END OF THE GREAT WAR
Military - diplomatic
This Great War Crisis 1918 will be placing delegates into the shoes of military, diplomatic and political officials of both the Allied and Central Powers during the closing months of the First World War. The Allies are set to be victorious, and years of war have made it so that the Central Powers will not be able to continue its war effort for any longer than three months, as resources and morale dwindle. However, what Europe will look like once the guns go silent is not written in stone, and it will be the responsibility of the delegates to secure the strongest position they can for their country.
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Delegates will be assigned to either military, diplomatic and domestic political roles serving particular countries, including: Britain, France, USA, Italy, Germany, Austro-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire just to name a few. Delegates must launch offensive and defensive military actions, communicate with one another to strengthen one’s international position, and seek to stabilise their own domestic situation which grows ever untenable as the war goes on.
Time Period: Last 3 months of WW1
Cabinets: Entente and Central Powers
GREETINGS FROM THE CRISIS DIRECTOR
Hello! My name is Aidan Cross and I will be having the pleasure of being the Crisis Director for the Final Months of the Great War Crisis at this year’s LSEMUN conference. Regarding myself, I am a third year International Relations and Chinese student studying at the LSE, where I started my ‘career’ in Crisis Committees during my first year at the university. Since my very first experience with Crisis, I have proceeded to backroom, chair and direct a whole host of different committee topics, and I am thus greatly excited to bring this military-diplomatic chaos to you all at LSEMUN 2024.
I do indeed have a life beyond crisis, though my time is now more consumed with my dissertation research that focused on Chinese and Russian military cooperation, a core area of interest for myself.
Looking forward to meeting you all, and can’t wait to see how you engage with / survive the crisis ahead.
