App Store Description

World War I was where the twentieth century really began, and its far-reaching results are very much with us today, in particular the lesson of the dangers of being stuck in the mentalities of a previous era when dealing with the rapidly changing realities of a new one.

This app presents the World War I unit from the full Flow of History app on world history and includes the three main flowcharts (the causes of the war, the course and dynamics of the war, and its results), along with readings discussing the flowcharts in more detail, a timeline of the early twentieth century to put the war in a broader historical context, links to flowcharts on factors leading to and affected by the war, and numerous picture essays discussing specific aspects of the war. Among those essays are ones covering:
• the cult of militarism in the early twentieth century
• how a breech birth profoundly affected history
• the dynamics of living and fighting a war in a ditch
• anatomy of a typical offensive
• care of the wounded
• women and the war effort
• the propaganda war
• terror weapons for a new century
• the global flu pandemic of 1918-19
• like a riot in a parrot house: the negotiations at Versailles
• the birth of modern Turkey
• art in the early twentieth century

The author has been building and refining this approach to history over the last 34 years of teaching. Along with local teaching awards, he received the Beveridge Family Teaching Award in 2001, the only teaching award in the nation given by the American Historical Association to a secondary school history teacher.
