by Brett Schulte on May 19, 2006 · 0 comments

Air Date: 051906
Subject: Brigadier General Harold W. Nelson: 5 X-ray
Book:  U.S. Army War College Guide to the Battle of Gettysburg and many more
Guest: Brigadier General Harold W. Nelson

Summary:  Brigadier General Harold W. Nelson (ret), former Chief of Military History for the U.S. Army, has led hundreds of “staff rides” across Civil War battlefields, for everyone from ROTC students to civilian corporate leaders. Listen in and hear what they learn.

Brett’s Summary: Harold Nelson discusses how the notes from staff rides made their way into the published series of U.S. Army War College guide books.  Together with his co-author Jay Luvaas, Nelson has put together quite an impressive list of titles.  The U.S. Army War College itself, located in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, is also discussed.

Civil War Talk Radio airs most Fridays at 12 PM Pacific on World Talk Radio Studio A. Host Gerry Prokopowicz, the History Chair at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, interviews a guest each week and discusses their interest in the Civil War. Most interviews center around a book or books if the guest is an author. Other guests over the years have included public Historians such as park rangers and museum curators,wargamers, bloggers, and even a member of an American Civil War Round Table located in London, England.

In this series of blog entries, I will be posting air dates, subjects, and guests, and if I have time, I’ll provide a brief summary of the program. You can find all of the past episodes I’ve entered into the blog by clicking on the Civil War Talk Radio category. Each program should appear either on or near the date it was first broadcast.
