World Wars the highlight of Library Friends event

          World War I and World War II will be the focus of two upcoming Daniel Library Friends events at The Citadel.

          On Tuesday, April 20, Stephen Budiansky will discuss his book "Air Power, The Men, Machines, and Ideas That Revolutionized War, From Kitty Hawk to Gulf War II" at 6:30 p.m. in Bond Hall Room 165.

          Budiansky is also author of "Battle of Wits: The Complete Story of Code Breaking in WWII." A former national security correspondent and foreign editor of the Weekly news magazine, U.S.News & World Report, he worked on classified military studies of smart weapons technology for the U.S. congress. Budiansky's articles frequently appear in The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times and The Washington Post.

          Author Hew Strachan will visit at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday April 27 in Bond Hall Room 165. Strachan is the author of "The First World War" examining the causes, the major campaigns and the consequences of the World War I. Drawing on material culled from many countries, Strachan offers fresh, clear sighted perspective on how the war not only redrew the map of the world but also set in motion the most dangerous conflicts of today.

          Both events are free and open to the public.
