BURNING JAPANESE AIRCRAFT CARRIER during a bombing attack at the
Battle of Midway, 3??6 June 1942. The Japanese Grand Fleet, comprised of 4
aircraft carriers, 11 battleships, 14 cruisers, 58 destroyers, and all the requisite
auxiliaries, left Japan to engage the U.S. Fleet in a major battle, if possible, and
at the same time to occupy Midway Island. The U.S. Fleet, warned of the
impending attack, divided its ships into two carrier task forces consisting in all
of 3 aircraft carriers, 8 cruisers, and 14 destroyers. Twenty-five submarines
covered all the approaches and heavy and medium bombers were flown to
Midway to supplement the air power on the island.
