Lecture 13 - The Origins of World War I

This video was recorded at HIST 276 - France Since 1871. The traditional, diplomatic history of World War I is helpful in understanding how a series of hitherto improbable alliances come to be formed in the early years of the twentieth century. In the case of France and Russia, this involves a significant ideological compromise. Along with the history of imperial machinations, however, World War I should be understood in the context of the popular imagination and the growth of nationalist sentiment in Europe. Reading assignment: Sowerwine, Charles. France since 1870: Culture, Politics and Society, pp. 88-93.
