I’m truly thrilled that Enlightenment Events have created this super event focusing on military history. With a plethora of top speakers and debaters, covering a wide spread of eras and fascinating topics, I’m expecting some real magic on stage! There’s certainly enough to challenge and entertain from novice to expert.
