Battle of Kasserine Pass Symposium Presentations

Citino, Barry, Barron, and Rein take on Patton, Rommel, Montgomery, and Eisenhower.   

The concluding panel at the Museum's February 22, 2018, daylong Symposium to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Kasserine Pass gathered all four of the day's speakers for a freewheeling discussion on the theme "The Learning Curve: The US Army and the Arrival in Theater, 1942-43."

The Symposium, held in BB's Stage Door Canteen, was attended by more than 100 WWII enthusiasts who engaged with the featured speakers throughout the day. The finale is embedded below, following a guide to the individual speakers. Click on each presenter's name to watch the session.
