that followed, even to the present. The American Revolution was not primarily fought for independence. Independence was an almost accidental by-product of the Americans attempt to rebel against and remove unfair taxes levied on them by British Parliament. Through propaga ...
