The Great War's Forgotten Realm: Revisiting the Habsburg Monarchy's First World War

Notre Dame’s own Historian John Deak will talk about new, emerging perspectives that fundamentally call into question this classic interpretation and what it may mean for central European history and our understanding of the First World War.
