The title of this lecture is “The Great War at Sea” and will be presented by Dr. John T. Kuehn from CGSC’s Department of Military History. Dr. Keuhn will lead a discussion on strategy and major themes of sea power and their relevance during the war at sea in World War I.
The CGSC Department of Military History hosts the General of the Armies John J. Pershing Great War Centennial Series with support from the CGSC Foundation. The lecture series intended to foster understanding of this world-changing conflict during its 100-year commemoration. More than any other single event, World War I was the decisive, shaping experience of the Twentieth Century. It was a brutal war that brought down four empires, led to revolution in Russia, and eventually brought the United States onto the world stage as a major power. We live with its results to this day. All lectures in the series are free and open to the public.
