Midway 1942

By Mark Stille. Illustrated by Howard Gerrard.

The battle of Midway was the turning point of the war in the Pacific. After a series of stunning victories, Japan’s naval air arm received a devastating blow that saw the destruction of four aircraft carriers. This battle, which pitted four Japanese carriers against three US carriers, ended in one action Japan’s dream of controlling the Pacific and handed the naval initiative to the US Navy under the command of Admiral Chester Nimitz. Taking advantage of recent research into the battle, this new study seeks to dispel the many myths still lingering around this pivotal encounter, with original artwork and detailed maps.

Perfect

Everything was perfect. My husband is a Veteran and enjoyed this gift very much. Thank you.

Enjoyed the book I always like reading real history.
One of the cups was completely destroyed, sent you an email when received got no reply, not happy on this
Got no geek patch or black tears.
What I did get intact (book & 1 cup) proved to be quite expensive…………

Loved it so much we bought it twice

My parents brought this shirt back as a souvenir for my 4 year old daughter. She wore it constantly until the day she discovered scissors 😭. She cut it up and was so proud of herself until I freaked out, then we both cried… I would usually take this opportunity to teach a lesson about scissors and say “sorry, you’re SOL.” But this gift was so loved and I felt she learned her lesson when she realized she had ruined it rather than improving it.

Great quality sticker

I bought it to put with my photo book and keepsakes from my trip to visit this incredible memorial.

Great coin

Just a beautiful tribute to those who served at Pearl Harbor on that fateful December 7th.
