Don Brown is a wonderful presenter - he brings history to life, with terrific pithy and sometimes humorous details . Both this and his seminar last year on the Code Breakers at Bletchley Park were both fascinating studies of WWII history. I have been to both places and thought I knew alot about both, but Don Brown added so much to that. Really enjoyable class.
Don's presentation was well researched. Provided historical "tidbits" that someone who has spent a great deal of time studying subject matter would know.
Don is an excellent presenter. I've zoomed into a number of presentations in the past (has it been 3 years since we've been zooming as a result of COVID).
As COVID is "considered" endemic, looking forward to traveling to UK next year. Sorry but this year's Europe trip is with OATs and includes the French & Italian riveras.
Dan Brown led a fast-paced, detail-rich, and infinitely informative visit to the Churchill War Rooms drawing parallels to events of WWII as it played its course . This was an exceptionally well-developed and elucidating presentation.
Don Brown's presentation on the Churchill War Rooms is so informative and detailed I almost felt like I was there. He gave us lots of deep historical context and insight into Churchill's and other's work in the War Rooms and their importance to the war effort. And it's all loaded with that English savoir faire that is so very charming!
Don was excellent...insightful and interesting. Highly recommended
