HIST 2300 - World War II (3CR)


(3L) The Second World War is, arguably, the most significant military, political and social event of the Twentieth Century. The millions of military and civilian deaths, the destruction of infrastructure and the postwar Allied military governments in Germany and Japan all affected the way that the world was shaped. In this class we will examine the Second World War including the political and social upheaval in Europe following World War One that made possible the rise of National Socialism in Germany and Bolshevism in Russia. The expansionist goals of Imperial Japan and the resulting Pacific war will also be discussed as will the Holocaust and the Nazis’ war against the Jews of Europe.
