Pretty easy, overall.
Great course. Structured very easy. Every lecture has a quiz the weeks readings, but it mainly focuses on vocabulary. The quizzes are not hard if you study the vocabulary. For the exams be sure to study his powerpoint as many of the phrases and answer choices are verbatim from the slides. You learn a lot without all the stress of many assignments and tests. Also the reaction papers are basically graded for completion so just make sure you are on topic and you do the page minimum.
I learned a lot about WWII he emphasized the causes and effects of the events of the war. He explains everything in a very casual, easy to understand way. And he's funny sometimes too!

Advice for students:
Make sure to study the weekly vocabulary and skim the reading. For exams DEFINITELY review the powerpoint and do the major questions that he publishes on web courses every week.
