|Midway, 1942: Facts & Documents|
|On 4 June 1942, near a tiny atoll located midway between America and Asia, a battle took place that radically changed the course of the Pacific War. Over 70 years have passed since then, but to this day historians—both professional and amateur—have not stopped arguing about what really happened there, and what was the cause (or causes) of that “Incredible Victory”. I, too, haven't got a definitive, indisputable answer to this question. So I have created this website for those who, like me, are seeking an answer. My goal is to amass in one place as many the Battle of Midway related facts and documents as possible, thereby facilitating the work of new researchers.||Project News|
