The ATCJS is delighted to invite you to join us for a special awards ceremony and lecture honoring Professor Gerhard Weinberg. Born in Hanover in 1928, Gerhard Weinberg got out of Nazi Germany after the November (Kristallnacht) pogrom and went to England. There he, his parents, and his siblings survived the war, unlike the members of his extended family who remained in Germany. Weinberg served in the US army in 1946-47, worked as a research analyst in the war documentation project, and received his PhD from the University of Chicago. His many influential publications include A World at Arms: A Global History of World War II, and Visions of Victory: The Hopes of Eight World Leaders. In 2009, he received the Pritzker Military Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing.

 This lecture will be delivered only virtually via Zoom. To attend virtually, please click LINK on Wednesday, March 15 at 1 PM.
