Historians consider WWI to be the first "total" war. We examine what that means, as well as the effects that a war of this sort had on combatants and the combatant nations of Europe. We also look at the effects of the peace process that ended the war, and its implications for WWII (and for contemporary global trouble spots). Reading handouts include short essays, war poetry, and snippets from war memoirs; also included are some film clips.

Lou Ann Lange became interested in WWI after visiting Verdun and the Verdun Ossurary 10 years ago. She has been reading widely on this subject ever since. Periodically she teaches a course on this subject at Clarkson University.
