OVERVIEW



The Battle of Midway was fought from June 4th until June 7th, 1942 between the United States and the Empire of Japan. It took place at the Midway Atoll as part of the Pacific Theater of World War 2 (1939-1945)and became one of the critical battles of all of the Second World War for both sides. This early major and decisive American victory turned the course of the Pacific War in favor of the Allies as the fighting ultimately claimed no fewer than four of the attacker's aircraft carriers and nearly 250 enemy aircraft. The Americans managed a stout defense of the Atoll largely due to code-breaking the Japanese intent. Taking place just six months after the events at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, the Battle of Midway was the American revenge of the surprise attack from December 1941 that brought the two nations into open war. For their attempt, the Japanese never recovered the manpower and material goods lost in this short-lived assault.

There are a total of 27 Battle of Midway Ships (June 4th - 7th, 1942) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator.
