The next meeting of the World War 2 Book Club will be on April 20. Historian and author David Sears will discuss his popular book At War With The Wind. Sears is a Morris County resident, and in addition to writing several other books on the war in the Pacific works as a business consultant. He is a former officer in the United States Navy with extensive sea duty aboard a destroyer and in addition is a Vietnam war veteran. In writing At War With the Wind he carried out original research and conducted hundreds of interviews.
The war in the Pacific theatre has often been overlooked in favor of the European conflict, but the current HBO series on the war in this neglected theatre has brought this subject back to the forefront. Don't miss this exciting evening. As always the meetings run from 7 to 9 PM at the Millburn Public Library.
There will be an opportunity to purchase signed copies of his book at the conclusion of the lecture.
