What’s this? Two World War 2 posts in a single week? Back to back nonetheless? Crazy talk you say. No, this is history! 74 years ago, on June 07, 1942 Admiral Nimitz helped lead the Americans to successfully defeat an attacking Japanese Navy in the Battle of Midway.
This battle is often called the turning point of the Pacific theater. This was the first Allied victory against The Empire of Japan, and as such was a major moral boost after Pearl Harbor.
