As a boy, evacuated to Australia from Singapore, Hamish Donaldson was all too aware of the seemingly unstoppable advance of the Japanese from December 1941 to May 1942.

The first two aircraft carrier battles (The Coral Sea and Midway) marked the first turning point in this war and the long road to Japan’s eventual defeat. In this talk, Hamish reviews the Japanese strategic objectives before his riveting account of how these battles were won and lost. Haslemere Museum, £5
