Two New Teaching Modules
We have added two new higher education teaching modules to our collection. The teaching modules on the site are essays specially written by experts and designed to help lecturers structure teaching on these subjects. They include many useful links to resources outside the site and primary documents within the Archive.
The Birth of the Anglo-American ‘Special Relationship’ by David Woolner, Roosevelt Institute
In this module, Woolner looks at the political relationship between Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, widely credited as the beginnings of the Anglo-American 'special relationship' that we know today, and crucially, a relationship that helped propel the Allies to victory in the Second World War.
Winston Churchill as First Lord of the Admiralty, 23 October 1911 – 24 May 1915 by Martin Thornton, University of Leeds
Thornton explores Churchill’s contribution to the strength of the British Navy during this crucial period in history and illustrates how the battle for naval supremacy between Britain and Germany resulted in relationships, strategies, and responsibilities being developed between Britain and her allies.
