The Battle of Midway: The Naval Institute Guide to the U.S. Navy's Greatest Victory
The Battle of Midway: The Naval Institute Guide
The best way for today’s sailors to learn about a battle is from those who fought it. The Battle of Midway, commemorated annually in the U.S. Navy, warrants close attention. This Naval Institute guide includes some of the most vibrant and informed accounts by individuals who fought on both sides of the June 1942 battle. The anthology pulls together memoirs, articles, excerpts from other Naval Institute books, and relevant government documents to help readers understand what happened and explain why the battle was so significant to the naval service. The core of the book focuses on events leading up to the battle and the battle itself, with a separate section examining how others have interpreted the battle’s often desperate engagements. When the U.S. Navy stopped the Japanese steamroller off Midway Island, it not only turned the progress of the war but set the Navy’s foundation for future counter offensives. The Navy’s comeback spread led to the Solomon Islands and on to the other key strategic areas in the Pacific. While many know that Midway was a crucial American victory, they often do not know the details of the battle.

I thought maybe I was possessed. Maybe the holy spirit? Maybe something was downloaded into me? I never believed in religion but I always believed in some sort of universal power. As it turns out, everything is indeed connected and if you are reading this, it is because it is time for you to learn the truths of our existence. You are not here by chance. There is no such thing.This is where I will undoubtedly lose some of you. Whether you accept this or not, the fact is that you have been lied to your entire life. People you trust are not who you think they are. Some people love you very much, but the only thing they know is what they were taught by another human. They wholeheartedly believe this information simply because someone of apparent authority taught them it was so. This is called secondary knowledge.
