The Battle of the Coral Sea was a strategic victory for the United States, the first time in the Pacific war Japanese forces had been thwarted from taking their objective. Tactically, however, the Japanese had won, sinking more than twice the tonnage they had lost. But the tide of the war was beginning to turn. And the real test of what the losses meant to both sides in the Coral Sea would come a month later at Midway. In this webcast, you will hear from Vice Adm. Paul Stroop, who served as a flag secretary aboard USS Lexington. Courtesy of U.S. Naval Institute Oral History Program.
