Off-Campus Events

Boston Public Library

Understanding France's Response to the Events of 1914
Thursday, October 8, 2015, 6 to 8 p.m.
West End Branch
Professor Michael Neiberg of the U.S. War College gives a talk on France and World War I. Using memoirs, letters and diaries, he challenges the myth that an enthusiastic Europe was anxious for war to satisfy historical national grudges and that World War I was inevitable. Instead, according to Professor Neiberg, it was a war that most European peoples did not want, it ran out of control, and it produced results that are still with us a century later.
Reception to follow.
