OhioHealth UpBEAT History Group: World War II Strategy and the Media
January 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join us virtually, by telephone or computer device, or in-person as we explore the influence of the press on strategy and command decisions during World War II. During the war, both Allied and Axis nations attempted to employ the press as a weapon. This usually took the form of using the media to improve morale, inspire soldiers and keep the home front informed. As the war continued, however, the press began influencing the battlefield decisions of military commanders. This talk is adapted from the speaker’s book, The Media Offensive: How the American Press Shaped Allied Strategy during World War II. Presented by: Dr. Alexander G. Lovelace. UpBEAT (Be Educated and Active Together) is a program for those aged 55 years and over. Membership is free.
