QU to be host of special history presentation on Wednesday honoring World War II veterans
QUINCY — In celebration of Veterans Day, Quincy University’s School of Humanities and History Department will honor veterans with a presentation by Wendell Mauter, professor emeritus of history, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Francis Hall, Room 334, on QU’s main campus, 1800 College.
The presentation, “The Allies’ Allies: How Allied Nations Helped the U.S., Great Britain and the Soviet Union Defeat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan and Win the Second World War,” explains how nations like Canada, China, France, Australia, New Zealand, India, Poland, Brazil, Mexico and many others played critical roles in the final victory of WWII.
In a press release, Mauter said, “Although the U.S., Great Britain and the Soviet Union (known as the Big 3) did the vast bulk of the fighting, dying and production of weapons and implements of war, many nations provided soldiers, sailors and airmen and supplied needed raw materials, food, weapons and transportation. This presentation will tell the story of veterans from World War II who don’t get talked about much.”
The presentation is open to the public.
