Course Title: EUROPE IN THE 20TH CENTURY
Europe on the eve of WWI is presented to show how it was drawn into the conflict; the war is discussed and the Treaty of Versailles is closely examined to discover if later European developments were directly traceable to that treaty. England and France are studied to see why appeasement (1938) was their only solution to international pressure. The rise of fascism in Italy, Germany, and Spain and the establishment of communism in Russia are also discussed. The course ends with the outbreak of WWII.
