The Battle of Midway was perhaps the most significant naval battle since Trafalgar. With the infamy of Pearl Harbor still fresh in minds, the men of the US Pacific Fleet waited for the Japanese Imperial Navy at Miday Island. This time the element of surprise had shifted, and the American forces became victors in the battle that marked the turning point of the war in the Pacific. This text brings together eyewitness accounts from the men who commanded and the men who fought on both sides. The narrative takes the reader into the thick of the action and shows exactly how American strategies and decisions led to victory and the defeat of the Japanese navy.
