Tuesday, May 22, at 7:00 pm, Room L
Presented by: Irmin Allner

Program Information:
Dr. Irmin Allner will introduce and then show two 30 minute videos of lectures 6 and 8 in the lecture series. She will then lead the discussion that will follow the videos.
The video lectures in this series are given by Professor Thomas Childers, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania, History department.

Lecture 6: “The German Offensive in the West”
The German Blitzkrieg in Western Europe in the spring of 1940 brought an end to the strange period of “phony war” that had prevailed in the west since September of the previous year. This lecture looks at English and French preparations for the anticipated attack and Hitler’s daring strategy, as well as the “miracle of Dunkirk” and the sudden and unexpected fall of France.

Lecture 8: “The Battle of Britain.”
A successful invasion of England hinged on establishing air superiority over both the English Channel and the planned landing zones in southern England. The colossal air battle that began in July 1940 would rage into October.and ultimately be won by the Royal Air Force. This lecture examines that crucial and decisive battle.
