Incredible Victory (Classics of War) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A remarkable account of what has been called 'the most decisive naval battle since Trafalgar.'--Los Angeles Times

Synopsis:

"A remarkable account of what has been called the most significant and decisive naval battle since Trafalgar.'" — Los Angeles Times

This is the minute-by-minute drama of the 20th century's most stunning naval battle. By any standards, the American fleet at Midway was hopelessly outclassed, facing a Japanese navy that was brilliant, experienced, and all-conquering. The American forces had no right to win — but they did, and in so doing changed the course of World War II.
