This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Battle of Cape Matapan. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Cape Matapan was a naval engagement fought in World War II on the southwest coast of Greece's Peloponnesian peninsula. Acting on intercepted signals broken by the Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, a force of British Royal Navy ships accompanied by several Royal Australian Navy vessels, under the command of British Admiral Andrew Cunningham, intercepted and sank or severely damaged several ships of the Italian Regia Marina under Admiral Angelo Iachino.
The Battle of Cape Matapan was a decisive victory for the Royal Navy and gave it control of the eastern Mediterranean until the fall of Crete in June. In the fighting, the British lost 3 killed, while the Italians lost 3 heavy cruisers, 2 destroyers, and over 2,400 dead. Vittorio Veneto had been badly damaged in the fighting.
Radioing Rome, he alerted the Italians to the location of the battle's survivors and then left the area. A military disaster for the Regia Marina, Cape Matapan effectively broke its back and the next time it emerged in force was to surrender to Cunningham in 1943.
