A centennial look at the enormously destructive war in Europe with an emphasis on the American involvement.  Arguably World War I was the first modern war, with initial versions of many new weapons which would further develop in the future.  A review of how the conflict dramatically changed the political and territorial landscape of Europe.  Topics will include The Western Front, America-the reluctant ally, Kaiserschlact-Germany’s last offensive, the American home front, and the Treaty of Versailles.

GROUP LEADER: Dr. John Ferriss retired from the University of Mass. Medical School.  He is a long-time history enthusiast and a train buff!  In retirement, he completed a Master of Arts degree in Military History from Norwich University.
