Miracle at MidwayBook - 1982
With the infamy of Pearl Harbor still fresh in their minds, the men of the U.S. Pacific Fleet waited for the Japanese Imperial Navy at Midway Island. This time, however, the element of surprise had shifted, and the American troops would be the victors of a battle that marked the turning point of the war in the Pacific. Like At Dawn We Slept, Miracle at Midway brings together eyewitness accounts from the men on both sides-those who commanded and those who fought. The sweeping narrative takes you into the thick of the action and shows exactly how American strategies and decisions led to America's triumphant victor and the crushing defeat of Japan. Book jacket.
