Course Description

This course will take a look at the Battle of Waterloo. By looking at the causes for, and result of, this battle between the forces of Napoleon and a European alliance led by the English Duke of Wellington, students will discover what the long-ranging impact of Napoleon's defeat meant for Europe. The results created an immediate resurgence of conservatism which led to a counter-resurgence of liberalism and nationalism, revolutions, and nation building throughout Europe. This course will not be a study of the battle in the military sense, although military strategy may be briefly discussed, but will instead be an analysis of the political forces churning in Europe that surfaced with the eruption of the French Revolution on July 14, 1789, and how those forces, many of them conflicting, spread throughout the continent to create the tensions that led to the "Great War" in 1914.  Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion
