The Battle of Midway was one of the most decisive naval engagements of the 20th century. In this two-part series, we will review the early events of the Pacific War from Pearl Harbor to Midway, examining the ships, aircraft, and pilots from each side.
We will consider the critical role of intelligence as well as how air and naval doctrine played a vital role in the battle’s outcome. We will also explore the myths and inaccuracies that have grown up around the battle.
This is a multi-media presentation with lecture, video, photographs, and maps. The second presentation will be held Tuesday, Mar 27th.
This is a public program.
