Speaker: John Landry Lt USNR -  USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum San Diego

Topic: Battle of Coral Sea – Battle of the Titans


John Landry returns to eaH to tell us about The Battle of Coral Sea, which was the first naval battle fought between aircraft carriers.  The first sea battle where all the battle damage was done entirely by aircraft.  The story of the daring, perilous, high stakes gamble by Admiral Nimitz to attack the Japanese navy that had the most powerful, lethal navy in the world. The Battle stopped the Japanese from capturing Port Moresby, stop the Japanese advance in the Pacific and saved Australia from Japanese aggression.  John is a docent at the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum in San Diego, California
