Second Eight-Week Course: World War II (HIST 258)
Published Date:January 24, 2017
History 258, 20th-C. World to Midcentury: The Second World War, 1933-48 (3 credit hours, M/W/F: 11-12:50, 8 weeks)
The second global catastrophe of the 20th century resulted in some 60 million deaths, close to 3% of the world's population. Before it was over, the Second World War left virtually no home untouched and irrevocably changed the course of world history. The scale of its wanton slaughter necessitated the coining of a new term - genocide - to depict the willful murder of whole peoples and races. Beginning with Adolf Hitler's rise to power and the near-parallel outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War, this course traces the political, military, social, and economic history of the Second World War in its major theaters: The Western, Eastern, Pacific, Chinese, and North African.
