World War II was the largest and most consequential event in recent world history, affecting in diverse and often unimaginatively agonizing ways the bulk of the world’s population. Employing as our major text A War To Be Won, by Williamson Murray and Allan Millett, we will study and discuss the causes, considerations, conduct and consequences of this overwhelming event. Particular emphasis will be placed on the strategic, political and moral issues the war pressed on the world then, and continues to do so to this day.
