Lecture
The attack on Pearl Harbor and the invasion of the Philippines changed our lives significantly.
 
There are countless books on that period and the role Gen. Douglas MacArthur played, but there are many unanswered questions: Was MacArthur able to prepare for the impending war with Japan? Was there complacency; a sense that America was invincible? How could a surprise aerial attack occur at Clark Field destroying much of the Air Force planes.
 
Jim Zobel will enlighten us on those very crucial first months of the Japanese invasion of the Philippines and the pivotal role of Douglas MacArthur.
