In the first of a two-part series, to continue in spring 2018 with Japan, Rex Rehfeld explains in detail the origins of Isolationism dating from WWI, the Paris Peace Conference, Hitler's rise to power, Roosevelt's election in 1932, and anti-war movements and neutrality acts. The course will cover the Anschluss, Chamberlain's "Peace for Our Time" disgrace, the beginning of war in Europe, the fall of France, and the Battle of Britain. In the later sessions, the discussion will focus on U.S. support of Britain, the isolationist movement in America, and how that changed with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
