Franco assumed political and military control and became head of government and head of state.
Links Consequences of a large nuclear war Following a large U. The smoke is quickly spread around the world and forms a dense smoke layer around both Hemispheres; the smoke will remain in the stratosphere for many years and act to block sunlight from reaching the surface of the Earth.
New studies predict this level of stratospheric smoke deposition will still be possible even after planned reductions in U. Some fraction of the remaining deployed and operational U.
Hundreds of large cities in the U. The smoke will remain there for many years to block and absorb sunlight. Nightly killing frosts would occur and prevent food from being grown.
Growing seasons would be virtually eliminated for many years. Massive destruction of the protective ozone layer would also occur, allowing intense levels of dangerous UV light to penetrate the atmosphere and reach the surface of the Earth. Massive amounts of radioactive fallout would be generated and spread both locally and globally.
The targeting of nuclear reactors would significantly increase fallout of long-lived isotopes. Gigantic ground-hugging clouds of toxic smoke would be released from the fires; enormous quantities of industrial chemicals would also enter the environment.
It would be impossible for many living things to survive the extreme rapidity and degree of changes in temperature and precipitation, combined with drastic increases in UV light, massive radioactive fallout, and massive releases of toxins and industrial chemicals.
Already stressed land and marine ecosystems would collapse. Unable to grow food, most humans would starve to death. Even humans living in shelters equipped with many years worth of food, water, energy, and medical supplies would probably not survive in the hostile post-war environment.From the last few months of through the summer of , the conflicts among nations grew into true World War.
The East African campaign and Western Desert campaign both began during this. World War I occurred between July and November 11, By the end of the war, over 17 million people had been killed, including over , American troops. While the causes of the war are infinitely more complicated than a simple timeline of events, and are still debated and discussed to this day, the list below provides an overview of the most frequently-cited events that led to war.
WeCommemorate is a series of challenges for teachers to use with students to commemorate Australia's involvement in the First World War.
These project-based challenges have been designed to engage students from Early Stage 1 to Stage 5 in the production of creative multimedia works and to develop 21st century learning skills. They also address syllabus outcomes and content in history, English. Depth Study 3 Australians at War: World Wars I and II (, ) The making of the modern world from to It was a period of industrialisation and rapid change in the ways people lived, worked and thought.
Below is a brief video overview of the background to the American entry into the war and its impact on the Allied forces Wednesday,October Impact of the Russian Withdraw and its Impact 1. Overview booklet. World Bank, Washington, DC.
