New York Times bestseller: The true story of the WWII naval battle portrayed in the Roland Emmerich film is "something special among war histories" (Chicago Sun-Times).   Six months after Pearl Harbor, the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese Navy prepared a decisive blow against the United States. After sweeping through Asia and the South Pacific, Japan's military targeted the tiny atoll of Midway, an ideal launching pad for the invasion of Hawaii and beyond.   But the US Navy would be waiting for them. Thanks to cutting-edge code-breaking technology, tactical daring, and a significant stroke of luck, the Americans under Adm. Chester W. Nimitz dealt Japan's navy its first major defeat in the war. Three years of hard fighting remained, but it was at Midway that the tide turned.   This "stirring, even suspenseful narrative" is the first book to tell the story of the epic battle from both the American and Japanese sides (Newsday). Miracle at Midway reveals how America won its first and greatest victory of the Pacific war--and how easily it could have been a loss.… (mere)

This is an excellent, well written account of one of the most importnat battles of the 20th century. While many battles have been described as 'turning points' the battle of Midway truly can be described as a pivotal moment in recent history. Prange was probably one of the most knowledgeable writers dealing with the events leading up to Pearl Harbor and the ensuing battles and events that occurred in the Pacific War between the forces of the Empire of Japan and the United States. Prange's description of the events, strategies, tactics and ultimate outcome provide the reader with a stirring and comprehensive understanding of the magnitude of the stakes involved and the ultimate (and to pardon Walter Lord's description) ' incredible' victory achieved by the U.S. Navy. Pange provides several explanations for the American's improbable victory: superior intelligence; Japan's over confidence and luck, but what one understands from reading Prange's compelling narration is that victory was truly the result of the brave and dedicated men of the United States Navy: those members of what was truly were and remain in all our memories - the Greatest Generation.

1887 Miracle at Midway, by Gordon W. Prange - Donald M. Goldstein - Katherine V. Dillon (read 1 Dec 1984) Since on 16 Sep 1967 I read Rendezvous at Midway by Pat Frank one would think I need not read another book on that June 1942 battle, but since I so appreciated Prange's book on Pearl Harbor, which I read 8 Sep 1982, I read this book.. But this book is not well-written--it is full of mention of individual names and jumps confusedly around. The battle was a great decisive battle, and we can be glad it worked out as it did. ( )

An amazing account of the turning point of World War II in the Pacific. If anyone is looking for some valuable insight into what turned the tides to the Americans in the Pacific after the Day of Infamy they should read this book. In no other book have I ever found such a lucid and objective discussion of the events in June 1942 at Midway then I did in this book. ( )

The most valuable part is the extensive use of Japanese accounts. They provide tremendous insight. ( )
