Seesaw: How November ’42 Shaped the Future

This is a hybrid event: virtual + in-person. Register on eventbrite.

Partially completed airstrip on the island of Guadalcanal, Aug. 11, 1942. Half a year of fighting took place over this tiny bit of acreage in the South Pacific.

By late 1942 the world had been fighting for years, with no end in sight. The five weeks from late October to early December saw campaigns, battles and developments which decisively turned the war to the Allies’ favor. Author and returning presenter, Stan Moore takes a fresh look at the personalities and events that led up to this critical period. He then examines five campaigns around the world through the month of November. Moore also discusses how the campaigns and events are inter-related in new and interesting ways. His sources are interviews, oral histories and previously unavailable diaries, photos, and letters.
