The Battle of Midway (Pivotal Moments in American History)

The Battle of Midway - Craig L. Symonds very solid, detailed, and smoothly flowing battle history. most people know about the 'doomed sacrifice' of the 110-knot torpedo bombers, but do you know that section had peeled off from a completely lost and misdirected group apparently run by a commander who placed loyalty above talent? history is written in a matter of minutes as, famously, the Japanese zeros are dispersed by their destruction of the TB Catalinas, leaving an open gap for the dive bombers which write history...

very readable; very flowing
