Sixty-four years ago today the United States Navy changed the course of the Pacific War with its victory at Midway. I know of no other battle where so much changed in just a matter of minutes. At 10.20 that day, the Japanese possessed the strategic initiative in the Pacific and a decided naval superiority. At 10.30 both were lost.
