There was at least a 90% probability AGAINST the Pearl Harbor attack ever occurring. Yet we know that it happened in 1941. Find out how such an incredibly unlikely event actually occurred. How did the US Army and Navy both botch impending early warnings, insuring total surprise? Did Japanese submarines attack? Who actually fired the first shot in the Pacific War? Newsreels of the time show shattered Pacific Fleet warships burning furiously. How devastating was this air raid; what went right and what went wrong for both sides? (Three 40-45 minute meetings. each followed by 5-10 minute discussion).

Join us for one or all three seminars on this fascinating and important event in United States history. Presented by Ray Rossa with slides.

Ray has had a strong interest in the military which developed throughout childhood to the present day. Subsequently, he served as an active-duty commissioned officer with the United States military and was assigned to the Armor School at Fort Knox, Kentucky. His active service in a combat unit provides a unique, first-hand experience background. After his honorable discharge his keen interest in military history continued to build. Consequently, Ray has invested thousands of hours researching military history topics both online and by studying the most authoritative printed texts. An experienced presenter, he is able to explain the most complex concepts in clear, logical and easy to understand terms and vivid word pictures.

He has delivered seminars for a wide range of organizations, including: historical societies, veterans’ and other service organizations, colleges, public libraries and senior living communities. He earned a Master of Arts degree in Psychology from West Chester University, West Chester, PA and taught credit and non-credit courses for DeVry University as well as Montgomery and Delaware County Community colleges.
