Midway
The Battle of Midway as told by John Dawson
(DATE CHANGE) Our own esteemed John Dawson will be giving a riveting presentation on the Battle of Midway. Six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States defeated Japan in one of the most decisive naval battles of World War II. Thanks in part to major advances in code breaking, the United States was able to preempt and counter Japan’s planned ambush of its few remaining aircraft carriers, inflicting permanent damage on the Japanese Navy. An important turning point in the Pacific campaign, the victory allowed the United States and its allies to move into an offensive position. Please come join us for some fellowship as we head into the holidays.
