New Directions in the History of the Second World War
Now that we have emerged from the shadow of the First World War centenary, many military historians are beginning to turn their attention towards the study of the Second World War. This panel will discuss the past, present and future of the literature of the Second World War, providing us insight into what we know and what might lie ahead for historians of 1939-1945. The panel will be hosted by Dr. Geoffrey Hayes, a Professor in the Department of History at the University of Waterloo.
