Recently, we inserted classes about World War II into our Civil War Institute curriculum.  The response was so positive that we’ve spun off a brand-new enterprise, covering not only World War II but ALL military history.  We will go beyond our own shores and embrace both ancient and modern times to include anything of interest. (Meanwhile, our Civil War classes will go forward undiminished and undiluted – with existing classes that have generated interest in the past and new ones we hope will spark even more response in the future.)

Meet the German Air Aces.  Forget the legend of the “Red Baron”! A dozen fliers in the World War II German Luftwaffe were likely the highest scoring aerial aces the world may ever see! This course presents their careers and achievements and compares them to the pilots of the war’s other combatant nations.

Expensive Victory in Leyte Gulf, or “Bull’s Run.” A combined Army-Navy operation in October 1944 culminated in perhaps the most important Allied victory in the Pacific Theater, despite an ill-advised wild-goose chase by U.S. Admiral “Bull” Halsey.  The triumph enabled General Douglas MacArthur to declare on Dec. 25: “I have returned.”
