Book Talk with Steven K. Bailey

April 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Author Steven K. Bailey will speak about his new book, Target Hong Kong: A True Story of U.S. Navy Pilots at War (Osprey/Bloomsbury, 2024). Target Hong Kong recounts the untold story of the U.S. Navy airstrikes on Japanese-occupied Hong Kong during Operation Gratitude in 1945. The month-long operation in the South China Sea involved nearly a hundred U.S. Navy warships, including thirteen aircraft carriers carrying close to a thousand planes. Target Hong Kong brings this massive operation down to a human scale by recounting the navy air raids through the experiences of one British POW and six American naval aviators who flew, fought, and sometimes died in the fiery skies over Hong Kong.
