Russian expert to give Greater Issues address
Retired U.S. Army Col. David M. Glantz, a distinguished military historian of the Soviet Union and the modern Slavic world, will give a Greater Issues address at 11 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 30, in McAlister Field House on The Citadel campus. The talk, entitled “Russia Resurgent,” is free and open to the public.
In addition, a panel discussion with Glantz will take place from 3-4:30 p.m. in Bond Hall, Room 165. Serving on the panel will be Citadel political science professors, Capt. Jack Porter and Sarah Tenney, as well as Guoli Liu from the College of Charleston Political Science Department. The public is invited to attend.
Glantz, who currently holds the Mark W. Clark Chair in History, is chief editor of “The Journal of Slavic Military Studies” and one of the first U.S. members of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He has written more than 80 books on the Soviet Army and the Soviet-German War.
The Greater Issues Series was founded in 1954 to engage cadets’ interest and knowledge in important topics of the day. Since it was established, the series has brought presidents, heads of state, scholars, diplomats, journalists and distinguished business and military leaders to Charleston and The Citadel. The Greater Issues series is made possible by a grant from The Mills B. Lane Memorial Foundation.
