The enormity of World War II in history is staggering. It encompassed 17 different wars, included conflict on every continent, and led to three great holocausts in Germany, China and Russia. Fifty million to 70 million people were killed, more than in any other war or any other event in European history since the Bubonic plague. “World War II permeates history in the 20th century, and it permeates the past, present and future of Western civilizations,” says Victor Davis Hanson. Explore the war through his insights in our six-part lecture series.
