TTSP Documents and Resources


As part of this project two researchers spent time mining and annotating relevant sources based on five general themes identified by lead scholars, Dr. Will Hitchcock (US) and Dr. Gary Sheffield (UK).  The themes in which the documents were identified and arranged were:

  1. What is “Total War”?
  2. Clash of Ideologies: Why do states fight?
  3. Strategy, Tactics, and Leadership: How do states fight?
  4. The Human Experience of War: What happens to people in wartime?
  5. Legacies: What does war achieve?

We hope that these two collections will prove to valuable to you in your classroom when teaching and making sense of World Wars I and II.
