Army Heritage Center Foundation Military History Webinar
In the new year, the Army Heritage Center Foundation will continue its webinar program on two Wednesdays each month, avoiding the third Wednesday of each month so as not to compete with the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center's Perspectives in Military History lecture series.
As always, if you miss one of the webinars, you can find it on the Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCFoundation) YouTube Channel and, if you signed up for the program and missed the webinar, you will receive a link to the webinar/lecture.

The Road Less Travelled - The Secret Battle to End the Great War,
1916-1917 with Dr. Philip Zelikow
During a pivotal few months in the middle of the First World War all sides-Germany, Britain, and America believed the war could be concluded. Peace at the end of 1916 would have saved millions of lives and changed the course of history utterly.
Two years into the most terrible conflict the world had ever known, the warring powers faced a crisis. There were no good military options. Money, men, and supplies were running short on all sides. The German chancellor secretly sought President Woodrow Wilson's mediation to end the war, just as British ministers and France's president also concluded that the time was right. The Road Less Traveled describes how tantalizingly close these far-sighted statesmen came to ending the war, saving millions of lives, and avoiding the total war that dimmed hopes for a better world.
