Mark Polelle, Ph.D., chair and professor of the department of history and pre-law at The University of Findlay, recently completed “The Modern Scholar: Total War: World War II and its Lasting Legacy,” a lecture available on Audible.com.
Polelle examines the origins, major events and consequences of the Second World War. Taking into account the First World War’s effect on politics, economics, culture and the international system as a whole, the course illustrates the ideologies at play as communism, fascism and democratic capitalism came into direct conflict.
“The Modern Scholar: Command and Control” by Polelle also is available on Audible. It was released in December 2010.
Throughout these lectures, Polelle imagines a number of “what ifs,” including what would have happened if Hitler had not invaded the Soviet Union, and concludes with a consideration of the legacy of World War II.
