We will begin with details of several crucial episodes of World War I, such as the Dardanelles-Gallipoli campaigns of 1915 and the naval blockades in the north Atlantic. Post-war consequences, including contemporary issues, will comprise most of the course. The half decade after 1918 featured continuing con- flict in Ireland, russia, turkey, and elsewhere, as well as diplomacy that
resulted in new nations and borders. The long-term consequences include fascism, the u.s.s.r., the post-otto- man Middle east, the second World War, and deep damage to optimism for human progress.
Although it is intended as a sequel to the spring 2014 course on World War I, an overview of the war years 1914-1918, first-time students are welcome, because we will begin each specific
topic with a brief refresher of relevant background material.
Class Format: lecture and discussion
Readings: (highly recommended but not required) Paris 1919: Six Months That Changed the World by Margaret MacMil- lan (random house, 2001, 2003).
Dale Martin teaches history at MSU- Bozeman, with special interest in the First World War and its consequences.  He believes the centennial of the war years offers opportunities to study the conflict as arguably the most influential episode of the 20th Century for the world centered on Europe and the Atlantic.
