Summary
This is a paperbound reprint of a 2005 book. Authors Parshall and Tully offer an intensive re-examination of the performance of the Japanese navy during the critical Battle of Midway that turned the tide of naval power in World War II. The authors' multi-faceted approach looks critically at earlier histories of the battle and Japanese naval doctrine and other Japanese sources. It also debunks myths and corrects errors passed on as fact through several preceding histories of the battle. The book examines the strategic context of the battle, provides a detailed narrative of the battle itself, and also examines why the Japanese lost at Midway and repercussions in the larger context of the war.
