Join Mark Albertson in a four-week series exploring the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Korean War.

Week Three: The Helicopter

Mark Albertson will discuss the helicopter, the aircraft that came of age in Korea. The helicopter delivered wounded to doctors’ care in rapid fashion as opposed to earth-bound transportation. The helicopter would also be used for delivering troops to the battle zone; stores and equipment; observation and reconnaissance, and directing artillery fire. Albertson will also discuss how the atomic bomb helped spur the development of the helicopter into a valued implement of war.
