Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.1 Mb
Overview: Seven months after blitzing Pearl Harbor, the Japanese commander, Admiral Yamamoto, prepared to finish his work. He targeted a smaller United States force commanded by Chester Nimitz, a junior admiral. Given the superiority of the Japanese fleet, Yamamoto had every reason to expect victory.
But we had broken the Japanese code and Nimitz learned of Yamamoto’s plans. He responded with tactics of beautiful flexibility. The Japanese, ablaze with confidence, suffered a crippling reverse. Midway put our navy back on its feet.
Based on original archival research as well as exclusive interviews with survivors on both sides, this book is a majestic sequel to AT DAWN WE SLEPT, also by Gordon W. Prange.
