At a Glance

Join us on the anniversary of the fateful attack on Pearl Harbor for a poignant lecture with Dr. Spencer Jones, esteemed historian & author. On this day in 1941, the Japanese navy launched a surprise assault that forever changed the course of history. Through intricate planning, they aimed to cripple the United States. Fleet—leading President Roosevelt declared it "a day which will live in infamy." In this lecture, Dr. Jones will discuss the pivotal events and devastating losses of that day, and explore the enduring legacy that still reverberates in military and global history.
