The Emergence of a Super-Power : The USA, 1914 - 41

Today, from 1 to 3 o'clock, I am attending the above course of talks. This is part of my process of fitting my French history studies into a wider context.

This is a course by run by  the University of York's Centre for Lifelong Learning. It started Thursday last week and runs for ten weeks, until end of June. The lecturer is David Beeston. He has been giving a series of courses on 20th Century history over some years. I have attended two previous courses, firstly on World War One, then on the inter-war period of 1918 to 1939.

Last week's talk was on "The USA enters the First World War, 1914 - 17", so a lot of background and scene-setting. With 17 people signed onto the course, it was very well attended. The two hours passed extremely quickly.
