The Battle of Midway is generally considered the turning point in the Pacific in WWII. The Japanese Navy came in to the battle on June 3, 1942 supremely confident, and with good reason! Two days and four fleet carriers later, the party was over and the US Navy was on the road to victory. In the end it took three more years and thousands of lives on both sides to finish the war off, but Japanese expansion was over.
This Operation is about remembering the Battle of Midway, 70 years on.
