Video: Crash Course European History /  WWI's Civilians, the Homefront, and an Uneasy Peace: Crash Course European History #34

 

Another John Green video, dealing with what was happening at the home fronts during the war.  “World War I was a total war for millions of people in Europe. Many men were enlisted in the fighting, but the war work had implications for the daily lives of a huge number of Europeans. Women entered the workforce in huge numbers, and for a lot of people, the battles raged through their towns, cities, and even their homes.

 

In addition to learning about the home fronts of the war, we're going to look at how the war ended, and how the Paris Peace Conference and the treaties that resulted did little to heal the societal wounds of the war, and in many ways set the stage for the next big war.”
