Grades : 11,12,PG
The World at War covers the two greatest conflicts in human history: World Wars I and II. The class moves from the origins of WWI to the rise of the Nazi party in the 1920s and the beginning of World War II in 1939. It also covers many of the great battles, elements of the Holocaust, espionage and covert operations. Woven into our study is a focus upon what role these events have played in determining conflicts in the world today. Primary texts are John Keegan's Histories of the Two World Wars, as well as original film footage of battles and a series of supplementary readings.
Students are automatically enrolled in World War II for winter term.
