Midway by Richard Freeman
Never was there a naval battle like Midway.
It was fought at a place thousands of miles from land, by hundreds of planes over distances of hundreds of miles. It saw four massive Japanese aircraft carriers pitted against three similarly huge American carriers in a battle for domination of the Pacific.
The battle is the story of the young Japanese empire seeking to challenge the established industrial power of America. Japan had smashed America at Pearl Harbour, and shaken her at Coral Sea. Now Japan was ready to risk it all in one mighty attempt to drive the United States Navy from the Pacific Ocean.
Richard Freeman graduated in mathematics before following a career in distance education. He now writes on naval history. His other books with Endeavour Media include A Close Run Thing and Operation Armageddon.
