Fifty and Better Winter Session

The Long War: World War I and II

WWI began with an act of terrorism. WWII ended with the dropping of two atomic bombs.  Though an interval of 19 years divides them, future historians will likely evaluate these global wars as one long war. This class will explore the causes, conduct and consequences of global war in the beginning of the 20th century.
