Essay Topics

Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Without Adolf Hitler's rise to power, WWII may never have occurred--at least on the European front; therefore, an understanding of the state of Germany at that time is essential to understanding many of the references in the book. Discuss the following:

1. Research and write an informative essay on the state of Germany during the 2 decades prior to the outbreak of WWII. What is the economy like? What are the major political parties? What do they stand for? What is the make-up of the German society as far as religious, racial and class?

Essay Topic 2

Roosevelt had to convince the American public to support England. Supply lines had to remain open, and England needed destroyers and other war equipment. This placed Roosevelt in an awkward position because he was running for re-election and couldn't openly be pro-war. Discuss the following:

1. What does it say about presidential power that Roosevelt could not just hand over money and equipment to England?

2. Do you think Roosevelt should have allowed the upcoming election to influence his public stance on the war? Why or why not?

3. Research the attitude of the people of the United States towards the early part of the war going on in Europe. Did they think it was any of their business? Why or why not? What was the general consensus about entering the war on the side of Great Britain?

Essay Topic 3

Churchill realized there was no way to force Roosevelt's hand in entering the war. The declaration could only come from Congress. Discuss the following:

1. Why do you think the writers of the Constitution made it so that Congress has to be the branch of government to declare war?

2. What do you think are a few justifiable reasons to declare war on another country? Do you think the United States was justified in declaring war on Germany? Why or why not.

3. Describe how, according to the book A Man Called Intrepid: The Secret War, Roosevelt helps England as much as possible until the American people and Congress decide to enter the war on the side of the Allies.
