Course Description

Our course begins with the inter-war years, 1919-39, and follows American foreign policy, isolationism, and reaction to world events, to the outbreak of war in Europe, to German victories, and the Battle of Britain. In response, the U. S. re-arms and aids Britain. Pearl Harbor plunges the U.S. into war. We will follow the war and formation of policy from early setbacks to the turning of the tide in the Pacific with the Battle of Midway, and in the European theater with the invasion of French North Africa, and aerial bombardment of Germany. We shall cover the Home Front and give necessary attention to the Russian front and Soviet aims, and war in southeast Asia and China. Our emphasis will remain on the American experience in Europe and the Pacific, to the final victories celebrated on V-E Day (May 8, 1945) and V-J Day (August 14, 1945).
