Leaders of World War II: Part II

A Distinguished Scholar Seminar Featuring Gerhard L. Weinberg

In this second part of a two-part series, Gerhard L. Weinberg, William Rand Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of History Emeritus, will continue to share his immense knowledge of World War II, focusing on both the details and the broad picture to make the story of the war come to life. In a series of four lectures, Professor Weinberg will provide insights into the lives and decisions of Charles de Gaulle, Joseph Stalin, Tojo Hideki, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Speaker

Gerhard Weinberg retired from teaching at Carolina in 1999, but remains active in his field. He is one of the world’s most distinguished scholars of World War II and National Socialist Germany. He is the author of ten books, including A World at Arms: A Global History of World War II, which received three major awards for scholarship, was a Book of the Month Club Main Selection, and is widely considered to be the best single-volume history of World War II. Most recently, Professor Weinberg was awarded the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award, a lifetime achievement prize for excellence in military writing.
