This class will explore the causes, course, and consequences of the Second World War. It will focus largely on the war in Europe, 1939-1945, but give some consideration as well to the conflict in the Pacific between the Allied Powers and the Empire of Japan. Participants can expect to read historical texts and personal accounts of the war. Critical screenings of documentaries and feature (combat) films will provide visual representations of major battles and key developments in this global conflict. Special attention will be given to the titanic struggle on the Eastern Front between the forces of the Third Reich and the Soviet Union.
