Speaker: COL (Ret) David M. Glantz, Editor, Journal of Slavic Military Studies: "The Soviet-German War, 1941-1945: Myths and Realities"
This content of this talk raises so many issues:
1. How could an event so massive, so recent, and so historically important be so inaccurately reported and underappreciated?
2. How often are plain historical facts distorted for political - and even personal - reasons?
3. What would have happened if instead of attacking the Soviet Union and declaring it an enemy after World War II we made some small effort to understand the trauma that they - our allies in World War II - suffered during the war?
