Lunchbox Lecture: The Raid at Pearl Harbor

While US strategy in 1941 was largely focused on the war in Europe, the bold carrier raid seized the initiative against increasing US pressure over Japan’s ongoing war in China. Captain Rick Jacobs will discuss the events of that terrible, heroic day—from the opening of Japan by Commodore Mathew Perry in the 1850’s through the devastation at Pearl Harbor on December 7.
