"The Battle of Leyte Gulf had everything: aircraft carriers attacking each other; an old fashioned battleship duel; an amphibious landing; MacArthur returning to the Philippines; and the first kamikazes. It was the last battle at which the Imperial Japanese Navy could manage substantial resistance, and it was a much closer run thing than it should have been. This talk will look at the Battle of Leyte Gulf and discuss what happened, why, and how the phrase “the world wonders” caused the American Admiral ‘Bull' Halsey to break into tears.”
Learn how to take stunning portraits with your camera or cell phone. Disposable cameras can also be provided.
This workshop will last two hours and will be taught by photography teacher Amanda Archibald.
