The Battle of the Coral Sea -- did it save Australia?

The year 2002 was the 60th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.

This battle has long been celebrated and commemorated in Australia. For many years it was celebrated as the battle that ‘saved’ Australia. Did it? Should we still see this event as a special one in Australia’s history that deserves special recognition?

This activity allows participants to examine closely the Battle of the Coral Sea and to reach their own conclusions on its significance for Australia.
