Topeka - Museum After Hours

Dr. John Curatola, associate professor at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, presents "The Great War in the Air."

Aviation grew in importance and sophistication during the First World War. The conflict from 1914-1918 saw the development of strategic bombing, reconnaissance, and pursuit aviation. Dr Curatola will provide insights into these aviation developments that made aviation an intrinsic part of modern war, which still resonate today.
