Hist 12: Wed., 4 May

Today, we reviewed the timeline for the start of the Second World War.  We then divided the era into the inter-war years, the first half where the Axis is winning, and the second half when the Allies are winning.  We discussed the notion of strategy vs. tactics and looked at how doctrine influences the types of equipment a military needs to produce.  Next, we had a PPT discussion on Operation Dynamo (the evacuation of Dunkirk at the end of the Battle of France), and then did the same for the Battle of Britain.  Please read Chapter 12 of DeMarco. 

Enjoy the dance.
