13. The Origins of World War I

France Since 1871 (HIST 276)

The traditional, diplomatic history of World War I is helpful in understanding how a series of hitherto improbable alliances come to be formed in the early years of the twentieth century. In the case of France and Russia, this involves a significant ideological compromise. Along with the history of imperial machinations, however, World War I should be understood in the context of the popular imagination and the growth of nationalist sentiment in Europe.

In which John Green teaches you about World War 2, as it was lived on the home front. You'll learn about how the war changed the country as a whole, and changed how Americans thought about their country. John talks about the government control of war production, and how the war probably helped to end the Great Depression. A broader implementation of the income tax, the growth of large corporations, and the development of the West Coast as a manufacturing center were also results of the war. The war positivelychanged the roles of women and African Americans, but it was pretty terrible for the Japanese Americans who were interred in camps. In short, World War II changed America's role in the world, changed American life at home, and eventually spawned the History Channel.

But America had its fair share of shame, such as when the country turned away Jewish refugees on the St. Louis who would die in the Holocaust:
During World War II, there was also a painful period of Japanese relocation and internment throughout the country:

World War II, A War for Resources: Crash Course World History #220

In which John Green teaches you about World War II, and some of the causes behind the war. In a lot of ways, WWII was about resources, and especially about food. The expansionist aggression of both Germany and Japan were in a lot of ways about resources. There were other reasons, to be sure, but the idea that the Axis needed more food can't be ignored.

The Trojan War - Battles in the Bronze Age - Extra History - #2

You can get Total War Saga: Troy for FREE, today, August 13th by following this link: ! Thank you to Creative Assembly and to Total War for making this series possible!

So since we uncovered Troy then we should know how the ancient battles described in the Iliad actually went down right? It's a little more complicated than that. Unfortunately, most of what we understand we've had to piece together from only a few surviving artifacts or writings. But even writings from Homer do inform us of some aspects of the bronze age battlefield. And also informs us of some of the bigger anachronisms hiding in the Iliad. Would Achilles really just abandon his chariot instead of using it to run people down? And was there a real Trojan horse?!

World War 1 VS World War 2 - How Do They Compare?

HOW DO THE TWO WARS COMPARE?

People have been fighting wars since the first wooden spears were carved thousands of years ago. Estimates for the total number killed in war throughout all of human history ranges from 150 million to 1 billion people, and according to the New York Times, at least 108 million have been killed in wars in the twentieth century alone. With the continuing advances we see in technology, the way we fight wars is constantly changing. Today we’ll be looking at how two of the biggest wars in history compare, in this episode of The Infographics Show: World War 1 vs World War 2.

France: The Dark Years 1940-1944 by Julian Jackson. An absolutely phenomenal work which despite the name covers everything from the late 1920s to just after the war. Talks in depth about the political climate which weakened France and her response to Germany and the war. It's an academic text so not the most accessible, though.


To Hell and Back: Europe 1914-1949 by Ian Kershaw. A great and accessible book which gives an overview of Europe during the period. Be aware that it jumps about quite a bit so don't expect entire chapters devoted to one nation. Good breakdowns of the general events and gives some much needed context to France during the 1930s.

The Roads to World War I: Crash Course European History #32

Much has been written about what exactly caused World War I. As befits a true global war, the reality is that there isn't a single cause. There aren't even three causes. There are a vast array of causes. Today we'll get into just a few of those causes, including the complex system of alliances in Europe, the myriad military conflicts that played out in the years and decades leading up to the war, and the event that many point to as the beginning: the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Why doesn't this series use the Nazi swastika symbol? James explains:
____________

European economies were so closely connected that some people expected they have to avoid another world war or destroy their finances, but in fact World War I had taught them how to prepare for just such a scenario. Germany, France, and Great Britain all invested in their military before war broke out. When evaluating these economies to see how war would affect them, we look at four main factors: GDP, population, territorial extent, and per capita income. Broadly, this helps us determine how resilient, expansive, self-sufficient, and developed a nation is. All of those factors determine how a nation must conduct its war. For example, the vast territorial holdings of the British Empire meant that they had vast resources to draw upon but needed a long time to mobilize them, which helped Germany determine that they needed to strike fast and win big if they hoped to win the war before Britain's full resources came into play. Japan also estimated that they could win a war in the Pacific if they managed to win before the US had been involved for more than 6 months. These calculations drove the early strategies of the Axis powers, but the participation of the US would later prove to be a crucial factor.
____________

BONUS! Economies of Japan and China before WWII:

GDP (Bn USD-1990)
Japan - 169.4
Japanese Colonies - 62.9
China (exc. Manchuria): 320.5

POPULATION (mil)
Japan - 71.9
Japanese Colonies: 59.8
China (exc. Manchuria): 411.7

TERRITORY (thous sq.km)
