9781557505750: Midway: The Battle That Doomed Japan, the Japanese Navy's Story (Classics of Naval Literature)

The great air and sea battle of the Pacific, as seen through Japanese eyes . . .
On June 4, 1942, Admiral Yamamoto launched his attack on Midway with the largest fleet yet assembled in the Pacific. His strike force included 350 ships and over 100,000 officers and men. His objective: to smash the U.S. aircraft carriers based at Midway and break the Navy's power in World War II.
Now, for the first time, Japanese officers open the sealed archives to tell the authoritative, dramatic story of what really happened at Midway -- the battle that doomed Japan!
