History of World War II [C]
History of World War II This course examines the origins, nature, and impact of the Second World War. Beginning with a survey of the Great War and its aftermath, it traces the onset of World War II through the eyes of its many participants. As an international history of the war, this course covers all military theaters, devoting roughly equal time to operations in Europe and the Pacific. It also examines the war's impact on civilian populations (including the Holocaust) and the manner in which the conflict transformed the economic, social, and political arenas for the major combatants.
