  • Osher Marin Jewish Community Center (map)

Did you know that the west coast was crawling with Japanese submarines in the weeks following the attack on Pearl Harbor? Or that they operated up and down the coast virtually unopposed for nearly a year? Japanese combat subs not only sunk numerous American merchant vessels during this time they even shelled the American mainland on more than one occasion. Based on Mr. Geoghegan's bestselling, non-fiction book, Operation Storm: Japan's Top Secret Submarines and Its Plan to Change the Course or World War II, this lavishly illustrated talk tells the story of the Japanese subs that patrolled the west coast during the opening months of World War II using interviews Mr. Geoghegan conducted with the Japanese officers who participated in the attacks. You can register at the link below, or at the Osher Jewish Community Center in San Rafael, CA: https://www.marinjcc.org/events/2019/10/29/adults-learning-unlimited/learning-unlimited-japanese-submarines-off-the-west-coast/79523/
