Christian McBurney returns to the Varnum Memorial Armory Museum to speak about his newly-released book, “Untold Stories from World War II Rhode Island”. This is a sequel to the 2017 book (“World War II Rhode Island”) that he co-authored with the Varnum Continental’s own Brian Wallin.
The new publication shares long-forgotten stories, from amazing secret innovations that were developed in the Ocean State for use by the armed forces overseas, to the training of future U.S. Presidents here in RI, and to recollections of Rhode Islanders when they were children or teenagers during the war years. Christian will be available to sign copies of the book after his talk.
Christian McBurney, is the editor and publisher of the website “Small State, Big History”, the online review of Rhode Island History.
