Naval Warfare History

Navy.com:

75 years ago, on June 4th, 1942, the fate of the Pacific rested on the shoulders of America’s Sailors at Midway. Find out how this inspiring story of bravery and sacrifice turned the tide of WWII, and forever changed the course of history.

I recall reading about the Battle of Midway as a boy. In a single day, the US Navy sank the four Japanese aircraft carriers sent to destroy the US’ forward base at Midway, and sent their battle groups hurrying back home for repair. It was perhaps our Navy’s finest day.

Navy.com has a thorough compilation of the precursors to that day, the battle, and the carrier-centric legacy our Navy embraces to this day.
