World War I -- the Great War -- 100 years after with Tom DeStefano
mar. 13 novembre à 01:00
11:00AM on November 11th 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. This program will cover the causes of World War I and the opposing alliances—the Triple Entente and the Triple Alliance. We will consider how the United States, originally a neutral nation, got involved in World War I, the Zimmerman Telegram and the role of trench warfare and how new military weapons—submarines, tanks, machine guns, tanks, and aeroplanes affected the outcome of the Great War and conflicts to follow. President Woodrow Wilson’s policy of non-intervention and peacemaking attempts during and after the Treaty of Versailles and the lost generation of German, French and English men will round out the program. Tom DeStefano teaches American History at Bergen Community College. This program is free. No registration is necessary. Seats are on a "first come" basis.
