Taranto, "The First Pearl Harbor"
Author Chris O’Connor will be at the Patton Homestead talking about his book “Taranto: The Raid, The Observer, The Aftermath”.
In O’Connor’s book Taranto: The Raid, The Observer, The Aftermath, he talks about the Taranto raid and tells the entire story of Taranto and its relevance to Pearl Harbor.
More than a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm executed a surprise attack on ships of the Italian Fleet anchored in the harbor of Taranto. Historians have seen the raid on Taranto as a precursor to the larger and more devastating strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy.
