This is part of a book that I am constructing for the course Changing Nature of Warfare .
This is chapter 3, of my book, on changing Nature of Sea Warfare. This should be good enough for students to read and learn about the importance of continuity and change.
There are details on methods of warfare changing at Sea from World War 2 to the Falklands:
Battle of the Atlantic,
Battle of the Pacific including, Pearl Harbour, Battle of the Coral Sea and the Battle for Midway
The Falklands Conflict
Then a summary of change and continuity.
A new way of teaching battles, by getting the students of a GCSE class to imagine that they are in charge of the army and getting them to think of how they would commit the German forces. Then having information on how the German's achieved the feat in 1941. The lesson is developed for Edexcel iGCSE classes.
This is a part of my book, which I will be releasing in the near future.
This focuses on Land Battles.
With focus on battles of World War 2, the Middle East, and Guerilla Warfare.
With the following battles:
Invasion of Poland
Invasion of the Low countries and France
Battle of the Bulge
The Six Day War
The War of Yom Kippur
First Gulf War
The Second Gulf War
There is even a section detailing change and continuity.
This is a lesson on the Civil Rights era and is designed to do a quick and strong recap on the civil rights movement of the 1950-60s.
A starter picture task,
An animated chronological recap of key events over the era,
A list of the events,
An animated chronological recap of the government and what they do.
This is a G.C.S.E. lesson on the consequences of Dr King. I could not find much on line, so I built this myself.
It includes starters, reading material, lesson tasks, and homework. Enjoy!
Even some questions on the Black Panthers, Trump and Obama.
Everything on the League of Nations, designed for Cambridge International but could easily be adapted for most subjects at A level and As Level.
It is full of homework, tasks, sources and reading tasks.
I would advise the use of computers for your students for these lessons.
Changing Nature of Warfare 1918 - 2011
I have updated and written a first draft, which has been partially edited, and I hope to sell this as a book, and will be releasing this soon as possible. With a student book, teachers book and a bundle with the book and a large number of lessons.
This first draft will also be published and released on Amazon in the near future.
This book intends to give as much information as possible about the history of Warfare and relate it to the Igcse Edexcel exam board.

Finally, an animated break down of Hitler’s rise to power, and him taking over each event, with each event linked to the government.
