The Battle of Midway - Peter C. Smith

Spellmount, 1996, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ would be Very Good were it not for the triangular creased, with closed tear, to the foot of the lower panel at the spine.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. For six staggeringly successful months the Imperial Japanese Navy had swept all before it, her ships and aircraft devastating American and British resistance. The Japanese, led by Admirals Yamamoto and Nagumo, seemed invincible. Until Midway. If the Japanese could take the tiny atoll of Midway, the Pacific would be theirs. So, on the 4th of June 1942, began the most decisive sea and air battle of the Second World War.
