The term will begin with the Stock Market crash of 1929. It will then discuss the efforts of Herbert Hoover and Franklin Roosevelt to combat the Depression. Turning to foreign policy, the lectures will trace the rise of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy in Europe and Japanese aggressions in the Far East. We will discuss the differences in the two theaters of war. We will then follow military strategy and the fighting to the end of the war in 1945.
