WW2: The Battle of Midway.

(Pacific)  During WW2 and 6 months after Pearl harbour the Japanese decided to go for the killer blow which they hoped would take the US out of the War and sue for peace. However things didn't go as planned for the Japanese and they lost big time, 4 carriers big time.This critical US victory stopped the growth of the Japanese Empire  in the Pacific and put the United States in a position to begin shrinking the Japanese empire through a series of island-hopping invasions and several even larger naval battles. Why these's even a new film coming out next month which relates what happened in 1942 onto the silver screen (again)

Unfortunately Hollywood has a nasty habit of embellishing the facts in which to promote its pictures , hey there's nothing wrong with that, Its just that people walk away without the full facts and are happy to believe what they saw on the screen as the truth. So if you really want to know what transpired regards the Battle of Midway have a butchers at this descriptive video. Only one problem, its in 2 parts and the second hasn't been knocked out yet. But I'll post it when it does. But believe me when this 40 min video is well worth watching.
