PrintAn Air Force Academy history professor will be lecturing on cable’s CSPAN-3 as part of the channel’s “Lecture on History” series.

Lt. Col. Grant Weller will be on the air at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday  to talk about World War II, the academy said.

“Professor Weller and his class discuss American and Japanese military strategies in the months leading up to the attacks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki,” CSPAN said on its website. “The class also covers Japanese social and political attitudes, American motivation for dropping the bomb and the considerations involved in choosing target cities.”
