Rick Jacobs presents “El Alamein: Montgomery vs. Rommel”
In October 1942, General Sir Bernard Montgomery defeated General Erwin Rommel in the Battle of El Alamein, Britain’s greatest victory in World War II; Churchill ordered the church bells to be rung throughout the land in celebration. The victory is the cornerstone of the myth of Montgomery, but was it due to his generalship or overwhelming British power against the exhaustion of German men and resources? Please join Captain Rick Jacobs for the story of the great battle and the men who fought and led it.
Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information, please call 504-528-1944 x 484.
