The Battle of Midway

Availability: In stock

Few moments in American history tipped the course of events so suddenly and so dramatically as at the Battle of Midway. At dawn of June 4, 1942, a rampaging Japanese navy ruled the Pacific. By sunset, their vaunted carrier had been sunk and their grip on the Pacific loosened forever. Craig L. Symonds focuses on the leading American and Japanese figures involved in this pivotal battle, revealing how their decisions, great and small, determined its course and its outcome. Weaving together the many disparate threads of attack, Symonds builds masterfully to the five-minute window in which three of the four Japanese carriers were mortally wounded by American planes, chaning the course of the Pacific war in an eye-blink.
