Mark Albertson, historical research editor at Army Aviation magazine and a member of the United States Naval Institute as well as being a member of the Navy League will return to speak to us about “The Great Patriotic War”. This will be a talk about the greatest land war yet waged: The titanic clash between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. The land war in World War II was not decided in the Pacific, North Africa, Sicily, Italy or France. It was decided on the Eastern Front. A savage, no-holds barred conflict which saw the loss of upwards of 30,000,000 lives in 47 months, and, changed the course of history.
