ALFRED McCOY
October 16 6:30 p.m. Waupaca Public Library
Alfred McCoy Harrington Professor of History at UW-Madison discusses how the US military confronted its failure to win the Vietnam War by deploying the full force of America`s advanced technology in ways that, though failing at the time, created the first electronic battlefield and proved a seminal precursor for the development of a new form of robotic warfare that would take full form during the Global War on Terror that followed the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
