This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Why did Germany lose the war? What role did the United States play in winning the war? How did the war’s ending lead to an even greater conflict a generation later? John Maurer explores these questions in a lecture on the dramatic and tragic events of 1918.

John H. Maurer, a Senior Fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, is Alfred Thayer Mahan Professor of Grand Strategy and Sea Power and Distinguished University Professor at the Naval War College.

Presented in collaboration with the Foreign Policy Research Institute


The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024
