World War 1 History | West Coast Baptist College

World War 1 History

Students in this course will examine the origins, conduct and consequences of the Great War, the major strategic decisions, as well as the intertwining history on the Homefront of the combatant nations. This course will also examine the conduct of the war, considering how technology, propaganda, and mobilization of the civilian populace helped make this history’s first “total war.” Students will analyze changing war aims, the providence of God, the impact of the Russian revolution, and why all attempts to bring the combatants to the bargaining table failed prior to 1918. In the final section, this course will examine the peace-making process at Versailles, some of the myths surrounding the peace settlements, and how this conclusion to the “war to end all wars” helped set the stage for a second world war.
