World War II is the earliest war where we can actually speak to the veterans themselves - the men and women who served. But this precious resource is fading quickly so time is of the essence! This webinar will present a case study, fleshing out a basic story of a pilot and crew of a B-17 shot down over Germany, illustrating how to find and access multiple sources to learn about the experiences of these heroes.
