Webinar: 78th Anniversary of the Battle of Midway
When: Friday, June 5 at 10:00 a.m. HST LIVE on Zoom
If the attack on Pearl Harbor launched America into World War II, then the Battle of Midway is best remembered for turning the tide of the war in the Allies’ favor.
In early June 1942, the U.S. Navy and Imperial Japanese Navy engaged in an epic battle in the Pacific Theater that resulted in America’s first decisive victory in the war that would define a generation.
Join us as we explore contemporary perspectives about the Battle of Midway with guest presenters Rear Admiral Brian P. Fort, Commander, U.S. Naval Forces, Japan/Commander, Navy Region Japan; author Jonathon Parshall; and Craig L. Symonds, Ph.D, Professor of History Emeritus at the U.S. Naval Academy.
