    • Hi Ross, I think this sounds like a great idea. I’m currently writing an article on the damage and fear caused by Butterfly Bombs (SD2 anti-personnel sub-munitions ) which were dropped on Grimsby (as well as many other places) during the Second World War. So this may sit well on a panel with you proposed paper and link along the ‘role of air power’ theme.

  2. Can anyone confirm that this CFP deadline has been pushed back to 15 June 2013? Looking to form a panel on Canadian forces in 1944, or the Italian campaign.
