Shattered Sword The Japanese Story of the Battle of Midway
By Jonathan Parshall, Anthony Tully

The Battle of Midway was one of the most famous battles of World War Two. Now, for the first time since Gordon Prange's bestselling Miracle at Midway, two authors offer a new interpretation of this great naval engagement. Unlike previous accounts, this book makes extensive use of Japanese primary sources which correct previous accounts and assumptions of the battle. This book forces a major, potentially controversial, re-evaluation of the great battle. The authors re-assess the battle in great detail and within the context of the Imperial Navy's doctrine and technology. Midway is the battle which turned the tide of the Pacific war during WWII - and one of the most famous naval battles in history. This is the first time that the Japanese side has been so fully presented and explained through use of Japanese primary sources. This book debunks popular myths about the Battle of Midway, including some concerning its defining moment of the Americans' last-minute dive-bombing attack.
