In this class, we will explore World War 1, World War 2, the Cold War, and the rise of the superpowers in the 20th Century. We will examine the causes of the First World War and how alliances between countries caused the first "global war".

From there, we will look at how the after effects of World War 1 planted the seed that became World War 2. From there we will look at the post World War 2 division of Germany, the creation of NATO and the Warsaw Pact and the effects of the Cold War. This class is a combination of lectures, and documentary video clips, as well as discussion.

Spend a few moments perusing through discussion topics on various online forums posted by members of each group, and you’ll see what I mean. This particular divide, like so many others, is all too apparent..."

"...While neither ‘Dunkirk’ nor ‘Darkest Hour’ will in all likelihood achieve the box-office success enjoyed by today’s comic-book inspired blockbusters, I strongly believe that in 20 or 30 years’ time, both of these films will still be viewed and discussed by students trying to understand a period in history that will be as distant to them as World War I is to us today, while their superhero-based competitors will be as irrelevant to future audiences as 1950’s B-movie science fiction is to today’s viewing public..."
