Maurer, a senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, is Alfred Thayer Mahan Professor of Grand Strategy and Sea Power and Distinguished University Professor at the Naval War College presented.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
Why did Germany lose the war?
What role did the United States play in winning the war?
How did the war’s ending lead to an even greater conflict a generation later?
