Midway / Battle of Midway (1976) DVD9
The Battle of Midway, which took place in early June of 1942, proved to be a turning point in the U.S. campaign in the Pacific during World War II. Intercepting Japanese naval communications, the U.S. was able to head off an assault on Midway Island. As a result of the battle, the Japanese lost four aircraft carriers, a cruiser, over 300 aircraft and some 3,500 men. The film Midway (1976) introduces the story of a fictional Captain Matt Garth, a Naval Air Wing commander who is recuperating from wounds suffered during Pearl Harbor. His relationship with his son, Thomas, becomes strained when the latter marries a woman of Japanese descent, providing the main dramatic thread. The film also vividly depicts the battle and the military personages involved, chief among them Admiral Chester W. Nimitz. On the other hand we see a well-balanced portrayal of Japanese Admiral Yamamoto and his subordinates as they try to craft a plan to devastate the American Pacific fleet in one massive strike, compelling the Americans to sue for peace.
