“If Torch, No Roundup”: The Decision to Invade North Africa in 1942″ – Terry Copp, 5 December

An Interactive discussion (similar to the Dieppe presentation in August) on the continuing Anglo-American strategic debate that culminated in Operation Torch, the invasion of French North Africa. We will consider the conflict between George Marshall and Winston Churchill and the unintended consequences of the operations compromises that shaped the battle for North Africa and the decision to invade Sicily.
