Mark Albertson returns to discuss the Causes of World War I. Beginning with the French Revolution, this talk will chronicle the string of events that led to the terrible cataclysm of 1914, brought about the collapse of dynasties, and spurred the rise of Bolshevism, Fascism, Nazism and unbridled militarism. The resulting Versailles Treaty sowed the seeds for the division, strife and war that plagues mankind to the present day. Refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library. Registration required and begins October 11th.
