Description: The Battle of Midway (Japanese: ミッドウェー海戦) is widely regarded as the most important rnnaval battle of the Pacific Campaign of World War II. Between 4 and 7 June 1942, rnapproximately one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea and six months after Japan's attack on rnPearl Harbor, the United States Navy decisively defeated an Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) attack rnagainst Midway Atoll, inflicting irreparable damage on the Japanese.rnrnThe Japanese operation, like the earlier attack on Pearl Harbor, aimed to eliminate the United rnStates as a strategic power in the Pacific, thereby giving Japan a free hand in establishing its rnGreater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere. It was hoped another demoralizing defeat would force rnthe U.S. to negotiate an end to the Pacific War on conditions favorable to Japan.rnrnThe Japanese plan was to lure the United States' few remaining aircraft carriers into a trap. The rnJapanese also intended to occupy Midway Atoll as part of an overall plan to extend their defensive rnperimeter in response to the Doolittle Raid. This operation was considered preparatory for further rnattacks against Fiji and Samoa.rnrnThe plan was handicapped by faulty Japanese assumptions of American reaction and poor initial rndispositions. Most significantly, American codebreakers were able to determine the date and rnlocation of the attack, enabling the forewarned U.S. Navy to set up an ambush of its own. Four rnJapanese aircraft carriers and a heavy cruiser were sunk in exchange for one American aircraft rncarrier and a destroyer. The heavy losses in carriers and aircrews permanently weakened the rnImperial Japanese Navy. Japan's shipbuilding and pilot training programs were unable to keep rnpace in replacing their losses, while the U.S. steadily increased output in both areas.
