Craig L. Symonds presents World War II at Sea: A Global History
Noon Presentation | 1:00 pm Book Signing in the Museum Store located in the Louisiana Memorial Pavilion
Join us for a special lagniappe lecture featuring the author of Lincoln and His Admirals (co-winner of the 2009 Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize), The Battle of Midway (Best Book of 2011, Military History Quarterly), and Operation Neptune (winner of the Samuel Eliot Morison Award for Naval Literature).
Craig L. Symonds has established himself as one of the finest naval historians of today. World War II at Sea represents his crowning achievement: a complete narrative of the naval war and all of its belligerents, on all of the world's oceans and seas, between 1939 and 1945.
Many have argued that World War II was dominated by naval operations; few have shown how and why this was the case. Through this presentation, Symonds will combine precision with storytelling verve, expertly illuminating not only the mechanics of large-scale warfare on (and below) the sea, but also offering wisdom into the nature of the war itself.
The program is free and open to the public.
