|Meet the Author - Gerhard Weinberg presents "The Legacies of World War I" |
Tuesday, December 2, 2014
5:00 pm Reception | 6:00 pm Program | 7:00 pm Book Signing
US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center
Preeminent World War II historian Gerhard L. Weinberg presents on the legacies of World War I. Many consider his monumental A World at Arms: A Global History of World War II as close to the definitive history of the war as a single scholar can produce. His two volumes on Hitler's foreign policy, 1933-39, have recently been republished. He is also the author of Visions of Victory: The Hopes of Eight World War II Leaders and many other books and essays. He has won honorary doctorates as well as many prestigious fellowships & prizes for his scholarship, among them the Pritzker Military Library Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military History (2009). He holds a PhD from the University of Chicago and taught at the Universities of Chicago, Kentucky, Michigan, and North Carolina. Maybe most impressively, he trained dozens of PhD students in twentieth century European and German history, who are now populating history departments around the country.
Presented in partnership with UNO's Center Austria, The UNO History Department, and the Friends of the UNO Earl K. Long Library. Light reception precedes the presentation. Reservations are requested. For more information please call 504-528-1944 x 229.
