The War to End All Wars: WWI in Four Lectures

Part 4: A Lost Generation

The War not only caused death and destruction to those fighting; the war’s effect on culture and thinking were catastrophic. The war was the end of an era, and to many, the end of one of the great periods of European civilization. Psychology, culture, philosophy- all of these took dramatic turns as a result of the war. This talk will discuss the war and its ending at the Versailles Conference, as well as its after-effects in the cultural, economic, and political spheres, which would ultimately result in the outbreak of war only twenty years after the close of the War to End All Wars.

Hamish Lutris is an Assistant Professor of History at Capital Community College.

This month's selection is Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly.

“Kelly’s compelling first novel follows three women through the course of World War II and beyond. Despite some horrific scenes, this is a page-turner demonstrating the tests and triumphs civilians faced during war, complemented by Kelly’s vivid depiction of history and excellent characters.” (Publishers Weekly)

This month's selection is All Our Wrong Todays by Elan Mastai.

“In this imaginative debut, Tom Barren’s version of 2016 is a technological utopia based on a model popularized by 1950s science fiction. There are flying cars, robot maids, jet packs, teleportation, ray guns, and space vacations. Unfortunately, an accident causes Tom to travel to an alternate timeline, socially and technologically backward - in other words, our own 2016.” (Publishers Weekly)
