Professor John H. Maurer will giving the lecture titled "Winston Churchill, the Rise of German Power, and the Outbreak of World War I" as part of the Stanley and Arlene Ginsburg Lecture Series of the Foreign Policy Research Institute. 

Winston Churchill is best remembered for the leadership role he played during the Second World War. However, decades earlier he played a crucial role in Britain's involvement in the First World War. In light of the 100th anniversary of this epic conflict, John H. Maurer examines how Churchill, as First Lord of the Admiralty, transformed the Royal Navy and provided for Britain's security against the rising German naval challenge in the Great War, and why Churchill's efforts to avert war with Germany were ultimately unsuccessful.

John H. Maurer to Present Lecture at the New York Historical Society Print E-mail
Date: Saturday, March 29th, 2014 - 9:00 am
Location: The Robert H. Smith Auditorium at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West, New York, NY 10024

John H. Maurer will be presenting his lecture, "Embattled Superpower: Churchill and Britain in the Aftermath of the First World War" as part of the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series at the New York Historical Society, co-sponsored by the New York Churchillians.

In the immediate aftermath of the First World War, Great Britain stood as a global superpower. Victory in war, however, did not bring peace. Instead, Britain found itself embroiled in intractable conflicts in Afghanistan, the Middle East, and (closer to home) Ireland. As secretary for war and colonial secretary, Winston Churchill served at the very center of British decision-making in fighting these conflicts and seeking settlements. John H. Maurer explores Churchill's role in this pivotal period when Britain faced challenges to its leading position on the world stage from all sides.

9:00 a.m. — Registration and Continental Breakfast
