Military Monday – International WWII Conference

This weekend the United States National World War II Museum in New Orleans hosted the 2013 International World War II Conference. You can watch videos from the conference sessions on their website. Check them out, many big name World War II historians spoke at the conference.

The focus was on 1943 and events that transpired during that year of the war. I listened to several sessions as they streamed live. I learned several new things that will help me with my research and things that I did not know prior to listening.

Next year the conference will be held in New Orleans December 4-6, 2014. Watch their website for more details and registration information.
