The Second World War in Europe

Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor. World War II, arguably the most destructive war in history, attracts great amateur interest. This interest has to some extent mythologized certain aspects of the war, its causes, and its legacy. This seminar will examine the war itself in Europe and its contested understandings with a special focus on the experience on the combatant during the conflict. May be counted as an elective toward the major in history. III.W, V.1
