Kings and Generals animated historical documentary series on Modern Warfare continues with a video on the Naval War in the Mediterranean Theatre during World War 2, as the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy and Royal Air Force are looking for ways to weaken the Italian navy – the Regia Marina. To that end, the command decides to attack the main base of the Italian base at Taranto. This daring operation became an inspiration for the Japanese attack on the US at Pearl Harbor, which kicked off the Pacific War.
