Endgame: A Virtual Remembrance of the End of World War II

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 @ 7:00 pm

The Medford Historical Society & Museum invites you to a Veterans Day presentation of “Endgame: A Virtual Remembrance of the End of World War II,” with Dr. Joseph McCarthy, and WWII scholar and Professor Emeritus at Suffolk University. “Endgame” recounts the last days of WWII 75 years ago, including the Allied thrust into Germany from the west; the mountain campaigns in northern Italy and the partisan fighting there; the Russian attack on Berlin; the sinking of the Wilhelm Gustloff, then the submarine campaign against Japanese supply lines; the bombing of Japanese home islands; the Okinawa campaign; and the decision to drop the atomic bomb.

This will be a fast-paced, dramatic tour, followed by Q & A with Dr. McCarthy.

Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.
