Roger Chickering completed the final six chapters of his manuscript, tentatively titled The Great War in Freiburg, 1914-1918: A Historical Essay, which will be published in English by Cambridge University Press and in German by the Schoeningh Verlag. He also wrote a chapter, "Die Universität im Ersten Weltkrieg," for the Festschrift to commemorate the 550th anniversary of the founding of the Albert-Ludwigs-University in Freiburg. He wrote a paper, "A Tale of Two Tales: Grand Narratives of War in the Age of Revolution," which he presented at a conference on "War in the Age of Revolution, 1776-1815," held at the German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C.; papers from the conference will be published in a volume coedited by Roger Chickering and Stig Foerster (Cambridge University Press).
