The Battle of Midway: The Inside Story of the Four-Day Attack

The World War II naval battle about Midway is supposed to be a lot better (sorry Pearl Harbor fans). For those of you who don’t know of Midway, it was a pivotal four-day attack that happened near the Hawaiian Midway Islands in 1942, six months after Pearl Harbor, by the way. The battle serves as a still-relevant lesson on how to successfully use intelligence at all levels of war.

So, before you go see the movie, you should know the real facts. Aren’t you curious?
