About the Event

John MaurerOn the centennial of its signing, join historian John Maurer for a talk reflecting on the historic armistice that ended WWI, the negotiation of the Versailles Treaty, and how the seeds were planted for an even greater war twenty years later. This event is part of a series of lectures Maurer has done for FPRI in Philadelphia and Manhattan on the outbreak of World Wars I and II, and their resolution. Maurer, we are proud to say, got his start at FPRI, and has taught at the Naval War College for over 25 years, where he previously served as chairman of the Strategy Department.
