Class Experience

Upon completion of this class, students will have learned about the history of Germany from 1914-1945, the formation of Abwehr, its role in German politics, and its role in espionage in the United States. 
B.A. in History with a minor in Political Philosophy. My undergraduate thesis examined Soviet espionage in the United States from 1930-1945 and its implications within McCarthyism. Previously, I have taught courses in espionage and the Cold War to Middle and High School audiences, and have presented lectures in collegiate settings. 
No homework assigned. 
A briefing sheet introducing the topic to students will be posted to the classroom page prior to class. Students are encouraged to look over the sheet before class. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class examines the military and espionage activities of the National Socialist (Nazi) movement in Germany. Discussion and content may be unsuitable for young students. Some photos included in power points may include Nazi symbols such as a Swastika, or Adolf Hitler. While Nazi ideology is not portrayed or promoted in a positive manner, this image may nevertheless cause discomfort to viewers. The focal point of this class is espionage, not Nazism; the lecture will focus on espionage actitivites with Nazism as a background for understanding why it happened. Discussion will be moderated to allow focus on espionage activities.
