The Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning Presents “The Liberator”
Tuesday, February 16 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm via Zoom
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) is thrilled to welcome back author Alex Kershaw to talk about his book, The Liberator. Over five hundred bloody days, U.S. Army officer Felix Sparks and his infantry unit battled from the beaches of Sicily through the mountains of Italy and France, ultimately enduring bitter and desperate winter combat against the die-hard SS on the Fatherland’s borders. Having miraculously survived the long, bloody march across Europe, Sparks was selected to lead a final charge to Bavaria, where he and his men experienced some of the most intense street fighting suffered by Americans in World War II. And when he finally arrived at the gates of Dachau, Sparks confronted scenes that robbed the mind of reason—and put his humanity to the ultimate test. Join us when author Alex Kershaw shares this gripping account of men in war, based on his book and now a Netflix mini-series, The Liberator. Registration for the talk is $15 per person in advance.
