New Talk on the Lafayette Escadrille – American Volunteer Fighter Pilots in World War I

Last fall I was very honored to be invited to speak at the National World War I Museum and Memorial’s annual symposium, where I gave a talk called “Myth and Memory of the Lafayette Escadrille.” This was a dedicated squadron of American volunteer fighter pilots that flew with the French in World War I, before the United States joined the war. You can view the whole thing on YouTube here:

Coming to these events in person is always awesome, and for those able to check it out, I’d highly recommend it. A huge “thank you” to everyone at the museum for setting up this cool event. Hopefully we’ll see you at the next one!
