- First World War
The purpose of this website is to provide a summary overview of the First World War. Necessarily a long-term undertaking - and approaching ten years in the making - a significant amount of material remains to be covered. Whole aspects of the conflict are light on material at present - rest assured, this is not deliberate: in time the intent is that it should all find its place on the site.
- The Great War: Evaluating the Treaty of Versailles
By studying a variety of primary sources, maps, and supporting documents concerning the post-war peace process, students will develop a context for evaluating whether the treaty was a viable, fair one, and for considering some of the complex questions this issue raises about the historical causality and responsibility. The lesson fits within a larger unit on World War I, and some prior knowledge of the causes and events of the war is assumed.
