About me

Hey! I'm Zack, 21 and from Frankfurt, Germany. I've lived in the UK for almost six years now and am a huge fan of London. I went to a boarding school near London for sixth form and then did my BA in History at King's College London. Right now, I am doing my MA in the History of Political Thought and Intellectual History at Queen Mary University of London and UCL. I'm really passionate about history and would love to share my passion with you! History is extremely important to understand not just the current political situation but also to understand societal changes over time. As I'm originally from Germany, I'm obviously also fluent in German and would enjoy to help you learning the language. I'm currently learning Spanish so I know how difficult learning a new language can be!

About my sessions

So I'd like to start with finding out what you need and where you need some support. As this will be different for all students, my sessions will not have a clear structure. Generally though I'd focus more on the how over the what; how to tackle an essay question or revision rather than the facts themselves. Using past paper questions we'd go through together to make a basic outline together. Then for the next session I'd ask the student to write an introduction or essay that we could go through together. If a student requires something different though I'd be happy to accommodate that!

Questions Justus has answered

To what extent was the Second World War simply a continuation of the First World War?

While World War I was the major event that led to World War II, it must be said that World War II was a different conflict – both in the causes of the war and in the war aims of Germany and the allies. Causes of the Second World War were not limited to ones resulting from the First World War. There were several other factors leading to the outbreak of World War II, such as: weak politics of Britain and France; the isolationist policy of the USA; and finally, the USSR excluding itself from Europe, thus tipping the balance of power in Germany’s favour. The motives for war were also a defining feature depicting the differences between World War I and II. While Germany had similar war aims – such as Lebensraum – it is clear the ideological aspect was much more present in World War II. Regarding Britain, one could argue along the same lines. In both 1914 and 1939 Britain entered war on a reactionary basis. However, one could argue Britain also entered the Second World War as a way to spread democracy – or to prevent its downfall. Thus, World War II can be seen as more of an ideological conflict – democratic (initially Britain, France) against authoritarian (Germany, Italy, Japan) and, hence, cannot be a resumption of World War I.While World War I was the major event that led to World War II, it must be said that World War II was a different conflict – both in the causes of the war and in the war aims of Germany and the allies.
