  • Great Powers In The 17th And 18th Centuries - 1,510 words
    Great Powers in the 17th and 18th Centuries Great Powers in the 17th and 18th Centuries In the 17th and 18th centuries, Great Britain, France, and the Hapsburg Empire were all competing for the fate of Europe. France, in particular, was caught between being a continental power or a world power; taking control of the Rhine and most of Central Europe, or taking control of The New World. Frances primary goal at the time was for control of the Rhine, but this goal was not without obstacles. Great Britains main concern was to keep the balance of power in Europe on their side, while expanding overseas. The Hapsburg Empires goals were dealing with conquering the Holy Roman Empire and the Germanic s ...

  • Napoleon I - 1,286 words
    Napoleon I Napoleon I Napoleon was born August 15, 1769 in Ajaccio, Corsica.

They were the first ones on the beach and the last ones to leave. They carried no weapons except for a combat knife used for cutting, and crimping the fuses of their explosives. Some say that you would have to be "half nuts and half fish" to join the UDT. But, besides being courageous and saving the lives of many a thankful marine(although they will not admit it) the U ...
