Lecture by Dr. Richard A. Lobban, Jr.

This presentation is a much anticipated follow up to Dr. Lobban’s 2021 talk on World War II from African Perspectives. His current presentation picks up the story with the important 1941 battles for Keren in Eritrea, Culqualber Pass, and Gondar in Ethiopia where British and colonial forces from Sudan and India, from 1940 to 1941, finally defeated the Italian fascists and diverted them from European deployment. Like the proverbial “views of the other side of the moon” the Indian Ocean theater in WW II was much more important than imagined and fortunately Dr. Lobban will tell us why.

Dr. Richard A. Lobban, Jr. is an Adjunct Professor of African Studies at the , Naval War College.

Admission is $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members. Please use the form below or call 603-569-1212 for reservations as seated is limited. Museum doors open at 6pm program begins at 7pm.
