Book Talk with Dr. John W. Coe (WI Book Festival event)

Wisconsin Veterans Museum 30 W. Mifflin St, Madison

This book is based on a large collection of materials donated to the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida. They reveal, among other things, a highly regarded naval officer who sacrificed his career by releasing classified documents to the press and by chasing non-existent conspiracies, pursuits that eventually cost him his career.
