Taranto: “The First Pearl Harbor” by Chris O’Connor

Saturday, February 1, 2020

1:30pm

Wenham Museum More than a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm executed a surprise attack on ships of the Italian Fleet anchored in the harbor of Taranto. Historians have seen the raid on Taranto as a precursor to the larger and more devistating strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy. In O’Connor’s book, he discusses the Taranto raid and its relevance to Pearl Harbor. 

Tickets available through the Wenham Museum.
