Paul Zigo to Speak at Next Meeting

Paul E. Zigo
The next meeting of the World War II Book Club will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 17, at the Millburn Library.

Our speaker will be Paul E. Zigo who will present a lecture on his recently published book, The Longest Walk, the story of the 116th Infantry Regiment of the 29th Infantry Division.

The 116th Infantry Regiment landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day June 6, 1944 and were featured in the riveting opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan." This regiment lost one third of the 3,200 men who made the landing that day. Paul has visited the site of the landing at least five times during the preparation of this book.

Prof. Zigo is an Assistant Professor of History at Brookdale Community College and teaches American History, the History of World War II, Recent American History as well as Human Geography.  He earned a baccalaureate degree in history from Rutgers University in 1964, a master’s degree from Rider University in personnel and guidance in 1973 and a master’s degree from Temple University in recent American diplomatic and military history in August 2000.

In addition, Prof. Zigo is the Founder and Director of the Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution at Brookdale. The Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution is an educational resource center open to all interested in studying the historical impact and significance of the Second World War.

Mr. Zigo is a 30-year veteran of the United States Army Reserve, retiring as a Colonel in 1994. He is a 1989 graduate of the U.S Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Carlisle, PA. We look forward to a wonderful evening. Please mark the date.
