War of the World – Axis and Allies Summer Camp
WWI and WWII seminar using strategy games of Axis and Allies
Program Description

Historian Professor Niall Ferguson argues that in the last century there were not in fact two World Wars and a Cold War, but a single Hundred Years’ War. It was not nationalism that powered the conflicts of the century, but empires. It was not ideologies of class or the advent of socialism driving the century, but race. Ultimately, ethnic conflict underpinned 20th-century violence. Finally, it was not the West that triumphed as the century progressed – in fact, power slowly and steadily migrated towards the new empires of the East.

War of the World Seminar is about the conflict of the twentieth-century and the descent of the West. Seeks to establish a connection between industrial and technological progress and violence in the modern era, arguing that the twentieth century has been the most violent period in history in spite of unprecedented achievements.
