December 5, 2013, Annual Pearl Harbor Program
We are pleased to announce that the speaker for our Twelfth Annual Pearl Harbor Commemoration Lecture will be noted author and historian Dr. Donald Goldstein. We are especially pleased to have Dr. Goldstein because his presentation will include insights into the Japanese outlook on the Pearl Harbor attack and the subsequent disastrous aftermath, a gap in our series which we have been trying to fill for over five years.
