2019/20 Courses


Course Title: The Friendly Invasion - USAAF in East Anglia 1942-45
Course Number: C2226691
Course Description: The Friendly Invasion - the US Army Air Force in East Anglia. Author and aviation historian Ian McLachlan explores the combat history, cultural impact and legacy of the American presence during World War 2. This popular course is delivered in a friendly fashion but doesn't dodge the more sensitive issues surrounding the arrival of the USAAF - race relations; romance and crime. It also examines the subject of GI Brides and the enduring legacy of sacrifices shared and friendships created amidst conflict as the Americans sought to prove their daylight bombing strategy against British advice.
