The Battle of Java Sea and the USS Houston
Mark your calendars to join us on December 6-8, 2012, for the next International Conference on WWII, The End of the Beginning, when we focus on the decisive events of 1942. Despite serious losses and setbacks early in the war, America and her Allies learned from their mistakes and slowly began to roll back the Axis gains. The conference title comes from a Winston Churchill address on November 10, 1942, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

We’ve just uploaded Captain Rick Jacob’s Lecture on the Battle of the Java Sea, part of our twice monthly Lunchbox Lecture series.
