A day that molded history, in the middle of the Pacific.
By hhpodesta February 17, 2017
The few hours the battle of Midway last, were arguably the most intense and dramatic in the Pacific war. It was also an unprecedented event at the time, it only took a day of exchanges of waves of carrier air wings attacks (both fleets never came within range of enemy cannons), then when it was over, the balance of forces in the Pacific had suffered A drastic change. After Pearl Harbor attack, came a lot of japanese conquests, then came the US response: the Doolitle raid in Tokio. So finally, Japan decided to go on an all-or-nothing battle, with two goals: to take Midway and, most importantly, to destroy the US Aircraft Carrier Force. Admiral Yamamoto devised a meticulous plan to take the enemy fleet into battle, and then fall into a trap that, if it proved successful, that is, destroy at least two enemy aircraft carriers, could give Japan a free hand during at least, one year. But in war nothing goes according to plan... But in war nothing goes according to plan... The book analyse how this plans evolved in both sides, especially by the work of intelligence carried out on the one side and the lack of it on the other. This book, as usual with the Campaign series, analyse commanders, the planing, equipments and the armies and fleets, before and during the battle and it tells the story from both sides, attacker and defender. Full color 3-D ‘bird’s-eye-views’, and color drawings of battle scenes, Pilots in uniforms or equipments used in this battle, and maps as well as black and white photographs that support's the text. Spoiler Alert ahead! - The book falls with all the burden of guilt to Yamamoto and his complicated plan, but he was not to blame for the scarce Japanese intelligence service, nor for the excessive trust that had the rest of the imperial high command.
