Historians talked about the turning point in the Pacific theater during World War II. Craig Symonds argued the Battle of Midway was the decisive engagement that shifted momentum in the Allies favor, while Richard Frank asserted that the Guadalcanal campaign thwarted future Axis plans and resulted in a permanent blow to the Japanese war machine. A video clip from “Victory at Sea” was played without sound. After each author made his presentation, they held a discussion and responded to questions from members of the audience.

“Pacific War Turning Point: Midway or Guadalcanal?” was part of The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Distinguished Speakers Series WWII & NYC of the The New York Historical Society. close
