30. THE VANQUISHED: WHY THE FIRST WORLD WAR FAILED TO END, 1917-1923

Generously supported by

For a large part of Europe, 11 November 1918 has no meaning. Between 1917 and 1923 more Europeans died in violent conflict than British, French and Americans combined during the First World War. Professor Robert Gerwarth will examine the factors behind the revolutions, pogroms, mass expulsions and major military clashes that devastated central, eastern, and southeastern Europe in the ‘interwar’ years and their impact on Europe’s future.
