Foundation Lecture – World War II: A Retrospective | October 05, 2020 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The world that emerged from the ashes of World War II was fundamentally different from the world prior to the war. The level of death and devastation, particularly to  civilians, far exceeded that from any previous conflict. The marriage of science and technology to the war efforts had produced jet aircraft, long range ballistic missiles, and atomic weapons. The transformation of the United States from an isolationist country to a global super power was unprecedented. This lecture will analyze what happened, how it happened, and why it happened. The extraordinary depth and breadth of events that transpired in World War II makes this period of history endlessly fascinating. This lecture will focus on some of these powerful and unexpected revelations.
