Battle of Midway

The turning point of World War II in the Pacific, the Battle of Midway was fought June 4-7, 1942, and ended in a major defeat for the Imperial Japanese Navy, whose losses included four aircraft carriers, Akagi, Kaga, Soryu, and Hiryu. The U.S. Navy lost the aircraft carrier Yorktown and the destroyer Hammann. The U.S. victory ended a Japanese bid to take Midway Atoll, which would have posed a direct threat to Hawaii. After their shattering defeat in the Battle of Midway, the Japanese were essentially on the defensive for the remainder of World War II.
