I am not sure how many pages or words this assignment requires because it is not listed, 5 pages was an estimate. Students should prepare an outline of your paper. Your subject country must be at the top of your outline. Your outline should be organized topically using the five analysis areas required for the Final Paper. Although your outline does not need to be written in complete sentences, it will be graded for spelling, capitalization, and other relevant grammar. For each area of analysis provide at least four supporting sentences or bulletized comments of pertinent information relevant to the components of each specified area of analysis: Introduction/Geographic and Historical Factors: What aspects of geography influenced your nations participation in the war? What historical ties or antagonisms contributed to your participation? What recent national history, particularly in the 25 years prior to the war led to participation in WWII? Geographic issues such as contested borders, unique natural resources, access to critical sea lanes, ground transportation systems etc. Political Factors: What was your nation’s pre-war form of government? Was it stable? Unstable? What were the major political parties? Who were the leaders of your country at the beginning of the war? At the end? What nations were your allies? What, if any, had been the major impacts of the FIRST World War been on the country? In what ways may political issues have contributed to your participation? If occupied, describe any government in exile, or collaborationist government. Social and Economic Factors: Assess the social structure of your nation. Were there frictions between ethnic or religious groups? What type of economy did your nation have? What were the major economic resources or industries which may have influenced your nations participation? If your nation was a colony of another power at the time of the war, were there independence or nationalist movements? If your nation had previously been the territory of another nation, were there lingering ethnic or political frictions? What impact had the recent Global Depression had on the country, if any? Military Strength and Capabilities: Describe your armed forces at the time that war broke out for your nation. How big were they? Key military leaders? What was their level of modernization? Did they have a particular advantage or disadvantage? What significant actions did they participate in? What was their status by the end of the war? Losses? If your nation was overrun/occupied, did they continue to resist or contribute to the Allied or Axis cause? How? Significant Outcomes/Conclusions: Identify at least four significant outcomes for your nation due to your participation in the war. Focus on the post-war period of about twenty-five years from the end of hostilities for your nation. Some possible considerations would be, did your borders change? How did they change? Did your political system change? How? Did your political alignments change? How? Were there major changes in your social or economic structures? What were they? What were your nation’s civilian and military losses in the war? In summary: What was your relative influence, power, and condition in the world at the end of the war, as compared to the outbreak of hostilities for the nation? Additional Requirements: Include an updated Standard Bibliography as the final page of your outline. This is NOT a copy of your Annotated Bibliography. Be sure to include any additional sources identified since submitting your Annotated Bibliography. You are required to include at least SEVEN sources in your outline. For details on Standard Bibliographic entries, see https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide/citation-guide-1.html or look in the Course Resources Tab under Chicago-Style Citation Quick Guide. A sample bibliographic entry for a journal article looks like this: Satterfield, Susan. “Livy and the Pax Deum.” Classical Philology 111, no. 2 (April 2016): 165–76. Submit your outline in MS word or docx format. Additional Information on Outlines: Many students panic when they are unable to immediately produce an outline for a research paper. In fact, such outlines generally take longer to develop, are started later in the writing process, and remain more malleable than other outlines you have devised. You begin writing an outline after conducting some research, and you should remain open to the new evidence that continuing research provides. You should also act on any hunches you might have about where to look for new information and then expand your outline. As you manage your research project, keep the dynamic character of outlining in mind.” Per the UMGC Online Guide to Writing and Research: “Outlining is just another way to organize your ideas and can be used at every stage of the writing process. Especially in the planning stages, outlining may be informal—a scratch list of points you want to make. Ideas are often simply jotted down in an order that appears to make sense to the writer in thinking about the topic. At a more developed stage, an outline may expand on several aspects of the thesis and controlling idea. A formal outline, on the other hand, may contain complete sentences that expand on the major and minor supporting statements for the clearly delineated thesis statement. How formal and detailed your outline is depends on the demands of the writing task and what kind of writer you are. To summarize, outlining can help you plan and manage your writing assignment in several ways: It helps you organize information. It facilitates sharing information with your peers and your instructor to see if you are on the right track. It helps you think in writing as you are deciding what to say in your first draft” If you are still unfamiliar with outlines, you should also check: https://owl.excelsior.edu/research/outlining/ Traditional Outline Format, modified for HIST465 Introduction: Purpose, background, context for topic.
