HIST 3150-01 Europe, 1914-1945

Political Cartoon from the first half of the 20th-century depicting a German classroom

Professor Tom Taylor

This course will examine the global developments and impacts of the wars that shattered the world in the first half of the twentieth century.  It will examine the experiences of these conflicts both through the strategies of the leaders and the experiences of the men and women who served in the trenches and factories.  It will consider how new scholarship is challenging us to rethink old understandings of their causes and consequences.
