In its scope, breadth, and level of destruction, The Great War came as a shock to those who lived through it. Like nothing seen before, it initiated a massive change in how our civilization views itself. With stunning clarity, Professor Liulevicius examines the background of the war, its major theaters, the phenomenon of trench warfare, the impact of total war on our civilization, and the war's tragic aftermath. These 36 lectures, at best, touch the surface of the topic; each is an invitation to further study, with notes and copious recommendations for supplemental reading. Nonetheless, as Professor Liulevicius suggests, we cannot understand our own times if we don't grapple with this seminal conflict in Western civilization.
