APEH: The Rise of Inter-War Dictators

April 27, 2020


We’ve already covered one inter-war dictator in Joesph Stalin, who will become a temporary ally of the US in WWII – it’s a great example of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” It’s also a great example of why neither Hitler nor Stalin should be trusted, because they both completely exploited each other […]

APEH: Stalin and Propaganda

April 22, 2020


We’ll just slide right into Stalin from Lenin before heading westward to see how Europe is coping with the post-WWI fallout (spoiler: it’s not well).

For today, please view the second part of The Russian Revolution in Color. After you have completed viewing it, read this excerpt […]

APEH: The Russian Revolution

April 16, 2020


NB: We will hold a Raszoomstin next Thursday during our regular Zoom sessions. I can’t not talk about this guy. The Russian Revolution is my favorite thing to teach and it is killing me that we aren’t in school for me to be able to do it. This is why we’re having the Raszoomstin. Unfortunately […]

APEH: The lasting impact of WWI Culturally and Politically

April 14, 2020


There were two outcomes to WWI, neither of which were good. The entire war shaped a whole generation’s views of life, death, beauty, futility, and patriotism. The people who made it out of the war were called the Lost Generation, and the people who didn’t make it out of the war were simply lost. For […]
