ID : 647   
« back to classes page
One hundred years ago, on November 11, 1918, World War I came to an end leaving in its wake a seething mass of unresolved issues, problems, and challenges.  This course will look at how the conflict started, how it was fought, identify war aims, assess strategies, identify winners and losers, and attempt to debunk the vast body of myth and misconception that continues to surround this war.  We will focus on Europe as well as the war at sea, in the air, and in the colonies that made it a world war.  The 100th anniversary is a good time to reassess this defining event of the 20th century.
