Please note due to the timing of the, I have had to make it due before weeks 9 and 10 (to give you time to work on your final papers). However, I am sure many of you are interested in these topics and I welcome you to work ahead if you want to –it is not necessary, however. If you want to answer the questions, or parts of questions, which cover WWII and/or the postwar world, I have indicated which topics require that material from weeks 9 and 10.
