The National World War II Museum in New Orleans presents Turning Point. The Doolittle Raid, Battle of the Coral Sea, and Battle of Midway, an exhibition on view July 8, 2012.

In the early, dark days of World War II, the remnants of the United States’ Pacific Fleet fought a defensive withdrawal as the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese forces extended the borders of their empire closer and closer to the US mainland. Stopping the Japanese onslaught would come down to a woefully out-gunned and outnumbered task force of aircraft carriers, diligent intelligence work and a handful of intrepid aviators.

In conjunction with the 70th anniversary of these tide-turning events, The National WWII Museum presents Turning Point: The Doolittle Raid, Battle of the Coral Sea, and Battle of Midway. Experience the suspense, heroism and ultimate triumph that has inspired Hollywood and historians for seven decades.
