Three Aspects of Attrition in World War I

Apr 02, 12:00PM - 7:00PM
Three Aspects of Attrition in World War IDr. John A. Lynn
Author of Battle: A History of Combat and Culture
West Point Ewing Professor of Military History, 2016-2017

12 p.m. - Student Q&A (TMH 105)
5 p.m. - Lecture, "Three Aspects of Attrition in World War I" (ASB North 105)

Dr. John Lynn’s research emphasizes eras of military change, particularly in early modern Europe and South Asia; however his most recent book, Women, Armies, and Warfare in Early Modern Europe (2008), examines the important roles of women who campaigned with armies from 1500 to 1815, including notable female individuals who assumed male identities to serve in the ranks and formidable women who, as women, marched in the train of armies.

Lynn currently serves as Professor Emeritus of History–University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and as faculty for the university’s Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security. In 2001, Professor Lynn won the Campus Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, in 2004, the French government awarded him the Palmes Académiques at the rank of chevalier, and West Point named him the Ewing Professor of Military History for the 2016-2017 academic year.

In June 2014, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded Manuel “Cowboy” Donley the National Heritage Fellowship in recognition of his contributions to American music. Performing in Austin since the 1940s, Donley’s career reflects the rich history of Mexican-American music in Texas from traditional ballads to orquesta tejana and even the electrical amplification of rock ‘n’ roll.
