Two questions form your final examination — please indicate your answers in two numbered sections:
1. Why was the role of the military so powerful in the periods leading up to the beginning of the first and second World Wars? How did nationalism influence the growth of militarism?
2. What was the relationship between nationalism and the growth of the Romantic movement? Use at least two examples of how Romanticism “embraced” nationalism. You may use either individuals, events or works of art as examples.
