An introduction to the history of the origins and course of the second world war.
History 338 covers World War II in Europe, but it’s not a conventional military or political course. It begins with the Paris Peace Conference at the end of World War I and goes beyond 1945 to define some of the consequences of World War II that shaped the postwar world, including the Marshall Plan. This ambitious, reading-intensive course includes a wide range of recent articles that shape current historical discussion. Although it addresses military and political events, approximately half of the readings concern social and cultural history and historiography.
