I’m with you, Evan! The course really laid out the scope of the conflict well and helped place the present conflicts in context.

It’s crazy to me how much turmoil European mapmaking resulted in. I think it’s a great historical warning for Western and European actors to be more careful and intentional with how they engage the region.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
