A dramatization of the battle that was widely heralded as a turning point of the Pacific Theatre of World War II.
May 1941. After the Doolittle Raid Japan aims to expand its territory in the Pacific, to make such raids less likely. Their next target: Midway Island. However, the US Navy is intercepting their messages and has partially cracked their encryption code, forewarning them of Japan’s intentions. Two US aircraft carrier task groups are sent to Midway, resulting in the one of the most important battles in history.
