Post subject: Battle of Midway

Seventy-eight years ago this week one of the most, if not the most, important naval battles of WW 2 for the United States took place near Midway Island.

Part One of a Naval Training film from 1950 based upon the 1948 document "NAVPERS 91067, The Battle of Midway Including the Aleutian Phase, June 3 to June 14, 1942: Strategical and Tactical Analysis by Richard W Bates" (later Rear Admiral Bates) at the Naval War college.

I have never been able to find part two of this training film. Sad

Warning!!
Period prejudices towards the Japanese are still very much evident in this 1950 program.

Post subject: Re: Battle of Midway

I thought I had posted Montemayor's video on Midway from the Japanese perspective here last year but I must have forgotten. Since the video series is about Midway I may as well keep it in this thread now. Cool



After an almost 15 month delay Part Two, which is now Parts Two and Three, of the Midway Battle are out.

The Battle of Midway: The American Perspective and The Strategic Consequences of the Battle (3/3)
Link to video: https://youtu.be/WHO6xrSF7Sw

I am not exaggerating when I say his videos rival several that have been professionally done.

Montemayor has several other really good documentaries at his YouTube channel.
