Stephen A. Bourque, author of "Beyond the Beach: The Allied War Against France," is coming to Mississippi State to present a book talk that is free and open to the public. Bourque's book examines the Allied air war against France in 1944 and explores the relationship between ground and air operations and its effects on the French population. A book signing follows his presentation. After 20 years of enlisted and commissioned service in the U.S. Army, Bourque obtained his Ph.D. at Georgia State University and taught history at several military and civilian schools and universities, including the School of Advanced Military Studies at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, where he serves as professor emeritus.
