History and War

The recent War on the Rocks podcast, World Wars and the Craft of History, featuring Michael S. Neiberg, was an interesting and relatively short segment (at least it seemed to go by fast while sitting in traffic!) talking about Neiberg’s work studying WWI and America’s involvement in it.

One of the things that I enjoyed hearing was Neiberg’s comments on the importance of domestic context and domestic politics in shaping the country’s involvement in some of these great wars.  A useful reminder that interventions abroad are of course hugely shaped by our “internal” context.
