WWII Friends of History Group

Alumni & Friends World War II Tour of Italy - May 2016

The Department of History's Alumni & Friends Tour of World War II sites in Italy is scheduled for May 17-28, 2016. This new itinerary will begin in Palermo (on Sicily); stop at battlefields, landing beaches, cemeteries, and other markers of World War II and its enduring impact; and conclude near Lake Garda, which generally marked the battlefront between U.S. and German forces when the war ended in May 1945. A professional guide will accompany the group at all sites and faculty hosts Peter Hahn and Peter Mansoor will provide expert background talks and answers on the military, political, and social features of the war.

Be sure to visit the itinerary.

The Clio Society of the Department of History at The Ohio State University

The Clio Society are friends of the History Department at The Ohio State University.  Some of us are current and former students of the university; some of us earned degrees in history; others are current and former faculty members of the department; some of us have an interest in the History Department and its continued growth in excellence; and all of us love to read and talk about history.  We range in ages from 18 to 88 and from history specialists to business people, lawyers, and other professionals who never lost their interest in history.
If you liked history as an undergrad, then you are going to love it now.
