It is widely regarded as the definitive assessment of the events surrounding one of the most daring and brilliant naval operations of all time.

The inside story of the historic battle that turned the tide in the war for the Pacific Six months after Pearl Harbor, the seemingly invincible Imperial Japanese Navy prepared a decisive blow against the United States. After sweeping through Asia and the South Pacific, Japan’s military targeted the tiny atoll of Midway, an ideal launching pad for the invasion of Hawaii and beyond. The United States Navy would be waiting for them. Thanks to cutting-edge code-breaking technology, tactical daring, and a huge stroke of luck, the Americans under Admiral Chester W. Nimitz dealt the Japanese navy its first major defeat of the war. Three years of hard fighting remained, but it was at Midway that the tide turned. This vivid, in-depth bestseller is the first book to tell the story of the epic battle from both the American and Japanese sides. In Miracle at Midway, Gordon W. Prange, Donald M. Goldstein, and Katherine V. Dillon show how America won its first and greatest victory of the Pacific war—and how easily it could have been a defeat.

A valuable record of major events, his life's story is also one of a man swept along by his times. Reared in the vanished culture of early twentieth-century Japan, war hero Fuchida returned home to become a simple farmer. After a scandalous love affair came his remarkable conversion to Christianity and years of touring the world as an evangelist.

The story of two men who are usually given only one or two lines in most books but were truly American heroes and who, unlike many on that fateful morning, were not asleep.' —Donald M. Goldstein, Ph.D. Professor Emeritus, University of Pittsburgh and co-author of 'At Dawn We Slept: The Untold Story of Pearl Harbor,' 'God's Samuai: Lead Pilot at Pearl Harbor' and 'Dec. 7, 1941:The Day the Japanese Attacked Pearl Harbor.' 'Meek begins his story a week before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and presents the two pilots as young officers who had the 'chutzpah' to act on their own...;' —Dr. George M. Watson Jr., Senior Historian, Air Force Historical Studies. '...'The Other Pearl Harbor, the Army Air Corps & its Heroes on Dec. 7, 1941,' makes up a good bit for the poor coverage the Army personnel and facilities have been given before.' —Col. Gail Halvorsen USAF Ret., Famed 'Candy Bomber' of the Berlin Airlift. 'Through seventy years what happened to the Army Air Corps during the Dec. 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor...mostly disappeared. But Author John Martin Meek...puts it into perspective with the Navy's vast and tragic losses.' —Astronaut/Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Stafford USAF Ret. WERE OUR TWO MILITARY LEADERS AT PEARL HARBOR LEFT OUT OF THE LOOP? 'Smoking Guns' May Answer the Question For seventy years there has been the question about why our military in Hawaii was not prepared and on alert when the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. Both Army Lt. Gen. Walter Short and Navy Vice Adm. Husband Kimmel had publicly boasted they could protect Hawaii from an aerial attack. Author John Martin Meek in ten years of research has found several 'smoking guns' showing their strategies deeply flawed, not operative and numerous warning signs of a possible Japanese attack ignored.
