Welcome to H-War, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online. H-WAR encourages scholarly discussion of world military history and makes available diverse bibliographical, research and teaching aids.
I'm researching a book about the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, an African-American unit that landed on Omaha and Utah Beaches on D-Day. I'm looking for landing information for this unit. Any other information anyone may wish to share about this unit is very much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Linda Hervieux firstname.lastname@example.org
I am in the process of developing a new readings course on Interwar Military Innovation (1919-1939) for the Fall Semester and looking for some recommendations.
The course is designed like a graduate level reading seminar, but with a limited reading list, approximately 6-8 monographs, appropriate for upper-level undergraduate history majors. It is designed to challenge students to recognize and engage with historiographical debates, analyze research methodologies and sources, etc. Some possible sub-themes in the course could be armor doctrine, strategic bombing theory, submarine or aircraft carrier development with two or three works that speak directly to each other would be an bonus. Experiences from a variety of nations would be ideal.
