Our world was created by the Second World War. It emerged from the nexus of mass mobilization, industrialized warfare, and racialized extremism. Its end ushered in the atomic age, the Cold War, and the United Nations. This course explores why the Second World War happened, how it unfolded, how it was experienced on battlefield and home-front; how it affected minorities (like Jews, gay men, Japanese-Americans); and how it has shaped our own time.
