    Developing Strategists - Dr. Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Lecture Series

    Developing Strategists - Dr. Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Lecture Series

    May 7, 2020 - Dr. Thomas Bruscino
    On May 7, 2020, at 6:30 PM EST, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania live-streamed a lecture entitled Developing Strategists, Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Interwar Army War College by U.S. Army War College Associate Professor Dr. Thomas Bruscino. The lecture is based on a paper written by Dr. Bruscino in conjunction with the USAHEC Historical Services Division. General of the Army Dwight Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, did not achieve his position or victory in World War II by accident. The overwhelming majority of senior leaders who led the United States to victory in World War II relied on world-class education and mentorship at the U.S. Army War College. Making extensive use of the Army War College’s archival records at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, Dr. Bruscino’s lecture will describe the U.S. Army War College during Eisenhower’s tenure as a student in the 1927-1928 school year. He will offer insights into professional military education at the strategic level, interwar military reform, and the professional experiences of most of the senior leaders of World War II.

    The Partnership that Almost Won the Civil War- Perspectives in Military History Lecture Series

    The Partnership that Almost Won the Civil War- Perspectives in Military History Lecture Series

    April 15, 2020 - Dr. Cristian Keller
    On April 15, 2020, at 6:30PM, the USAHEC welcomed Dr. Christian Keller of the U.S. Army War College to give a lecture based on his latest book, The Great Partnership: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and the Fate of the Confederacy. The unique relationship between Confederate generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson is one mired in legend, controversy, and misconception.  These great chieftains’ command styles, friendship, and even their faith, formed the Army of Northern Virginia into a fighting machine that almost won the Civil War in the Eastern Theater.   Dr. Keller’s talk cut through the folklore surrounding the two leaders and examine why and how their collaboration was contextually one of immense strategic importance for the seceded South. His presentation challenges how we think about Confederate strategic decision-making and the value of personal relationships among senior leaders responsible for organizational survival.

    The Battle of the Bulge -Perspectives in Military History Lecture Series

    The Battle of the Bulge -Perspectives in Military History Lecture Series

    March 4, 2020 - Mr. Martin King
    “They’ve got us surrounded – the poor b********!” was the defiant refrain among the cold and miserable 101st Airborne Division Soldiers valiantly defending the city of Bastogne in December 1945.  Both the German and American Soldiers lost terrible casualties, but the Americans held out against Hitler’s final push west until reinforcements arrived, a crucial part of the victory in what became known as the Battle of the Bulge. On March 4, 2020, at 7:15 PM, the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, hosted Emmy Award winning British military historian, author, and lecturer Martin King.  Referred to as the “greatest living expert” on the Battle of the Bulge, King presented his newest book, The Battle of the Bulge:  The Allies’ Greatest Conflict on the Western Front, and will provide a comprehensive historical and distinctly personal account of the largest, deadliest, and arguably the greatest battle in U.S. military history.

    Hello Girls: USAHEC Women's Equality Day Lecture

    Hello Girls: USAHEC Women's Equality Day Lecture

    August 23, 2019 - Dr. Elizabeth Cobbs
    The Hello Girls is the untold story of how America’s first female Soldiers helped win World War I, earned the vote, and fought the U.S. Army for recognition. In 1918, the U.S. Army Signal Corps sent 223 women to France. They were masters of the latest technology: the telephone switchboard. General John Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Forces, demanded female “wire experts,” when he discovered that inexperienced doughboys were unable to keep him connected with troops under fire. Without communications for even an hour, the Army would collapse. While suffragettes picketed the White House and President Woodrow Wilson struggled to persuade a segregationist Congress to give women of all races the vote, these competent and courageous young women swore the Army’s oath.

    Young Washington - Dr. Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Lecture Series

    Young Washington - Dr. Brooks E. Kleber Memorial Lecture Series

    November 7, 2019 - Mr. Peter Stark
    In the waning and bleak months of 1753, a young and naive George Washington trekked through the Ohio frontier on behalf of the British Crown to forge a diplomatic relationship with the French and Native Americans. Washington knew this mission was a considerable honor and an opportunity for advancement to a full commission in the British Army. On Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 7:15 p.m., New York Times Best Selling author Mr. Peter Stark presented a lecture based on his newest work, Young Washington: How Wilderness and War Forged America’s Founding Father. Stark discussed how Washington’s experiences in the Ohio Territory dealing with ill-supplied militia troops, adverse weather, and intense combat forged this young officer into the future father of a great nation.
