HOW World War I Started: Crash Course World History 209

In which John Green teaches you about World War I and how it got started. Crash Course doesn’t usually talk much about dates, but the way that things unfolded in July and August of 1914 are kind of important to understanding the Great War. You’ll learn about Franz Ferdinand, Gavrilo Pincep, the Black Hand, and why the Serbian nationalists wanted to kill the poor Archduke. You’ll also learn who mobilized first and who exactly started the war. Sort of. Actually there’s no good answer to who started the war, but we give it a shot anyway.

So I’m showing Crash Course World History for the first time in my classes.  My freshman almost always ask, “Why does his computer say ‘this machine kills fascists?’” 

This year, I have a perfect , quick and easy response.

While viewing a PowerPoint on Early Civilizations and almost falling asleep during the supporting videos…I clicked on salvation in the form of #crashcourse World History and @johngreenwritesbooks talking about #Mesopotamia. I never expected the money I gave to Crash Course would benefit my own education. #nerdfighter #vlogbrothers

Drought and Famine: Crash Course World History #208

In which John Green teaches you a little bit about drought, which is a natural weather phenomenon, and famine, which is almost always the result of human activity. Throughout human history, when food shortages strike humanity, there was food around. There was just a failure to connect those people with the food that would keep them alive. There are a lot of reasons that food distribution breaks down, and John is going to teach you about them in the context of the late-19th century famines that struck British India.
