International conference Small States in the Age of Total War 1900-1940
Netherlands Defence Academy Breda, 26-27 november 2008
Over the past decade a new field of research has been explored: the position of the small European powers vis-a-vis World War I and its military consequences during the Interwar Period.
During the war the small powers had to uphold and protect their neutrality against infringements by the belligerents.
After the war they had to accommodate themselves to the radically changed face of modern warfare. How should they react to the brutality and high costs of industrialized warfare if a new European conflict would spill over to them? And how could they hope to remain out of it?
Following the success of previous symposiums on World War I in Copenhagen and Washington, the Netherlands Defence Academy in Breda is pleased to host a symposium that focuses beyond that specific period. In doing so, we are continuing the tradition of bringing together researchers from both the PhD. and established academic scholarly levels.
The language at the conference is English.
