This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on World War II - European Theater - Battle of Taranto. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Taranto took place on the night of 11–12 November 1940 during World War II between British naval forces and Italian naval forces.
The Royal Navy launched the first all-aircraft ship-to-ship naval attack in history, launching a small number of obsolescent biplane torpedo bombers from the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious in the Mediterranean Sea.
The attack struck the battle fleet of the Regia Marina at anchor in the harbor of Taranto using aerial torpedoes despite the shallow depth of the water. The devastation wrought by the British carrier-launched aircraft on the large Italian warships was the beginning of the ascendancy of naval aviation over the big guns of battleships.
