This Month's Speaker

Join us for the next meeting of the Williamsburg Civil War Roundtable at the Williamsburg Public Library Theatre at 7 PM on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

On Tuesday, February 27, 2018 – Ralph Peters will present "Civil War Leadership and its Challenges”. Ralph will discuss well-known commanders and others half-forgotten, how their characters and backgrounds shaped their successes and failures, and how the dynamic times in which they lived--an age of technical and political revolutions--made a war that began under the influence of Napoleon and Frederick the Great end as the first truly modern war, with the first modern staffs; the first industrial war machine; and a new age of mass slaughter.

Ralph Peters is a writer, strategist, media commentator and retired military officer. He is the author of 33 books and over 1,000 columns, articles, essays and reviews. Uniformed service, personal interests and research have taken him to more than 70 countries and six continents. He served in the U.S. Army for 22 years, first as an enlisted man, then as an officer, retiring shortly after his promotion to lieutenant-colonel to write.
