One thousand miles from anywhere lay a lonely outpost of coral and sea called Midway. It was here in 1942 where the U.S. and Japan fought one of the greatest naval battles of World War II that changed the course of history - THE BATTLE FOR MIDWAY. And it is here again where Titanic discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard now leads a team of experts and four World War II veterans on the voyage of their lives. They're on a race against time to do the impossible: find at least one of the five downed aircraft carriers. Join them as they pay their final respects to their fallen comrades.

Has anyone ever heard of A.V.G. And, or the exiedition force, we were killing "Japs" long before Dec. 7, 1941, so for sure we started the ruckus. It was a dam good little war I'd say!

My dad was in the US Navy and was at the Battle of Midway. He would never talk about the battle.

The Battle for Midway was won in a large part due to the efforts of Naval Cryptology personnel who had at least partially broken Japanese codes and thus knew the Japanese intentions. They (The Japanese) never really had much of a chance anyway; a small nation with almost no natural resources pitted against the power of the mightiest industrial nation the world has ever seen. It also didn't help their cause that the Japanese Army and Japanese Navy almost never spoke to each other.

By the time the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, they had the resources of most of East Asia. Agree about the code-breaking and the fact that the Americans did a much better job putting the industrial base to work.
