History

All of the below essays have been corrected at undergraduate level at a leading University. In order to avoid plagiarism at College level I have removed all references here on this site. This is by no means an attempt to pass off these ideas as original or as my own. Where I have used substantial ideas I have tried to include the original writer name within the text to enable students to find the original text to be read and be enjoyed for themselves. My specialized areas are American foreign policy, Vietnam and the Nazi regime.
