Presented by
Dr. Jack Ballard
In conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of World War I,
Dr. Jack Ballard will look behind today’s somewhat romanticized view of World War I aerial combat.
He will present the challenges pilots faced in flying their flimsy, wood and canvas, covered aircraft
amid the fierce air battles that raged with German warplanes. The program includes the personal experiences
of several pilot-heroes.
Dr. Jack Ballard holds a PhD in American History from UCLA,
taught history at the Air Force Academy for five years,
served in the Air Force, and worked at Martin Marietta Corp.
He is the author of 8 books including Fort Logan and The 147th Aero Squadron in World War I.
