Synopsis
The historical documentary Battle of Midway travels back to 1942 to investigate the reasons for the United States' ill-prepared entrance into the Pacific front of World War II. It explores how and why the United States became victors in The Battle of Midway, a naval endeavor that somehow, despite the U.S. possessing a fraction of the artillery, gunships, fighter planes and naval carriers that the Japanese carroed, and despite scores of inexperienced pilots, enabled the United States to turn the tide against Japan. A combination of interviews with veterans and rare and precious archival footage establish the historical backdrop of this event, while computer-generated animated maps trace the location, strategies, and progress of the battle itself. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
