World War I —
07:20 PM to 10:00 PM T — Robinson B222
The Great War of 1914 to 1918, also known as World War I, in its scope, its violence and, above all, in its totality, ushered in a century of global war. Never before had a war absorbed so many combatants. Never before had so many nations been involved in the fighting. Never before had the slaughter been so comprehensive and indiscriminate. Never before had the participants staked so much for so little. World War I changed the face of modern Europe and the World. The war paved the way for the Russian Revolution, World War II and the global turmoil that would consume the world for the rest of the century. It is the purpose of this course to examine the History of World War I to determine the significance and meaning of the conflict for this generation of Americans.
