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.

At the end of the lecture as Professor Childers is recounting the story of the "Black Cat" he mentioned the reunion of the families in Regensburg in 1995. In that ihe used the pronoun "we" on several occasions which leads me to wonder if he was at the reunion and is in fact relatd to one of the men of the "Black Cat. Just an observation.
