Professor Eric Rauchway to air on C-SPAN3's American History TV

A lecture by University of California, Davis professor Eric Rauchway will air on C-SPAN3’s American History TV (AHTV) this Saturday, January 24, at 8:00 p.m. ET. In Davis, California, C-SPAN3 is available on channel 98.

In this class, Professor Rauchway talks about the role the British Royal Air Force played as part of the Allied strategy during World War II. He describes how proponents of air power -- still fairly new at the time -- had to compete with the army and navy for resources. One of the major air force campaigns was the British bombing of Cologne which was viewed as retaliation for the bombing of London by German forces.

Each Saturday at 8:00 p.m., a different college lecture is featured as part of the channel’s “Lectures in History” series.

Professor Rauchway’s class will available for online viewing in its entirety after it airs at http://www.c-span.org/video/?322561-1/discussion-allied-strategy-world-war-ii.
