This Exploration Elective Course focuses on the military strategy of WWII. You analyze how the Germans conquered most of Europe while being outnumbered, and discuss the relationship between technology and doctrine from 1939 to 1945. You investigate the post-war ‘history-production,’ studying how political needs and goals shaped what is considered the history of World War II.
