This Two Day Conference. ‘Armageddon: The Second World War in Comparative Perspective’ includes material on the First World War from The Western Front Association Hon President Gary Sheffield comparing the 1944-45 campaign with 1916-18 anD Dr Jenny Macleod speaking on lessons from 2014-18.
The Second World War was not a standalone conflict (or rather series of conflicts). It was part of a continuum of warfare that stretched back into the past and forward into the future. It can be seen as both the culmination of one particular type of conflict and the beginning of another one; as the central event in a short twentieth century that lasted from 1914 to 1991; as the second stage of a European-focused conflict that began at Sarajevo and ended at Potsdam 31 years later; or as the prelude to the Cold War.
