Buzzanco: Background to World War Two

The latest and greatest from Green and Red Podcast co-host, and University of Houston history professor, Bob Buzzanco discusses the background to World War Two.

He discusses “military Keynesianism” and end of depression that includes appeasement, Isolationism, and outbreak of war.

In Europe, we see the rise of corporatism and fascism; German aggression in the Rhineland, Spain, Austria/Anschluss, Czechoslovakia and Poland.  In Asia and the Greater East, we see the Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere and the invasion of China. And in the U.S., it’s isolationism, the “Arsenal of Democracy,” an undeclared war. Plus the Phony War, and the Battle of Britain.
