The Costs of War

Lecture no. 30 from the course: World War II: A Military and Social History

 The Costs of War

Taught by Professor Thomas Childers | 24 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

In this concluding lecture, Professor Childers evaluates the outcome of the war, its meaning in both a global political and military context, and its historical significance. But its real focal point is on an appraisal of the enormous costs of war at a human level, illustrated by the experiences of a single American family.

A complete overview of the conflict, Professor Childers explains the subject such that he transmits his own interest in this subject. Wow! I loved this course.
