More has been written about the Second World War than about any other event in human history; it is also the most analyzed, reported, recorded, photographed, memorialized and filmed event in human history. A truly “world” war, more than fifty nations declared formal belligerency in a struggle which lasted six years in Europe and even longer in the Pacific. In America, about sixteen million men and women served during the war; all told, more than 100 million took up arms. This course will examine a representative selection of writings and films focused on the Second World War. It is cross-disciplinary in nature, implementing scholarly approaches from history, geography, literature, film, biography, journalism and memoir.
