As it has in recent years, in 2012-2013 the Dr. Harold C. Deutsch World War II History Round Table will be presenting a monthly series of talks (most by WWII veterans and/or authors of new books on the war) on topics related to the history of WWII. All are at 7pm in the visitor center in Historic Fort Snelling. A $5 donation is requested to help defray expenses, though students are admitted for free.

You can see the entire year’s schedule here, plus other information about the Round Table.
