Hanson on World War II


My favorite living historian, Victor Davis Hanson, has a lecture series on World War II through Hillsdale College.  Go here to view it.  His companion history on World War II, go here to view it, is a masterpiece.  Go here to read a review of the book by historian Andrew Roberts.

More to explorer


  1. At 42:36 Victor David Hanson tells that the Japanese have built a large carrier and named it the Kaga. The Kaga was the lead carrier at the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Are we to assume that Japan is planning another sneak attack even after America rebuilt Japan through the Marshal Plan?

    Kaga is the name of an old province (now part of Ishikawa). The name has no military significance.
