100th Anniversary of the Armistice: Origins of the First World War: Lessons and Legacies

Although the Second World War tends to loom larger in memory and popular media, the First World War significantly shaped history and still informs our thinking and actions today. We will go back in time to examine the events of the summer of 1914, and discuss the enthusiasm that so many in Europe expressed when the war broke out. We’ll analyze the primary causes of the war and trace some of the major military, social and economic developments that unfolded over its four years, both at the front and at home.
