The inside story of the historic battle that turned the tide in the war for the Pacific Six months after Pearl Harbor, the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese Navy prepared a decisive blow against the United States. After sweeping through Asia and the South Pacific, Japana€™s military targeted the tiny atoll of Midway, an ideal launching pad for the invasion of Hawaii and beyond. The United States Navy would be waiting for them. Thanks to cutting-edge code-breaking technology, tactical daring, and a huge stroke of luck, the Americans under Admiral Chester W. Nimitz dealt the Japanese navy its first major defeat of the war. Three years of hard fighting remained, but it was at Midway that the tide turned. This vivid, in-depth bestseller is the first book to tell the story of the epic battle from both the American and Japanese sides. In Miracle at Midway, Gordon W. Prange, Donald M. Goldstein, and Katherine V. Dillon show how America won its first and greatest victory of the Pacific wara€”and how easily it could have been a defeat.... a bomb bay tank and take on half a bomb load, performing their own maintenance, when Ramsey sent them aloft. ... By an evil chance, on May 22 a work party testing the wiring of these demolition charges touched off the gasoline dump. ... Gasoline no longer could be spared for practice flights, however much needed.
