Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:
Essay Topic 1
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 2
Hitler was expanding his terror bombing to other English cities. Warning those population centers would give away their capability to break the German codes. No warnings were given. Later, when coded messages are broken about Hitler's imminent invasion of Russia, the intelligence community warns Russia but is not taken seriously because the BSC will not reveal their source. Discuss the following:
1. Is it moral to hold back information to save innocent civilian lives in order to keep Germany from knowing that its codes were compromised?
2. Many people would argue that it is for the greater good that some people had to suffer (i.e., those in cities who are bombed without warning). Does the concept of the "greater good" apply in this situation? Why or why not.
3. Do you think Russia could have done things any differently even if they had been warned about Hitler's imminent invasion? Explain fully. (This may require some research).
Essay Topic 3
King George V makes it clear he will not leave England if the Germans invade and will not collaborate with any German puppet government. Discuss the following:
1. Do you think King George's actions are admirable? Why or why not?
2. Research the monarchs of several other European countries and compare/contrast the actions of three other countries to that of King George in response to the threats from the Germans.
3. How do you think you would have responded as a King/Queen were Hitler to invade your country? Explain fully.
