Section Information for Fall 2022

The Second World War raged from the late 1930s until August of 1945. By the time Japan signed the final Instrument of Surrender, more than 60 million people—the majority of them civilians—had lost their lives in the fighting. The war raged across the globe, involving all the world’s major powers, and combat occurred on four continents, in the sky, on the oceans, and under the seas. The war changed geopolitics in ways that reverberated throughout the twentieth century and continue today.

This course traces the causes, course, and outcome of the greatest calamity in human history. It examines the political, social, and economic issues that led to war; the home fronts; war leadership, diplomacy, and grand strategy; the Holocaust; the political and social legacies of the conflict; and the way that nations remember and commemorate the war.
