WW II Era Studies Institute

The Institute is dedicated to stimulating and fostering the study of the historical, political, social, economic and military aspects of World War II in order to provide an understanding of the impact of the war on world history and help future generations avoid armed conflict in the resolution of global problems. The institute is a resource open to all. It educates the community about key events of WW II, the political and military leaders who waged the war and made peace, and those who served on the battlefield as well as on the home front. The ultimate goal of the Institute is to utilize the lessons learned from World War II to prevent the recurrence of global armed conflict in a world of sovereign states with divergent interests, wants and needs.
