A treat for history buffs, the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies is posting podcasts every Friday leading up to the 2012 Military History Colloqium in London, Ont., in May.
So far, historians Terry Copp and Michelle Fowler talk about the liberation of the Netherlands and Will J. Pratt of the University of Calgary presents a biography of Air Vice-Marshal C.M. “Black Mike” McEwen. McEwen had a distinguished career in the First World War, was credited with more than two dozen confirmed victories and earned three British decorations. In the Second World War he commanded 6 (RCAF) Bomber Group of the Royal Air Force.
The podcasts are of presentations at the 2011 conference.
