Paul Dickson, author of more than 60 non-fiction books, will be discussing his latest book, "The Rise of the G.I. Army 1940-1941," the dramatic, untold story of how the American Army was mobilized from scattered outposts two years before Pearl Harbor into the disciplined and mobile fighting force that helped win World War II. Senator William S. Cohen, former United States Secretary of Defense, says, "Just when we think there's nothing left to learn about World War II, Paul Dickson tells us more, much more. This is one of the most important books I've read that showcases the forces of isolationism and racism during one of the most consequential periods in American history. It belongs on the shelves of everyone who understands how fragile democracy is and why every American is worthy of fighting for it." Free and open to the public.
