From Napoleon to Hitler. The Road to Total War 1792-1945.

Tanja B√ľhrer

PULS

The seminar will analyze the radicalization of warfare from the Napoleonic age to the Second World War. We discuss a variety of topics including the revolution of warfare, the changing character of propaganda, ideology, economies and international law. We critically discuss the concept of total war and try to define the footprint of modern wars. This includes the interaction of radicalization and restriction of armed conflicts.
