WWII in the Pacific with Stanley Carpenter / Kingston
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us at the Kingston Free Library for a lecture series about WWII in the Pacific. The lecture will be led by Professor Stanley D.M. Carpenter and will include PowerPoint visuals followed by a question and answer period.

Professor Carpenter is the Strategy and Policy Department Head at the United States Naval War College in the College of Distance Education, teaches and administers the Strategy and War nonresident programs and serves as the Command Historian.  He holds degrees from Florida State University (Ph.D.), University of St Andrews (Scotland) (M.Litt.) and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (A.B. with Honors) as well as graduate studies at King’s College, University of London and the U.S. Naval War College in National Security and Strategic Studies.

Part I – “Tora, Tora, Tora!” – Pearl Harbor and the Coming of War

With the surprise Imperial Japanese Navy's attack on U.S. military facilities on Oahu in the Hawaiian Islands on Sunday morning, 7 December 1941 followed by attacks on U.S. bases in the Philippine Islands, the United States was thrust into the Second World War. On the following day, Congress passed a Declaration of War against the Japanese Empire; Germany and Italy soon declared war on the U.S., thus, the nation was fully engaged in the war in Europe, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean. The first lecture in the World War II in the Pacific series addresses the Pearl Harbor/Oahu attack and the first few months of the war as the U.S. struggled to recover from the loss of the bulk of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and the Pacific air forces.

Registration is preferred. To register please call 783-8254 or email
