The War That Ended Peace

ID : 924   
« back to classes page
The year 2019 marks the centennial of the Versailles Peace Treaty that ended World War I, and historians and scholars the world over continue to debate the merits of that peace treaty. But what happened before the beginning of World War I that created the need for a peace treaty? Some have even ventured to speculate that it was a war that should never have been instigated, thus there should have been no need for a “peace” treaty. In her study of the events that led up to the onset of war in 1914, Margaret MacMillian gives us a portrait of the early twentieth century: the people, the politicians, the international situation, the what-ifs and maybes, the powder kegs, the spark that set the world onfire for the long war years. We will use the text, The Road to 1914: The War That Ended Peace, (Random House, 2014). Join us for the discussion of what happened, why it happened, and did it have to happen.
