As a follow-up to his latest book “Colors of War – not Black and White but Nuances of Gray”, Francois is in the process of completing his new book on the use of gliders in combat titled – “Gliders, A World Wide New Weapon”. Military gliders (a variation of the common glider) have been used by the military of various countries for carrying troops and heavy equipment into a war zone. They were used mainly during the WW II. These aircraft – with no engines – were towed into the air and most of the way to their target by military transport planes. Francois will cover American, British and German gliders and help us understand how effective this new weapon was in the world military strategy. His new book will be available sometime in 2020.
