Midway

Adventure, Midway, War

The Battle of Midway was without question a turning point of the Pacific War," says former Japanese Admiral Nobutake Kondo in his introduction to this book. In that battle, the Japanese suffered "a defeat so decisive and so grave that the details, like the plans, were kept the guarded secret of a limited circle, even within the Japanese Navy."

Not until Captain Fuchida and Commander Okumiya, both of whom took part in the over-all operation, brought out the Japanese edition of their book in 1951, did the Japanese public learn for the first time the story of the disastrous naval defeat which turned the tide of the Pacific War.

 

"A most valuable historical contribution to our knowledge of Japanese naval planning and operations, from the months leading up to the outbreak of war through the first six months of the war itself."

—from the Foreword by Admiral Raymond A. Spruance,

USN (Ret.)
