Paul Glenshaw returns to the Redwood library to share a sneak preview of his upcoming documentary The Lafayette Escadrille, and the discoveries he and the film’s team have made.

The film is the first-ever comprehensive documentary about the Escadrille, and covers the entire span of the First World War.
