    Description
    At Midway, the US Fleet turned the tables on the Japanese warships . . .

    With the humiliating defeat at Pearl Harbor by the Japanese Navy still fresh in their minds, the men of the American Pacific Fleet awaited the opportunity to retaliate. This was to happen at Midway Island, north-west of the Hawaiian Islands, where American warships were positioned expecting the arrival of their enemy.

    When the battle was over, Japan had lost her four carriers, a cruiser and over 300 aircraft. America, unusually the underdog, had won the greatest naval victory since Trafalgar.

    As with 'At Dawn We Slept', 'Miracle At Midway' brings together eyewitness accounts from the men who commanded and the men who fought on both sides. The sweeping narrative depicts the strategies that led to America's victory and transports the reader into the thick of the action. All the tension and excitement of a closely fought battle are condensed into this gripping account.
