American Airpower: Bombers (Virtual Program)

Thursday November 4 2021 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

More than 75 years ago the world witnessed a terrible war.  It took 3 ½ years to end the war and one of the key offensive Allied weapons was the bomber. Our talk highlights some background on each of America’s bomber airplanes that helped to win. You might gain a different perspective of the air war that shares a sense of how complex America’s defense was.  The discussion includes the U.S. Army Air Force and Navy bombers from just before WWII through the cold war.

Presenter: John Cilio has been telling the stories of history for over a decade. He is a skilled historian having published seven historical books ranging from women working in WWII and their impact on today’s business world to vintage helicopters. Nickolai Sikorsky wrote the foreword to his Helicopter Evolution book and Prince William was kind enough to write a letter about his copy of the book. He is an honorary member of the Danbury, Connecticut WWII Lost Squadron Veterans organization. John hails from a career in IBM corporate marketing and has spoken to large and small audiences in over 60 countries around the world.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Avon Library.
