Speaker Series: James Scott and Hampton Sides
Thurs, 4 Oct | 6PM
$5 CLS members, $10 nonmembers

Enjoy the extraordinary storytelling of two authors who transform military history into visceral experiences. Pulitzer Prize finalist and acclaimed military historian James Scott will discuss Rampage: MacArthur, Yamashita, and the Battle of Manila, a definitive history of one of the most brutal campaigns of the Pacific, the bloody battle to retake Manila. Award-winning editor and author Hampton Sides examines his new book, On Desperate Ground which chronicles the extraordinary feats of heroism by Marines during the greatest battle of the Korean War. Based on extensive archival research, war-crimes testimonies, after-action reports, and survivor interviews, both Rampage and On Desperate Ground recount heartbreaking and impressive chapters of the Pacific and Korean wars.
