World War 1: Lessons and Legacy of the Great War

WW1: Lessons and Legacy of the Great War

You’ll discover how the allies won a decisive victory over the Germans, learning with UNSW Australia’s John Connor – one of the country’s leading military historians.

It’s the first course on FutureLearn from the Australian Institute for Innovative Materials at the University of Wollongong.
