HIS 342I - World War I, 3 credit hours


Prerequisite(s): One 100-level history course
The First World War (1914-1918) was the seminal event of the twentieth century. This course will cover the origins, progress, and consequences of the war. Special emphasis will be placed on the following topics: why the world went to war in 1914; why the people of the “civilized” nations killed each other on an unprecedented scale; how strategy, tactics, and weaponry evolved during the war; what was the social impact of the conflict; and how the war shaped the rest of the century.
