As the tide turned on the Japanese one of the great sea battles took place over and around the Marianas Islands. These were to be a staging post for the Americans to leapfrog ever closer to the Japanese mainland. The initial assault goaded the Japanese to assault the American forces in what they thought could be their planned Kantai Kessen, or final decisive battle with the Americans but was to become what one American pilot called it “The Great Marianas Turkey Shoot”Views: 20 | Enquiries: 0
I am now retired after a varied career that started in the military but ended in financial services. Throughout I have had, and retained, a love of history, especially military history. As a result I have read widely on the subject but retain a special interest in the American Civil War. In retirement I have, over the last five years, written and presented talks through Microsoft PowerPoint. Essentially the subject matter is what interests me and from that interest grows the presentation. I believe that any talk needs to be well illustrated so that there is a natural flow to what is being discussed, after all it has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words.
My talks can be tailored to as short as 45 minutes but where there is a more complex subject they can run for up to 90 minutes.
My other great interest is travel and photography. This has allowed me to create presentation based upon my travels to some of the more exotic places in the world such as Bhutan, Nepal and Peru.
For calculation of travel expenses I live between Woking and Weybridge.
