This conference will examine the forces that shaped the conduct of partisan warfare from the perspective of both occupying forces and partisans in German-occupied Europe during the Second World War. Papers should address as their theme one or more of the range of factors, and not solely the military ones, that shaped conduct in partisan and/or anti-partisan warfare in German-occupied Europe. These include ideology; the increasingly destructive nature of twentieth-century warfare; conditions in the field which both partisan and anti-partisan forces faced; each side’s economic needs; cultural and psychological factors, and the political structures of the Third Reich and the occupied countries.
Professor Evan Mawdsley and Professor Richard Overy are confirmed as keynote speakers.
