First Wednesday Event:
The Battle of Leyte Gulf:
The Largest Naval Battle of WWII
The Battle of Leyte Gulf, is generally considered to be the largest naval battle of World War II and, by some criteria, possibly the largest naval battle in history. It was fought in the waters of the Leyte Gulf, near the Philippine Islands of Leyte, Samar and Luzon, from 23–26 October 1944, between combined American and Australian forces and the Imperial Japanese Navy. It was the first battle in which Japanese aircraft carried out organized kamikaze attacks.
