Sean McMeekin, author of July 1914: Countdown to War, talked about the events that led up to World War I and how things might have turned out differently. He argued against the idea that an arms race between Germany and Britain provoked war, instead describing a series of decisions made by heads of state that had a domino effect.

The MacArthur Memorial’s 2014 World War I Centennial Symposium was held in partnership with the Hampton Roads Naval Museum and the Old Dominion University Department of History on November 14-15 and held in the MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center in downtown Norfolk, Virginia. close
