This course examines one of the greatest conflicts in human history, World War II. Between 1937 and 1945, 55 million people perished. It was a series of interrelated conflicts; no continent was left untouched, no ocean or sea unaffected.
* The war led to the eclipse of European power and the emergence of the United States and the Soviet Union as global superpowers. * The war ushered in the atomic age. * The war set a stage for the most grisly crimes ever committed in the long course of Western civilization. * The war led to national liberation from Europe's colonial empires around the world.
In short, World War II defined an epoch in human history, an epoch from which we are beginning to emerge, but an epoch with stains that will not fade.
