Project Zebra: Lecture & Book Signing

Saturday, October 12, 2019
1:00 PM

Join the Museum of the Albemarle for a lecture and book signing on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 1 p.m. in collaboration with the Elizabeth City Historical Association’s 23rd Annual Ghost Walk.  Author M. G. Crisci will provide a lecture on the book Project Zebra:  Roosevelt and Stalin’s Top-Secret Mission to Train 300 Soviet Airmen in America.  

According to M. G. Crisci’s book, “In 1942, Hilter’s U-boats destroyed 60 percent of allied war materials on the high seas.  To re-open those supply lines, Roosevelt and Stalin devised Project Zebra – a top-secret mission to build 185 huge, advanced Soviet war planes in Philadelphia and train over 300 Soviet airmen in Elizabeth City to fly them." 

“The 18-month military mission exceeded expectations.  In the process, Project Zebra also became a historical human event that demonstrated the power of mutual respect and trust for ages."
