Radio Waves at War - Military History Series

This event has expired and is here for your information.

Description:Radio is the defining technology of modern military history, allowing near-instant command of faraway forces for the first time in human history. This lecture traces the arrival of radio signal and electronic warfare from before the First World War, to the many uses of radar in the Second World War, through Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, and into our 21st Century conflicts. Recommended reading for this lecture is “Intelligence in War” by John Keegan.

This event is part of a series of military history lectures led by veteran, writer, and researcher Matt Osborne. The series will be the first Tuesday of each month, September through December.

Matt Osborne is a US Army signals intelligence veteran and website news beat editor turned social media consultant. He is working on a book of essays about war and conflict, including "Brain Bucket: a Social History of War, Football, Helmets, and Head Injury," which is already published at Medium.com.
