    Post WW2 German history is fascinating...

    there's the obvious stuff like the Cold War, Berlin Blockade, building of Berlin War (people's attempts to get past it), establishment of the DDR (politics, everyday life there, Stasi, FDJ...)

    then there's the immediate post war issues - involvement of GIs with German women (and their resulting kids - although difficult to research, especially as much of its auf Deutsch), refugees from East Prussia etc., the economic situation (currency reform in 1948) blah blah blah

    That's a bit of food for thought!

    I would think Post Germany after ww2 would be interesting enough to do and its easy to get information on.

    Good luck, what was history like at as level as i hope to take it on next year.

    Thank you

    im definatly going towards post war germany now i think....

    AS Level history was alright i think, i did a sources paper on Russia in Revolution, and essays paper on the Rise of Fascism in Italy and a mix on Nazi Germany 1933 - 1939. Im worried about the idea of having to type up a 4000 word essay in 4 hours, im a slow typer!

    Sounds good,very interesting.

    Do you plan to do anything at Uni with History or even go to University?

    If your very slow get someone else to type it or else get yourself one of them programs where u talk to the computer through a microphone and the computer types it for you, the only boring part is at the start, you have to give the computer a match of ur voice by reading ALOT of words into the computer.

    i was thinking of doing history at uni, but i think now id much rather do politics. I may see if i could do a mix though.

    The essay will just be typing, under supervision of teachers
